Monday was another rough day of increased heart rates and gas pains. This was a continuation of a completely sleepless Sunday night. Those are the nights that I am incredibly thankful for the night nursing!! Amy came back again the next night – so at least Nora didn’t run her off!
Nornor did have her moments of contentment and did take a few decent naps throughout the day.
After her morning bath we got dressed up really, really pretty!
And then we got dressed up really pretty again!
Nornor did great through the night and by Tuesday morning she was looking and acting much better. We felt very comfortable canceling her morning appointment with the pediatrician and rescheduling later in the afternoon if need be. So thankful that need never came to be. She only improved!
She didn’t appreciate being left in the living room while everyone was in the kitchen!!
“I’m a big kid now too!”
“It’s exhausting being a big kid!! I guess I’ll just sleep in the kitchen here!”
I was invited to a breakfast up at the kids’ school that I was thrilled to be able to go to. Nana (my Mom) came to stay with Norns while I was away.
I got back just in time for a session with Nora’s nutritionist and speech therapist. Prunes were the Special of the Day! Nora showed off for them again.
“Oh deez are delishisss!! Look at me! I’m a professional prune eater!”
“Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom…
“All that prune eating got me tuckered out! My Mom’s got me.”
“It felt so good to get a baff after my nap!”
“Eenen’ Mommy took me on a jog to the mailbox and back. Dat was fun! I came back and decided to be good and cute for the rest of the evening!”
I’m so relieved and thankful that Nora is recovering from her sickies. We’ve been getting intermittent smiles and squeals — Happy Baby is making a comeback!
My heart is broken for the victims of the Oklahoma tornado. Yet ANOTHER reminder how life can become so different in just the blink of an eye. Don’t take one minute for granted!
“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
(John 11:25-26 NIV)
So cute. Glad she is feeling better.
:). Hoping Nora is on the path to feeling better for a great summer!
Thank God. I was a bit worried but didn’t want to overwhelm you with emails. I was sure when you need urgent extra prayers you post it on facebook. Love the dress!!. Muuaahhh 🙂
So, so glad Nora is feeling better…hopefully you can get caught up on your sleep!
LOVING ALL THE PICTURES, ESPECIALLY THE ONE OF YOU AND NORA. NORA LOOKS SO CUTE IN ALL THE OUTFITS YOU DRESS HER IN. SO GLAD NORA ROSE IS FEELING BETTER AND PRAYING IT WILL LAST A LOOOONG TIME. GLAD SHE IS LIKING A LOT OF HER DIFFERENT FOODS. GLAD YOU GOT TO GO TO THE SCHOOL TO HAVE BREAKFAST WITH THE “BIG KIDS”. GRANDMA TO THE RESCUE ANY TIME YOU NEED HER. I KNOW NORA LOVES HER GRANDMA SOOOOO MUCH. THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY THAT NORA LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT SHE WANTED OUT IN THE KITCHEN WITH EVERYONE ELSE. THEN SHE WAS A LITTLE HAPPY CAMPER. LOVE YOU ALL. GOD BLESS.
