Nora how old are you? “Um, Big 2.” How old is Daddy? “Um, Big 2.” And Mommy? “Big 1!”


Somebody found a few new things to play with.

Aw, a polar bear. I want to hold it!

Nora during school

I am really enjoying watching Nora applying her language skills to different scenarios in the classroom. She is really able to talk through things with other children and also have her needs known. It is wonderful!

Doc Old MacDonald downgraded Nora from Goose egg to Quail egg.

When she was working with the wood polishing, there is a cotton ball that goes along with the work and I looked over and she was rubbing it on her nails and she told me she was taking her polish off! She is quite a character!

Nora had a big Girl day today.  She went #2 in the potty finally!  I’m so glad her school has been working with her since day 1.  This has made our potty training much easier.

Today, she wanted to watch Daddy go potty.  I don’t know if it scarred her motivated her, but she did it herself today.
