Yesterday, out of boredom, I decided to give Nora a bath on her own in the tub. This doesn't seem so out of the ordinary, but it is actually a rare occurrence in this household. Not to imply that we have a dirty baby, by any means, but I usually just take her in the shower with me. It's quick and easy, and saves water, too. Yesterday, however, I thought Nora deserved the pleasure of a nice warm bath. (Okay, and yes, it had been awhile since her last shower.)
As soon as I began drawing the bath water her ears perked. She hitched herself over to the edge of the tub and proceeded to thoroughly impress me. Case in point:

I couldn't have been more proud. Of course, as soon as she noticed me she immediately fell on her bottom, leaned back and whacked her head on the scale in the background. That will teach me to stop fiddling with the camera during important moments such as this one...

For all the Nora-obsessed fans out there, one more picture of her bath time fun:

And finally, a quick note to my newly tech-savvy Dad (and everyone else who is fed up with the cold, snow and plowing costs), spring and summer are coming, I promise, and when they arrive it will be wonderful.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

I love this blog!! It's so fun to read. Mom informed me that this has been dads incentive to actually get on the computer. =] I think those pictures were probably taken right before I called you and heard Nora in the background wispering "dadadadada" It was SO cute!
