eight {months}






making the decision to have a child is momentous:
it is a decision to forever have your heart go walking around outside your body: i am so grateful for the opportunity that i have to be a mom. no one ever told me about the special moments that are accompanied with taking care of your own child {or maybe someone did & i didn't understand because i wasn't a mom yet}. there is nothing i rather be doing than hanging out with my daughter.

Nora Grayce is 8 months old. the last few months have gone by so fast. nora's little personality is really starting to shine. she loves to eat {especially paper & her board books}, likes "lil crunchies" {baby cheetos}, loves signing time {& smiles when she watches it}, loves looking at books, has no problem crawling EVERYWHERE, puts EVERYTHING in her mouth {whatever she finds on the floor or in the grass}, loves walks, hikes, & being outside, she still only has 2 teeth {but it looks like ALL 4 are coming in on the top & two more on the bottom}, takes 2 naps {sleeps like a champ}, notices everything {like if i leave the vacuum out}, stares at people where ever we go, doesn't like to get her face wiped clean {after breakfast, lunch, or dinner}, loves to have her fingers in my mouth & her left thumb in hers {especially when she is tired}, still loves her nightly tub, she is nervous of her uncles {spencer & cory's} RC cars, smiles & laughs ALL the time, arches out of our arms when she wants down & WILL most likely be walking next month {she just has to master standing up & its all over}. she has paul & i figured out & definately holds a BIG chunk of our hearts.

we love our nora so much.
