Three Months

Last week, Alice turned three months old.
Like a true party animal, she celebrated the milestone all week. First she spent some quality time with Curious George.

Then she and little Ellie smushed their hands near each other's faces a few times. 
 She enjoyed a family hay ride. 

She hung out with Aunt Vola and Uncle Jason at a neutral-colored-top-themed get-together.

And she did lots of floor gymnastics.

As you can see, she also discovered two new toys, conveniently located at the end of each of her legs.

Today Alice got to try out a new activity mat while we were visiting a friend, and did she ever enjoy herself.  Actually, I can't tell if she's enjoying herself or picking a fight with her own reflection in the little mirror that was dangling just above her head (on the underside of the turtle), but either way, she was excited!

Future Ambassador?

We think Alice would be a great foreign servant.  As you can see, she already has the shirt, so that part is all taken care of already.  

Furthermore, she has all the right personal characteristics for the job. 

She's focused,


stern, yet fair,

and she doesn't beat around the bush.

We're just going to have to do something about the way she dresses....

All in a Day's Work

Alice is such an industrious little girl and she always finds a way to fit countless productive activities into every day.  For one thing, she has already started exploring different professional paths.   
Although she liked it over at Georgetown Prep, she found those high school boys to be so immature

She accompanied her dad to work and impressed all of his colleagues with a nuanced understanding of various computer programming languages. 
Well... maybe she actually helped him play hooky by meeting us for an ice cream.  But I'm sure she would have done that stuff about the programming languages if she had made it to his office. 

She's been toying with a career in journalism, so has been spending full minutes every day absorbed in the latest developments on CNN.com and WSJ.com.

Don't worry, though.  It hasn't been all business all the time for this little girl:  she's been packing her day with various hobbies as well.  For example, she has proven to be a very efficient little shopper. 

Mom, you already have a black sweater just like that.  Ditch it, take the jeans, and let's get out of here so we can go home and start dinner.

She loves to squeeze in an invigorating morning power walk. In fact, she loved this particular walk so much that she positively demanded that we prolong it by pulling over for an impromptu diaper change and snuggle session.

And, to top it all off, she's even been working on her French.  

Bonjour, mes amis!

As you can see, this little girl is just go, go, go all the time. 

Whoops! Not sure who these photos are of! Someone must have a sleepy little baby that looks just like our Energizer Bunny!

Do you think she's getting enough to eat?
