My New Nephew










Here are pictures of my new nephew. His name is Michael Hutchins. Most likely his middle name will be Banazir. Megan and Michael are doing great, which is awesome since Michael was measured 21 inches and 10 lbs 5 oz!

Happy 2010!

Several of my friends have set this goal for the coming year, and I really like the plan so I'm going to join them. During 2010, I'm going to read 10 books from 10 different genres.
My list of genres is:
  • books I own but haven't read yet
  • books by general authorities
  • biographies
  • young adult/middle reader fiction
  • books recommended by others
  • classics
  • books with movie adaptations
  • non-fiction
  • award winners
  • Authors I've never read
So we'll see how it goes :)

4 month stats


I know it's a bit late, but:
weight: 12 lbs 4 1/2 oz (25%)
height: 23 in (50%)
head - 98% yep, she has a big head, hurray for c-sections.
Everything is normal and Kaitlyn is developing well. She has found her voice and loves to talk to people. She also likes to play with her toes, her seahorse, and chew on things. Unfortunately, she is teething but she's being a little trooper about it. Kaitlyn keeps us on our toes and is always willing to cheer us up with a smile. She has rolled over, tummy to back, once - and was very surprised that she'd done it. She has grown out of her 0-3 month clothes but is still a bit too small for her 3-6 month clothes, so her clothes look like they're going to fall off (especially her pants since she doesn't have the chub to keep them up).

And We're Back


Here's the ginormously long update. For Halloween Kaitlyn was a pumpkin. We went to my parent's house and my dad and I took Kaitlyn trick or treating. She loved being outside and visiting other people. We went to three houses :) Thanksgiving brought us to Boise with the Browns. We enjoyed lots of games, yummy food, and fun family. We put up the Christmas tree and had fun with cousin Thomas. Kaitlyn is excited for her new cousins to get here this year - one in January and one in June. For Christmas we went to Grandma Z's on Christmas Eve. It was so much fun to see everyone. Christmas morning we got to spend together as our own little family - and loved every minute of it! Kaitlyn got a seahorse named Shelby that plays music. She loves it! She likes to talk to it, hug it, and eat it of course! Later that afternoon we went up to my parents for dinner with my grandparents and all of my sister's in-laws. It was fun to play games and get to know the Petersons better. We are excited to begin a new year with our little family and look forward to everything it will bring.
