Progress

There are quite a few things that are "progressing" quite nicely. Katanya had a weight check yesterday to make sure things were going good and she is a proud seven pounds fifteen ounces! That is two pounds in two weeks. The doctor called her a "tanker" and said everything was looking great. They said she would be on a schedule of a regular two month old when she was two months. It still seems wierd to me because her due date was the 13th of August. She is doing a lot better outside the womb than she would have inside. All my babies have been in the six pound range, no bigger than six pounds six ounces. It's amazing how strong willed and determined she is.
Jake was in Beaver for five days and when he came back on Tuesday he said Katanya had gotten so much bigger. I don't know how much he meant but she probably did. Even Axel commented how big she had gotten since they had left. She is completely out of the preemie clothes and into newborn. They fit her just right.
Look at those cheeks!!!!A few other things that are progressing is finally the house. As I mentioned earlier, Jake and Axel went down to Beaver and started the cabinets. Not only did they start, they finished them as well. They are completely done except for putting the handles on and assembling the doors to the cabinets. They turned out really nice from what I have seen. I will take pictures when they are up in the house.We went to the house last night as the men unloaded the cabinets in to the garage. The kids had a water fight with Axel (surprise surprise). I had told them they would get cold but they still got wet. Kirsten suckered dad's shirt off his back and McKay continued to get wet. For her, it was all about getting Axel. She has enjoyed having him around. Cruz played in the jeep and would throw the water balloons at the grass so he could get more. As he would throw them he would look up and say "Pop!" As for the rest of the house "progressing", they finally started sheet rock yesterday. They said that it would be all hung at the end of this week and then it would be finished in a week and a half. I have heard it goes a lot faster after the sheet rock is up. I hope this is true. I am excited for the paint to see how our colors come together. Our goal is September first to be in. I took this picture and posted it for fun. I often tease Jake and say these are his "TOYS". He doesn't like it when I say that. It just looks like he has so much fun in them that they are "TOYS" in a way.

Wow, in that first picture she looks just like her sisters. Usually babies all look alike to me for the first few months. haha. But not Katanya!

Update on Aspen (the baby that was born the same day as Katanya, ten weeks early) Jake stopped by baby Aspen's house on the to town today. Her dad was out working in their yard. She came home from the hospital three days ago and is a little over five pounds. She is doing really good now.

That's great news. Natalie has the same shirt Katanya is wearing in the first picture! My relief society pres. gave it to her when she came home from the hospital.

SO cute! I can't believe those cheeks.
I also can't believe that Jake has a truck that big. Actually, I guess I can believe it.

She is so fat! I can't believe the difference. She must change every day. It is fun to actually watch babies grow. Katanya is so cute!
