6 months {nora}

I absolutely cannot believe that 1/2 of a year has flown by.  I only thought that time passed by quickly with Emmy, it's is FLYING by this time around.  Before I know it, it will be time to plan a birthday party.  Wait, hold on, I'm not even going to think about that right now....on to the update.

Eat: Usually just shy of 6am and then every 3 hours.  Feedings are closer together in the evening, but I see this changing as we plan to start solids soon.  So today looked something like this (note: our schedule is a bit off as Nora is fighting an ear infection) 515am, 645am, 9am (took very little bottle), noon, 3pm, 530pm (nursed) and 650pm (bottle, usually between 4-6 ounces)
Sleep: Asleep by 7pm and usually awake by 6am.  We still have one or two times during the night that we have to go in and insert paci.  
Naps: Naps are sporadic.  Usually a short morning nap (30 minutes) a longer noon nap (1-2 hours) and a short afternoon nap (another 30 minutes).  She definitely isn't getting in the recommended 14 hours of sleep per day...we are trying to get there.
Food: none yet, starting soon.
Health: Double ear infection 09/12/12
Shoes: I put some size 2 shoes on her tonight, they had a little bit of room in them.  So she's probably still a 1.  I figure it doesn't matter much though since we RARELY put shoes on her.
Clothes: 6-9 months.
Diapers: Size 3.
Trips: Alabama VS Arkansas football game in Fayetteville on Sep 15.  Nora didn't do the best.  She didn't want a bottle, didn't want to nurse, didn't want to nap....I will choose to blame it on the ear infection and not the probable fact that she just doesn't like to travel.
Likes: still loves for her big sister to be all up in her space, waving her arms like a mad woman when nursing or taking bottle, for people to look at her- it makes her face light up, bath time, peek a boo, her feet- to touch things with said feet and for people to play with said feet
Dislikes: taking full bottles, when we leave her sight in a moment of need, sleeping ALL the way through the night, taking medicine (taste or control issue?  Maybe a little bit of both)
Milestones: She rolled over from belly to back twice for my mom on Sept 18.  She did it once for me as well.  This was the first time she did this since 3 1/2 months.  Chris still hasn't seen it and Nora hasn't repeated it since the 18th.  She is also so close to sitting up.  I think Emmy will have so much more fun with her once this happens.  And then tonight she found her toes!  Oh, the great toys that never go away.  Making lots of sounds with an "h" sound (like hah, huh, and heh).  She also has a raspy little voice, which reminds me that I need to get the camcorder out more often.
Other: Nora is turning into such a happy girl.  It is much easier to get smiley pictures of her nowadays.  She was never really unhappy, but now her face lights up with delight at the smallest things.  She absolutely loves Emmy and misses her when she's away.  She has started watching us as we eat so we are going to start food soon.  I actually fed her a few little bites of mandarin oranges tonight and she did pretty well with them.  Of the 4 pieces, only one got 
spit back out with the tongue thrust reflex.

Seesters @ 1/2 year old

Looking alike enough to be related?  YES
Looking alike enough to confuse them in pictures? No, not to me
Looking cute enough to pinch and kiss chubby cheeks?  ABSOLUTELY!

Love my healthy girls.

I am working on a 6 month post.  Looking at pictures from Nora's past month of life makes me so sad because it has completely flown by.  I can't believe that at 1046am tomorrow, our little one is 1/2 a year old!  Please father time, slow down a little bit for this mama?

This has been a good week.  I need to do a "life update"...but there's so much to write that my mind shuts down just thinking about it!  So instead of words, here are some pictures.  We've had a good week: nice seasonal weather, new Five Guys in Tulsa, making lots of puppy chow, and enjoying time as a family.
