Sunday was Autumn's Christening. It all went well, she was a perfect angel during the entire thing. Jason, her godfather, Kurt and I were all teary. She was sleeping and then Pastor Duane took her and she opened her eyes and started flirting with him! She loves to have her hair washed so the water part was a piece of cake for her. She wore a dress that my Aunt Jane made. All the girls of the next generation have been baptised in this dress. A new tradition, since the old dress is getting too old to use without fear of it falling apart. All of her grandparents were there and a few more family besides as well as some friends of ours. All in all it was a great day, and one that has long been awaited! Here are some pictures.

Well, Kurt and I are both back at work now. This week my mom has been up and staying with Autumn, next week she starts daycare. We've been busy, visiting with friends and just plain trying to figure out a routine. Ha ha ha! We are told that about the time you get a routine down it changes. She's really growing! And is starting to do more than eat and sleep. How fun to watch a little tiny human grow and learn!

We can't believe that it has been a month already since we brought Autumn home! We are having so much fun with her (yes even considering the getting up in the middle of the night and the fussy times). She is moving right along development wise, her eyes are focusing more now and she is really enjoying looking at faces and at the Curious George stickers and pictures we have hanging up. She is also looking for Daddy and Mommy when she hears their voices and is starting to track people and objects. Can't wait to see what she does next. She went in for her monthly check up and was pronounced healthy and perfect. Well, we knew that already! The cats are also more accustomed to her, they sniff at her a lot and curl up near her when she is napping. They especially love all her soft and fluffy blankets. :) There are some other pictures I wanted to post but apparently they are on the computer at home and not on my jump drive here at school. Wonder where I did put them then.............hmmm
