Jeff is at Disneyland with Elsa while I'm working on research protocol submissions to our IRB in the office. Someone got himself an annual pass for his birthday but I don't begrudge him that one bit. He's a good nanny and deserves it.

She's such a mouth breather! She falls asleep with her pacifier in and then it falls out and her mouth stays like this. It's sweet.
This was taken just after I told her how many diapers she goes through in a day. She too was shocked and befuddled.
Babies sleep in the weirdest positions. That can't be comfortable...

Be still my heart. Zara now has baby clothes and they are so dang fashion forward, I'm dying. Again, I want these all in my size. Too pricey for baby clothes (for us at least) but good inspiration for when I start making Elsa some fashions!
Corduroy leggings!! Say no more.
The leather pockets on this jacket are so sophisticated! And if it's one thing a three month old's jacket should be, it's sophisticated.
The dresses are making me hyperventilate. I want to cancel all plans for this weekend and call in sick to work next week so I can figure out how to make all of these.
The wavy collar? I die.
Okay no. Just no. It's not right for Elsa to be that much cooler than me with her fashion. Cuter? Sure. I'll give her that. But cooler? No.

Elsa is three months old today! And is down to only 8 hours a day in her harness. Yay! One more month and it's gone for good. She celebrated with her Bigfoot booties:
And with her monkey in the swing:
Nathan called this the Siamese recharging station. Love it.
Stuff on my baby!

We pre-ordered our iPhone 4S's this morning and sold our old 3GS's on Gazelle.com this morning (they gave us $121 for each of them!!) and I. CAN'T. WAIT! I use my iPhone so much now, between work, taking pictures and video of Elsa, and entertaining myself during the hours and hours I spend nursing a baby, that I really do need something zippier and with more functionality. So thank you Steve Jobs for making Apple all that it amazingly is, and Jerod for telling us about Gazelle and saving us some monies! Now I can buy this:
I'm going to make a pattern with my name on it and then make my mom embroider it. Cool!

Party at Sue's! A ton of family and friends came through to meet the munchkin, and I'm happy to say that she was so well behaved for it! It was a long day and we flew out late that night, getting home to our boys around 11:30. It was a great weekend, but oy, babies tagging along on adventures requires a lot of thought and planning.
Pappy giving her a bottle. She made him sweaty with all her baby heat.
She looks so little in Richard's lap!
My mom's top is almost upstaging the baby here. It was really pretty. I'm jealous.
Monica the baby whisperer. We dropped Elsa off with Monica for an hour so we could pound a few beers in the backyard.
Hilary and Jack gave us that awesome wood toy rattle atom thing I'm holding. The bonds squish and flex, it's really neat. I threw away the box so it would fit in our luggage and I forgot who made it and the name of it!
And this is Jim's happy face:
And while we were up in San Jo playing with the baby, Uncle Jan was at our house taking care of the boys. We were nervous leaving the social butterflies alone for three days but we didn't have to twist Jan's arm too hard to get him to catsit. I think the boys liked him. Thanks Jan!
