Nora Lu

One year ago today, my sister Sheri called me and said, “Dude, I just gave birth.”

Now, one year later, she and my brother-in-law have the cutest little one-year-old daughter. Nora Lu is her parents’ pride and joy—and honestly, my pride and joy, too! You see, Sheri and I are only two years apart, and we shared a room together and spent tons of time together as kids…so when she had a baby, it was a huge deal to me. And I am just crazy about my little niecey Nora.

The few precious times I’ve gotten to spend some time with Nora Lu Lu, I have found her to be the sweetest, most darling little thing who smiles and laughs readily. She is just one happy baby. And it’s no wonder why—she has two wonderful parents who give her tons of love and attention.

And I may be a bit biased, but I really do think that she is the cutest baby ever! Here, look at her picture—don’t you agree?



And now, my sister tells me, Nora is starting to walk and talk. Wow, they grow up so fast! I can’t wait to see her again and listen to her say her favorite words: “moo,” “cheep cheep,” and “baby.”

I just can’t believe she’s already one year old. Wow. One year old. Who the heck remembers being one??

Nora Lu, I know you can’t read yet—but I hope you know that your Auntie Carly loves you very much.

Happy First Birthday, Nora Lu!

Nora is so dang cute! I bet she is going to have her Auntie Carla's bubbly personality too! Wait until she turns three, that is my favorite age of a child! They say and do the most adorable things!

Soon she will be fourteen and will call her Aunty Carly up, crying, saying how awful her parents are for not letting her go to the boy-band concert. You will be such a good aunt.

What a nice tribute, Auntie Carly! Thank you!! :) And Buck, don't remind me that someday (sooner than I care to admit) she'll be fourteen. YIKES!!

Thanks to everyone for your nice comments! Except for Sfoofie, who let the "cowapin" out of the bag! LOL! Diane, neither of you are really allowed to call me that! *hee hee*

Boskey, it's a long story. Maybe someday I'll get drunk enough to tell you. *hee hee*

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it might not
be a taboo matter but typically people do not speak about these subjects.
To the next! All the best!!
