Random cora

I know I haven't been on here lately, so I'm sharing some random bits about the week with Cora.

My little girl is the prettiest little thing I've ever seen--especially when she sleeps! However, I think she might be sleeping too much at night now. Last night she slept from 10 to 6. I guess its possible that I'm getting up to feed her in the middle of the night like geron says I did, but I don't remember doing it if I do. or maybe she is just wearing herself out during the day.

Other things--wednesday Geron came home for lunch. One great thing about him coming home during the day is that he helps with Cora so I can get a chance to actually do something like take a shower if I need to. This happened wednesday. While I was getting out, Geron informed me that there had been an accident in the living room. Don't tell that to a newborn's mother. I couldn't imagine what had happened, but Geron seemed more amused than panic-y. He said "scooter scooted out of her diaper." She was in her pack and play and had scooted across it leaving behind her diaper and a yellow "treasure".

today we discovered that she might like rain. It was pouring, so she didn't have a choice but to be in it a little bit. She didn't cry at all, though. Perhaps we should try giving her a bath in the rain instead of the kitchen!

And in other news, Cora is getting a boyfriend-HA! Seriously, congratulations to our friends, Lindsey and Eric who just found out they're having a boy in February. Cora's getting several new friends around the eastern states and we pray for them and their mommies daily.

Cora can't have cookies. She doesn't have teeth to chew them yet. She's been going to the nursery at church and spends time with Mrs.Jan, Miss Jennifer, and/or Mrs. Lynn. And her friends, Madeline and Hannah (2-year-olds) are usually in there, too. Wednesday night, Hannah tried to feed Cora part of her cookie. Its okay, Hannah, I know you were just SHARING and sharing is good.

Lastly, Granny and Grandpa are coming to visit Cora tonight! YEA! They'll be here for the weekend and I'm sure baby girl will be spoiled rotten by the time they go back home. But hey! Thats what Grandparents are for! ( And yes, I realize I might regret having said this later on.)

i honestly don't believe there is such a thing as babies sleeping too much at night. i was so thankful when molly started sleeping long enough that i actually got a restful night!! :)

the part about grandparents spoiling...yes that's what they're for. but just wait until she gets older, and then when she comes home from granny's, you'll have to retrain her because grannies have a wonderful way of letting grandkids do whatever they want. because, after all, they are grandkids. and aren't they perfect in granny's eyes? no matter what? :)

Toddlers like to share. At the "board meeting" at Friendship the other day, this really cute little Chinese boy was sitting by a Japanese girl. He noticed she didn't have anything to drink, so he handed her his bottle. Fortunately one of the workers found her cup and grabbed the bottle before she drank it. She was staring at it like she didn't know what it was, which she probably didn't.

We had a great time visiting with Cora. I hope we didn't spoil her too badly. Your daddy says he didn't get his eyes full of her, that he didn't think that was possible. We love all three of you!
