pj's & pumpkins

Norah & I have been so so blessed to have my mother-in-law in town while Brad has been away working.  She has truly been a God send & made me realize that I wish we were all a little closer so Norah could enjoy her snuggles more often.  She kept me occupied to help make the time go by a little faster & was a huge help around the house.  I look forward to her return in December with Opah!

Omah has started a tradition with her oldest grandchildren... always buying PJs for each holiday.  It started at Christmas time with her own kids.  They would get a new pair of PJs on their bed on Christmas Eve & has spread to each holiday with the grand kids.  I LOVE that!!!  And I love that Norah gets to join in on the fun!  She makes one cute little pumpkin!

To continue in the Halloween festivities, we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out the family pumpkins!
I may or may not have gotten Norah all dressed up for the day... and it may or may not have been 75 degrees outside.  Thank goodness for layers...

6 months

Norah turned 6 months on October 12th.  It's so hard to believe that we're half way to her first birthday!  She has grown so much in 6 months.  Her personality lights up the room.  She wakes up with a smile on her face and spends her entire day laughing.  I hope she always looks at me with eyes full of love and happiness!  I love that Brad and I are the center of her world.  I want that feeling to last forever!  She loves to explore her surroundings.  She has spent the past month rolling across the living room floor, pressing any buttons she can reach.  She loves to touch everything and feeling different textures.  Damon showers her with kisses & her giggles fill the room.  Norah is such a snuggler.  Still, at 6 months old, she loves to sleep in our arms.  It never gets old.  Time goes by too fast.  I plan on embracing each moment!

I have a computer full of pictures & a million and one photos to ooh and ahh over!  I can never get enough of this adorable face... the big smiles and the goofy faces.  I adore this sweet girl!  This is a little bit of our September.
