The Last Is First

Nora got a lot of pictures of her taken today. She's back into realizing that if she just holds still and smiles, it's over faster.

But that's not what this is about.

This photo is one of her very first real conversation with Daddy on the phone. It involved her actually taking the phone OUT of my hands and yelling "HI! HI! HI!" into it as she heard his voice (he's out of town on business this week).

And when he talked to her, rather than just walk around pushing buttons until the call was lost, she ACTUALLY put the phone to her ear so she could hear his voice!

Just too cute.

Today was a big day spent in the yard...

We went to the store and bought sidewalk chalk, and spent a LOT of time playing with it, dropping it in the grass, putting it in (and out) and in again to the plastic holder...

And of course trying to eat it.

A tour of the yard shows everything that should and should NOT be up is growing and doing great...
Being that it was 80degrees here today, we grew EVERYTHING.
My favorite part though was digging out my REI tent and putting it up in the back yard, and finding a place for it where it wouldn't kill the grass, but where Nora could still play with it.

She took some animals in with her and of course, it has a few chalk marks...

But she thoroughly enjoyed her "outside fort". We have a date for tomorrow after my exam to play in it a LOT before the weather changes again on Wednesday!
