Both of your babies are SO cute! I love 3D ultrasounds. Nora looked SO similar to her 3D ultrasound when she was born. It's pretty amazing.

I haven't been very active on here lately. To be honest, I have a hard time posting because my SIL is a stalker and I'm sure she follows everything I post on here. We don't have communication with her (although she sure tries to!) but I guess I should post anyway and not care if she sees what I write.

Anyway! Here is my adorable little fox before a 6.5 mile hike last weekend. She turns 3 months old tomorrow.

She's such a cutie. The dogs love her.

aww she's cute, I love the fox look!

The scan was amazing, I can't believe how clear they are. We showed the DVD to my partners mum, she was amazed I keep looking at the photos... Can't wait to see how similar baby looks to the pics little chunk is already weighing about 3.5lbs

Thanks! I'm loving this age- SO much easier than the newborn stage! She's interactive and silly and much different than she was 3 months (or even 1 month!) ago. We get between 7-10 hours of interrupted sleep each night on average. Can't complain about that!

We think we want to go to Alaska with her next June- she'll be 11 months then. We're going hiking at Denali and are going to wear her, and I'm hoping she'll still love being worn at that point! We want to do some long hikes and are going to work up to it with her being worn this fall/winter.

Here's her 3D ultrasound picture and then her at 2 days and 9 days. She looks just like it.

The Big Question:

I want to get Lillian a play kitchen for Christmas. Originally I was thinking I'd make one out of an old entertainment shelving unit, but LOL at thinking I had time for that.

They have GORGEOUS wooden sets that cost +$100, or plastic ones that run much cheaper. I'm not entirely sure how the plastic ones hold up...the used wood ones I've seen seem to accrue a lot of damage. I'm wondering if it'd better to buy the cheaper one thinking a) she's a child and is going to bang it up anyway and b) it's a kid's toy she'll only play with for a few years, or go with the more expensive, higher quality one that may(?) last longer, look nicer, etc.


Jessie - Nora looks like a little doll! Alaska sounds great - book your flight overnight so she'll most likely sleep during it. And even if she doesn't still enjoy being worn at that time (Lillian didn't), you can still do shorter, more family friendly hikes and things.

We got a plastic kitchen from craigslist... I paid half price for it. I would not get the cheap 'American Plastic' ones because they'll just fall apart. Mine was a Step 2. I like the wood ones much better and I think kids like them better too, but when I see what my kids have done with it... I'm glad I went for easy to clean plastic!

So it's really a question of taste... Make sure you follow Baby Cheapskate on FB or Twitter, they will tell you when they are on sale.

Growing up we had the name brand plastic kitchen set. Can't remember what brand, though. It survived myself, two toddlers, and then another little one and I think it was eventually donated. We loved it. So, if it's a sturdy well made plastic set...nothing wrong with that!

I spent about 90 hours total making Winnie a kitchen for her birthday one year, out of an old desk. It was beautiful... Then JPPSO destroyed it when they moved us. I cried, and never made another one.
Now she has a Step 2 kitchen that she got last year for her birthday from my parents. It's held up well, especially considering the cold who plays with it destroys everything else.
