Liberty Kate you are . . .

SIX Months Old!

 You weigh 15 lbs 3.5 oz.

You are 26.5 inches long.

You wear clothing from 3-6 months through 6-12 months. We like dresses a little longer and you have long arms.

You wear a size 2 disposable diaper and a small cloth diaper cover.

 You can almost sit up, just a little wobbliness left.

You have been rolling over from belly to back for a couple of months and get very made when you find yourself stuck on your back.

You push back with your arms while on your belly and can scoot across the floor.

You also arch your back and push with you legs and can scoot on your back.

 You helped Ty turn 10.

You make your first trip to the zoo this week.

You had a rough week and your sleeping was interrupted but you are back to sleeping 10 hours straight.

You still sleep in Mommy and Daddy's room in the mini crib.

You are 24.5 inches long.

You wear 0-3 month clothes.

You are between shoe sizes so you frequently go without.

Your hair seems to have some curl to it and the nickname "Red" may have been used a few times.

Liberty Kate . . . .

you are TWO months old!

You are our first child to share a birth "day" with a sibling. You and Ben were both born on the 3rd of the month. I was so busy with Ben's party and birthday celebrations that I didn't get your picture and stats until the 7th.

This picture is your "I'm part of the Lawrence family" proof. Kent has a cousin with a little boy and he and Liberty favor greatly.

You are up to 12 lbs. 10 oz.

You are 24 inches long.

You wear a size 1 disposable diaper and 0-3 month clothes.

 You've been "everywhere man" lately. You visited the Dixon's in MO, the Osgatharp's in Fayetteville and helped with an auction in Centerville. You are an excellent traveler most of the time.

You are sleeping anywhere from 8-10 hours at night in the mini-crib in Mommy and Daddy's room. I nurse you around 10 but it's frequently 11:30 before you'll go to sleep.

During the day you nurse every 2-3 hours.

You are smiling and make some of the sweetest noises.

Your hair shows no signs of taming down anytime soon. The only way it lays flat is if I comb it until dry or if you are in your carseat with damp hair and it dries with the pressure of the seat pushing on it. It has a slight curl to the end so I'm curious if it will be as straight as your brother's and sister's hair.

You are the sweetest little baby. You rarely fuss and love to cuddle.

We feel incredibly blessed that God allowed us to be your family.

Liberty Kate . . .

you are ONE month old!

 You weigh 11 lbs 3 oz.

You are 22.5 inches long.

Your head is 39 cm.

You wear 0-3 months clothes.

We are using cloth diapers at home. You wear a preemie diaper and an extra small cover. You wear a size 1 Huggies when out.

You are a night owl and generally don't like to go to sleep until at least midnight. Once asleep, you normally stay that way for 4-5 hours.

You nurse every 2-3 hours during the day.

You hate your bed but think Mommy and Daddy's bed is wonderful.

You missed your 3 week stats because Mommy had a rough kidney infection and spent a week in bed. You kept me company which is why you think our bed is best.

You helped Henry celebrate a birthday.

You are growing like crazy.

Everyone loves to love on you, you are such a sweetheart.

You had a busy week!

You spent a day at Daddy's office.

You had your first real bath and like the rest of the Witcher babies, your hair got lighter.

You gave Mommy another reason to be thankful for a precious gift on Mother's Day.

You helped Mommy and Daddy celebrate 14 years of marriage. As Madisyn said, "14 years and 7 kids."

Homefest fun

Today we loaded up and headed to Bald Knob for the annual Homefest celebration.

Even though it literally "Rained on our Parade", Liberty enjoyed her first parade experience complete with fire trucks, police cars, Smokey the Bear, a marching band, tractors and horses.

 Four pretty ladies modeled their strawberry outfits donned especially for the occasion.

 Granddaddy found a couple of little girls who were up for some fun!

 In honor of Mother's Day we took Mom out to lunch at the Chinese restaurant.

The boys were a little confused as to what language you might speak in China and kept asking Kent to tell them how to say things like friend, hello and goodbye in Spanish. LOL

Today is also National Train Day so we took the train loving boys to visit the depot. The Lionel club had a special display set up.

10 cousins all in a row. How in the world does the photographer for the Duggar Family get them all looking at once?!?

We also got the first picture of all seven of our blessings.

What a joy you are!

You have been travelling this week.

You are a sweet little girl who prefers to touch Mommy while sleeping unless you are snuggled in the car seat.

You nurse about every two hours during the day and every 3 at night.

Mommy and Madisyn are having a blast dressing you a Mary Claire in matching outfits.

We all are incredibly thankful to have you on the "outside". ;-)
