10 months old today!! or 304 days.. since apparently that's what aurora would rather go by.
Open your eyes & see the beauty of this wonderful world. ✨✨
Sunday morning coffee & playtime with this sweet little girl. 😍
A dream is a wish your heart makes
when you're fast asleep✨
My little book worm.📖🐛
aurora loves to look at books and have them read to her. she's been turning the pages for us as we read for about a week now and sometimes closing the book for us when she's too sleepy to let us finish reading. right now, she's particularly fond of these little books, silly sally, baby faces, and a couple of books that have textures for her to feel.
thanks to @chickfila for these cute #ericcarle books!
Oh my gosh! aurora is teething like crazy lately. 😣
she is definitely much more irritable than usual and gets frustrated super easily. she had a third bottom tooth pop out yesterday and her top two are just beneath the surface😬😬. we will be so relieved when these ones come through and she isn't constantly bugged by those little toofies.
This little goober is always curious 😂. aurora tackled me while i was laying on the floor trying to snap a cute picture of her.
i only get about an hour with her each day on the weekdays. aurora gets up just after 7am and we hop in the car around 8:15am. i start work in the late morning and get home later so by the time i get back, aurora is already in bed after spending the afternoon/evening with daddy (alejandro works super early in the am so gets home much earlier). it's wonderful because she gets to max out individual time with each of us and not spend so much time away from both of us but it's definitely not easy to have such limited time with my girl during the week! i maximize my time with her as much as possible by getting up early to get my workout in, get myself ready, and knock out anything else i have on my to do list. i also finish preparing her food and bottles for the day during that time. this way i can really be in the moment with her. it's tough to spend so much time away from her during the week but i absolutely cherish these moments (and look forward to the days when aurora can stay up just a little bit later).
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. whenever one door closes i hope one more opens. promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance. and when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
