Aurora is 7 Months Old!

Woah!  This keeps happening..she's getting so big, and so smart..it's insane!

7 months!  It just sounds so old!!  She's already too good for "baby" things..like snuggling!

Her and Aster have some sort of special love bond...it's really cute.  He doesn't like anyone..and he's the last one I expected to crawl in her lap.

Still stylish!

She had her first food, sweet potatoes.  She likes them.  She's pretty much eaten everything we've given her.
Our first trip to the zoo.

She's mobile.  At the time she could only go backwards...she's moving forwards now..we're in trouble.

Still working on the selfie..

Can you see those jellies...adorable!

Her first piece of art..she'll be famous some day I'm sure.

We tried the sippy cup..and she hates it.  We're still working on it...she still hates it.

She's literally more fun every single day.  She is the best!  Pictures don't even begin to capture her..but we try.

Aurora's 6 Month Photo Shoot

You can't even handle this right now!  Today the disk with Aurora's pictures finally came!  She was a total turd all day, but the images came out pretty great anyway.  I can't recommend our photographers enough.  If you are in need, do consider The Mullikin Studio.  They are wonderful people!
These are some of my favorites...it's pretty hard to choose, but I'll spare you all of them...unless you ask me..then I'll make you look!

 I love love love this one.

We're such a happy family!

Easter 2014

Aurora had her first Easter this year!  This was of course the perfect occasion to get a pretty little Easter dress.  Don't be fooled, her dad picked this one out, he loves Easter dresses.
Her first Easter was pretty great!  The Easter Bunny visited and left things for her both at home and at Grammy's home.  She got tons of great stuff, like new spoons and bibs, several books, an adorable outfit for summer, and he even left some sunglasses at Grammy's..he must know we're going to break out the pool as soon as it's a touch warmer.  
The family all went down to Grammy's house and we had a great meal together. We went down the day before to help set up, and we managed to find some time to take some really cute pictures in her really cute dress.  These are some of my favorites.

 Her favorite part was the empty plastic eggs.

 Isn't that little bench adorable!  Her Granddad got it for her.  Thanks Granddad! 

 We went down by the lake to get some shots in the shade of the willow tree.  You can't see the tree, but this picture is cute anyway.

I know I promised 6 month photos..we're still waiting on the disk to arrive in the mail.  She'll be 7 months old on Thursday, we'll have a recap of the month later this week...it's been the best one yet!  She is more fun every single day!

UCM Graduation Card

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter (I'm currently uploading all the cuteness that went down, so look for that) But in the meantime..
I've been pretty busy making invitations for my sister's graduation party.  She's graduating this year with a double degree, one in Biology and one in Modern Languages.  It's pretty impressive, so we need to PAR-TAY!

 UCM in Warrensburg is black and red.  Go Mules.

The card itself is pretty simple..it becomes a pain when you make a bunch of them.  I love the bow on this one.

Now that these invites are off my table, I can get back to Aurora's baby book.
Oh, by the way, her 6 month professional pictures are back, so I'll be sharing them soon! AND this week she turns 7 months old!  Shut the front door...I don't know where this time is going but we're all loving it for sure!
Stay tuned for more.
Same bat time, same bat channel.
