Happy Birthday to Sweet Nora Liv. And happy Valentine's Day to all of you! What a year it has been. As of a few days ago Nora has lived in one place (our new house) for longer than any other place--five months : ) We're praying that her next year (or ten or so) will be much more uneventful!
Here are the stats:
She weighs about 21 pounds
She has 8 teeth (and 4 molars about to pop through)
She's not walking--but has taken her first tentative steps
No clue how tall she is
She says "Ezra" "yes" (with an emphatic nod) and occasionally "Da-da"
We went with some cupcakes with flowers and bees on them.
Nora's birthday party was supposed to be Saturday evening. However, another funeral altered our plans. Our kids were too sick to take to Uncle Dave Lunden's memorial, so we stayed at Great Grandma's house an set up the birthday party while daddy went to the memorial. When Grandpa and Grandma Tractor, Uncle Jake and Aunt Emily, Daddy, Great-Grandma, Uncle Mark and Aunt Patti and even Drewskis got back from the memorial we celebrated Nora's birthday. Thanks for letting us dirty up your house, Great Grandma!
Nora was leaking snot in just about every picture. She's feeling lots better than she did last week, but still on the mend.
Great Grandma's treadmill is a favorite(if not safe) toy.
She may be the fiercest mama's girl out there--but she still shares her love with daddy.
Very interested in what's inside the packages : ) Good thing she had two big helpers so that the process of opening was speedy.
Following in her older brother and sister's footsteps, she did not make a big mess of her cake.
Loving on her new little "sleep sheep". He makes soothing noises and is soft as soft can be. And maybe he'll work a sleep miracle on her.
Thank you Lord Jesus for such a sweet little gift to love and care for!
