A little update :)

Norah is 2 weeks and 4 days old today!  Hard to believe that if all had went as planned, (scheduled c-section on Sept. 12th) that she would only be 3 days old today.  Just crazy to think about.  We have been adjusting to our new life at home and she has been doing great.  We have been enjoying these early days as we get to know each other and spend most of our days cuddling and taking in every precious moment.

Emotions have been running a little high as we can see so much of Harper in Norah and all of the things that we missed out on at this time last year are so much more apparent since Norah's arrival.  But she is such a light in our lives and we are so very blessed by her presence everyday.  Actually, the meaning of Norah is "the shining light".  Pretty fitting, huh?  That is why we picked her name, she is our light and our little blessing after a time of such darkness.  And of course, her middle name, Grace, is in honor of her big sister Harper.

Here are a few pictures from the last week :)


6 days old...bright eyes!


First real bath, 1 week and 2 days old!  She loves the warm water!


1 week and 3 days.  Isn't she a cutie?!? :)

Miss Norah is adorable! You sit there with her and I right am sitting here while Cameron has the hiccups and am counting down the hours til we meet her.

I know Harper is watching out for her little sister! I love the look on Norah's face during the bath! Too cute!
