Ida Rue

Ida Rue has arrived and she is perfect!  She was born on September 15th, which I predicted almost immediately after I found out I was pregnant (it's also my brother's birthday).  She came in at 6lb 11oz and almost 20" long.  I was shocked at how tiny she was, but seriously guys... She is perfect! She's been here almost a week, nursing really well, and sleeping basically 24/7.  She only wakes up to nurse and play with Daddy.  She also loves to cuddle with Cora, who takes her job as big sister very seriously.  We could not be more in love!!!  I'll be back soon to share her birth story, more pics (not of the birth), and what else we've been up to.


Conversations With Cora : Part III

Cora is pretty funny and her comedic timing is pretty spot on and she makes me laugh hysterically at least once a day.  I wish I could remember everything she says, but this is the best I could manage lately.

"I want to be President!  and a Firefighter... and I want a phone... in a box!"

"When I grow up, I want to be a toothbrush."

When talking about going back to school "Everyone wants to play with me"

On her way to school, she told ben that she was going to find a boyfriend this year.

Favorite part of her first day:  "Peepeeing at school"

When our air conditioner went out during a super hot week:

Small firework went off  "It was a TOOT!"

When trying to give us high fives "Cut the pickle!  Up High... Down Slow... Missed me."

"I lost Grandpa's whistle... Lets pray for it.  Thank you for my whistle.  Help us to find it. Amen!"

Sang a sharing song with Cora... she responded with "Share share share, that's not a good idea... Share share share, for kids only!!!"

PRURS = prayers

TEND = pretending

COCKAMOLE = quacamole

Cora: you can cuddle with Lambie
Me: okay, cause nobody is cuddling with me
Cora: Maybe you can cuddle yourself

Cora loves for me to tell her about our family members that are in Heaven and share what they were like  "Lets talk about dead people.  Who else is in Heaven?"

"Goodnight, don't let the bugs eat you!  Santa told me that... and Boppa told Santa"


The Forgotten Photo Shoot

I've been clearing up some pictures from my DSLR and found this little photo shoot I completely forgot about.  The week after this amazing golden hour moment from 2 years ago, we tried to get some pictures of Cora with the good camera.  I didn't really love any of the pictures, so I never put in the effort to pull them off my camera.  Funny how time changes things and now I'm in love with these pictures.  It is so fun seeing how little Cora was.  So two years later here they are:
