Ornamentalist

I’m exhausted from a long day of Fuss Management. I also hung, what seemed to be, about 3 billion ornaments on the tree tonight which constituted just as many trips up and down {what seemed to be} a 50 foot ladder. ALMOST finished. 1 billion more to go!

Here are some pictures from today.

Nora’s cold is still lingering, but it’s not giving her nearly as much problems as her gassy belly. She’s only appeased by baffs and bouncing on the exercise ball. We splurged on a Mamaroo chair for her which doesn’t really seem to have the desired effect we were hoping for. It’s not really a swing, and not really a bouncy seat, but it is designed to mimic human movement with bouncing and swaying. The settings are called: Car ride, Kangaroo, Tree Swing, and Ocean Wave. You can even plug your mobile device in to play through its speakers. Maybe it’s the ACDC that she’s having trouble relaxing to. She has to know that it’s a long way to the top if she wants to rock and roll. (ACDC lyric for those unfamiliar) 😉 — Yes, I’m kidding.

Goodnight!

Oh, by the way, thank you for the tips on photo editing apps!!!! Exactly what I was looking for! 🙂

  1. NORA LOOKS SO TALL IN THAT FIRST PICTURE. THE PICTURE OF YOU AND HER IN FRONT OF THE TREE IS WONDERFUL. SHE SEEMS TO REALLY LIKE ALL THE COLORS ON THE TREE. HEY NORA, YOU SURE DO HAVE A FANCY CHAIR THERE. YOU WILL LIKE IT BETTER WHEN YOU ARE NOT WANTING YOUR MILKIES. I LOVE YOU LITTLE GIRL. THAT TREE IS ONE OF THE PRETTIEST ONES I HAVE EVER SEEN. AFTER SEEING THE ORNAMENTS ON IT, IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. BET YOU AND YOUR MOM IS TIRED AFTER ALL THE TRIPS UP AND DOWN THAT LADDER. YOUR NEW CAMERA SURE TAKES REALLY GOOD, SHARP COLOR PICTURES. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK END. ENJOY YOUR FAMILY AND GET SOME REST ALEISA. TODAY (THE 7TH) WAS MY MOTHER’S BIRTHDAY. WISH WE STILL HAD HER WITH US, BUT SHE IS WITH JESUS. I ALWAYS SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HER, IT JUST MAKES ME ABLE TO COPE A LITTLE BETTER. WELL GUESS I BETTER BE GETTING TO BED. LOVE YOU ALL, AND HOPE YOU GET A REALLY GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP. GOOD NIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

  2. Our first born was gassy & had horrible colic. All she wanted was to be held and walked ’til our arms and knees fell off. She did seem to be consoled when we cradled her in our arms on her belly…she would fall asleep like a limp puppy (completely relaxed).

  3. Have you ever fed Nora in an “elevated side lying position?” It’s where you would hold her on her side (similar to the football hold in breast feeding positions) with her head higher than her tummy. This is an awesome way to feed babies, especially on oxygen to make it both safer and easier for Nora. It also may help her to get less air bubbles and have less gas pains!!! Give it a try, I think you’ll love it!!

    You are amazing by the way!!! Such an incredible family to watch!
