Aurora is 4 Months Old!

Wow.  4 months already.  We are enjoying every single day.  She is more and more fun all the time.  You can actually watch her's insane.
We had our 4 month check up yesterday.  Here are our stats:
Length: 25 1/4 inches (90th percentile)
Weight: 15 pounds 7 oz (90th percentile)  See...she's eating enough..
Head circumference: 16 3/4 inches (90th percentile)  She gets this from her dad.

She's so big already!

And stylish to boot!

We started school (daycare) this month.  She seems to like it.  She's picked up some interesting screaming..just to hear herself.  Fun.

She prefers to sit up, so we cheat sometimes and use the Bumbo, so we can face each other.  She's putting everything in her mouth.  She's reaching and grabbing for things..and actually getting them. She likes being read to, but prefers books with bright colors.

She's a foxy lady!

We've been on a play date, with her new lover Andrew. We had a great time, and can't wait to play again.

We went to the aquarium, and loved it!  We got a season pass for Christmas, so we'll be going all the time.

It's pretty rare to get smiles on camera..but she does it all the time.

She's still a super sleeper.  We finally outgrew our Miracle Blanket (if you have a baby, get one..right now) So we quit swaddling cold problems.  She transitioned to a sleep sack just fine..I don't know why we were worried.  

Everything is going really well at Casa de Rodgers.  The dogs love her.  We can't wait for some nicer weather so we can go for more walks, and go to the zoo.  

We're on our way to being 5 months old..don't miss it!

Aurora's 3 Month Photo Shoot

Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!
What better way to ring in the new year than with some adorable baby photos?
We finally got Aurora's 3 month photos back.  They turned out surprising cute, considering she was having a crappy day. I'll go ahead and say it again, if you're looking for a photographer of any kind, do consider The Mullikin Studio.  They were so patient, and managed to get some cute shots.  

She was ultra suspicious of the camera.  She does the same thing at home.  She'll be talking or smiling, and as soon as the camera comes out..she's done. Turd.

She liked the texture of this blanket.  

Half way decent family shot.  She had had enough for sure by this time. 

I love this one..we're kissing, all happy with our little family, and she is wailing.  

She finally passed out.  We were tempted to just leave her for the day!

Happy New Year!
