And she looks so innocent..

Yup she was talking away being so cute, such a good girl, letting me get so much done....then it got quiet, and there was an suspicious smell..............
Some day there will be scratch and sniff computers.....It was sooo soooooo bad. Ugh ick gag yuck! Up the front and out one leg, chunks people! Gahhh, I thought we had an agreement that she save these for Daddy! It was over the diaper in the front so there was no way to get it off with out touching the gunck, gech....blech....why, why baby!? But what are you going to do? So I laughed as I cleaned and guess what? She laughed back! So we laughed some more while I tried to get the onesie off without smearing her.
On a less gross note, I mailed in my application to be a milk donor today! I have about 170 oz saved so far and you have to have at least 100oz for them to send the stuff to mail it in. The milk bank is in CA, so they will send you coolers and postage. I'm really excited to do this knowing that it will help so many preemie babies :) I'm hoping to donate at least twice since it takes a while to get this much saved.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at the Fish's house in Tualatin (Galen's parents). Lots of family and great food! It's always fun to get the babies together, compare notes on growth and milestones with Naomi and Mason, and see Kaylee almost walking!

Uncle Galen, Cousin Isabelle, and Grandpa Terry
Nana Laurie, Cousin Kaylee, and Grandma Melinda
Supercute! Norah with the bow from our Harry and Davids boxes.
Check out those baby thigh rolls!
First shoulder ride on Daddy :)
Oh and everybody has branches of rosemary hanging in their house right?

We have a 3 months old?

It's hard to believe Norah is three months old already. Where's my tiny baby? Yesterday I packed away the rest of her newborn clothes and some of the smaller 0-3 month things as well.
She is super cute and getting chubby legs and squishy cheeks. She makes all kinds of cute noises including laughing! Twice we've been able to get adorable laughs out of her, hopefully we'll get them more often. She loves to chew and suck on her hands and fingers, and toes if we help her out. Generally she's a happy girl, of course she has her moments with screaming and crying that test our patience, but overall she is a doll!

Nursing covers

A gal in my playgroup posted this link for a company selling nursing cover ups.
Here's what she said:

Udder Covers is a company that specializes in nursing covers. They have a great ongoing promotion where you can buy a nursing cover for FREE and just pay $8.95 shipping.Use the code: Thanks to receive the discount

For those of us not so handy in sewing our own these are really cute! I went through the checkout process to see if the code works and it does, also works to discount the gift sets. I know there are a few other new mommys that read my blog so I just wanted to pass this along :)

She Laughed!

Not just a giggle, full on belly laughing! It was THE BEST!
We were lying on the bed and she was sitting on George's tummy leaning on his legs. George was shaking a little bumble bee wrist rattle around and making buzzing sounds and she just started cracking up! First time she has laughed, and we were both there to witness it!

Kaylee laughing, too funny!

A few more pics

Grandpa holding Norah on Halloween, put her right to sleep, until he passed her off so he could eat dinner too.

Last night we tried the bumbo seat for the first time. She did pretty good! We only let her go a couple minutes but it looks like we'll be able to have tummy time and bumbo time now!

She has discovered her hands, and they are yummy!
Grandma reading to Kaylee today, she's hanging out with us all day so Mom and Dad can have a little break
Halloween evening, she was so tired but wouldn't sleep. She finally crashed and slept on me like this for over an hour
