Norah dancing in her birthday finest. Mommy forgot about the Hawkeye gear when she got her dressed. We could have changed. But she looked so darn cute. Hard to believe it's her first birthday in less than a month. Doesn't seem like an entire year ago that we were impatiently waiting for her arrival.

This year he couldn't wait! He was giddy. Once he climbed on to Santa's lap you could tell he was so awestruck he didn't really know what to do. He'd planned on introducing Santa to Norah, because they've never met you know. But he was so nervous he just looked at his list the whole time.
And Norah. Our curious little monkey. She laughed and smiled and yanked on Santa's beard. Didn't seem wierd to her at all that mommy had just put her on some strange man's lap.
We also put up the tree last night and decorated the whole house. We woke this morning to our first snow on the ground. It certainly is starting to feel a lot like Christmas ...
Norah had spaghetti for the first time last week. In this case a picture really is worth a thousand words. Suffice it to say that we're still picking out pieces of noodles from the carpet. But she had a ball.
She still has a couple of bottles a day, but mostly we're all about the table food now. She's also coming around to the sippy cup.
P.S. I am annoyed that I cannot get the photos to reorder correctly. Grrrr.
Norah started walking a couple of weeks ago and she hasn't stopped moving since. We thought she was good at getting around before. Boy were we wrong! She's FAST! And so curious! That probably explains why her favorite character is Curious George.

Grandma reading to all the grandbabies.
Kelsey with our baby girls.
Swimming with cousin Avery. All summer any time we coughed up the $4 it cost to get an infant into the pool, Norah HATED it. I mean HATED it. Screaming. Tears. The works. But, this little pool. The free pool in our back yard. She LOVED. Go figure.

The life of a teacher. Summers off. Life is easy. Right?
Not so much, he's discovered. Two kids are a lot of work ...
This was bananas.
As you can see, Norah isn't such a fan of eating solids. She likes to grab at what mommy and daddy are eating, but try to get a spoonful of anything in her mouth and she's not interested.
