Ten Months, and Then Some


Nora has been a busy little lady since our last progress report.  She's crawling everywhere!  Creeping is her most effective mode of transportation, but she can also crawl, cruise, and walk while having her hands held.  No place is beyond reach for her anymore, not even the bathroom.  I have been interrupted during a shower more than once in the past month, and finally convinced David to fix our bathroom door.  
She's also developed quite a personality.  She understands "No" now, but she doesn't like to hear it.  She's so curious and always wants to see what I'm doing, particularly when it comes to the toilet.
Here's some cool stuff she can do:
 Sign "up," "more," and "milk."
 Say "Dada"
 Wave goodbye
 Knock on doors
Stuff she likes:
 Being fanned in the face
 Chasing me across the floor
 Emptying the cupboards
 Having the butt cheeks pinched

I never did get around to month eight's pictures, but I did manage a nine month photo.  This is the only tolerable picture I had out of about 50.  I nearly gave up photography for good, but I gave myself another chance.  Orange you glad?


  1. Yes...very glad! Love her little contemplative spacey look.

  2. So glad! Don't give up! ;) Happy Mother's Day! xo
