We saw this a few weeks ago just a few feet from Kaitlin while she was playing on her activity mat. That was the one and only time that I have ever seen a scorpion but I have no clue if there are more near our house. Has/does anyone else have a scorpion problem? What did you do to get rid of them.

Piglet's 3 Months Old

Yesterday Kaitlin turned 3 months old, it's hard to believe.

Here are a few facts about her at the 3-month stage.

1. She has started playing with toys. Rattles, her little Winnie the Pooh Bear, her blanket. She can actually grab them now. Piglet's still working on a tennis racket, but her hand isn't big enough to get around the handle yet. We'll keep working at it.

2. She's been sleeping through the night much more and less during the day.

3. She's loves to talk, well at least trying to. That is definitely something she gets from her Momma. We've been practicing saying Da-da and Yankees Stink about 15 minutes a day. She's working hard, but not there yet. Right now it sounds like aaaaaaaahhh!!! Not a cry, but a happy sound. I think Momma is confusing her during the day with other words she'd rather her say first.

4. She likes her Gator Mobile and the ceiling fan.

5. She's getting close to sitting up on her own. She still needs a little help though.

6. I put her in a standing position and she can hold herself up with help for about 10-15 seconds. Then she wants to rest. It looks like she's on a surf board.

7. I think she's got her Daddy's toes. They are all curled up and funny looking.

8. Her eyes have turned to a really dark brown, almost black. Her Great-Grandfather Totherow has the same color eyes.

9. Her hair is still a reddish tint, but its getting to be a darker reddish brown. It used to be more of a light reddish brown. The mullet is really starting to grow in. Still not much on top, just on the sides and back. Hopefully she will not have hair like her Daddy.

That is all for now. I'm sure we'll have more pictures from this upcoming weekend. She is getting baptised Sunday.

This Week

Kaitlin went for her 2 month well check on Monday. the doctor said that she was doing great and is 90% in weight at 13 lbs 13 oz and 60% in height at 23 1/2 inches. She also had some shots, 2 in each leg. Kaitlin was so cute just smiling away as I held her arms and the nurses had her legs and then she went to screaming as soon as gave her the first shots. Thankfully she calmed down fairly soon and slept the entire ride to Oxord. Here she is all nice and happy in Oxford. We came to Oxford for 2 reasons. One because Maggie has been here since we left for Savannah and the other is because Monday was Dad's birthday. He took off from work, slept in, did some yardwork, played golf, and ate his favorite dessert homemade banana icecream. Here he is with Kaitlin few weeks ago.

Here Kaitlin is with Granna. I know last time we talked about her name being Nana She She, Grandma, or Red but for some reason Mom wasn't too thrilled about any of those names so she's trying this one out for a few weeks.

Talkin Smack

Boston Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia is really climbing the ladder of my list of favorite players. Although I'm usually not a fan of loud mouths, or people that talk too much in general, this article made me like him even more.

And I'm just going to go on record and say that Manny is a punk.

Go Sox

Hey Y'all

We're in Savannah this week. Its a work trip for me, vacation for Chrissy and Piglet. It has been hot all week, except this afternoon when it started pouring down rain. Piglet was the only one not to get wet. Chrissy's highlight was going to Paula Dean's restaurant, "The Lady and Sons". Great food. I'd say its almost as good as Minnies in Columbus. On with the pictures!!

Kaitlin was happy to be on vacation. She has had a ball
We spent the first few nights walking around the city, but Chrissy got her wish and we ended up at The Lady and Sons on Wednesday.

Outside the Lady and Sons
Happy, but full

We had to walk off all of the good food we had. There are so many neat things to see in Savannah.

Walking on the river was fun.

But all that walking sure was tiring

Piglet wasn't too sure about the trolley tour. Whats up with this whole sticker thing?But after we got going, she realized how much fun it could be. Notice Piglet is wearing a different outfit than the picture before? That was the result of a big poopy. Mommy is getting so good at diaper duty (no pun intended on the duty part), that she changed the diaper and clothes in Piglet's carseat on the trolly while it was moving. No wonder I always want her to do it.
