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.
When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. What you’ll need. Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water Ice Coffee creamer of your choice Heavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. Step one. Get your ingredients out. I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. Mix it real good. Time to cool it down. Now comes the sweet part. This next step is money. Lordy. If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce. Do it. If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck. This is the recipe from my mother in law. It is life changing. Ta-Da! Tag me on Instagram at
