Aurora is 3 Months Old!

I'm not sure when this happened, but Aurora is 3 months old today.  It's also Christmas Eve.
We've done a lot in the last month...like gotten a lot bigger.  She now can only wear just a few 0-3 month things.  But of course she seems to be swimming in the 3-6 month stuff...not for long I'm sure.

We had her first Thanksgiving at our house.  The whole family came over.  Even Tio Vlad.  He's her favorite. 

She's still a super sleeper.  We have great mornings.  

We play a lot on the floor.  She loves the activity mat...and the cat. 

Giraffes are her favorite..because Tia KT made sure of it. 

The dogs love the time we spend on the floor too.  They both really love her. She loves to watch them walk around too. 

We are way better at tummy time.  She's almost got control of her giant dome.  

We had her first Christmas party with my brothers and sisters.  She got lots of awesome stuff.  

She loves Tia almost as much as Tio. 

She thinks she's pretty cute. 

She had her professional 3 month photos taken..we're still waiting to get them back.  She was having a bad day, and I'm sure they're having trouble finding any good ones.  We'll have to wait and see.  
We're working hard to hit her 4 month milestones.  I went back to work last week, and I definitely miss her a lot!
Check back for more.

Plane Birthday Card

Hey, so I haven't done this in a while...
A card..
I did this one for a friend of mine's little boy who turned 2 in October.  Aurora was lucky enough to get an invite to his super cool plane themed party.  His mom did a great job..and set the bar high for A's first birthday.
I used the Cricut to cut the plane pieces.  I hand drew the clouds and added some white flocking to make them fluffy!  

I used silver embossing powder to make the propeller shiny..we don't have the technology to make it spin.

I've been working really hard on A's baby book..it's coming along nicely.  I've got a card or two on the horizon...but I'm betting baby pictures make it on here first.

Aurora is 2 Months Old!

We've been pretty busy this last month.  We're definitely getting the hang of this baby thing.

This last month has definitely been more fun.  She's awake more.  She's interested in stuff.
She's completely sleeping through the night, every night.  This means that she doesn't nap during the day, at all..which is hard sometimes.
We had our 2 month appointment yesterday (she's 10 weeks..but that's what happens when Thanksgiving holidays roll around...the doctor gets booked up.)  She's doing great.  She weighed in at 12lb 10oz  She's a little chunk.  She's 23 1/4 inches long.  With a head circumference of 16 inches.  She's 75th percentile for height, and 90th for both weight and dome size.  She's taking after her dad already.  

She's getting so big!

We hang out in our bouncer in the basement..we also bought a swing, hoping to encourage napping..she likes it ok..but she's not fooled into sleeping.

We visit Grammy a lot.  Daisy dog likes to get in the pen with her...she's looking for Aurora's pacifier...to chew.

Our first Halloween.  We went up to Weston to spend it with Jonathan's parents.

We've also been to mass.  She's only been to 1/2 a mass..Jon had to take her to the car half way through.

Tia KT brought Aurora this shirt from Belize..it's unBelizable!

We went to Cameron's 2nd birthday.  It was super fun!  4 toddlers and 4 babies.  We got our first mini-cold the following week.

She's got tons of great outfits!  We can hardly wear them all.

Oh, yeah!  And she smiles all the time!
I think we're really close to a laugh..I'm very excited!

Our 3 month pictures are coming up, I'm getting ready to head back to work, so things are going to get interesting around here.
