A Nice Blogging Surprise

I uncovered a mysterious untitled drafted in my posts column today to find this one lone picture as sweet as can be.  I must have stated a "Nora comes home" post and forgot about it.  I have been real bad about keeping the blog updated, so much has been going on!  It's going to be an uphill battle to get caught up but that is a battle I am going to try to start fighting. 
I can't believe that little muffin, small as can be, is sitting upright (with some help here and there) on my lap right now.  Nora is growing healthy and happy everyday and I am so grateful for that.

Nora Goes to Church

Nora and I went to church yesterday for the first time since she made her way into the world.  I bought her the pink dress for the sale price of $7.50 at Target just for the occasion.  Shockingly, she didn't have a church dress in the right size.  Not that she needed a dress to go to church but it made the endeavor more fun for me (honestly, there is a fine chance we would have taken another week off of church if I hadn't of found the pink beauty on the clearance rack the day before).

She was a very good girl.  However, I was near sweating bullets the whole time worried that the little pink princess in my arms was going to rip one.  She can cut the cheese like a full sized man.  There is no way one church going sole in the whole congregation would believe for a half second that it was her and not me if she did stinker.  She spared me this time.... I am totally positive that she will do it sometime, it's just part of my fate now.

Babes was totally smiling at Auntie Kamie.  I'm 95% sure it was a "real smile" and the 1st I have noticed and it wasn't at me!!!

Cousin Ellie loves to hold the baby and it just so happens she is responsible enough to be super helpful too.  She fed Nora after church for me.

This picture is part of Nora's "Veteran's Day photo shoot" orchestrated by G-ma Polly.  The shoot wasn't a smashing success but we got a few cute ones.  So, happy Veteran's Day and a special thanks to all the vets out there. 

P.S.  Nora is 4 weeks old today, I can't hardly believe it.

Nora's Snow Day

"I can't put my arms down", Nora.

We got a decent little snow storm today and I couldn't stop myself from busting out Nora's snow suit.  She wasn't so much a fan of the suit and was out of it in less than five minutes.

Daddy is still not home and he enjoyed a high of 67 and sunny conditions today.  That's really not even a funny joke, I'm positive Dave enjoyed very little today and would do just about anything to be here with us.  I don't doubt that he would even walk across the country to be with us but waiting for a flight is faster.  We sure do hope to see him soon.

My Little Honey Bunny, Extra Honey

Nora got these pictures taken when she was 2 weeks and 2 days old.  She was very good for her photo shoot right up until the end.  Taking her picture was a lot of fun and I love how they turned out.  She has been a good babe.  She eats well and is putting on weight like a champ.  She does have her days and nights mixed up but thanks to The Office (the TV show) its ok with me that we are wide awake till 2:30 AM.  Also, much thanks to my mommy for taking Nora for a few hours while I sleep!   

Her daddy is in North Carolina for Army business for as long as 3 weeks but we are both hoping he will come home sooner than that.  I'm absolutely positive he is missing Nora more than words can even describe.  We are sure missing him and all of his help.  Come home now Daddy!!!

Where's the Babe?

I watched my due date fly by two days ago and no baby yet.  She is too cozy right where she is at.  Everything is still going alright we are just playing the waiting game.  I do, however, have a nasty cold.  I have gone 10 whole months without getting a sickness of any kind and now a day after my due date I get hit with a really bad sore throat.  I guess for this reason it may be a good thing babe isn't here yet.  Hopefully I can recover quickly.  I am really excited to meet my baby girl!

Welcome, October!

The witches are out and in full force.  I couldn't be more excited for October to begin!  I love this time of year but this October should be extra great for me.  Welcome, baby girl!  In some ways it's been a long time coming and in others I can't believe my "due month" is already here.
