A Cuddle

Today was a first I won't forget ever. MY BABY GIRL CUDDLED!!

The thing is Nora is not a cuddler, nope, not one bit. Since she has been a baby she has never liked to cuddle. She is always go go go and do do do. Who needs to cuddle when you could be playing or exploring?

So this Mama is very deprived because I am such a cuddler it drives Matt crazy sometimes. I try and try but Nora has never given in. Not even when sick. She just keeps playing!

So this is a small miracle to me. She was taking a nap and got woken up by the side gate slamming ( thanks to Papa Bear). She screamed for me and when I came in I saw she was still super sleepy so I put her on our bed and laid with her. That's when she came over to me and put her head on mine and I hugged her and WE CUDDLED FOR 5 MINUTES!!

I think this was the best thing that happened in January by far! Such a sweet moment!

Since I didn't get any photos of us cuddling here are some of her playing outside!

Rainy Days

The past week has been cold and rainy which is not fun when you have a little one that LOVES being outside. We spend so much time outdoors that I almost didn't know what to do with her inside! When it wasn't raining we bundled up and spent as much time in the fresh air as we could.

Nora loves her buggy! It has pretty much replaced her stroller. We take it to the park and around the neighborhood all the time. She picks up the pokey balls from the tree and stores them in the trunk of the buggy. It is adorable!

Beach Day

The other Saturday we headed to my favorite place in the world, the beach! Nora didn't fall asleep for her first nap until half way there so we decided to take a detour so she can sleep a little longer. We went through the Santa Cruz hills which are beautiful. Lots of lush green vegetation and million dollar mansions (always fun to look at). 

We ate at the best Mexicanish place ever called Planet Fresh. It's a burrito place but they are super healthy and yummy. Then we had the best ice cream in the world for dessert at Penny Ice Cream. I'm boring and always go with the Tahitian Vanilla. But it's the most amazing vanilla ever. Nora sure didn't complain!

Then we headed to play at the beach...

 Nora's first nose scratch. She fell on the driveway.

I've come to the realization that I need to invest in a tripod. I am barely ever in pictures!
