Update... Far overdue!

Yep, it's Friday night and I have finally decided to take the time to blog. I really do mean well, and need to post more updates for those of you who track my/our life online.

So some updates from the Doughty Household:

Kenzee is knocking on the door of 4 months old! That is so hard for me to grasp because it seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. And just a year ago I didn't even know I was pregnant. Wow how time has changed! Kenzee is growing like a weed! She weighs in right at 13lbs, and is getting so long. She is such a happy baby, and loves to talk. She will give you a piece of her mind if you will let her.

Wriglee is adjusting well with his new sister. He is such a trooper when she cries. He has 2 favorite times of the day. One is when we give Kenzee a bath - he hasn't missed one yet! And the other is when Kenzee and I leave for work. I think he spends most of his day rotating from the couch to the bed. Wherever he can follow the sun!

I am back at work, mostly full time. Kenzee does very well at work, and has a good time charming everyone who will check in on her.

Kenzee is a wonderful traveler! She has been to 3 states, and stayed many nights away from home. (Not away from us.) Luckily we got the travel pack and play because it has logged many miles. We have traveled to Arkansas, Texas and Missouri (x's 2). In one week Kenzee and I logged 24 traveling hours in the car! She was ready to be home and out of the car - not to mention how ready I was to stay home!!!

One of our trips was to Odessa to introduce the little Princess to some family who hadn't met her in person, and to friends who prayed for her safe arrival. It was a lot of fun even if it was a short trip! It was nice to be able to share her with those friends who live many miles away, but continue to pray for us and her!

We have taken 2 trips to Missouri just to get away for a bit and we have had a lot of fun...

We are super ready for summer time! When we were in Odessa my daddy surprised us by saying he would love to give us their boat. I am stoked about that as Brian and I have thrown around the idea of some sort of recreational play toys. He and I didn't see eye to eye on what to buy (boat vs. jetski) so we didn't discuss it in depth. When daddy made the offer to give us the boat we jumped all over the idea! I can tell you a lot of my childhood memories are at the lake, so I hope to share those memories with Kenzee. I am looking forward to her learning to swim, ski, kneeboard, etc!!! I have a feeling I will be paying for all of the times I just HAD to jump in the water!

Really that is about it here in the Doughty Household. We are just watching our little Princess grow up right in front of our very eyes!
