Could it be teething?

I need your help and comments all you moms out there! For about the last few days Rae has been super fussy. If she is awake she is pretty much crying...or spitting up. She has always been a spit up baby, but it has gone to new extremes. Also, she has had the WORST diapers! Yesterday I got a before and after picture. We will just say she has ended up in the bathtub more than she likes! I was reading that teething age is genetic, and I know that I teethed really early. What symptoms did your kids have?? Could Rae be teething at 3 months old?!?

This years first Christmas project

Here is how our family spent Thanksgiving weekend. It took a ton of coaxing and bribing for Rae to cooperate.

I was at my parent's house the other day and we all decided that Rae bears a striking resemblence to brain from Animaniacs. What do you think? Same Saggy cheeks and bald head...I totally see it!

catch up randomness...

I finally put Rae's crib together last week. We have only had it sitting around for about 6 months and Rae is now only 12 weeks old. She has yet to sleep in it overnight because I wouldn't hear her during the night until she is already frantic and thinking she is STARVING. I did however put her down for her first nap in it on Saturday...

She also held her first toy this week...for about 10 seconds, just long enough for her to get it to her mouth and for me to snap a picture.

I have just been feeling like my baby is growing so fast lately. She has just started this really annoying habbit where she thinks she needs to eat a few ounces every 30 minutes for about 2 hours before she goes to bed. I think its pretty irritating, but Jeff was really sweet and took her screaming and all tonight to feed her. She was so sweet just looking up at him through the whole bottle. (I might be a little bit jealous. She always tries to watch TV when I feed her. Guess she is tired of my face...) Anyways, I had to snap this picture of my two favorite peeps!

At church last Sunday, Jeff and I had been talking about how we don't remember Rae ever being as tiny as the other babies at church. It dawned on me as I stared at Jeff's enormous shoes on the floor, my baby might look smaller if she was wearing Daddy's shoes. It didn't work to make her look smaller, but it was a pretty cute picture.

Rae's Special Day

We finally blessed Rae on Sunday. We had all been so sick for several days before it, I had just prayed that we would all make it through the blessing without vomiting. Turns out my prayers were answered. We all felt better Sunday morning. Rae was so good during her blessing. She didn't even make a peep, and for those of you that don't know her, that is far from normal. Jeff said that right before he started the prayer she just looked up at him and gave him the biggest smile and then tried to do situps all through the prayer (she hates to not be sitting straight up if she is awake...I think she is afraid she will miss something if she lays down and relaxes). She was just adorable in her blessing dress, but because she spits up ALL the time, she had to wear a bib over it. Hopefully when she is ready for her next white dress, we won't have to cover it with a bib!
