I’m working on catching up on posts recapping our vacation to Mexico, but in the meantime, I wanted to get these photos up from a little 4th of July photo shoot I did with Nora. The light was so nice in the evening, and it was beautiful out. The weather seemed even more perfect in comparison to the over-the-top humidity we had grown accustomed to in Mexico!
Here are some of my favorites with Nora in her red, white, and blue!
These days, taking photos of Nora is nearly impossible if she doesn’t have something to play with. In this case, she *insisted* on holding my keys. Every time I tried to take them away from her to snap a few shots, she cried. Oh well.
Then, her “toy” of choice was my lens cap. Whatever works, right?
After being close for a few weeks now, Nora officially learned to clap today. Now her hands make the clapping noise and everything. It is so adorable, I keep making her do it over and over again! (She claps on demand as long as you say, “Yayyy!”)
I kept noticing on vacation how long her eyelashes have gotten. Beautiful. Love her pouty little lips, too.
In other news, Nora learned another trick today, too. We went into her room to get her up from her afternoon nap to find her like this:
Sitting up in her crib! Which is certainly not how we left her. She figured out how to sit up from a lying down position, which she has never done before. She is changing so much every day!
Happy 4th of July, everyone! I hope you enjoyed your holiday.
Stay tuned for more posts from our vacation. For those who read through Google Reader or a feed, you won’t have any issues. For those who come to the blog, I’ll pin a post to the top of the page to let you know when I’ve updated below. :)
