Can you believe it has been three months since Kira’s newborn shoot? The time seems to have flown by, but she has made huge changes in the last three months. She’s gone from being a smushy little newborn to a smiling, giggling, active little girl.
I didn’t buy many clothes for Kira before she was born since we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl. What I did buy, however, was mostly blue and green simply because I like those colors. So for the first few months of her life, I was accused of dressing Kira like a boy. Not for this photo shoot! We went all girly for this one with a pink hat and lacy shirt. With a little help from people like Lindsey (who bought her this cute hat) and a lot of help from her enthusiastic Auntie Jen (who bought the super cute lace top among many other awesome outfits) Kira’s wardrobe is slowly starting to balance out from all gender neutral to more girl appropriate.
While she usually treats us to plenty of smiles and happy faces, sometimes she is nonplussed with my photo efforts. Below is her duck face, which I totally love. It’s just a little bit pouty and sassy.
She is acing tummy time these days. It used to be a bit of a struggle, but now I get some smiles when she’s on her tummy, especially if she has a mirror to look at :)
More happy tummy time…So happy she could drool…and she does…a lot…The snow outside was just perfect for a couple of winter photos, so we put on her little fleece bear outfit. John and I call it her Tanuki suit because we both played too much Nintendo as children. Unfortunately, I think this was the last time she’ll be able to fit into the Tanuki suit. Her little legs are so long she doesn’t fit in most of her clothes anymore – time for the six month size!
There’s that duck face again…
Outside we go for our first snow photos! Notice how short those fleece pants look? They used to be long on her…sigh. Good thing we were only out there for a few minutes so she didn’t have time to get cold.And, of course, a snowy selfie.My parents got Kira a new play gym for Christmas, and she loves it. She hasn’t quite sorted out that she can use her hands to bat at the hanging toys, but she likes to kick the pillars and watch them dance. My family had a lot of fun watching her play with it on Christmas day.
Kick kick! Right now she also loves looking at herself in the mirror, giggling at the sheep wall art in her nursery, and reading the book Eight Silly Monkeys. I love watching her little face when we read to her – she looks at all the pictures and has such a good time. I expect it will only get more fun as her attention span grows.
Since she turned three months just the day after Christmas, I also included my two favorite iPhone images from the holiday. Somehow she managed to wear that Christmas onesie all day without spitting up all over it, and she loved her little elf hat.Kira has changed so much in the last three months, and I know more big changes are on the way. There is so much to look forward to. More photos soon!
