You'll Be In My Heart - Phil Collins

I've always loved this song, and I remember very vividly when Michaela was only 2 days old and we first had to put her on phototherapy for her jaundice. She was fussing and hating the little eye shades that had to be on her face, and all I could think to do was hold her hand and sing the first verse and chorus of this song. Now it's her song. :) Just wanted to share it!

Playing Around

These are some pictures that I've taken in the last little while of Michaela just playing around at home. Today I found out I can edit them and do all sorts of cool things on Photo Bucket! Hope you enjoy them!

3 months old!

Well, I've decided these posts are gonna be monthly...that's about all I can commit to! And as usual, there's been plenty going on in Michaela's little world. :) She's now holding her head up all by herself for the most part, and her smiles are abundant! She's already giving us plenty of hints that she's gonna be a little talker when she gets older- you know the kind. ;) ("And then...and then...and then...") And in other fun (or lack thereof) the teething process has begun. :( Definitely not as much fun as the other milestones we've mentioned. But here's a little bit of what we've been up to this month!

Tummy time is definitely not her favorite pastime, but she is getting better at holding her head up! Here's a typical progression of tummy time:

Starting out...okay, I can do this for a little while...

A couple of minutes have passed, and my sucky is now a necessity if I'm gonna be okay with this.

And now I'm done. Get me out of here!

This month also held Michaela's first long road trip! We went to Penticton, BC for Easter. (A drive we will definitely be making over 2 days from here on out!) We stayed with Brad's Aunt Lois and visited with my sister Pyper, my half-brother Nate and his family. We also visited with Brad's Aunt Sharon, and his cousin Tracey and her family were out there the same time we were. It was a great weekend with family!

Once we got back into the home routine for a few days, we ended up making a last minute trip down to Brooks for some Wester family time. Michaela met her Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa Wester and had an opportunity for some four generation pictures. Brad's Uncle Dan also got some GREAT pictures over breakfast! I LOVE THEM!
