Best App Ever

To sum it up: Best. App. Ever.


If you're like me, well me a few days ago, you have about 12 different store-related cards on your keyring. They didn't weigh me down, just made my already bulky keychain even bulkier. I lost my Barnes & Noble card eons ago - they always have to look me up by my phone number. For the longest time, until Reid could remember what phone number (an old cell #) that we had our Kroger card tied to, we were using separate rewards cards when we went to Kroger...and, as a result, not getting the biggest discount on gas at the pump based on our monthly spending. Until recently I also had all of my cards on a ring that easily opened to add more, which inevitably lead to them spilling out into my purse, onto the floor, you get the picture.

Well, there's an app to fix this problem. Best of all, it's a freebie! Key Ring App (Alleluia!)

That's right, sports fans, all of your rewards cards can now easily be stored on your phone.

You're welcome.

Cate - More Milestones

Every day with Cate is a new adventure! Last night, she reached another can read about it by viewing the text messages between Reid & me. My messages are in the blue, his are in yellow. Enjoy!

Chat with you more tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
Think of me when you are actually getting sleep...

Cate has determined it is time to wake up for the day...jealous???
4:35 AM, Jul 8

*Editor's Note - it was actually 4:11 AM when she woke...silly me, I thought it wasn't going to be for the day...

On a good note, she pulled herself up to a standing position...on a bad one, it was in the bassinet, which I have since had to dismantle as quietly as possible in the dark...
4:42 AM, Jul 8

Back to alarm set to go off only in 1 hr, 17 min, but REALLY, who's counting???

Cate - 7 months

Cate is changing so much every day...I hesitate to say 'filling out' as I have washed up the 6-12 month clothing that Elizabeth wore and already switched out the 3-6 month items with the larger ones. Yesterday when I put a 6-9 month onesie that Elizabeth had worn, it ripped near the snaps. I don't believe it was the age of the onesie that caused it to rip as it barely snapped before she stretched 'riiiiiippppppp'! Gracious sakes! The girl loves to eat.

Her cry when she gets tired or hungry these days is rather amusing - other than the obvious (that it's a cry!) She makes a spitting car sound "Brrrrrr Whaaaaaa Brrrrrr Whaaaaaa." Pretty funny sounding way of crying.

She has done quite well with eating the fruits and veggies with her rice cereal. I'm also most pleased that she doesn't require the food to be heated up...will even do the fruit/veggies right from the refrigerator. (Unlike when she is taking a bottle and that had better be at the same temperature that breast milk comes when she is nursing - otherwise she won't take the bottle!)

When I last spoke with Kristin, she requested the 6 month pictures of E & C side-by-side for better comparison of how similar the girls look, so I'm well as the latest installment of Cate's quilt picture (you should be able to click on both pictures to view them larger):
