Finally after over a month a new POST!

So Iyrlend is 5 months now! I can't believe how time flies everyone warns you but in the begining of course you don't realize how true it is. My good friend/cousin-in-law Mia just had a baby and when I went to see him I sounded like everyone when they saw Iyrlend because I just couldn't believe how small he was and I really don't remember her being that small even though she was actually smaller than him, it is truly crazy. I love Iyrlend's age though, she is always smiling and squeeling and laughing if Zach's around. She's laughed for me a few times but mostly just for Daddy. She never naps so my house is usually a total disaster and I'm lucky if I get to get ready for a the day which can be a problem since I'm going to school so life is a bit crazy but I love it. Being a mom is the hardest thing ever but definatly the most rewarding. And seeing Zach and how wonderful he is with her and what a great father he is one of the greatest things ever. Any way life is good in the Gates home. Between school, work, and being parents life is crazy and exciting. Here's a few pics or more like a whole ton of the one and only Iyrlend Brittyn.......(The first few pics are some older pics that my sister in law Dani took of Iyrlend and her daughter Maggie, I don't think I posted them yet and I don't know why so here they are now)

I cant believe she's already 5 months! She is so cute! Sounds like you guys are having a blast being parents, its exciting. I am actually here right now, my brother Josh and I spontaneously came down and left our spouses to do homework. And we're leaving soon. Next time I come I'll make sure you know so we can hang out! If your ever up there come have dinner or at least stop and say hi! I'll be better to keep in touch now that we're settled and in our routines.
