One Month Old Today

March 18, 2008

Kalyn is one month old today.  The month has gone by very quickly.  Kalyn is already growing and learning a lot.  One thing I was amazed at was how she already has so much personality.  She really is her own little person.

At one month old, Kalyn loves to look around.  She actually has done this since she was born.  She especially likes to look at windows and her mom and dad.  And, I’m sorry to say, she enjoys looking at computer screens.  She will often cry a bit just to get you to move her where she can see more interesting things. She also seems to enjoy laying on a blanket on a floor where she not only has a lot to look at, but can also kick her arms and legs around.

Kalyn also likes to cuddle against her mom and dad’s chest.   She enjoys having a heartbeat to listen to and will often put her ear up against the chest and then look up at the face of whoever is holding her.

Kalyn also has things she does not like.  There is nothing she hates more than being hungry, as this is the only thing she will consistently cry about.  She also doesn’t like being put in her car seat, although once she is in the car she is perfectly happy.  She also doesn’t like having things over her face, like when she is changing clothes.  She also seems to not like it when she is being held by someone who is paying more attention to a computer than her.

It is great to see her learn and grow.  She is the cutest, smartest baby ever born and brings both of us lots of joy and fun.

This picture is her on her one month old birthday.  Make sure to scroll down for a ton more baby pictures from the last month.

Tim’s Plastic Project

March 18, 2008

Tim is making a thermoform mold.  This mold is to make it easy to pack and ship DC50s without a bunch of excess shipping material.  Right now I am joining the particle board.  Once done, I will smooth everything out with the sander.  Then using heat, sheets of plastic are vacuum formed onto the surface and cooled to form a nice shaped packing thing.  I will put up a video once it is done.

Tons of Baby Pictures

March 18, 2008

We always forget to write things.  Anyway, Rebekah was complaining for more pictures so I’ve posted more.  Quite a few were from a series Katie wanted to do called, “A day in the life of the baby.”  However, she’s found she doesn’t have the energy to do it.

EDIT BY KATIE: I’ve added captions to many pictures.  Post by Tim, captions by Katie.

Katie and I are unlucky!

So I bought a chicken when it was one sale a week or two ago.  We’ve roasted  maybe 2 or 3 chickens in our wedded life.  I saved the wishbone and we broke it last week.

Unfortunately, neither of us got the top part.

We pulled it, and it cracked about 3/4 up each leg.  The top part flew off and spun somewhere in the kitchen.  We haven’t been able to find it yet. . .

So niether Katie nor I got our wish.  :-(
