Eight and a half months!!!

Chilling out in the rocking chair...chewing on the camera case.
My daddy loves to lay under the tree and look up at the lights...and so do I!

Is there something in the water, mommy???
Love the tub!
Crawling around with my new sock monkey!

Can I get a drink for my coaster?
The coffee table has become my jungle gym. I crawl back and forth over it all day long!

Hi Everyone...

Just a quick update from Shady Side. We are all great down here and getting ready for Christmas. This season reallly seems to be flying by...maybe because Thanksgiving was so late?!! Last week we baked all of our Christmas cookies. Jimmy even sampled some of the gingerbread cookies (uninvited!) This past weekend, my grandparents came down to visit. It was a nice relaxing weekend. This week we have to finish wrapping gifts and Grandma and Pappy Kilian are coming down so that Mommy and Daddy can go to Daddy's Christmas party...and spend our first night away from our little pumpkin! We are excited, but of course a little sad to leave our baby for the first time !!!
Oh..and we will be in PA from 12/23-12/28. Hope to see you!
Enjoy the pictures!

Merry Christmas, Casey!

Is this my stocking, mom?

Hi Everyone...

Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. We did. Casey loved visiting all of her relatives and friends. She was a very good girl on Thanksgiving...she didn't really enjoy the meal as much as we thought she would, but there's always next year! Her top left tooth FINALLY popped through overnight!! YAY! We had a photo session at SEARS this past week and the pictures are too cute. They are the first two pictures above. We also took her to see Santa this morning. She was a little sleepy and not too sure of the big guy as you can see in the pictures, but at least she didn't cry! We got all of our decorations and tree done this weekend and are ready for CHRISTMAS! Casey loves to look at the tree and Jimmy loves to sleep under it! Hope to see you all soon~

Hi Everyone,
All is well in Shady Side. As I type, Kyle is outside hanging Christmas lights!!! We have had a nice November. Kyle's family visited and the boys caught lots of Striped Bass...a very exciting day for them! Kyle and I went to the Marine Corps Ball, where Chuck Norris was the guest of honor! Heather and Craig came down that weekend and watched Casey for us while we were out that night...apparently little Casey gave them a run for their money that night...and she did the same the next night for Mommy and Daddy. We think she's teething--but still no tooth --waiting on the top ones! All she wants for Christmas is her two front teeth! Ha ha!
Other than that, we're headed up to PA for Thanksgiving...looking forward to good food and fun with family and friends.
Hope you are all well and I'll update after Turkey Day :)

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all doing well. Casey is on the move. She is crawling very well on her hands and knees now and constantly trying to pull herself up on things. She is too cute! Here are some pictures of her from this past 2-3 weeks!

So cute :)
Hi , Casey!!!
Look what I can do!

Hi everyone,

Sorry it's been such a long time since my last post. We've been busy :)

We were up in PA for a week as my Nana had open heart surgery (she is recovering wonderfully--it is truly amazing how an 80 year old woman has so much spunk!!!). And in the midst of these past few weeks, our computer bit the dust so I was waiting for a new one. I also got a job teaching a master's level course with University of Phoenix online. I start training next Tuesday...wish me luck!

So now onto Casey-bug. She is doing great as usual. She is marine crawling all over the place, going from her belly to sitting and starting to try and pull herself up on everything. Therefore, we moved her crib all the way down and started really baby proofing our whole house. Fun, fun!

We hope you are all doing well and enjoying what finally feels like beautiful fall weather.

Take care and enjoy the pictures!!

Hi All...
Quick update. We are doing great. Enjoying the beautiful weather with lots of walks and sleeping with the windows wide open. Casey got her first tooth last Monday (bottom, front, right) and the one next to it is soon to come. She is trying very hard to crawl. She gets up on her hands and knees and rocks, and then falls forward. It won't be long until she's mobile and then what!???!! He he he!
Hope you are all doing well.
Take care.
Katie, Kyle, Casey and Jim
