Norah's getting strange before bed

Two consecutive nights Norah has started some strange behavior before bed time, maybe this is the shape of things to come.

11/17/10 - Norah came up with this pacifier hiding game

11/18/10 - Norah turned into an elephant or a trumpet player.

Hope you enjoy,

Maui Baby

*10 minutes before I finished this post Norah turned off the computer, mid keystroke! So it took a LOT to finally get this posted!!!*

I have seriously started this post 3 or 4 times in the last few weeks but technical difficulties, mommy duties and pure exhaustion have kept me from finishing it. It's not perfect, it's not beautifully laid out but I wanted to share some fun pictures from Norah's first vacation and her second trip to Maui! Photos from her first trip here.

At the Maui Ocean Center with Mom. She was so enthralled by this place, it was so much fun to see her experience something so new.

Waving to Dad while he goes snorkeling. This is at north Kaanapali beach RIGHT in front of the resort we stayed at. It was so perfect and beautiful.

Norah's first time in a hammock, I think she liked it.

Sweet little chubby cheeks :)

Hallway cruising with Daddy! Whee!!!!!!

Waving bye bye to the sun after a beautiful day

We have been so busy lately, hence the lack of posting! Here is what we have been up to:

Playgroup trip to the pool! Norah, Kayleigh and Lana

Swingin' with Daddy :)

And here are her 8 month photos that I totally slacked on posting, it's getting harder and harder to get her to hold still for photos!!

And her 9 month photos! She is getting SO big!

19lb 10oz
28.5 inches long
She's crawling and cruising and getting into all sorts of things, she has 5 teeth and is working on #6! She is a delightful and joyful little girl and we are having so much fun watching her grow up.

This photo made me laugh, she was eating rose petals....crazy baby!

Norah Learned to Wave Today!!

Please help out any way you can

My brother, Brent Slowik, had a mental illness called Paranoid Schizophrenia - "one of several types of schizophrenia, a chronic mental illness in which reality is interpreted abnormally. The classic features of paranoid schizophrenia are having beliefs that have no basis in reality and hearing things that aren't real."

Unfortunately in my brother's case this disease took his life by suicide.

While it's too late to save Brent, you have the opportunity to help others like Brent who suffer from various mental illness diseases. I have started a team to walk at this years NAMI Northwest Walk by visiting this link you can donate to my team.

Thanks so much for your time.

Slowik Family Photo Shoot-Preview

Monday, April 26, 2010


Hey everyone, I have been thinking it's been a while since we've posted anything other than photos and captions, so here's a Slowik family update!

Our sweet little Norah is growing like a weed, weighing in at 16lbs 12oz (74%) and 27in (93%) at her 6 month doctor visit. She is sitting up independently, 'talking' to us more often, scooting backwards and inching forwards so almost crawling and is really getting into her toys! It's so fun to watch her discover new things. She is also eating oatmeal and veggies or fruit after her evening nursing every day now and she is loving it! She makes a giant mess and seems to be enjoying the new tastes. So far her favorites are sweet potatoes, squash, apples and bananas. We had her 6 month photos taken at Cooper Mountain Nature Park last Sunday, so those should be up on the blog within a couple of weeks. She's also gearing up to go to her first swim class. Lots of photo ops headed this way. Stay tuned :)

We have a HOA in our neighborhood that is supposed to do all of our front lawn maintenance but they have been doing a TERRIBLE job! A minor facelift is in progress, I'll post more pics when it's done, here's what we have right now, with the cutest little lawn ornament you've ever seen.

Chris is still working at the lab, nothing new there, and I'm still working in maternity at the hospital, night shift. It's going so well and I am learning something new pretty much every time I work so it's always exciting and never boring. We aren't quite yet in our busy season so I've been getting days off here and there so I'm only working 2 nights most weeks instead of 3, it's a welcome break before the madness of the summer season sets in :)

We've been cheering for the Trailblazers, who are in the playoffs again this year. Here is a sweet little pic of their most adorable little fan!

So I think that's it for now, hope you enjoyed the update and hopefully I will be posting more content along with the pictures :) Hope everyone is having a great week!

Norah gets her ears pierced

I know EVERYONE has an opinion on piercing an infants ears but after doing much research and discussing it with our pediatrician we decided to have Norah's ears pierced. Dr Thomas recommended Nomad piercing, and we are so glad he did! Blake at Nomad is an expert in his field and takes piercing, especially for a baby, very seriously. Everything was sterile, and he took his time to get it just perfect. We did NOT want to take her to the mall and have some 18 year old with an unsterile gun shove a stud that is no better for piercing than a thumb tack through our precious daughter's ear. She has cute little hoops that are made of implant grade steel that allow for the inevitable swelling and carry no risk of getting embedded in her adorable little earlobe.

Marking the spot.....

She cried for just a minute, and soon was back to her happy self!

Ta Da!
