I'm in really, really big trouble!

Sugar and Spice

And everything nice, that's what girls are made of!

Nora is soooo sweet smelling, I finally get what people mean when they just want to gobble babies up.  I could breathe her in all day!

Nora's entering the warp-drive of babyhood.  She now has her two bottom teeth, and the top right one is out (though still very little).  The top left one is almost through I think, too.  These teeth are coming fast and furious, it seems.

A couple of weeks ago I went to get her when she woke up and found her sitting upright.  I didn't know how she did it, but now I do - she can push herself back from a tummy position into sitting.  It's actually how she gets around right now - she can get on her hands and knees and rock a bit, but she moves around by leaning forward, then sitting back up, then leaning forward, etc... it's not fast, but it is effective.

In response, I have set up the cosleeper upstairs in the hallway as a playpen for when I need to shower, and the pack'n'play is in the living room for when I need her contained.  And since we are still living in a construction zone, that is much more often than when Joseph was starting to move around!

Things are about to get very interesting around here!

In note-worthy news about Joseph, he declared me to be his Best Friend the other day.  I think that tops the "best moment as a mom" category besides maybe pushing babies out!  Toddlers are pretty amazing - the highs are SO HIGH, but the lows are pretty low.  Luckily we're blessed with a pretty amazing little guy.

We tried doing swimming lessons with him last week, but only lasted 2 days.  The "lessons" were pretty much a joke, and he hated them, so I said he didn't have to go.  We'll try a different program in the winter or next year.

Gratuitous Kidlet Pictures (many more awesome photos on smugmug from 4th of July... not sure I'll get around to recapping it here):

Incredibly rare photos with Mama (due to having grandmothers around!):

My little flapper

Here's a recent picture of my other "baby" - the one that keeps us so busy that I don't have time to do laundry, dishes, or update my blog:

Changing so fast

Nora woke up crying last night and I went up to get her back to sleep to find her sitting up in the middle of our bed!  Yikes!  She was sleeping on her belly - I don't know how she got to be sitting up, and I don't think she does, either!  She rolled from back to front for the first time the other day, and I found her asleep for a nap with her feet dangling off the bed.

Last night I told T.J. that we need to get our mattress on the floor ASAP and start thinking about a new bed for Joseph so that Nora can have the crib (it's converted to a toddler bed right now).

Well, today she fell out of the bed during her nap. :(  Poor baby.  Desperate times called for desperate measures, so I set up the co-sleeper as a pack'n'play (with the tall sides since she apparently sits up on her own now) and put her in there to sleep tonight until we get up there.

In other news, she's getting her top right tooth!  It's almost through, but not quite.  Hopefully it'll push through in the next day or two so she (and I) can get some rest!

Grandma and Papa arrive from Minnesota tomorrow, and we have a jam-packed schedule while they are here!  Maybe I'll even post a few pictures.  Ha!
