Thoughts for a Saturday

It's been a rough week. My Norah is sick, and nothing makes me more sad than watching her be miserable. The doctor diagnosed her with croup on Monday, and she seemed to be getting better until last night when we realized she was burning up. A quick thermometer check revealed she was rockin' a fever of 103.1. Not cool. Long story short, no sleep for any of us last night. So forgive my ramblings, no sleep doesn't look good on me.

I want to be cuter in the clothing department. I have some cute clothes, but it just doesn't come naturally to me. While reading a blog on dressing cuter I read this quote:

"if we're not supposed to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?"

Which started me thinking, Jason and I don't do midnight snacks. We do midnight meals. Almost daily (nightly?). One day our metabolism isn't going to be able to keep up with our eating habits and we'll look like this. And that just ain't pretty.

A dress for Norah

How adorable is this dress my mom made for Norah? If we have said "adios" to her sickness by Sunday, this is what she'll be wearing to church!

Seven Month Stats

I took Norah to her six month appointment on Monday, a month after she turned six months. Since we were in between insurance, this was the soonest we could get in. Anyway ... I was so excited to be able to come home and blog about how much she had grown and how big she was getting but that's not really the case. She's only in the 6th percentile for weight and 14th percentile for height. So basically, she's tiny. But that's okay, we still love our little bundle of joy :)

At seven months, Norah:

- Loves her feet, especially her right foot
- Claps constantly, I attribute it to her cheerleader training she gets every week
- Recently started combining her love of clapping and love of feet by grabbing her feet and clapping them together
- Is so close to crawling, we think it'll happen any day now ... but we've been saying that for a while
- Still has a toothless grin, but it's a grin she's more than willing to share
- Loves to play peek-a-boo
- Has just discovered the joy of splashing in the tub, and we can't wait for her to discover how much more fun it is to splash in a swimming pool
