In other, marginally related news, this door represents the completion of this house. The room Nora is standing was the last one. Every wall is painted. Every door is hung. Every floor covering has been replaced. Every appliance has been updated. Quick! Sell the money trap before anything else can fall off!
Anyone who has spent time with me or my brother (or God helps you, us together) had to know that this costume was inevitable. I just had to do it when my child, now renamed the Bonny Cap'n Morgan, was too young to fight back. In my defense, she loves the hat.
'Tis better to not ask about the antacids. Just a warning. Avast! On to the lame pirate jokes, me hearties.
Yar! If anyone comes in the front door, they'll be checkin' out me booty!

So, after we got home from daycare tonight, Nora found Eric's iPod and started pushing buttons. I have many videos of her dancing to "Mana Mana." Unfortunately, the files are enormous. Instead, please enjoy this video of Nora dancing to the next best thing. Which apparently is always Vampire Weekend. Ah, my little hipster....
Notice the coordination she received in spades from her mother. And the actual, real, not sarcastic rhythm that she received from, ummmm, someone. I honestly can't say if Eric can dance. I suspect not.

And in related news, Nora only had red eye in one eye in this picture. My motherly inclination is to get her honky butt to the eye doctor. Then, my doctorly side kicks in and tells me to get a freaking life. Anyone care to comment on her light reflex, symmetric or otherwise?
