Though you may not be able to tell it from this blog, I have been up to a few things besides just changing diapers and figuring out how to take care of a baby. Though that is still 90% of my day, a few other exciting things are happened too.
For Christmas, Will is getting me a new chair for the living room. You know you're old when all you want for Christmas is a chair with good back support. I've had back issues my entire adult life, and sitting on our soft-ish couch with the baby just isn't cutting it. I love our nursery, but can't wait to be able to rock Norah downstairs in front of the fire and my favorite window all winter. We're going to try and get out to a few different furniture stores, but right now I'm leaning toward the Wingback Convertible Rocker or the Charleston Upholstered Convertible Rocker, both from Pottery Barn Kids. Color choice is TBD. One day this week Norah and I are going to hit the mall and give them a test drive. I can't wait!
Speaking of Christmas, can you believe it's in like 8-9 weeks! Which means Thanksgiving is even sooner! To say I'm excited for the holidays this year is an understatement. I can't wait to include Norah in all of our family traditions, and create plenty of new ones to continue with her and our other future kiddos for the rest of our lives. I've already spotted a few things online I want to buy.make to add to the holiday season at our casa. I already have a Fall + Winter Holiday Pinterest board, but I created one specifically for Christmas 2014 since I want this to be the best yet.
We're also planning a small get together with friends and family for Norah's baptism, which will take place the Sunday of Halloween weekend. We're not doing anything fancy, but I still want to plan a few dishes to make for whoever stops by after for lunch, and some yummy drinks. I also need to figure out what I'm going to wear. I'm in between regular and maternity clothes right now, so hopefully I can find something in my closet that will work.
Last but not least, my baby does NOT stop getting cuter. She just doesn't. Couldn't write a post without a couple of the later pics of Miss Norah! I can't believe she's almost two months. Love this little peanut more than I thought possible.
