Rolling

Norah is getting very good at rolling, almost everytime we put her down to play, she rolls to her tummy.

Such a happy baby! She really likes her walker from Grandpa and Grandma, a different view of the world when you can sit up!

Hugs for Daddy

Must have baby hugs before going to work!

O Christmas Tree

Our cat Larkin loves to climb ladders. She made it to a new window the other night:

We took the ladder away for a while thinking it would teach her not to climb so high. Yeah, she just jumped to the back of the couch from that window, and went right back up the ladder!
Here is our beautiful, huge tree! It's about 12feet, the biggest we've ever had!



Doctor Appt


Yesterday was Norah's 4 month well check.

She's now 13lbs 15oz = 57th%, and 25in = 77th%

So a little tall for her weight, but growing beautifully! She looks plenty chubby to me! She had another round of shots and slept most of the day afterwards. Today she seems to be okay, maybe a little sleepy but not bad. Oh, and her eyes are turning brown!

My new shoes!

They are still too big, but aren't they cute? Found them at old navy on a super sale :) Oh and Norah loves to stand now, with lots of support of course. Don't you just wanna squish those chubby legs?!

Four Months

As of 12/19 Norah is four months! This last month has brought many new things. She can blow great raspberries and she found her feet! They are sooo much fun to play with :) She also started rolling from her back to tummy just last week. It seemed early for that so I googled it, gotta love google, and most babies roll back to tummy at 5-6months! We're wondering if this is going to be a trend with her mobility and she will be an early walker....
She is smiling all the time, laughing more and it's getting easier to make her laugh. She will reach for, grab, and hold toys now. Of course she has to taste them in the process, all things go in the mouth! She is also, although I'm still nervous to say anything, a great sleeper. Last night we put her down by 11pm (late night after xmas party) and, well, it's 9:40 and she's still asleep. This is offically the longest she's slept. We are sooo lucky, I know. We have been swaddling her every night and we're trying to wean her off of that. This last week we have been leaving one arm outside the swaddle blanket so she can get used to the freedom. We were concerned she would wake herself up hitting her face or something if we just stopped the swaddle cold turkey so it's been a gradual adjustment. She did sort of wake up a few times but once we gave her the magic binki she went right back to sleep. Hopefully next week we will be brave enough to put her to bed without the swaddle at all and have a smooth transition without messing up her night.
Her little personality is also starting to show, she has learned a super high pitched squeal which was her favorite noise for several days....blowing raspberries has been more interesting the last few days, thank goodness. She has her bad moments but over all Norah is such a good baby! Oh and the most adorable cutest beautiful baby ever :)
And now I have to go check on her because I can't believe she is still sleeping.....I'll get some pictures up soon.

Milestones

Today Norah learned that she can grab and play with her feet, and she can roll from back to tummy! She's been rolling tummy to back since 5-6weeks, but now she can go both ways! She's also getting really good at blowing raspberries/motorboat sounds.

Cousins

We went to visit Kaylee yesterday for her 1st Birthday! She's walking now!

Balloons are Fun!

Yes she is laughing, while it may sound like she's crying, she really was having a good time! She just figured out how to be loud and noisey (without crying) a few days ago.

Christmas Tree

What a beautiful day! We were all home and the weather was nice so we decided to go get our Christmas tree. We went to a place just up the road from us and found a great big tree. Norah finally got to wear the snowsuit that cousin Kaylee wore home from the hospital last December!

Our first Christmas tree hunt as a family!
We found a good one and George got to cut it down, with a few pointers from Dad.
There it is! All 10+ feet of tree :)
TaDa!
Now we have to start bringing up xmas boxes from storage. This is a HUGE tree, I love it!

The many faces....

Of Norah!

Hello? Oh you're going to take pictures of me?


Okay! Yay! I'm so happy and cute!!!


Wait! Now I'm sad.....BIG POUT!!!
Have you ever seen so much pouty lip?!
