Kate Evangeline: Month 9

Kate turned 9 months earlier this month; I told my friend Rachel, who is designing this month-by-month for me that I can't believe there are only 3 more squares left!

Kate's stats:
Weight: 22 pounds, off the charts
Height: 28 inches, 70th percentile
Head circ.: 18 3/4 inches, 80th percentile

Maggie @ 9 month:
Weight: 22.5 pounds
Height: 27.5 inches

Curren @ 9 months: I can't find them! Perhaps he never went...

date night

We enjoyed a wonderful date night with my sister and brother-in-law on Monday night. They are truly our most favorite people. Drinks at an Irish pub, then dinner at Fisherman's Wharf in San Clemente, right on the pier. The ocean is amazingly beautiful. As long as I've lived in SoCal, it really never ceases to take my breath away.

Sidenote: I LOVE my new necklace. I have had my eye on it for a long time (made by the talented Jessica from Allora Handmade). On Friday last week, I went to an awesome handmade market on Friday night with some girlfriends and bought it. Happy Mother's Day to me!

what we've been up to

It's been a busy, though relatively-stress free couple of weeks (all evidence of God's great grace): we made another move (locally)! I think we are experts at this point, as several of my friends have joked, and should start a business on "how to move well." We are poised to make some significant changes in our lives! Hoping for further clarity in the weeks to come.
Maggie holding our bus roll. I LOVE this new family art piece. My friend, Lindsey, designed one for her family last year and I loved it so much, I immediately asked her to design one for us. It's list of all the places we've lived. Bus rolls were once used to alert riders to upcoming destinations.

Most of our stuff is paired down, paired down, paired down and now in storage.

Sweet Kate has been loving time in the swing! We've been having beautiful spring weather here.
Oh, C is ALL boy on so many levels. Give him paint and watch him paint in the designated area with Mags and turn around and he's running around the backyard pouring paint everywhere.
