Trip to the Lake

This past weekend, Grandpa and Grandma Frank, Aunt Katie, Uncle Mike and Cousin Jacob came to visit. We had a wonderful time catching up and giving Jacob and Ethan a chance to get to know each other better. Ethan isn't quite ready for playtime yet with his cousin, but he did enjoy spending time with him, as you can see in the picture. :)

Grandma Frank was excited to get to spend the weekend with both of her grandchildren and even had the opportunity to babysit them (along with help from Katie and Mike) Friday night while Josh and Kristy had their first "date night" since having Ethan. They enjoyed a lovely evening and dinner on the patio at the Southern Harbour Cafe located on West Point Lake. If you ever have the chance to visit, you must try their spicy cajun BBQ shrimp - incredible!!

On Saturday afternoon, we decided to make another trip back to the lake, but everyone came along this time - even Daisy! :) It was a gorgeous 88-degree, breezy, sunny afternoon. We enjoyed the day playing on the playground (sand and all), swinging, feeding the geese (plus their babies!) and hanging out at a picnic shelter. It was a wonderful way to enjoy the great weather. We rounded out the evening with a yummy dinner of grilled steak and chicken kabobs and homemade strawberry shortcake! :)

Sunday morning came and everyone left to go back to Ohio. It was a great visit and we hope to do it again soon! Visit Kristy's facebook page for pics from the weekend!

Ethan's One Month Check-Up

I took Ethan for his one month check-up yesterday in Newnan. He is doing great according to his pediatrician, Dr. Kemi! Since birth, he has gained 2 lbs, 5 ozs, to weigh in at an impressive 10 lbs, 12 ozs, which is in the 75th percentile. He grew 2 inches from his birth length of 20 inches, to a length of 22 inches now, which is in the 50-75th percentile. His head circumference has also increased to 39 1/2 cm, so he is in the 75th percentile for this as well! Everything else looked and sounded good, so now we go back in another month when he will get his first round of shots! :(

Below is a pic of Ethan at one month, wearing a 12-month onesie. I will be taking a pic each month is this onesie to show how much he grows each month! By the looks of the way it is fitting at just one month, we may be lucky to get him in it at 12 months!! haha :)


I have posted more pics of Ethan on my facebook page. Click here for the first album and here for the second! :) If you want to check out pics from my pregnancy, click here.

I also have an album with pics of our new house in Georgia, which can be found by clicking here. And a second album can be found here. I will be posting updated pics here as we finish painting and decorating! :)

And if that isn't enough pics to look at, you can check out some great ones from our most recent vacation to the Caribbean, by clicking here! :)

I will try to keep the blog updated with links everytime I add a new album. For easier access to our pics, add me as a friend on facebook!

Welcome to the Seeley Family blog! We will be using this blog to keep family and friends updated with our day-to-day lives since we live far away now and don't get to visit as often as we used to.

As you know, our family started on July 16, 2005 when Josh and I got married at the Christ Baptist Church in Cold Spring, Kentucky. A week after we returned from our honeymoon in St. Thomas, USVI, we moved to Georgetown, KY, where we lived in an apartment while our house was being built. In December 2005, we moved into our very first home together.

We expanded the family in March 2006 when we added Daisy Duke, a reverse brindle boxer. She was born February 2, 2006. She has been a joy to have and will always be considered our "firstborn child."

Most recently, we had our first human child, Ethan Paul Seeley. He was born March 3, 2009 at 12:05 pm. He weighed in at an impressive 8 lbs, 7.2 ozs and 20 inches long. After 35 hours of labor and 4 hours of active pushing, he finally arrived! He is now 5 weeks old and is doing great!
