Uncle Rudy

This week my brother Rudy came to visit before heading back up to work fishing in Alaska. For those of you familiar with the show "The Deadliest Catch", that is exactly what my brother does. So crazy!!! I think he is part of the same fleet of ships that are on the show. I'm not sure exactly but he knows the crews that are a part of the show. I have seen the show a few times but I have a hard time watching it because it scares me knowing that Rudy is out there doing such a dangerous job. He has shown us some pretty cool pictures though like ones of him laying in a big tank full of king crab. It was fun having him here and Kaylee loved getting to spend some time with her Uncle Rudy. The following are some pictures taken during Rudy's visit and I also included pictures of a few of his adventures in Alaska. Enjoy!

6 Months and Going Strong!!

Our little princess turned 6 months at the beginning of this month. We took her in for her 6 month check up and here are her stats:

Weight: 17 lbs. (75th Percentile)
Height: 28 in. (Off the charts!!!)
Head: 43 1/4 cm. (75th Percentile)

Just this last week Kaylee has discovered how to grab onto the side of her crib and pull herself up. Looks like we need to lower the bottom of the crib. I have to say though, I don't mind waking up to this beautiful little sunshine every morning. She is all smiles!!! She isn't usually cross eyed. I think it is because she is focusing in on my cell phone that I am taking the picture with. So funny!

Spending some good quality time with her Daddy. I love my babies!!! :)

She likes to hold one leg up in the air when she is drinking her bottle sometimes. I don't know why she does it but it makes us laugh every time.

So sleepy.
