Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My

Okay, maybe we didn't see all of those things, but we sure did see lots of fun animals on Nora's first trip to the zoo! Mommy LOVES zoos. They just give folks like me a chance to see animals I wouldn't ever get to see any other way. And trust me I love the animals!!! This trip was so exciting for so many reasons...1) George and I always talked about going to a zoo but never have until today, 2) it was Nora's first ever visit and 3) they were feeding the elephants while we were there...I love the elephants! Today was a GREAT day!!!!

Flamingos and Bongos

New Friends

Once in awhile you are lucky enough to come across some really great people. That would be my co-worker and his wife. They are celebrating the birth of their first baby! I am so excited to have someone to talk baby firsts with. They are just a little bit shy of being about one year behind us. I look forward to the stories they will share of their baby's firsts which will let me reminisce about my own!

Please welcome Ms. Emmeline Rose. She was born April 21. She is absolutely perfect and one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen. Her Daddy has promised me a blog (I finally got the is Bloggin' Scoggin). In the meantime, I hope they are okay with me sharing their perfect little girl with my friends. (PS. I got to hold her today...too darn didn't make me want just made me miss #1's early months).

Through Nora's Eyes

Literally...check out the reflection in her eyes...I guess she typically sees Mommy with a camera to her face and Daddy trying to get her to laugh!

The Little Girl

Daycare has funky hair day on occasion where all the girls get their hair done. Here is what I found. Where did my baby go and who is this little girl in her place???

Catching Up

It's been a busy couple of weeks. We spent last weekend catching up on errands so this weekend we are catching up at home...hopefully we will get time to play a little bit also. Anyway, here are a couple pics from the past couple of weeks.
Is this really my Mommom? Should I be worried?

Just me and my car.

Me and My Shadow

(yes that is mommy in the shadow...she was trying to be creative!)

Oh the Things We Learn

Each new day provides for a new adventure. Typically involving some new sound or action. It really is amazing! The past couple of weeks, Nora has learned to find her belly button (and anyone else that will let her pull up their shirt), she has figured out that shaking her head "yes" is as fun as shaking it "no" (which delighted Mommy and Daddy), she has started temper tantrums when she doesn't get her own way (the kind where you take the kid out of the store because that is really the best option for everyone around...Mommy and Daddy AREN'T delighted with this), but best of all...her newest trick is to shove her finger down her throat until she vomits. Fun times!

Fun in the Park Again

Aunt Heather and Derek went with us to the park while they were here. Aunt Heather told me secrets on how to deal with my Mommy. I was listening AND asking questions!!! Thanks Aunt Heather.

And I have to say, I've had fun at the park before, but nothing measures up to the fun I had with my Derek! I love him to pieces.
He made me laugh so hard especially when he was sneaking up the slide to "scare" me. He is so funny! He was also at my birthday party but he's not in any of the pictures because he is the one who TOOK all the great shots from my party! Maybe a he will be a photographer when he grows up because he was so good at it!

Here I am with my some of my NY family that came to help me celebrate my first birthday. I sure did miss everyone else, but I will take what I can get. Boy, I am one loved little girl!!!

Thanks for making my 1st birthday so special!!!!
