Yesterday Kate had her 6 month check up. A few weeks late but we made it. Her doctor is thrilled at her progress. Our girl is 27 inches long, in the 90th% for height and weighed in at 16.3 pounds, 50% in weight. She is going to be tall and thin, built just like her Auntie M! The Dr. was thrilled with the progress of her hemangioma. She is confident that it will be gone within a year to 15 months from now. We are so thankful! It has not opened up since February and there have been no problems with it. Thank you Lord. Kate got the last of her "oral shot" yesterday along with 2 shots in her leg. She cried for a second and as soon as I picked her up she was perfect. No tears and no fuss, she is amazing! We are so thankful for her pediatrician, love her so much. If any of you are in need of one please contact me and I would love to pass her name on to you. In other Kate news... her 2 top front teeth are about to pop through. She is definitely going to look like a bunny! ha ha...she is doing well with teething, a little fussy but the worst part is her congestion. Life is good. Kate is amazing, thank you all for praying for our sweet girl.

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
