We are very thankful that the room came together so well and we couldn't be happier with it. I know I had some doubts when Jill told me we were going to use the same color on the wall. I really questioned if flat and satin would really make that much difference --- but as you can see by how it turned out, I should just keep my mouth shut and trust her.
We tried to time the pictures so that we would be able to get some of K when he was asleep and some when he was awake. But once again K continues to teach us that planning and him do not really go together. He woke up while Ruthie was taking some quick shots of the room and once he's up ---- he's up!
Thank's again Ruthie - We love them all!

K wanted to celebrate Trout Day, March 1, with the rest of Cassville, MO. This is the one day where the towns population (2741) is tripled and flooded with fisherman coming to Roaring River State Park to throw their line in at the opening siren. While the event may seem uneventful to some, all the kids in town have the date circled on their calendars as this is treated as a "town holiday" and school is let out for the day. Apparently K is going to participate when he gets older as he was up and ready to go at 5:30 just so that he could encourage his fellow fishermen.

Although this large outfit hides his weight gain well, our visit to the doctor confirmed our suspicions -- K quickly shot passed his birth weight and gained two pounds since his first visit. Our doctor said that this was a little more than most boys but she was put a positive spin on it by saying she was encouraged and confident that he was getting enough to eat.
The end of the month resulted in enough head strength and growth so that he could be moved out of the corner for his picture. Although he couldn't sit up like this for a long stretch of time, we were impressed that he sat up long enough for us to snap some quick pictures.
