We had a good time at the Timberwolves game last night. We even got home before the snow started to come down. Today it is coming down without an end in sight! It was Crunch's Birthday (the mascot) so mascots from lots of other teams came and they did lots of funny things during timeouts. During halftime they played musical chairs roller-derby style. Lots of fun. The noise didn't seem to bother Autumn much, that was good. She slept through the 3rd quarter but otherwise had fun looking around at the faces and lights and other moving things

We went to a Valentine's Day dinner at our church and took Autumn with us. The dinner was lots of fun, with good friends to chat with and an entertaining game show to keep us laughing. So this is our first official family photo!
Here is Autumn after a hard day of playing and learning.
Here we are playing with her rattle, she has been tasting it and offered me a chance to try it out.
A friend gave Autumn a large stuffed elephant. It is so soft, it reminds me of the Saggy Baggy Elephant (someone has to have read that story!) She really likes to talk to her elephant!

Well, it's official. Kurt has finished his CD! He has finished the artwork for the case inserts. He has put them all together. YAY!
Here you see Nero supervising the assembly of the cases. He is a great supervisor, and always makes sure that nothing runs away. We are producing these in batches. The first one is mostly sold out and the second one will be started shortly. It is so exciting to hear his music with all the other instruments and voices! Autumn likes to listen to Daddy's voice, she squeals and kicks her feet and waves her hands around when his CD is playing.

Autumn is rolling over, holding herself up on her tummy, and grabbing toys! Yay. How fun it is to watch her grow and learn and explore. She enjoys reading with Daddy and Mommy and smiles when we make sounds to go with the pictures. The cats are really starting to notice her now that she is moving more. She kicks and squeals and just has a ball.

We are enjoying our roles as new parents (middle of the night feedings and all). It is pretty easy when the baby is as good as Autumn is. She is such a happy baby and very content. She really only cries when she's hungry, wet, or her tummy hurts. Otherwise she is really starting to explore her environment. What fun to watch her notice new things and learn how her world works. She is really fascinated by the Curious George decals on her walls, and the pooh mobile on her swing. She talks to them and laughs at them. And then they apparently say mean things because she cries at them. :)
She has a new trick/talent. She can pull her own hair. She managed to get her fists around hanks of her hair and then pulled which hurt. This, in turn, caused her to cry hard, make tighter fists, and try to flail her arms, which pulled her hair, which hurt...... It took a while to get her fists out of her hair! We were both exhausted after that ordeal. There is a reason babies are born bald (well, most of them).
Curious Geroge gets lots of smiles.
I like to sit in Daddy's spot on the bed.
