Our day :)

This morning I woke up with Kathryn's voice pleasantly talking over the monitor and E. J.'s alarm going off at 6:30 a.m... all while still feeling the effects of NyQuil from the night before. I wasn't surprised she woke up earlier than normal because she went to bed at 5:50 p.m. last night! Needless to say, it was tough getting out of bed this morning, especially for a Saturday!

I left work early on Friday because I had absolutely no voice. On top of having back issues all of this week, I also had a head cold brewing leaving me very congested with a sore throat. Today I have a little bit of my voice back but it sounds really froggy. Even Kathryn thinks it's funny because she was especially smiley today when I talked to her.

E. J. left at 7 a.m. this morning to do LOTS of overtime/off-duty work. Poor guy worked 8 a.m.-1 a.m. today/Sunday on two different jobs and should be home at 2 a.m. He's definitely going to crash once he gets home!

So without him here today, it was just me and Ms. Kathryn spending a pleasant Saturday together.
Good Morning!
(This is actually a happy face avoiding the flash)
After waking up and starting her day, Kathryn...
Feverishly texted
Played in her Exersaucer
Practiced her sitting-up skills (she can't get herself into this position,
but her control is getting much better. She's almost there!)
Spent some time playing on the floor.
Helped me write a paper for school.
This is what she thinks of homework.
I completely agree.
Went for a walk.
And of course, we took Maddie and Oliver along with us.
Helped me cook dinner.
The final result: Penne with braised short ribs. Delish! One of my favorite recipes! It's definitely not a dish for a weekday because it does take a while to make, but I highly recommend giving it a try. You can find the recipe here.
Back to K's activities for the day. It was then time for one of her favorite parts of the day,
Chowed down on some delightful rice cereal sporting her
personalized bib thanks to my very crafty Aunt Sue! "Katie-bug"
Cuddled with mom before bed time.
It was a great day with my little girl, but now it's time for me to get back to working on that stupid paper. Can't wait until it's DONE!
