Sorry for not updating sooner. Over Christmas we - or rather, "I" misplaced (not lost) the battery charger for the digital camera and we have not been able to use it for a month now. Just this week we got to download the photos we took by using a borrowed card reader. I will work hard over the next few days to update Nora's page with new photos! Don't know when we will get to take any more photos as our camera and all of it's replacement parts are discontinued. It's 4 years old.... perhaps we will buy a new camera for our 8th anniversary?

So much is happening with Nora, it's hard to know where to start so I will just start with most recent and when I think of the other I will come back and post with a backdate... Today she had her fist official "FIT"!!!

Nora and I were at daily mass. She was playing with my sunglasses during the homily and gagged herself so when I tried to help her out by taking them out of her hands she screamed - so upset with me. I gave them back to her as my first reaction to get her to stop with her worked..but she gagged herself again so I took them away. She threw her weight back with all her might and screamed. I quickly gathered up my jacket and her blanket and headed for the cry room. She cried the whole way. Since we have been attending daily mass, this was our first time to go to the cry room.

Nora has been eating a variety of baby foods and is now on the Stage 2 foods which has a much larger of variety. So far we have yet to find any fruit that she likes. She has turned down Applesauce, bannas, peaches, and apricots! Doesn't like any of them. I have even tried mixing the fruit with her cereal and that doesn't work.

Good thing is - that she loves vegetables! Except peas that is - which is so unlike her mother. Nora's favorites are Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Spinish, Green Beans and Carrots.

On Friday, January 21st the youth traveled by bus with several members of the CSRA Catholic Pro-Life Council. We got an early start as the 45 of us loaded the bus and left the church parking lot around 7 a.m. It was an eventful day. “Together For Life 2005" was the day’s theme sponsored by the Georgia Right to Life.

On the drive up, we together prayed a pro-life rosary on the bus before arriving at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to celebrate Mass for the unborn with the new Archbishop, Most Reverend, Wilton Gregory. Who before walking in during the opening hymn, reached over and gave Nora a BLESSING! :)

From the Shrine, we walked up to the state capitol where we joined thousands of other pro-life supporters. Following praise and worship songs from the steps of the capital, we heard from many legislators, religious leaders, and other concerned citizens. We also heard about new legislation that is in the Georgia Congress.

Former Governor Zell Miller was scheduled to speak but was unable to be there because of obligations to president George W. Bush. Before the 1-mile silent memorial walk through downtown Atlanta, Father Regan joined up with us and gave our youth group a special blessing.

We then marched with many other pro-life supporters through the streets of downtown Atlanta. Many of the youth carried large crosses, provided by the CSRA Catholic Pro-Life Council, to show their support. It was a great day and our youth made a great statement about being pro-life.

I am so greatful that David and I are active in teh pro-life movement. :)
