Three Months Old

Wow! I cannot believe my little baby will be FOUR months old in a matter of days. Wanted to get this posted before it was too late! The transformation from two months to now has really been amazing. Our colic days have come to an end...YAY!!! She is dying to sit up and is happy as long as she can see the action. She gives us lots of smiles and has even started to cackle in the past few days. We started rice cereal and she LOVES it. She is sleeping for eight and nine hours at a time, which I am loving! We have had a lot of fun things going on lately and parenthood has become our new "normal". Things have been super busy and I have lots to post, but as usual I only have a few free minutes right now. The Thanksgiving holidays were wonderful and we had the chance to fly to South Carolina to visit Jermey's brother, sister-in-law and our precious nephew. I have lots of pictures and will try to get them up soon. I hope everyone is getting ready for Christmas, it is right around the corner!!!

Cutie Pie

When Anna Claire was six weeks old we had Moniqe McGonagill take some pictures of her. We were a little nervous, because that was right at the peak of her colic, and we knew a meltdown could occur at any minute. However, she did great and they turned out wonderful! Monqiue was so sweet and patient and really did a fantastic job. Here are a few of my favorites...

Our absolute favorite!

In deep thought...

"Talking to Monqie" This is right when she first started "talking"- I am so glad Monique was able to get it on camera

So Pretty! The quilt was made for me by my Great Grandmother and will be passed down to Anna Cliare

There is a link to Monique's photography web site under "Blogs I Visit". She does fantastic seasonal pictures and is starting a new company with Jenny Holloway Designs called Saving Grace Designs- Visit both of these under "Blogs I Visit"

Two Months Old

Our big girl is growing so fast! This month has really been great! We have noticed a huge improvement in her colic and she is a much happier baby (and we are much happier parents)! When we went to the doctor to get her two month shots she weighed 10 lbs and 9 oz and was almost 24 inches long. She has started giving us big smiles with a little shriek when we talk to her. It is the best feeling in the world to have your baby smile at you! She loves to "play"(that usually consists of laying on a pillow with me making faces at her), sit in her swing, and watch the mobile over her bed. We love her more that we ever could have imagined and feel really blessed to have her in our lives.

Shots- Ouch!!

Anna Claire had her two month shots on Monday of this past week. The picture above is a reinactment of the face she made (she is actually yawning in this picture, but you get the idea). It was one of the saddest moments of my life. She cried so hard that it didn't even make a sound, but shortly after we heard it loud and clear! I felt so bad, but I knew it was for her own good. The happy part is that we can now get out of the house- aah, freedom!!!

My Little Flower

Tuesday night Anna Claire got to dress up in her Halloween outfit for the Spouse Alliance Munching and Mayhem Halloween Festival. Isn't she adorable!?! She wasn't quite sure about having it on her head, and kept trying to eat the petals (notice we had to tuck it in on one side), but finally decided she would cooperate. The party started at 5:30 and we normally start her bedtime routine around 6:00 so we were a little nervous about how it would go down, but she did a really good job. All of the kids were so cute in their costumes. Jeremy and I had fun getting out of the house and even had a chance to stop by the new Kroger at the Reservoir to try out their Sushi. Yes, Kroger has sushi, and it is really good (not quite Nagoya, but good for a grocery store). We can't wait for Halloween night to dress up again!
