A Reunion

Recently Nora and Tessa met their great-grandmother, my Granny Cozine.  N & T are the first generation of the great-grandchildren on my maternal side of the family and so it was a really special treat for them to meet their Great-Granny and all their great-aunts


We had so much fun “talking” to everyone and showing off our smiles!


Hey! Aunt Joyce was so much fun!


We had so much fun playing with our family!


We hope they come again soon! 

The look…

I’m not sure what to call it, but when people ask me about the distinct personality traits of the girls, one of the things I bring up about Nora is “the look”. Often, she’ll give you a good look while her head is pointed downward. She knows what you’re up to….



I love this trait in her. It’s so cute!

And…THEY’RE OFF (almost)!

It’s a race to find out who will crawl first!  Tessa really seems to have the logistics down–pulling with her arms and alternating pushing with her legs.  But it is sweet little Nora that really has a fire in her eyes to TAKE OFF.  However, the coordination for Nora’s “crawl” looks more like a skydive. 


Happy (1/2) Birthday!

Welcome to our blog. We’re Nora and Tessa, and we’ve decided that we want to share some daily adventures with family and friends.

Today we’re six months old. It was one year ago today that mom and dad sent a valentine to their family announcing our arrival-to-be.

Baby Valentine 2006

What an adventure it’s been for them! And for us, too.

We’ve grown so much in the past six months. Just the other day we got our offical weigh-in: Nora registers at 19 pounds; Tessa at 19 pounds, 11 ounces. We’re big, healthy, happy baby girls! Mom and dad are so proud.

Check in several times a week as they post pictures of us and our daily adventures.
