Nora @ 8 Months

posted by Andrea | 08/4/2012 | 17 comments

My beautiful blue-eyed girl is 8 months old…

Well, she WAS 8-months old two weeks ago already; however, since I was on my blogging break, and since I certainly didn’t want you to miss one month of cute Nora pictures, I figured “better late than never” right?

Nora @ 7 Months

posted by Andrea | 06/23/2012 | 22 comments

Seven month! Last year at this time, we were thrilled to find out we were having a girl — and I was finally starting to LOOK pregnant {not just chubby}

Yes, everyone told us how different our lives would be after Nora was born… and we believed them. However, we honestly had no idea how true those words would be.

Nora @ 6 Months

Seriously! 6 months already! Nora is getting so big, and you know what… I LOVE it!

I’ve never been a huge baby person and I just can’t wait for Nora to start crawling, walking, talking, and growing into a cute, chubby toddler. I suppose that when all my children are grown, I’ll look back and regret wishing them through the newborn phase of life… but right now, I couldn’t be happier!

Nora @ 5 Months

That’s right friends… our babe is already 5 months old!

I feel like I’ve been writing these monthly updates on a WEEKLY basis, but maybe that’s just because I’ve been trying so hard to take lots and lots of pictures throughout the month!

Nora is growing like crazy and reached many milestones again this month… it’s still not all butterflies and roses, but we’re slowly starting to figure her out.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I know I’ve lamented the fact that Nora already seems to be so strong-willed and stubborn {like refusing to take naps!} but the other day, Dave and I were joking about how Nora is actually SO much like me!

Yup, I’m strong-willed and stubborn too… and once we started thinking about it, we came up with a whole list of traits and characteristics that are strikingly similar between my daughter and myself 🙂

Nora at 4 Months

posted by Andrea | 03/22/2012 | 19 comments

Nora is 4 months old today… and it’s hard to believe that last year at this time, she still wasn’t even a thought in our minds! I do remember feeling extremely tired last March, but I figured it was because of all the extensive home renovations and the fact that I was out-of-town twice in one month.

Little did I know that a year later, we would have a 4-month-old baby girl!

Nora at 3 Months

Our baby is already 3 months old… as of yesterday!

Some days, it seems like these past weeks just flew by, other days… it feels like I’ve been doing this for years! Although she is the cutest baby ever {small bias here} these last few months haven’t been all roses and butterflies.

Parenting and motherhood is hard work! But things are getting better… she is smiling all the time and her personality is really starting to shine through!

Four Generations… Again

posted by Andrea | 02/6/2012 | 12 comments

26 years ago… we took a four-generation picture the day I was baptized.
Yesterday… we took another four-generation picture for Nora’s baptism.

We both wore the same dress, we both were cute as a button, and we both had the privilege of Godly mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. It was a good day!

Nora is 2 Months Old!

Nora turned TWO months old yesterday… and seems pretty darn excited about it.

For one-month photo shoot, we had to take so many pictures because she was either sleeping or crying… this month, we also had to take a bunch, but it was because she was moving SO much!

She Looks Just Like Her Mom

posted by Andrea | 01/19/2012 | 7 comments

I’ve been getting lots of emails and comments about how much Nora looks like me… and I have to say I agree!

However the other day, as I was looking through my old pictures {on our portable hard drive}, I came across this picture of me — crying in my bouncy seat. I have an almost identical picture of Nora crying in her bouncy seat…

What do you think? Does she look like her mom?

Nora is One Month Old!

I can’t believe our little Nora is already one month old!

This past month has been pretty crazy — mostly because we’ve never had such a lack of scheduling around here before. Nora is the new boss and whatever she “says” goes — even if it’s totally inconvenient for us 🙂

Nora’s Birth Story and Life Updates

posted by Andrea | 12/12/2011 | 19 comments

After being on maternity leave for almost 3 weeks, I’m back; and I have a mountain of new tips and ideas to share with you! But first, I thought I would take a few moments to share a little about Nora’s birth story, update you on the last 3 weeks of my life, and answer some of the MANY questions I’ve gotten via email, facebook, twitter, and blog comments.

Welcome to the World, Nora Faith!

With joyful hearts, Dave and I welcomed our precious baby girl, Nora Faith, into the world yesterday, 11/22/11, at 3:40pm {less than 4 hours after getting to the hospital!}
She is PERFECT — weighing in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and measuring 21 inches.

Thank you so much for all your thoughts, prayers, emails, comments, messages, tweets, etc.
We feel so blessed and loved!
