Nora’s cardiology appointment went exceptionally well yesterday morning! She only had to have a quick EKG and exam. Dr H said he is very pleased with her numbers and overall appearance. There really is no telling what caused that hiccup in her heart rate. Incase it WAS the Synagis shot, I’m relieved that was the last one for this season. Definitely something to keep a close eye on if she has to get them next year!
Nora is 15 lbs. and 14 oz. and 26 inches long! She is getting sooo big, so fast! The fact that she’s eating and gaining so well is very encouraging!
We were so excited to see Linda M on a chance meeting in the hall on our way out. She is our “Angel on Earth” who has a way of always showing up in the right place at the right time! How sweet it was to be able to return that favor to her!! You made our day too, Linda! We’re so glad you’re back!
Nora was glad to be back for baff time!
Greta spent the night at our friends’ house, so it was just Gavin, Nora and I after William left for work. (The big kids are on spring break this week.) When Nornor’s nurse got here Gavin and I went out in search of an adventure.
From there we went to lunch, then back home. We peeked in on Nornor before heading down to the creek in our backyard for adventure part 2.
I love being able to spend one on one time with my kids!
Back home again that evening there was a really cute, sweaty baby girl who was requesting a baff. It got pretty warm in our house for a couple of days which made for a sticky, hot, sweaty baby. She really seemed to like the cooler temperature of the water that we opted for! I foresee a little kiddie pool in our near future!
“It’s kind of fun having my brudder an sister home like this! I love them soooooo much!”
“Arrrrrrrrrr, me mateys!”
“Look at me in my big girl stroller! Going for walks makes me hungry!”
“Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom.”
In a nutshell (or a lengthy blog post, as the case may be) all is well. God never ceases to amaze me, proving to me over and over and over and over again that He has complete control over this. Can you even believe that Nora is going to be ONE YEAR OLD next Wednesday?? We never dared to dream that we would see this day.
I had planned on announcing an Open House type of party to give all of you the opportunity to meet Nora. However, in light of everything that has happened lately we are going to have a smaller scale celebration. I promise we will have a day to meet Nora in the summer! 🙂

That verse gives me the chills every time I read it!!!!!!!
