We took Nora to one of the parks across the street after work tonight. She and another baby (a comparatively wizened 8 month old) played on the baby swings which, as you can see in the photo, she vehemently did not hate. Later we slid on the slide, bounced on the bouncy thing that’s like a teeter totter, filled our shoes with sand, climbed a fence wall thing, and went for a long walk in the stroller. Good fun. Fun baby!
Note: both bottom teeth are clearly visible in this picture. :)
Nora grabbed the camera as I was trying (yet again) to get a photo of her bottom teeth. It must be wearying to have to put up with the constant hounding of the papa-razzi. ;)
I just realized that we had another opportunity to get a picture of Nora’s aunts Ginny and Marge this weekend and once again utterly failed to do so. Very sorry!
Nora thinks her Horton Hears a Who bib is half again tastier and more interesting than her applesauce. Happy 1/2th birthday, Nora! We’ve half a mind to bake you half a cake and eat it on your behalf.
Edit: How fitting that the Red Wings have half-finished their inevitable Stanley Cup victory on Nora’s half birthday!
Our good friends the Craigses are in town this weekend and we honored the occasion with a celebratory breakfast at Angelo’s (yummmmm… Angelo’s). Here’s a picture of little Z saying goodbye to the usual star of this particular web site.
new feature: in honor of her Zness and in classic nodashiki style, this picture will expand to accommodatingly large proportions if clicked. Should we keep doing it this way?
We’ve had to get a larger laundry basket, but the baby washing machine still works great. It’s really a terrific time-saver. I wholeheartedly recommend it. :)
Nora now has not one (as of Thursday) but TWO (as of this morning) new teeth (N.B. teeth not pictured). We’re going to miss that big, gummy grin, but life rolls on, eh?
Nora’s got a new skill: removing her socks and shoes. Used to be we could keep her socks on by putting on shoes, but now she’s figured out how to get those off as well:
Sometimes putting cranky Nora in the stroller and going for a walk really does help her get to sleep. For this particular picture I only had to walk 1.8 miles before she zonked out.
