Part one of "The Elora Book"

Here are the first 11 pages of the official Elora Scrapbook:

When I get them all done, I'm going to print them at the shop, and bind them into a book. Oh, and I'll be posting the rest as a "part 2". :)

I finally got Elora's birth announcements finished! Now, all I need to do is print them, and send them...

more fun with photos

I got some more of my photos from mom's visit uploaded... This one is from dinner at the Waldheim after going to the Porche Museum. I was wearing really dangly earrings, and Brandon kept trying to put them inside my ear, which tickled, and, well, you can see what happened. He'd been doing it all day, but instead of getting annoying, it just got funnier.

I've been trying to get a picture of this face for weeks... It's so precious!! But of course she only does it for a second at a time, and I can't just sit and let her cry while I spend forever taking pictures, so it took a while for me to finally capture it. She's so cute when she cries!

Today was her 2 month check up. That wasn't so bad. She's doing great, according to her doctor. She's gaining weight nicely--can you believe she's just over 11 lbs now? I knew she was getting heavier, but sheesh!! She's going to need to go to a new diaper size again soon. (Kara, I might have some more diapers to give you!) She's also grown a full inch in height, from 21" to 22", all in only a month and a half. So the check up was fine--it was the immunizations that were awful. She cried, I cried... But it's all over, and once we get through tonight (she's still kind of fussy, I think because the leg that got the tetanus shot is sore) it will all be just a bad memory. Until her 4 month check up, anyway.

Mom's Visit

Well, Mom and Wade are off exploring Rome now (they got to go to Mass, said by the Pope, at St. Peter's yesterday) and I'm trying to get used to having a quiet house again. I so was not ready for them to leave! But all good things must come to an end, and we really did have a fantastic time while they were here. I have the pictures to prove it! I'm still trying to get them all uploaded. (Feel free to have a look-see, they're all in May sub-albums.) Anyway, as much as I miss them, it does feel good to just...relax.
