It's been nine months since I've written about Nora. She turns two this month.

The last nine months have been uneventful, at least as it relates to seizures. Nora shed her orthodics and walks and runs and climbs stairs with reckless abandon. In fact, we call her Stitches after a trip to the ER in July.


Nora has done so well this year she 'graduated' from both occupational and physical therapy late in the year. She's still doing Speech Therapy weekly and is learning new words every day. Her favorite word right now is "NO."

She remains on Zonegram for seizure control, and has semiannual check-ins with Neurology and Opthamology. (UNC Hospitals and Durham Pediatrics continue to take exceptionally good care of our family.)

A few more things about Nora...

She started preschool in August and loves it.


She likes the Tar Heels.


And SnapChat.


And Hillary.
