average...

is PERFECT!
yesterday was Nora's 4 month well check (2 shots (bandaged with love) and one oral vaccination) my awesome husband made sure that he could make the appt. with us (he has never missed a doctors appointment with me all during my pregnancy & since nora's arrival) which i love, he is my hero.

Nora weighed in at: 13 pounds 13 ounces (60%)
        her length at: 24 inches (50%)
& her noggin circumference at: 16 inches (40%)
& according to baby statistics Nora is "average" (& according to me that is PERFECT!)

i love being a mother, especially to this girl. she is teaching me the value of sleep. i still cant seem to get her to sleep through the night yet (currently trying to babywise her) but she is sleeping in her room in her crib (finally). when i rock her at night, it takes both arms. she wakes up with a smile every morning (even if the night was CRAZY). she still takes 3 naps during the day. she still loves the tub. she still prefers to stand up rather than sit. she still has to check everything out around her. & she still has paul and i wrapped around her finger.


these photos attest to how chubby she is getting & that all she wears around our home is a onesie.

She is so Adorable...it took Thomas awhile before he started sleeping through the night too. I always hated giving my babies those shots...but we all know that they need them so they can be healthy
