Hold Me Closer, Tiny Dancer

Our little peanut turned three months old yesterday, and she’s just as feisty (she kicks like she has a black belt in karate!) and chatty as ever.


Her cute baby sounds have gotten more complex, too, and now, in addition to the staccato cooing and gurgling noises, she strings together longer baby “sentences” that sound like “wah-wah-wah-wah” and “maw-maw-maw-maw.”

Right now Connor Claire likes…

  • Working out at the “baby gym,” also known as the Fisher Price Rainforest Melodies & Lights Deluxe Gym. She can easily spend hours in it staring up at the flashing lights, reaching for the hanging toys (her favorite is the orange monkey) and listening to the rainforest setting’s chirping birds and croaking frogs.
  • Gnawing on her hands — particularly her left fist! She hasn’t quite figured out how to suck on her thumb yet, though… But she’s committed to working on it.
  • Going for afternoon walks. I’ll either pop her into her baby carrier or just hold her and walk around our neighborhood circle a few times. She loves looking up at the trees and the sky and listening to the wind and the rustling leaves.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Happy three months to Connor and you!! I don’t know how it’s possible but she grows cuter by the day. Glad you’re able to go out for walks with her now. Thanks for sharing this joy with us.

  19. Sandy P says:

    Thank you so much for sharing our nieces picture!! Loving her outfit and shoes!!

    Hi Karen,
    That whole outfit you picked out for Connor is absolutely adorable especially the cat ballet shoes! I say, aren’t you happy you got a girl? Girls are so much funner to dress up for (in my opinion). As far as wanting to take a trip, if you want to take it easy, I’d say take it on the road. I know you have a lot of options in the Bay Area, a day trip would be nice maybe at the beach.

    Awwww too cute!! She’s a doll!

  22. Jane says:

    Happy 3 months to Connor Claire! That was the age that life started to get somewhat normal. He started sleeping through the night (at least until 4 AM). BTW, Tiny Dancer is my favorite Elton John song.

  23. Yelena says:

    oh my! so much cuteness in these pictures…I can’t decide between the shoes, the outfit or the hair piece…all equally cute! Happy 3 months to Connor Claire! and Happy 3 months of being an awesome mom, Karen!

  24. Pamela Haddad says:

    Conor is adorable! I love her tutu and the shoes!! Such a cutie-pie! She looks like a happy baby, too! Have fun mom!

  25. Kim says:

    Aw! Happy three months, beautiful girl! I’m super impressed with the maw-maw. My boys and friends’ kids all started with da-da. 🙂

  26. Renee says:

    Happy 3 months! What a beautiful little tiny dancer! I love the outfit! Not as cute as her adorable smile though!
