New year, new role, new hours….


I’m happy to say, Kyle and I had a wonderful first Christmas with our little Kamden. We’re looking forward to the future, when he will remember them and understand what’s going on. He was a trooper, and did pretty well seeing all of his relatives on both sides of Kyle’s family. I am pretty proud of the little guy, and he loves all of his gifts!


Kam's 1st Christmas


We’re already into the new year and as we said good-bye to 2011, I made a couple of resolutions for 2012.    One, of course, is to get my pre-baby body back.  Another is to try to be more patient with those around me.  But my biggest resolution, is to make my family, my most important priority.   I’m happy to say I’m lucky enough to work at a station that understands that priority.  Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been anchoring the 10:00pm news since the beginning of the year.   It’s because I’ve moved into a new role here at WREX.   I have taken on a more behind-the-scenes role of content manager during the day.  Which means I set up the stories you see on the air during the newscasts.  I’ll also keep co-anchoring the 5 & 6 shows with Eric Wilson.  The move allows me to have more of a supervisory role at the station and keep doing what I love but, I’ll be able to be at home with my family at night.  I’ve been doing it for the past week now, and have to say I love being at home in time to put Kamden to bed!

    Happy New Year to you and your family too, Katie! Kamden is growing, and sure is a “cutie!” It’s great to have you back on the 5 and 6 PM news, and I am sure you appreciate being home in the evenings with your family! Congratulations, on your new role at the studio as content manager, I know you will be great!
    Take care, and Happy New Year again!

    I love reading about you and your family, Katie! I think it was a great idea for you and Dani to keep your viewing public informed about the progress of your pregnancies, your babies’ arrivals, and your thoughts & feelings adjusting to your new “roles” as MOMs. I re-live some of those same thoughts & feelings from 26 and almost 28 years ago when I had my boys. Since I am 63 yrs. old now, I was almost 36 & 38 when I had my sons! Being a mother was a lot of work for me (I had no family support & their dad was un-involved). I’ve been divorced for 12 yrs., and live alone in Poplar Grove. My sons live 1.5 to 2 hrs. away by car, but I don’t see them much because of their busy lives, and my health issues make it difficult for me to drive to visit them. So, I’ll continue to share your joy and perhaps shed a tear or two when I see moms and their little ones…..
    Thanks for your time in reading this and writing your blog. Hugs to all of you and my wishes for you to enjoy all the best life has to offer in 2012!

    Your little Kamden is growing nicely…try to avoid solid foods for him till he is about 6 months…his intestines cannot digest the heavier foods yet.. I am so happy for you with your new role at wrex…I enjoy hearing you as you report the news. God bless you and your family.
