Flora's 1st Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was at Gaga and Papa's house in Auburn. We arrived around 12.45pm, first family onto the scene, to play before turkey dinner.

Fall photo shoots with Nana

Nana came to visit for a week at the end of October early November... here are some of the fun times we had!
Fall photo shoot on the back patio....
...in her Halloween costume.
Flora talking to us.
 We were on the go the week Nana was in town.  The weather was beautiful and there was shopping to do, lunches to eat, and walks around Seattle to be had!
Good morning happy Flora!
 All smiles!
 Everything in the mouth!
 She's starting to sit up on her own! Yay!
Ok, she's heading toward the floor...
...just before the FACE PLANT!
Don't worry, the smiles never left!
 She's showing the camera her tongue.
This is the ultimate hint that it's time for a snooze.
I love this photo!
I love this photo even more!  Both Flora and my mom are so smiley! 
 Thanks for a fantastic week Nana!

5 Month Birthday

Happy 5 month birthday to my sweet Flora Mae
Sitting up like a big girl! (she took a nose dive into the floor shortly after this photo)

She has a thing with her tongue... super cute
 Getting so relaxed
 Very close to naptime...
 She is a thumb sucker... so cute
 so calming
 she caught me taking photos of her sucking her thumb... I love it!
 Awake from a nap and MOHAWK TIME! 
At the request of Uncle Ben ;)
 Long hair!
From birth she has rubbed and pulled out the hair on the sides of her head... 
these next two photos show off the new hair growing back.

 Flora Mae continues to surprise us with her tricks, sounds and smells. :)  Love you sweetheart! Grow on!
