Fun times with a new friend

One of Matt's best friends from law school now lives and works in Washington D.C. (Mary Claire). Well, she had never met Katie, so this past weekend while she was in town, she came over to meet Miss Katie.

At first, MCYork was a little timid with Katie. She thought that she was going to break her. She just wanted to "poke" her instead. She kept saying over and over, "I just want to touch and squeeze those thighs." --referring to my daughter's overly chunky thighs.

Throughout the evening, Katie and MCYork became the best of friends. Mary Claire stopped poking and actually started holding.

Katie is a very happy baby anyways, but she just smiled at EVERYTHING Mary Claire did!! It was soooo cute.
Matt made Mary Claire feed Katie her dinner. I think it was MCYork's first time to feed a baby (though, it doesn't look much different than how she looks after we feed her). Just take a look at Katie's face - rather orange!!!

Mary Claire, thank you so much for taking time from your busy schedule to come see us and play with Katie. She loved you, and we sure enjoyed visiting with you! Next time you are in town, please come over.
If you are still in D.C. when Katie is older, we will bring her to see you!

I am absolutely in love with spring this year. I don't know if it is just because we had a really long winter or what, but I am just so happy.

I have always loved spring, but I love it even more with Katie. We go on a walk nearly every afternoon around the block. We lay on a blanket in the grass and watch Daddy work in the flowerbed. We sit on the back deck and just enjoy the sunshine on our skin. I love seeing Katie in little onesies because she has the CHUBBIEST little thighs :o)

I can't wait to give her a popsicle and see her reaction. I look forward to putting her in a little bathing suit and letting her experience the swimming pool for the first time.

This time of year is just so nice.

I cannot believe you are already 5 months old. You are just the best baby in the whole world. You smile at everyone that pays you attention - definitely a little ham! You are also very independent and love to be by yourself in the floor and roll around. You have just recently found your feet and love to pull your sockies off. You love to play in your exersaucer and watch t.v. Most of all, though, you love to play with Mommy and Daddy! We love that part of you :o)
We love you more than anything, baby girl!
Mommy and Daddy
