We got the first snow of the season in Aurora, Colorado today. Since Nova isn't even 6 months yet, this was her first time seeing snow. Check out the fun snow pictures! You can't see the flakes in all of the pictures but they were coming down good and she really loved it. She first looked out the window, then we brought her out into it with her snowsuit, and then we gave her a snowball to play with for a few minutes inside the warm house. Sorry that I'm not in any of the photos but I was the picture-taker.

Nova's been perfecting the art of blowing spit bubbles for the past couple months. Here's some fun pictures of Nova Skye blowing spit bubbles. Does your baby do this too? Share your stories and links in the comment section.

Nova got to play with a train set for the first time today. Aja and Nathan were playing and she wanted to join in, so we let her (with close supervision). See the photo gallery below to find out how much fun she had.

From her first day of birth, Nova has loved her Philips Avent Soothie pacifiers. But in the past few days, Nova has grown up enough to give it up on her own. The photo collage below shows her beautiful pacifier journey from beginning to end.
As you'll see, we have the Philips Avent Soothies in various colors, in teddy bear, and even with a giraffe attached (by WubbaNub, using a Soothie). Nova absolutely adored her pacifiers, but only that kind.
However, lately she has been teething, so we think it's a combination of that and her growing up and doing more things that made her just give them up on her own. Thanks to the makers of the Soothies for the help with keeping her calm for her first 4 months of life. Now she's apparently ready for lots more adventures!

Nova turned 3 months old yesterday (9/2/2016)! Check out the fun photo gallery below, after reading about her amazing baby milestones at three months old.
Nova is getting so big and enjoying so much more. She finally got to test out her Evenflo Exersaucer that Grandma Rowell got for her and she absolutely loves it! Don't worry, she has all the signs of being ready to use it, such as being able to control her own head and pushing with her feet if in a standing position. There are more signs, but that should give you an idea. She was so funny playing with it. She got extremely excited and said hi to the teddy bear and monkeys several times. She does that to everything with a face, be it a toy or a person.
Speaking of signs, Nova had a well-baby checkup recently and guess what?! She's developing well and has met or exceeded every single milestone for her age. She weighed 9 lbs, 3 oz, as of 8/31/2016. That's up significantly from her birth weight of 5 lbs, 7.5 oz. She's also now 2o inches long! She was a little under 17 inches at birth.
Nova is playing a ton these days and is super active during the day. She plays with her feet, plays with any toys we put near her or hand to her, plays in the Exersaucer, laughs when people do silly things, requests specific toys with a distinct sound when she sees them, and so much more. Her favorites include a monkey teething blanket, the Exersaucer, a small Pokemon figurine that Nathan gave her, family members, cardboard tubes, her Summer Infant SuperSeat, an elephant wind chime my mom has (she likes to ring the bells with her feet), and a few more.
Nova's been doing so much lately that we can hardly keep up! Stay tuned for the next post. It's even easier if you hit the subscribe button on the right sidebar, so you don't miss a thing.
