Nora's One!

Happiest birthday to my sweet Nora. I am still in denial that you are now one. I'm so excited to continue to see you grow and your personality blossom, but in the same sense, I absolutely adored your year as a baby.

You're funny, sweet, rambunctious, independent and so darn lovable. Always smiling, even when you're tired or sick. And the thumb. Yes, you are quite the thumb sucker. It's cute for now but I'm not too sure how we can stop it. And you won't stop moving. You've been rolling around beginning at 3 months and now a crawling/couch surfing machine. Soon I'm sure you will be walking. 

And one last thing, your giggle is absolutely adorable and contagious. Your sister can make you laugh just by talking or smiling at you. And when you laugh, she laughs...and mom and dad melt. 

Dearest Eleanor Anne, Nora, Nora-Bora, Ella-Bella and I'm sure many other names ...we absolutely are smitten with you and love you to pieces!
Almost 1!

Nora on the day she was born.  My has she grown!

#100HappyDays #Day10

How many times have you attempted a Pinterest idea and it was major fail? 

Well, I can personally say like 1,738 times for myself. Kidding. But seriously, I'm in love with Nora's daycare treats for Wednesday. My girls even taste tested it and it got 4 thumbs up. :)

#100HappyDays #Day9

My 100 Happy Days, Day #9 picture was from this weekend. Maverick Hockey was in town playing at the Xcel for the North Star Cup Tournament and we had tickets for both days. We debated bringing the girls and ended up doing so. So happy we did because they had a blast! The weather was amazing and we also had the opportunity to take in a bit of the Winter Carnival in Rice Park. Such a busy but fun weekend.

Here is a quick pic of my 100 Happy Days, Day #7 picture. 

My little mini me and I relaxing in the most comfy chair ever after a day full of shopping. If you know Ev, you know that she will never ever pass up a shopping trip. She makes my heart so full. #shoptilyoudrop #dadsworstnightmare

Forsythe Comfy Christmas 2014

Welcome to the Forsythe Comfy Christmas!  

We decided to have a more casual, comfortable, and laid-back holiday versus all of the hustle and bustle, along with stress it can bring.  The girls wore their jammies all day on Christmas. I declared that here on out we will always have a Comfy Christmas!

One of the reasons it was a bit more mellow this year was due to little Nora coming down with RSV three days before Christmas.  RSV is not fun for little ones. Her immune system fought off the upper respiratory part of it pretty well, but it would not kick the congestion.  She had a left ear infection that cleared up, then a right ear infection, and now a double within the last 12 days.  Tubes may be in our future. One allergic reaction, five doctors visits, three pharmacist consultations, two nurse line conversations, and three medications later we have our fingers crossed she is on the mend.  Throughout it all, she has been such a sweet, happy girl.

Evie had a blast this Christmas.  She has asked when Santa will be back and so concerned that the Christmas section of Target is no longer there.  Ha!  She was showered with love from her grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, and daycare providers.  She is an awesome playmate for her sister. Little does she know we still have one more Christmas to celebrate with my side of the family!

Here are some photo randoms:

 Nora and I stayed home from the Forsythe Christmas due to both of us being under the weather, but Aaron FaceTimed so I could see the kids open up their presents.  

Christmas morning was a blast, as usual.  The kiddos even slept until 9 am!  I was so surprised how much Nora enjoyed opening her presents!

We went to my mom's Christmas morning, and afterwards we headed over to my grandma's to hang out.  The girls had a blast playing with Rocky, my grandma's dog.  Nora was also obsessed with eating the pine needles.  

We hope you had a wonderful, blessed holiday!
