A busy week and a half or so for us, with lots going on. Valentines Day weekend we traveled up to Caribou for the weekend, and spent time with family. It was great time. Below are some pictures of family.

Valentine's Day

I have to take this opportunity to brag about how advanced my 3 month old is. She's probably a little genius. She has apparently figured out not only how to use the Internet, but Daddy's credit card as well (YIKES!). She does have excellent taste though! Kaitlyn ordered me a "bouquet" of chocolate-dipped strawberries from Edible Arrangements.

Kaitlyn also "made" her dad and I a Valentine's card at day care. They inked her feet and put her feet prints on it. It's so cute.

We are spending the weekend up in Caribou. Kevin will post some of those pictures later in the week, since we'll be heading back to Portland tomorrow afternoon. In the meantime, Kaitlyn is in bed. So, I am off to watch The Amazing Race with Kevin.

Portland Winterush

During this week in Portland, there is a winter festival ongoing at all of the city's parks, called Portland Winterush. There is sledding, ski jumps, children's activities, and many many other events going on. The one we looked forward to was the snow and ice sculpture display set up at Lincoln Park, which is right next to the courthouse and police station where Kevin works. Below are some pictures, it was a great time.

Kaitlyn being Kaitlyn

Hey everybody. Sorry we haven't posted in so long, seems like time has been flying and we've been very busy. Hard to believe February is already here. Things are going well, Kaitlyn is smiling a lot more and finding new ways to communicate every day. Her latest thing has been grasping objects, which she is getting really good at it. She has a couple really good friends, Larry the Lion and her panda. She loves them both and actively reaches out to grasp them. Below are a couple videos of Kaitlyn.
