The Daughter Chronicles

A bonanza of photographs

We got a roll of film developed over the weekend, and you get to share in the benefits! Aren't you lucky? I like to post pictures often, because at this age, kids change a lot, and it's interesting to see them grow. So we're off!

This first picture is just Mia hanging out on the sofa. She's sitting a lot better, even though she has support here. In the olden days she would just flop over. Now she actually sits there for a while.

Norah here hangs out in her swing. We got it because we thought she would like it and maybe nap in it. She kind of digs it, but rarely falls asleep in it. Oh well. It still keeps her happy for some periods of time.

No wonder Norah is a Demon Child. Her mommy is a Demon Mommy! Run from the demons!

I love this picture. When Mia eats and Norah is sitting next to her, Norah just stares up at her in worshipful admiration. We're not quite sure why Mia eating is so fascinating, but it keeps Norah happy.

Mia is performing some mischief here. Krys opened the drawer for her and she proceeded to pull out all the clothes and fling them around. Most parents would be a little peeved by their children getting into such mischief. We probably would be too, but it's a "normal" activity for a kid, so we encourage it. We've been happy with her progress in her gait trainer, because she can get around the house with only a little bit of help. When she walks around the house, we want to promote normal three-year-old activity, part of which includes flinging clothing. Parents of disabled children - adjusting your expectations is key!

This is Norah in her gymini, which the kids' aunt bought for Mia a long while ago. Both kids have enjoyed it. Usually the pictures we take of them in it come out blurry, so I like this one.

The disembodied arm feeds solid foods to Norah, and Norah expresses her disapproval. She has since seen the goodness of solid foods, which is nice.

After a tough day out and about in her car seat, there's really nothing better than sacking out. Such a hard life for the baby!

For the past ten days, Krys's grandmother has been visiting. She just left this morning. It was very nice to have her here for Thanksgiving, and of course she was ecstatic to see the kids. Mia was her usual cheery self around her, and Norah found her extremely fascinating. Whenever Josephine spoke, Norah was riveted on her. It was quite amusing. Here they are together.

Norah checks out the high chair and thinks, "Hey, this is pretty cool. I can sure see a lot more from up here!"

I ask you: who really needs the nap in this picture?

This is Norah at five months, but the reason I posted it is because she's smiling. That's an event. Usually in pictures she's working the whole dazed and confused vibe. I think she was smiling here because she wasn't actually looking at the camera. Whatever. I'll take it.

Finally, we have the ladies ready for Thanksgiving dinner. Another event - both kids are actually looking at the camera! Mia has less of an evil smile than in some other pictures (like in this one) and although Norah's not smiling, at least she's not crying. What a nice family I'm part of.

I hope everyone enjoys the pictures. As usual, you shouldn't feel bad that your kids aren't as beautiful as mine. It's just the way it is!

  • I love the pic of Norah with great-gramma...

    And the pics are wonderful!

    It was so much more important to check your blog than continue with my monotonous, horrible work.

  • Actually, Mia opened that drawer herself--which was even cooler. She figured it out on her own.
