Meet Nora

My water broke on the morning of December 19th, 2012 and a few short hours later sweet miss Nora Diane (for my Grandma Diane) entered this world. The first thing the doctor said was "look at those dimples!" I remember feeling shocked, and so happy. I wanted to hold her so badly but my arms were numb from a wiggy epidural and I was so afraid I would drop her. I remember thinking how small she was. She was almost a full pound bigger than Luke was when he was born, and still she seemed as tiny as a teardrop. Bryce and I were nervous (to say the least) to have two babies so close together, and when I was pregnant we would pray for a sweet, easy baby who would sleep through the night, ha. Well, we got two out of three because miss Nor is the sweetest, easiest baby the world has ever known, such a blessing in our lives. Still working on the sleeping though, 9 and 1/2 months later, :).

Here is a pathetically abbreviated photo tour of baby girl's life so far:

Nor loves being outside and loves the feel of grass.

I am so in love with this baby girl of mine.
Dear, sweet Nora, I love you so much. I can't wait to watch you grow and develop. You fill my heart with love and joy every single day. I feel beyond blessed to be your mama. I hope we will always stay best friends like we are now (and Daddy and Luke, of course). Thank you for being so patient and forgiving when it comes to my many mistakes. You are an angel baby and I can't get enough of you. Forever is the only length of time that is long enough for me to know you, thank heaven we have that. Love, Mom
