I am amazed at just how smart Alora is. Just the other day, Alora came into the kitchen opened the cabinet under the sink and started pointing at the paper towels and saying, "Su, Su Mama, Su, su Mama." That means, I want that mama. So I gave her a napkin and she went running to her bedroom. Eric and her had been playing in there and so I thought that one of them had spilt something and Eric had sent her into the kitchen to get a paper towel. So I asked Eric why she needed the paper towel, and he said, "Oh she didn't, I think she just wanted to play with it." I said okay. A little while later Eric calls me from the kitchen and asks me to come to Alora's bedroom. When I walk in he holds up a paper towel and asks me to smell it, of course I said no because smells make me so nautious, especially this far along in pregnancy. Well he kept on insisting and so I broke down and smelled. He asked what it smelled like and I said "throw-up." We asked Alora if she had thrown-up, but she just looked at us like "what are you talking about," so we asked her if something had come out of her mouth, she shook her head yes, pointed down her throat and then to the floor. It was so cute to see her make those hand movements. Eric preceeded to tell me that he had noticed the paper towel in the floor and when he picked it up the vomit was under it. Alora had come and got the paper towel from me to clean her own vomit up. Everytime I think about this little story I get a certain little feeling as though she is growing up too fast. I wish I could just stop time and keep her this small forever. But I know I can't and that there are many more exciting memories that we will share ahead. Thank you Lord for blessing me with children. Amen!

Came across your blog because we also have a wonderful daughter named Alora. Born in April 2007, it is incredible that we found another baby named Alora and spelled the same way.
