Yes, it's another...

post about Nora. Do you ever expect anything else at this point? A lot has gone on since the last time I posted. We went to her 4 month appointment a week ago. She weighs 10 lbs 3 oz and is 24.25 inches long. She's only in the first percentile for weight. And the fifty second for height. She's so tiny. The doctor said he wasn't concerned because she's gained two pounds since her last appointment, she's just thin.

She HATED the shots and screamed for a good five minutes. It broke my heart. Luckily there was something there to mend the seams. I caught her laughing for the third time on video. I can honestly say I don't think I've felt that kind of joy before. It is the sweetest thing. See for yourself.

I love her.

We also fed her cereal for the first time. She opened up just fine to get the food inside but it didn't stay in there long. I haven't been too persistent in it because she doesn't seem all that interested yet.

I was reading on a friends blog about how her little baby boy is 10 months and she can't believe how fast the time  has gone by. It literally made me sad to think that someday (soon) Nora is going to be 10 months. I mean, it really is so fun watching her do and learn new things, but I just want her to stay my tiny baby forever.

(I would totally recommend the Baby Bjorn for anyone that likes to get things accomplished with a baby. Nora would recommend it to. She thinks it's comfy.)

I got my business license and tax ID and everything for my photography business. There's no turning back now. I'm so excited about it. I've learned so much over the winter and can't wait to start applying all of it to my pictures.

Darin has been doing such a good job on the basement. We just had it sheetrocked and just have all the finish work left. New studio, here I come!

I'm glad Summer is getting closer. I can't wait to do all the Summery things with Nora.

We're busy around here and life couldn't be better.

That's all.

Love, love, love the hair!

Nora's getting so big! I love all the new milestones - so fun!

I'm so excited for you that you are getting your photography business up and going, too!

I LOVE your hair too! Its a perfect cut for you! She's adorable. They do grow up so fast. I totally know what you mean. I was just looking at Bryn's newborn pictures and thinking that 16 months couldn't have passed already. Treasure every minute!
Yay for a studio! I'll have to call you I need to get the kids pictures taken BAD! Sorry for such a long comment. :)

You hair looks great. Nora is so small. It is so cute. Lexi weighed that at her 2 month appointment. I started her on Rice cereal a few days ago. She's younger but can't get enough milk, so... It doesn't help with sleeping like i thought it would though. Bummer!

A studio?? How fun! That is going to be so exciting to have done! Soo.. you should somehow sneak into Skye Johansen's house. haha! Totally kidding. She has an AMAZING studio downstairs in her basement. I can tell you all about it if you'd like :) It would be soooo fun to have!

Nora is a doll! Skinny, little thing.

One of these days I want you to take some photos and me and Trev. We got jipped with our wedding pictures and don't really have very many with the two of us. I'm thinking fall???

And of course, I already told you, but your hair really is too cute!

What a cute video of her giggling. I love that sweet sound! Congratulations on getting your business license and tax ID. That is so exciting! It'll be fun to see how your studio turns out too. What a big project for you and Darin!! But it looks like you two are fully enjoying your busy and exciting life with Nora :)
