3 Months and scrappy projects...

Big Boy was 3 months old on Friday! I can't believe it already...So things about Kieran at 3 months:

  • He is definitely getting stronger...he loves to push his little feet against things or kick the mat on his play mat. When we stand him up, he gets the biggest grin and is so proud of himself:)
  • He is teething...lots of drool, I need to get some bibs because his chest is starting to get a little rash. He also wants to chomp on his hands or my knuckle a lot.
  • He is starting to get a teeny more fussy...he is not so patient now, lol. He also wants me to sit in the backseat next to him most of the time...which does not work out so well when Shaun isn't with me:)
  • He is ticklish...esp. he little feet. One day I was pretending to nibble his feet and he was smiling so much and now he holds his feet up in the air to me to do it, lol!
  • He is still in 0-3 month clothes, although can wear a few of his 3-6 month things.
  • Still a great little eater:)
  • He has started to sleep long stretches, like 6-8 hours before he wakes up to eat, but he usually goes right back to sleep after his snack:) He is a cat napper in the day...not really any long stretches of sleep. That is just how Aislynn was.

Here are the 3 month pictures:

I LOVE the above one, probably my new favorite picture;)

He is so long! And a skinny boy. But his cheeks are a little chubsy, just like Aislynn's were:)

Okay, he is not in focus in this picture, but it is still cute, love those blue eyes!

I have snuck in scrappy time here and there, and here are a few things I have gotten done the past couple weeks:

**Taking one of these off..check it out in the March 2010 issue of Scrapbook Trends***

I scraplifted this page from Cathy Blackstone's Be Yourself layout from the Feb/March SB Etc. issue.

I scraplifted this layout from Heather Bowser's e&e layout in the Feb/March SB Etc. issue.
I scraplifted this layout from Becky Novacek's So You layout from the Aug/Sept SB Etc. issue. Since I haven't really been in a groove for awhile, scraplifting helps jump start my creativity, and helped ease me back into being creative. I think being pregnant sucked all the creative juices out of me:)
This was that inspiration journal I was talking about a few posts back, finally snapped a picture.
Aislynn started ballet this past week, and she LOVES it! I am going to try to sneak in the room this week and get some pictures of her in her leotard. She is a cute little dancer. Other excitement for the week...Friday, a bank robber from Houston ended up in our area. Here is the original article about him: http://www.southbeltleader.com/Leader7-30-09.pdf . He was got pulled over because the vehicle he was driving matched the description of the vehicle he used to get away from Houston. He shot at the cop and then there was a high speed chase which ended with him crashing his car into woods and escaping into the woods on foot. These woods border a neighborhood (we actually house hunted back there) and there are 2 schools, which were locked down. The woods also border a bay. They lost him and didn't find him until today, when residents of the neighborhood saw him and called the police. The story ended today with the police cornering him and he turned his gun on himself, here is a link to that story: http://www.panhandleparade.com/index.php/mbb/article/pitikas_corned_by_authorities_turns_gun_on_himself/mbb7718577/. It is so crazy because nothing like this ever happens here, and this all happened about 8 miles away from our neighborhood. It was kinda nerve racking. When we lived in Henderson, I wouldn't have been shocked if something like this happened, but here-definitely.
I am starting to feel like I am sick too...head hurts and I have a runny nose and sore throat, ugh. Hope it goes away soon. Getting ready for the September Kit Reveal for Kraft Girl Kits the next couple days, so we'll have a busy beginning of the week. Aislynn's birthday party is next weekend and my Dad will be coming in to town for that and to meet the little guy:) Looking forward to that. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I absolutely adore the scrapbook page with the pic of Aislynn & Kieran on it, such a great shot. Hopefully one of these days I can come with you to A's dance class, I'd love to see her. Can't wait for her birthday party too!
