Nap time fun

Joseph's officially done napping. I thought that I'd be sad but it's actually really fun! Nora dropped down to one nap at the same time so Nora and I get some quality alone time in the morning and then Joseph and I have a fair amount of time together in the afternoon! I have to say that Joseph's mood has improved dramatically since this happened!

Signing, talking, and walking

Nora took her first steps about a month ago, but until the last couple of days she didn't really walk much. She is definitely getting the hang of it now and practicing on her own. She is so proud of herself! We are proud, too.

Besides walking, she has started signing a bit more... Mostly milk, more, all done, and bird. Haha it's very cute. She doesn't say too much for real but approximations of brother, teddy/bear, and thank you are in the regular rotation. she also has a complete sounding "daddy" now!

Such a big girl!

Nora meets her future roommate!

Probably wishful thinking, but we had a phenomenal time with all of my college bffs, even though all the babies and a couple of the adults fell sick! Tis the season I suppose.

Nora and Hadley are 6 days apart, and it was so fun to see them together! I think Joseph liked Hadley a lot, too. He was sad to find her gone on Tuesday morning!

Thank You!

Nora is starting to try and form words beyond Mama and Dada.  Most of it sounds the same, but she has started saying "thank you"! of all things (in generally appropriate ways)!  Such manners.  haha

She's also doing some animal sounds - or trying.  She can do the sheep, and is consistent with her dog sound, but it's not very dog like yet.  I'm pretty impressed!

She's walking a few more steps now.... and will try it of her own volition, but we still have a few weeks at least I think before she prefers it to crawling.


Joseph (or I?) have really turned a corner this last week.  We've dropped his nap completely.  If we're home, he has a little quiet time while I put Nora down and then we play together and read while she sleeps.  It's so so nice.  I really am enjoying our one-on-one time, and my goal this year is to do more of it with both of them.

He's really interested in the solar system right now, so we're finally venturing out of the truck/train book section of the library (HOORAY!).  Mama is geeked out to relearn some science facts!

Raising 'em Right

Last weekend I took Joseph to the municipal ice rink for an evaluation to start him on ice skating lessons. The teacher said he'd be ok in a weekday prep class but they ended up canceling the ones we could attend, so it looks like Mama is gonna get to relive her mini mite years!

We went out tonight and got Joseph his skates, so we're all set for open skate this weekend! Wish this mama luck, I'm gonna need it!

We're back

We're back, and bigger than ever! If you've been keeping up on Facebook you'll know that Nora had her first birthday, started walking, and grew hair! I just discovered the blogger app which I hope will allow me to post more often. I miss having this outlet to show the kids off!

Without further adieu, here they are today!
