Sneaky little kitty

I am convinced that Astro is trying to come up with a way to get a new family.  I think he really misses being the center of attention and wants to find a place where he’s the king (he thinks) again.  He woke us up this morning at 5:00 because he apparently decided that was a good time to jump up on the counter and knock over the vase of flowers that we got for Kate’s dedication.  After Chris had so nicely cleaned everything up and had just settled back into bed, Astro came tearing into the room,  took a flying leap off of Chris’ stomach and onto our headboard.  He then jumped off the headboard and flew into the bathroom where he proceeded to “row” in the toilet water, making quite a mess.  Oy.  This morning when I got up, this is what I found…


Yep, that’s Astro hiding out in the basket under the stroller.  I think he’s hoping I won’t notice, and then when I take Kate for a walk, he can just make a run for it.  Chris probably thinks that’s a great idea.  Me?  Not so much.  For as frustrating as he can be, I still love that little fuzz man!

We had Kate dedicated at church last week and she did very well! She looked so cute in her little polka dot dress, and I even (inadvertently) wore a matching necklace! Here are some pictures from the service:

There's Alyssia in the corner... Thanks for taking pictures, Lys!!

We had our families over for lunch after church, and my Aunt Kathy was nice enough to make Kate her first cake.  She didn’t get to eat any, obviously, but I think that I’ve eaten enough that her milk is probably cake flavored!!  : )


We also had Kate’s 4 month check up today (she’s not quite 4 months, but will be next week!).  She is now 13 lbs 15 oz (64th percentile) and is 25 inches long (82nd percentile).  I was a little surprised by her weight because I thought she would be heavier than that, but she had just spit up, so maybe that’s why.  : )  So that’s what’s new with us, what’s new with all of you??  (Mainly aimed at my friends who really need to update their blogs… you know who you are.)
