Well these breakthroughs sure seem to come in bursts. Over the weekend, we noticed Nora intently looking at her fingers and touching them together, then later that day she was throwing her legs up and grabbing them (at least tried to grab them).
Now she's rolling over! Last night we saw her roll from back to belly for the first time, and today over Grandma's house she was rolling back and forth, and even started scooting backwards.

So, it wasn't a tooth...Oops.

So, I feel kind of dumb, but I took Nora to the ped Thursday night for her 3 month checkup. Well, the ped saw what I saw poking through her gums, and said she sees them often - and lots of 1st time parents think it's a tooth - but it's actually some kind of a cyst. It's hard, white and jutting through her gum, but it isn't a tooth. Harmless and very common. It should go away on its own. Oh well! I thought it was REALLY early for her to be cutting teeth anyway. So, I'm kind of embarrassed that I thought it was a tooth, but I chalk it up to never having seen a baby cut a tooth before.

But she is definitely teething. The ped says she sees buds in there ready to come through in another month or so. Yay for fussy babies!

Oh - and she weighs 15 lbs 15 oz and is 26 inches long! My little chunker! 95th percentile, w00t!

Here are some photos to tide you all over!

Gearing up for the cold!

Our big girl - so sleepy!



Happy girl!

We knew it...

After a very fussy day, and a few really hard weeks, Chris and I finally saw a tooth peeking through Nora's bottom gums today! We can't believe she is already cutting a tooth! Our little girl is certainly hitting her milestones quickly!
