Eating Crow

I have had to eat a lot of crow in the past few years, but it seems like a daily event now that I have Nora. I don't even know if I know who that old Kristi was. Oh sure...she is still there, but her new role as mom has taken over everything. I was never going to be one of those moms who could only talk about their kid especially to those folks who didn't have kids. After all when I was kid-less it was cute for a minute or two then I could no longer relate...nor frankly did I really want to. Well, now it doesn't matter. Anyone and everyone is fair game when I gush about Nora. All they have to do just ask how she is and I can go on and on and on! I kind of feel sorry for the folks who are close to me all the time...but I am lucky enough to have great friends that humor me!!! And daycare...UGH! It is the now dreaded word. George and I are calling it school since it seems less horrible that way. I was always the person who said if I had kids I would definitely still have to work. I couldn't imagine staying home with a kid all day long every day. Oops...more crow! I still don't know if I could become a full time mom forever, but geez this is harder than I ever dreamed it would be. I hate that someone else is seeing my little bit more than I do each day. IT SUCKS! I know I am just going through the transition and that it will get better (it has to...there is no choice) but I dread the morning drop off. I thought the first day would be the worst, but for me it has gotten harder and harder as the week has gone by. I cannot wait for the weekend! Until then, I will just sit here in my pink shirt and munch down on more of this little thing known as crow.

Nap Time

Nora has been having a very sleepy day today. I got to take advantage of some quality cuddle time before Daddy got home so I decided I would share her once he got home. Since Nora is getting a little bigger, times like these are precious! And she still has the knack of being able to put us to sleep when she is snuggling with us!!!

Mommy & Nora

My little pumpkin is the light of my life!

Just Sittin' Around

I'm learning new tricks everyday. I have been a good girl and still practicing my tummy time, but sometimes Mommy gives me a break and lets me sit up like a big girl.

I sure do like the view from here!!!

Twist and Shout

Here is what I found the other morning when I went in to get Ms. Nora from bed. I guess she can kick herself to all sorts of positions.
What's next?!?!?!

When I Grow Up

I want to be a chef just like Daddy.
I tried on his hat and it fit like a glove (with a little adjusting from Dad of course).

Hello My Friend...

what's your name? My name is Nora. How long have you been there? Are you planning on sticking around because I like you and I think you will be a pretty "handy" friend in the future?!?!

Bitter Sweet

Two months have already gone by and only a month left until I go back to work. I have no idea how I feel about that. I cannot imagine a day without my sidekick, but I am also ready to re-enter the adult world. All my conversations revolve around poopy diapers and nap times. It will be nice to talk to people about something other than my baby again. I have a work banquet to go to in two weeks. A Friday night out...exciting right?!?! I already have a dress and everything...I have been looking forward to this for 10 years. Of course now I am already dreading leaving Little Bit for an evening. After all no one can do things like mommy...right?!?! I know I have to start somewhere. But...

I never ever would have believed I would be like this.
