| Not full-on walking yet but she walks between furniture and takes anywhere from 8-10 steps unassisted.
| When she’s not walking she speed crawls all over the house.
| Says “dada” “mama” “uh-oh” “nana” we’re not sure what she means by “nana” but she says it all the time.
| Drinking water from a sippy like a pro
| Claps, waves and puts her hands above her head when we do it and say “Nora” real excited like!
| Baby Girl loves to sing. She sings anytime there is music or we are singing. Her babysitters say she sings all the time there.

Nora is still the best eater! She is mastering the pincer grasp and feeds herself so well! She has started to not be as crazy about her bottle. She likes it still but often she eats so much real food that she ends up leaving a few ounces. Some of her favorite foods include: peas, banana, blueberries, raspberries, cheese and crackers. I pray she eats this well her whole life!

Still the best sleeper. I am seriously waiting for the other shoe to drop someday because this kid sleeps so well. She rarely wakes in the middle of the night and if she does we just help her find a paci and she pops it in and goes right back to sleep. She still puts herself down at night and for naps. She doesn’t always nap well at daycare because she doesn’t like to miss out on any fun but at home she takes 2 long naps! Here is a rough schedule:

|Wakes up at 6:30 – sometimes earlier but she plays until we go and get her.

| Morning nap around 9am which usually lasts an 1-1.5 hours

| Afternoon nap around 1pm which usually lasts about 2 hours

| In bed and asleep by at least 7:30pm every night

Believe me, we realize how blessed we are. I know mostly it’s her temperament but we also attribute a lot of this to putting her on a strict schedule and Cry It Out.
