Conversations with Dad

Tonight Jonathan was really trying to teach Amelia to say "Dada." He might be jumping the gun just a little, but at least they're communicating in some form!

October Outfits

I love it when people go shopping and can't resist buying clothes for your baby :) jk. October lends itself to cute outfits for babies because it's Halloween month so we've had a great time dressing Amelia up in her festive clothing from Grandma Linda and a friend.

We can't wait for Halloween to dress her as a Bee! Hope everyone is having a great October!

Our Pottery Barn addition :)

Since we started planning Amelia's nursery WAAY back when, we were trying to figure out the best place to keep all of her clothes, because the closet in her room in Jonathan's. There is also a 6 drawer dresser in her room, also Jonathan's. So, short of having Jonathan move all his stuff into the closets downstairs, which is just cruel, we had to think of another way. We had been browsing online at Pottery Barn kids, just to look, never to buy because their stuff is outrageously priced. We found a cute set of cubbies that were stack able in various ways so if you were to rearrange the room you could also rearrange the look of the cubbies. We peeked at the price and for the plywood set of cubbies it was a mere $999.99. Woofta. After looking at them more closely, and then finding the dimensions listed on the website, Jonathan said, "I could make those!" Yay for Jonathan, I love it when he says stuff like that. After working long, hard hours over at Melody and Tom's house, we got to bring the cubbies home last night, and I love them!! There's lots more room for all of her stuff so we can be lots more organized. Check it out:

Here they are newly set up with nothing in them.

Here is when i started to put the boxes into place. The cube on the top that's just open is going to have a rod in it to hang all her dresses.

We did some rearranging of her room and put the cubbies on the wall that had her cradle, and moved the cradle under her quilt with her name. We will obviously have to move this again when she can grab stuff because tugging on the quilt would be no good!

Thanks Jonathan! I love them!

I guess it went from being nice weather straight to winter because it snowed here in Pueblo today!! How crazy, and annoying I might add. I'm not a fan of the winter, but for some reason this year it doesn't seem as terrible as most years. I'll just get ready to snuggle up at home with my baby and a blanket for a couple months and not go anywhere! :) We bought Amelia a new sweatsuit for winter. Check it out:

2 Months

Amelia turned 2 months old on October 4th. I can't believe that much time has already gone by! It seems like it's been so much longer, but at the same time it feels like yesterday that we brought her home. It's been so much fun watching her grow and change every day. She is smiling at us SO much and just cooing away. Today, though, was a terrible day in history (hers and ours). She had her 2 month doc appt which meant 5 shots!! AHHH. It was the saddest thing in the world! Jonathan and I both cried. A lot. We are trying to keep her doped up on Tylonol, after a bad episode this afternoon when we let her medicine wear off. :( Anyway~ after the shots we took a trip to Target to buy some random stuff for her and we bought a Bumpo, since Elsha and I never made it to their storage unit to borrow theirs. Here she is:

Now wish us luck for the night and day after shots :)
