We both know them all too well.
If there's a Book of Jubilations,
We'll have to write it for ourselves.."

1. Is she safe?
2. Is she happy?
I went with 1. Yes and 2. Yes, yes, oh my god, yes.
You be the judge. Notice that both she and the camera lens get progressively wetter as time goes on.

Sadly, my embittered state has precluded such frivolous pursuits as recording the development of Nora as a person or us as a family. So, I broke out the old camera the other day. These are what I came up with. They'll have to do.

Seriously. They're self-entertaining, now. Anything else I attempt (manners, arithmatic, toilet training) will only spoil the perfect symmetry. Therefore, we have resolved to cease all parenting efforts now and I have requested that Nora refrain from acheiving any further developmental milestones. She's cool with it.
Suma, for her part, has already proven that she's not going to grow up.
And P.S.- Nora is clearly feeling better. Apparently, Mom being snide about your energy level on the internet is therapeutic somehow.

And so it has gone for the last three days, so when Nora actually decided to eat, who was I to argue? Yeah, I'm rationalizing, but I have to do it to avoid feeling like a terrible parent for allowing this to happen:
That is, in fact, hummus. And she is, in fact eating it out of the container with her fingers. I'm totally going to have to throw that pillow away, too.
Let's reminisce, shall we? I long for the days when my daughter enjoyed being upright and talking- sometimes at the same time! Please note the distinct lack of tears (mine or Nora's) in this video. I miss that.
