New tooth for Norah

Our sweet little girl just keeps getting bigger. Not really, actually, she's having trouble gaining weight. But her skill set is growing! She waves, gives kisses (nice big wet kisses), gives "loves," pulls herself to a stand, drinks from a straw and chases the kitty around making her kitty noises. And after many tears and sleepless nights (for both mommy and Norah) she finally sprouted her first tooth. If you look closely, you can totally see it in the third picture down - and consider yourself lucky because she likes to keep this beauty hidden. She'll either clamp her mouth shut or put her tongue over her tooth whenever anyone tries to get a glimpse.

So my awesome cousin Bri wrote a book, and I'm giving away a signed copy on my photo blog!

Check it out.

Also, I started a new blog to document cute moments by Norah.

Check it out.

Moving pictures

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, a moving picture ought to be worth much much more right? Especially when the subject is this cute. So this is me, sharing the cuteness with you:

Video one: Norah loves to sing along and headbang to the song her pony sings. She's so hard core.

Video two: Jason and I spent 4 hours on Saturday making Norah baby food. She very much approves of mango.

Video three: just being cute

Liahona Basketball Tournament

Remember how in my last post I mentioned Norah was sick? Well, we ended up taking her to the emergency room that night ... let's just chalk that one up to "expensive mistakes first-time parents make" and move on, shall we?

With Norah all better, she and I joined my mom and sisters for a Richfield adventure! What's Richfield? Richfield is a teeny tiny town about two and a half hours from home. The Liahona basketball team made it to the state tournament, so I went to coach my cheerleaders. The games were so much fun, but the time in between was not so much. Liahona ended up taking second in state, pretty impressive if you ask me.
