Hearing that sweet baby’s squeals makes my heart sprout wings, nearly taking off out of my chest!
Nora has done so much better today! No more pukes and very minimal boogie extractions.
A regularly scheduled baff was in order just to start things off right!
After we’d been in for about an hour I decided to lay Nora down on my chest to work on her neck muscles / head control. She’s actually getting really good at holding her head up for extended periods of time! After a couple of minutes she gently put her little head down on my chest, her sweet eyes just wandering around the room. It was a sweet moment that I was expecting to be over in a matter of seconds. I smiled down at her, pouring warm water over her exposed little back and hiney. Her eyes grew heavier and heavier and the next thing I knew, she was sound asleep on me!! She’s never fallen asleep on me in the tub!! After I successfully dismissed Satan’s attempts of persuading me that maybe something is wrong (??!!!) I was able to bask in this euphoric occasion. Tears of joy ran down my cheeks. I continued to pour warm water over her until about an hour later when the water started to get cold.
This was one of those sweet, precious things that I will remember forever! Sadly, we had to get out, but nap time resumed once we got back downstairs.
I was able to get out for a little bit this afternoon since my Mom was coming over to get her Nornor-fix. Cute pictures from Nana:
Nora is adept in communicating to us what she wants. She puts in orders for milkies, she lets us know when she’s happy about things, and she also lets us know when she NEEEEEEDS a baff, even if she’s already had 2 that day! She tends to be a little dramatic and knows when to really pour it on. We think she’ll probably be an actress someday so we’re gonna go on ahead and register her with Actorwebs.com.
I’m so so so thankful for a good day. It even ended beautifully.
Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words! (2 Corinthians 9:15 NLT)
