four months.

24 Nov
yep, this girl turned four months yesterday…
I was just saying how I wish she was still little like a newborn.
but she’s getting to this age where she’s doing more stuff. and it’s so much fun to see her roll over,
laugh more, and try to sit up on her own like a big girl.
She’s been super grouchy today, so I’m surprised she let me take these photos.
She’s also been teething like crazy. Poor girl, I wish I could do it for her so she wouldn’t feel the pain.
Just glad I don’t remember teething, cause it seems terrible.
this girl is such a peach.

three months.

Yesterday (the 23rd), Lux turned three months. Okay, can my baby stop getting so big now?!
We just got back from visiting my brother and his family in Vegas yesterday, too. Lux is a pretty good traveler, I must say! I think she had a good time visiting her cousins, especially, baby Benjamin. Even though he tried to poke her eyes out! 
I have photos from Vegas, but my darling three month old is rather grumpy. So until next time…
Oh yeah… and she’s discovered her toes. SOOOO cute. 

two months.

my little girl is two months old today. I can’t believe she’s already two months… well,
I guess I can believe it. I love her more and more every day. Thank you, baby, for
bringing me more joy in my life than anything else ever could. 
Let’s see, two months and:
  • she smiles a whole lot… especially in the mornings when she just wakes up. I tried SO hard to get her to smile in these photos, she was too tired. She passed out as soon as I was done taking pictures of her. 
  • she is a pretty solid sleeper when it comes to night time. it takes a couple of hours to get her to go down, but once she does she’s out for like 4-5 hours, then up for like 30 mins while we change and feed her, and back down again for sometimes 6 hours. She’s like my little teenager.
  • she talks a whole bunch. I mean, it’s not real talking… but this girl sure does have something to say.
I got some great photos of her sneezing… like before, durning, and after a sneeze. I may put it together in one photo and share sometime. It is pretty cute/funny. 

One Month Old

24 Aug

As of yesterday, August 23rd, my baby girl is one month old. I can’t believe it’s already been a month! I have decided to take on a little project; every month for a year, I will be taking pictures of Lux so I can look back and see how much she grew in her first year of life.

Special thank you to my best friend, Megan, for sending me this and inspiring me to do this. Also, another special thank you to my parents for letting me borrow their Canon Powershot SX20 IS for this project. Russell and I don’t have a fancy camera, yet. So I’m forced to borrow theirs for a few hours every month until we can find it in our budget to buy ourselves something nice!

Now, let’s see what’s gone down so far this month:
Doctor visits, a fussy little girl, late night joy rides in the truck to put that fussy little girl to sleep,  mommy losing her phone, family and friends coming to visit, and a whole lot more!
