Nora's Blessing Day

Here are some pictures from when little Nora was blessed. She was three months old!

She was the center of attention. Even for her diaper change. (Grandma was just checking out her problem area. She had her consultation at Primary Children's 2 days later, and surgery 10 days later.)

Valentines & Mylie's Birthday

Wow, this was a while ago and so much has happened since! Mylie had a wonderful sixth birthday and I tried to make it special for her. For me though, it was a miserable day. I was so sick, which made it a bummer. Also, Nora was developing a huge lump in her girl parts that would be the start of a long journey for her. (Long story short she had an Anal Fistula (a leaking anus) that created a series of infected abscesses in her labia. Once diagnosed, she eventually had surgery and then a terrible road to recovery.)

But anyways! Back to Mylie! She is the sweetest little girl. She is so creative and imaginative. She is always making and creating things for others. She LOVES school, playing, dancing, singing, and all things girly! Before school, she got to open a gift. She had an excited audience:

Nora was darling as usual sporting her heart sweater.

Chocolate and Strawberries! Mmmmm! Too bad I was too sick to enjoy any of it. I toughed it out to make all of it, but didn't eat even ONE chocolate covered strawberry. Can you believe that? I can't.
