I don’t think that Nora has changed as much in a one month period as she has this past one. It’s almost as if she wakes up a bigger, more expressive, more enlightened baby every morning. This is so every exciting, but I also feel a little sad every time I realize just how much bigger she is getting. According to the home scale, she is just a bit over 18 pounds. She is officially closer to a one year old than she is to a newborn now, and it definitely shows in what all she can do….or is trying to do, for that matter. I never knew that I could find such joy in watching her figure out life and the world around her.
Those of you that know me know that I love patterns of all sorts. But I love chevron – I practically dream of it in all colors. I am yet to find the perfect chevron maxi dress for myself, but I couldn’t help but purchase this little number for Nora – adorable, right? I mean, honestly. Why didn’t they make one in MY size? I got this at The Mommy Shop here in town. If you haven’t been there, stop by. I promise, you won’t regret it!
Now that spring is here (or coming, depending on the weather that the midwest is having that day) we are planning our summer schedule in full force! Not only are we going to Colorado and Canada, but Eric and I are also planning a weekend away, just the two of us, for our anniversary in June. We’ve decided to take a camping trip to our favorite campground, Compton Ridge, in Branson. Hooray for tent living, fire making, griddle cooking, smores and bug bites. I can hardly even wait!
