When I started this blog four years ago…it was for Norah. For me to document my journey through my pregnancy with her. We had miscarried our first baby earlier that year, and when I found out I was pregnant with her. I was not happy….I was scared. I just couldn’t bear the thought of going through the loss of another baby. So I remember the whole time as I blogged my pregnancy, I was grateful, thankful to God for our little miracle. Because each baby is…I know that so much more now than I ever realized. As life has progressed, and my photography business has progressed….I have not been able to get as many photos of Norah on here as I would like. So…this posting is all about Norah TODAY….what did she do today. This was the day in Norah’s life….TODAY:
3am: I woke up at to Norah saying “mommy get up”….so I did what any exhausted mother does…let her get in bed with us, and then 10 minutes later when I couldn’t sleep because she was SO wiggly, had Jayme bring her back to her bed.
6am Woke up to Norah getting in bed with us again, and this time she fell asleep for two hours.
8am Norah is up and ready to face the day. She lies in bed and throws her leg down on the bed to “quietly” wake us up. =)
11am Church at Northbridge. Norah likes to go to church to: “learn about Jesus, have a chocolate donut, and “Smarties” from Grace”.
12:45 Grabbing a quick nap with “Snuggles” in her car seat on the way to Gregersens.
1pm Grandma and Grandpa’s house for dinner, swimming, ice cream, riding/driving the Jeep, popsicles “sub pickles” (thats what Norah calls them), Bubbles, mores swimming, Trampoline “Jumpoline” (Norah’s word), and then chilling on Grandma’s lap before she leaves. What a great summer day huh! =)
We ended the day with a tubby and watching “A Bug’s Life” . She was passed out in her bed at 8pm. Though the last words she said to me before she got in bed were” But I’m not tired”. =)
Beanie, you are loved so so much. I think back on how you make me smile, and laugh, and how blessed I am to have you as my sweet daughter. I may be very busy this summer, but you are always on my mind. YOU are why I am pursuing my dreams. I want you to see you mommy as not giving up, always trying to be better. I want you to pursue your dreams someday with no hesitation.
Love you more than I never knew how to love,
