Nora 6 and 7 months

Our sweet Nora Jo is 7 months! Months 6 &7 have been amazing. She is sleeping through the night and her momma feels like a new woman! 

She is an eating machine and loves some fruits. True to her nature, if she doesn't like the food you are trying to get her to eat she gags dramatically and acts as if she might throw up. 

She is thinking so hard about crawling and can get her little knees up but mooshes her little face in the floor in the process and just jibber jabbers, talking into the floor. 

She is incredibly ticklish and loves to laugh.

She adores her big sister (most of the time) and has recently discovered all of her sisters toys. She rolls all over the floor until she catches one of Lucy's toys and then proceeds to slobber all over it. 

I can't believe you are on your way to being mobile, and are closer to turning one than you are being my newborn baby! We love you sweet Nora Jo. 

Trunk or Treat

We went to our first "Trunk or Treat" this weekend! It was a cute little chance to debut our Halloween costumes and practice Trick-or-Treating. 

Lucy has insisted on being Sully from Monsters Inc. this year (which we may have seen 3,000 times) "because he's blue and blue is my favorite." 

The babies were less than thrilled about all the dressing up and Nora lasted about 20 minutes in her Owl costume before screaming to get out of it. 

But oh those cheeks!

Some of the trunks had little games to play before you could get your candy. The girls loved it! Lucy also wanted to eat a different candy in between each and every car. 

It was a great practice for Trick-or-treating and also very confusing to a three year old who has just been taught not to take anything (including candy) from strangers because they are bad.

We can always un-confuse her next week, right?

In the meantime, we will be practicing our ROAR...
