Late Night Postings

I always find myself blogging late at night. I don't know what it is but I have an affinity for writing at night. I don't really have much to say though. I just feel like I needed to write. So I guess I will post a few pictures with an update. I haven't posted pictures in quite sometime so this will be a nice break from the constant text. :)

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to lunch with some friends. The girls were all friends from my home ward that I was super close to. It has been four years since we were all in the same area so I jumped on the chance to see them all again.
Katie, Myself with Kathrynne, Alison, Kari, and Melissa who is expecting in December!

Going in order with the picture let me explain why we hadn't been close by... Back in 2010 Kari, Melissa, and myself all graduated. Katie and Alison graduated the year after. Kari went down to Cedar City to attend SUU, Melissa went to Ephraim and attended Snow College, I stayed in Utah County and attended BYU. After Katie and Ali graduated things just got worse. Katie got married and Ali went to BYU-Hawaii.

We all went somewhere different for school and then Ali and Kari went on missions. Melissa and I got married (Melissa found her man at BYU-H after she finished at Snow) and now the two of us will have kids come December.

It was nice to get together with these girls. We were really close and had a lot of fun catching up. We had lunch at Cafe Rio and of course, it was delicious as always.

This picture was taken just after we came out of a baptism for a man in our ward. His name is Kevin P... I don't remember how to spell it but it is said like meow but with a p. He is a super great guy and his wife has been a member for sometime now. Their son is 5 or 6 I believe. I can't remember for sure.

In any case I had to document this because it was the first time I had been to a baptism that was NOT for a child that just turned 8. I didn't really know many non-members growing up and didn't have the chance to serve a mission before getting married so this was an experience I knew I didn't want to forget. It was so amazing to see Kevin's wife so happy. They are from Shanghai, China and came out to Provo so she could go to school. They are a wonderful couple and I feel privileged  to have the chance to get to know them better.

Isn't this sooo cute?! It is a wooden glove that has slots for a bat, ball, and a glove. We got some bins from Chad's parents that are filled with his stuff and this just happened to be in it. Chad has a ton of baseball stuff... unfortunately it is all Padres stuff. I decided that we will need to get some SF Giants paraphernalia so we can do our future son's room baseball (Padre's and Giants specifically) themed. 

This just speaks cuteness does it not? Kathrynne has had a few great things happen this past month or so. She just rolled over the other day from her back to belly. She laughs and talks all of the time. There are also some days that Kathrynne doesn't mind sitting in her Bumbo, like in this picture. She sat in it for quite some time this day. I was a super proud momma. 

But come on... don't I just have an adorable daughter? I can't believe that she is mine and I am so thankful for her and the chance I have to be her mom. 

The following pictures are just cute ones of Kathrynne lately.

Okay... I think I sent this picture to Kayla but just incase I somehow forgot to send it to her...
Kayla gave us these cute socks and the diaper cover. I had to put them on Kathrynne. I love them on her. 

Her first pair of tights!

The cutie sleeping in my arms. She likes to cuddle a lot more lately. 

I have always loved the sunsets in Utah. Unfortunately this picture doesn't give it nearly enough justice. It came from my phone so I guess it will have to do. 

There was one day two weeks ago where Kathrynne woke up at 3 am and would NOT go back to sleep. I had only had around 3 hours of sleep at that point and I was so frustrated. I had to be up by 7 to get ready for a WIC appointment at 8am. On the drive over to the office Kathrynne finally fell asleep, although it didn't last long. I got there early so I sat in my car and just happened to look out the window. This next picture is what I saw. It was my saving grace that day. It helped me get through a very hard day. You have to love the temple. This is of the Provo City Center Temple by the way.

We went to dinner in SLC last week at Benihana's. I had never been there and loved it! We went with Sarah, Michael, and baby Theo as well as Rachel and Auntie J. It was nice to spend time with them.

She is just getting so big! She is already sleeping in a big girls bed!! JK!! I stole her away and put her in my bed for a bit while I changed clothes. She just looked so cute I had to take a picture.

Anyways, that is a bit of an update for the Lanham family. We head out of town tomorrow night to go to Grand Junction. Chad and I need a weekend away from the usual so this will be a nice break from the normal day to day.

Hope this finds you all well! This definitely has helped clear my mind and I think I can finally fall asleep now. Gotta love doing some late night posting. :)
