Disneyland- Take 2

While we were in LA back in September we got to spend some time with Scott and Karisa and went to Disneyland with them for a day which was great fun. It was so fun to see Kale too--who is going to JAMAICA on his mission! Congrats!! I'm sure it will be a wonderful experience and we are so happy for him. Anyway, it was SO hot but Norah had a BLAST on the rides which made it such a fun day for us all.

Kale, Scott, Karisa, and us in California Adventure. We have such cute friends!

Norah loved the Moster's Inc. ride. It might look like she's petrified, but actually she had a blast. Jason and the rest of the gang rode the Tower of Terror a couple times, and since I was prego Norah and I rode this aboout 4 times in a row. It's so cute! "It's a small world" was actually her favorite ride, but this took a close 2nd.

Really attractive, I know. We had been warned that she would probably be frightened by the Bugs Life show/movie, but she actually did really well. I was another story....

This picture is priceless. Out of our entire Disneyland experience, guess what her favorite part was? The parade! She loved it so much that we kept running ahead so she could watch it over and over.

Our pretty girl.

Documentation of how hot it was. Notice the sweaty head.

So, Norah loved the electric parade...up until Pete's dragon rounded the corner. She got pretty freaked out. We should have been more concerned, but it was pretty commical. Especially considering I believe the girl in that movie is named Norah.

The Joys of Pregnancy

Out of the many fun and exciting things about being prego, my sleeping schedule is not one of them. Early on, I wake up 3 to 4 times a night to pee. And I mean really early on--like before I even know I'm pregnant. Why, you might ask, do I need to pee so frequently when there is barely a baby in there? Who in the world knows....

Now that I am nearing the end (due April 19th....less than 8 weeks away) things aren't any prettier. Tonight for example I woke up at 3:40, laid in bed wide awake until 5:15, and finally got up and decided to catch-up on my blog reading. There are only 2 benefits to this torture that I can see. First, at least it prepares you for when you are waking up every 2 hours to feed your precious little newborn. For the first few weeks after I had Norah I ironically felt MUCH more rested than I had in months. And second, maybe all of this middle of the night insomnia will give me some time to update our blog!

Well, sweet dreams for now...
