Thank goodness Angie uploads her photos like a responsible parent. Here are some photos from their trip to Utah, and there are a few in there of Nora and Hazel in Spring City, visiting the chickens and playing in the kiddie pool.
It’s a bit long, but here’s proof that Hazel can actually walk (when she doesn’t want to put down what she’s holding). She came all the way down the hall from her room before I bothered to get up and get the camera, too, so there was more. If you stick around to the very end there’s also proof that she can hear! Turns out she’s probably just ignoring you, so that’s awkward.
I dropped my phone under my chair without realizing it, and five minutes later I whined, “I lost my phone. MUUUUUHHHHH.” Nora piped up from across the room, in the most sympathetic tone, “Are you feeling in a bad mood? That’s how I feel when I’m feeling in a bad mood. I know what you’re talkin’ about.”
I recounted this story to Sarah, and I never want to forget what she said. “Lisa. You made a little friend from scratch. That is kind of the most awesome thing.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Pop-pop spun Hazel around in a bowl for a while at the cabin. Those gentle “whee” noises are the sound of Hazel having an awesome time, trust me.
I’m not sure if Hazel has to go under the ottoman to rescue her wagon, or if she purposely pushes the wagon under there to have an excuse to follow it.
Nora experiences her first measurable case of school spirit.
Nora’s team didn’t win the superbowl, but her cheerleading is still pretty cute.
Hazel has been using her shopping cart as a walker to get herself all over the house. Now Nora crawls in to give her a hand.
And then Nora and Hazel take their act up a notch.
Hazel tries out the rocking chair at the Farmhouse.
