Lots of New Photos

I just spent an obscene amount of time working on them, so I'm not gonna spend even more time putting them up here, too, but they are all on the smugmug website for your pleasure:

My favorite:

Toddler Grammar

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - the process of learning a language is so neat to experience!  Especially with toddlers.

Plural: Lettuce
Singular: Letta

Plural: Mac'n'Cheese
Singular: Mac'n'Chee

There are more, but I forget.  It's freaking awesome.  

Pulling Up!

Nora's been trying for several days now, and today she finally figured out how to get both legs up.  So now she can pull up on short things.  I'm sure pulling up on the couch/chairs is next. 

Too too fast, little lady!

Words and Teeth and Measurements, Oh MY!

Nora is 9 months old (and some change).  Holy smokes.  Time's flying, and I'm trying to start her birthday party planning because I know it's going to creep up on me.

Nora's favorite things:
- finger foods; she is not very interested in purees
- cords, and outlets, and small choking hazzards
- pulling Joseph's hair
- patty cake
- being tossed in the air

New and exciting things:

- Dada and Mama: Nora started saying Dada last week and meant it!  And she started saying Mama yesterday.  Woo hoo!  It's freaking adorable (even at 2am)

- Teeth!  She's sort of up to 6 (one was out but I think it swelled back in - poor baby!)  She has 4 on top and 2 on the bottom

- Crawling - yes, I did document the day, but she's quite proficient now and can go where she needs to.  Last week she was getting stuck under the couch and such by pushing herself backwards, but she seems to be able to maneuver now

- Pediatrician: We had her 9mo appointment, and she's looking great!  here are the stats:

Weight: 16lb 4oz (10%)
Height: 27.75" (50%)
Head Circ: 44cm (50%)

She's started doing this "party time" wake up at night, which is NOT CUTE.  Neither of my babies have ever been stellar at staying asleep at night, but at least Joseph always went right back to sleep after nursing.  Ever since Nora learned to sit up by herself, she will wake up and want to have a dance party.  The only way to get her back to sleep is if she is actively nursing.  I'm all for night time parenting, but even I draw the line at nursing for 7 hours straight.  Sorry kid.  So we've had some long nights lately and I'm ready to figure this out.  I might try motrin tonight in case it's teething related.
