Baby's First Halloween

Khloe had a pretty uneventful Happy Halloween at Grandma-ma's. Cousin Kenley, Aunt Amy, Uncle KC and Great Granny Rose came to see us! Khloe decided to wait until we got home and for daddy to leave for work to have a melt-down. It only lasted about 30-45 minutes. Either way, Khloe was super-adorable in her bumble bee costume! Too bad it was too hot to wear it for more than just a few minutes :-(

Khloe rolls over

Khloe is sorta holding her head up on her own - for like 5 seconds. Her doctor was really impressed by her strength at her last appointment!

15 in 15

So my new school has an annual Art Survivor event called 15 in 15. It entails completing a drawing a day for 15 school days. Last week was week 1, and the theme was "things that start with 'a'." I did an apple still life, an apron, an angel, amethyst jewelry, and an asymmetrical shirt. My apple still life was the first drawing I turned it. I only spent about 15 minutes on it b/c that's all I had. As I was going to put it up, I see the quality of the other art teachers. It makes my apple still life very inadequate. I went back to room and added some color to make it better. I slowly turned in better and better drawings as the week went along. It's been so long since I've drawn anything b/c I spent most of the summer sewing and painting.

Week two's theme is "things that start with 'r'." I've done a ring, ruffled dress and ruffled top. I really like drapery if you couldn't tell. Even though this commitment is super-hard, I'm really enjoying getting back to my art roots of drawing all the time. I like the fact that this event teaches the kids that if you want to be good and get better at drawing, you HAVE to constantly practice! Here are some of my "r" drawings!

Khloe is 2 months!

Can't believe our baby girl was 2 months old Monday!

She's finally smiling :-) I love it!! She's cooing like crazy and loves her gym. She had her 2 month shots Tuesday. We found out that she weighs 11 lbs 12 oz and is 22 in. She's in the 75th percentile for weight, 30th for height (she's a shorty apparently :-) and 90th!! for head circumference. We always knew she was smart! The doctor was very impressed by the length of time and distance from the ground that she could hold her head up. She's very strong!

I had to do a 2 month photo shoot with her :-) Enjoy!!
