Baby Pics

Some of the new kiddo's first pics.

Here she/he is with fist to mouth and tongue sticking out!

Just a few more (very short) months and our family of three will be a family of four!!!

and so it GROWS

Our little family that is. Yes, we will be welcoming a brother or sister for Nora the end of May. Everyone is pretty excited and Nora is already predicting which we will have. Typically she is saying it's a girl in Mommy's belly, but occasionally it changes. The rest of us seem to have already starting "him"ing it. Time will tell...

All else is going well and right on track. More details and pics to follow...

More Faces of Nora

We were just playing around but I love how she can easily switch from one degree to another!

2010 Pumpkin Patch

Our annual trip to the Pumpkin Pie Patch...as least that is what Nora calls it...guess calling her that for years has rubbed off! Ha! PS - Notice the new shorter haircut. She said she wanted it cut like Mommy's so we bit the bullet. It is super cute but I miss the long locks!!!

Future Hubby Potential

And I would be cool with that. After all, I already adore the potential "mother-in-law."

Giants of the Savanna

The Dallas Zoo opens a new exhibit next weekend. The Giants of the Savanna. Dallas Zoo members (i.e. The Marquez family) got to have a sneak peek this weekend. I cannot speak for everyone, but my review...holy shit...that was awesome!!! The exhibit was built on acres and eventually the elephants, giraffes, and gazelles will all be roaming together. The zoo finally has itself some lions...2 one year old males...adorable. For some reason I guess they won't be joining the gazelles...something about lunch. Ha. The other new exhibit was a great area for the cheetahs. They are so stoic and proud. Absolutely gorgeous cats!!!

Anyway, I am sure my love of the zoo has nothing to do with my rantings. Yes, I know they aren't "free" but they are taken care of and I would never get to experience these gentle giants or show them to my kiddo if it weren't for a zoo.

Look at how close these giraffes are...so close people were feeding them AND Nora got to pet one. Completely bummed I didn't get a picture of that...maybe next trip!!!

Little Gym Parent's Night

Nora's Little Gym class put on a little performance to show us parents all they learned over the course of the class. It was the cutest thing ever!!! And I wish I could recall exactly what Mr. Armando said about Nora but to sum it up it was her perseverance. One time on the bars she let go mid-swing to "dismount" and landed flat on her face. She jumped right up, shook it off, and headed back to try again. That was a proud mama moment!!!

The gang with their Medals!!!
