Already 9 Months

I cannot believe our Nora has been with us for 3/4's of a year already. Time flies. She sure has changed our lives...and we wouldn't have it any other way. We are beginning to try some finger foods. So far we have had bananas, green beans, and a baby biscuit (the COOKIE). We're having fun with it and I think she is enjoying it too. It is just hard to tell sometimes since the double ear infection, new teeth, and general discomfort seems to be winning over eating these past few days.

She is also starting to creep a little bit. She has been a star at moving in circles and backwards. Yes, I said circles...must be her daddy in her...hee hee. BUT we have finally starting moving forward. Nothing like a crawl, but she pulls herself along with her arms. She is going to have quite a set of biceps on her at this rate!

By the way, Little Bit's stats came in at 19lbs, 10oz and 28 1/2 inches (the 50-75 percentiles). Her size is very would think she was bigger when you check out her cheeks and thighs!

Christmas - Just a Few More

More Christmas - The Pictures Say It All

Christmas Fun

The big day finally arrived. I hated being away from "home"...I think this was only the second or third Christmas I've spent away from my family. I wish we could have been with everyone in Croghan, but we will be soon enough. Enough of that...being with Nora and George made everything just perfect...just a new kind of special Christmas. George and I dined on steak, crab legs and lobster (are you jealous yet?) for our Christmas Eve treat and Nora had her first taste of real banana's as finger food (again...jealous?). We both loved the can one not love the eating?

And then there was the presents. Nora did great! The perfect mix of actually enjoying the present as well as the boxes they came in! We have a new face we make quite often. It is very misleading since she pulls this one out when she is excited, bored, happy and ticked off. Whatever the reason it tickles George and I pink to see it.

We finally made time for Santa. Next year we definitely WON'T wait until 2 days before Christmas to make the annual trip. After standing in line for almost 2 hours, we got our minute and a half with the big man himself. Nora wasn't so amused with the whole process. No tears...believe it or not. Although if you look close it looks like there was...she has been feeling a bit sicky again...her cold is settling in her eye perhaps...I have no friggin' idea. What I do know is that I didn't pick out an outfit fitting for seeing Santa. I think he is going to bring my darling daughter some trucks for Christmas. Oh well, I guess we can say that she is the cutest little boy to visit Santa this year. It is still a pretty cute picture though.

My Favorite least one of them!

The Real Christmas Card

We had the most difficult time narrowing the pictures down. George had his favorites, I had mine...phew...what a decision. Not to brag, but the all the pictures turned out great. I could thank my Christmas present...a new camera...but I really think it was the subject! She was such a trooper humoring me and my picture obsession!!!
Anyway, these two pictures were the two we decided to include on this years Christmas card. Of course since we sent pictures to a ton of folks (thanks to my really BIG family), some got picture one and some got picture two. But now you can see both!
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Little Miss Claus

Ho Ho Ho...I had a few minutes this morning so threw on her Santa hat and snapped some pictures. She wasn't nearly as amused as I was, but I got a couple good pics regardless. I cannot wait to get some of her in just her diaper and Santa hat...good blackmail stuff for the future!!!

Christmas Pictures

We attempted to get some Christmas pictures this weekend. We got some really great shots, but from the looks of it Miss N got bored very quickly.
But sorry all, you'll have to wait until you get your Christmas cards to see the final product!
