There's Been More Sightings...

daycare is saying that yesterday she walked all over the place. 20+ steps at a time...and more than once. We got her home and of course do you think she would perform? We maybe got a couple steps here and there but that was all. George shot some video...I will try to download so you can all see the big moment!

PS - maybe I'm biased but I think her favorite thing to walk to is Mommy!!! I do believe Mommy won out over food last night.

Hand, Foot and Mouth

One would think those are the latest things she can point to. Well, although that is almost a true statement it is actually the disease we have been fighting this past week. Yes, Nora has been a little under the weather. And YES, Mommy and Daddy have been put through the ringer. About 2 weeks ago she was exposed to chicken pox. So when she started running a temp this past Friday morning (really Thursday night) we thought for sure it was her turn. So we waited...and waited...and waited. And still no pox.

Daycare mentioned this thing called Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease. Surely she didn't have that...there was nothing on her hands or feet. Well, oddly enough she started drooling. Almost spitting really. So Daddy and Mommy held a flashlight to her open mouth (which is a fight I might add) and low and behold our precious little monster had sores all over her mouth. Poor little baby! After a weekend of soy yogurt (because that is all she would eat) we took her to the doc to confirm that Mommy and Daddy did indeed have the correct diagnosis.

Thankfully as I write this tonight, the bright is back in her eyes and my Little Bit is feeling like her old self. Right down to the squinty eye...your in deep trouble Daddy...look she is now doing. This look is just something she shouldn't know how to do yet, but at the same time is really pretty funny. Sorry George, she is more like me every day! I'll try to get a picture of it.

So I hope all you Moms had a great Mother's Day...even though Nora was contagious and we had to stay at home, I had one of my best to date!!!! Happy Late Mothers Day!!!!
