Duets

Aurora is progressing quickly from smiling and cooing to singing. I'm thinking about entering her in "America Has Talent" and if I can get her to nail down that accent maybe we will go to Britain as well.

Seriously, she talks a lot more when I sing her favorite songs. This one is "Once a Upon A Dream" pretty much her theme song. For many reasons some obvious and some not but I know that we knew each other before this life.

Since Aurora means "dawn" or "light" I sing all the songs I know about sunshine such as "You Are My Sunshine" & "My Girl" because I have sunshine on a cloudy day and "Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam." Can you think of any other sunny songs?

Parade of the Outfits: Part 1


Aurora is more than just a doll to dress up but...

she is such a doll to dress up! :)

Momma A gave Aurora this onesie that says "I'm Going To Be Famous"
Her "little black dress."

Pretty in Pink.
It really is her color.

Although I am quite partial to blue, too.

These socks turned into knee socks, thought it was pretty funny.


Every fashionista has to have accessories. Aurora's cousin Suzy made all of the girls in the family matching bracelets. We LOVE them!

This is only Part 1 because I'm sure in another month or so I will want to post another fashion show.

Cousins

Tyler is one of Aurora's cousins and fans. He is 7 1/2 years old and is 5 ft. tall and is often described as "a bull in a china shop." He really is a tornado of energy but anytime he saw Aurora he would immediately slow down and be very calm & peaceful. He then would come over and stroke her hair.

It was quite extraordinary, funny and sweet to see a tornado stop mid-destruction and be as calm as a sunny day at dawn.

Tyler was always asking to hold her and feed her. He was truly very good with her!



Aurora is related to a lot of tornadoes. This one is named Brendan. He too would stop mid-destruction to reprimand all the room with a "SHHH!" and point to Aurora or his brother Colin and then stroke Aurora's hair.

(Obviously I'm not the only one obsessed with my daughter's hair!)
He would often throw in a loving head bonk for good measure.



This is Aurora's younger cousin (by about a month) Colin. You can tell Aurora is a 1st child because she obviously doesn't like to share her bouncer while Colin is the 5th child and doesn't seem to even notice that there is someone else in the bouncer with him, giving off the attitude of "isn't it always like this?"



I really find this so adorable...so here is some video that Jared captured.

We love our cousins!
