Backyard Picture Fun! + Halloween

It’s been a rough couple of weeks as far as weather goes.  It seems like we have had so many rainy and overcast days here in the ‘retta.  We were able to get Nora outside on a few of the days that the sun peeked out and she loved every minute of it.  She loves the outdoors and I can’t wait to take her camping one day soon!

This girl loves her mama so much, and now she can say “Mama” too!!!

It’s crazy, she never used to rest her head like this when she was little, but she’s started recently.  Kristen and I think it is the sweetest thing and love that she’s starting to be even sweeter!

That’s right!  This is the first Father/Daughter tree climbing we participated in.  It went reasonably well, she did try to eat all the branches.

Because every girl has to perfect her pageant wave!

She tried to eat the leaves too.  Looking back maybe she was hungry.  Actually she just always wants to eat everything.  Babies…

My two favorite girls as happy as can be.

A little daddy/daughter time.  BTW notice the nicely cut lawn, I thought that would be the last time I mowed it but I think I might need to cut it one more time.

On second thought, I’ll just let Nora roam around and eat all the grass.  She might be more effective than a goat!  (Full Disclaimer, I was able to stop her from eating the grass.)

Love it!  Happy babies make everyone happy!

Halloween Bonus Pictures

It’s not enough to make a new post, but Nora dressed up like a Jazzercizer for Halloween (or HalloWayne as I like to call it).

Overdue Update – Nora & Disney

It’s been over two months since I’ve posted… OOPS!  A lot has happened since then so this post has a bit of everything.  Lots of pictures (mostly of Nora) are here.

Nora started out by pulling up on EVERYTHING, and now she can walk around tables, chairs, and along walls.  She has a walker that she can walk around with, but she usually runs!  Soon she will be walking with no help.  She can already make it up the stairs all by herself.

Kristen had a busy camp season (Actually she works in the CIA as you can see by her earpiece).  Nora and I went out to see her two of the weekends she was gone.  Nora had a lot of fun!

Disney World!!!! Nora’s First Trip

Even though she gave Mickey the stink eye, this girl was a CHAMP!  We did 2 days in the park and we stayed in the parks the whole day.  Nora napped in her stroller (one of our best purchases) and we all had a great time.

Now that this girl is over 20lbs we have to take turns holding her.  I think we are both getting stronger because of it.

Nora’s first Live Disney Performance

Nora will grow up knowing that all of Disney was started by a mouse!  And that Walt guy had a little something to do with it.  Proof that one person really can make a difference.

Waiting in line for her first Dumbo ride, Nora did not quite know what to do, she was looking all around and couldn’t decide whether to people watch or watch the flying elephants.

We love this little girl so much and are so thankful we had the opportunity to go to Disney word with her!
