How is it that you’re 2-years old already? There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe how amazing it is to watch you grow. You go a million miles a minute and definitely keep your dad and I on our toes!
In the past year you’ve grown so much and have such a wonderful personality! If we could only use one word to describe you, I think dad and I would agree that the word would be “haywire,” and we say that with love. You love to get busy and are always pushing the boundaries to see what you can and cannot do. It doesn’t matter if you’re too little for something, you’re going to try and do it anyway! You love to explore and try new things; you’re always keeping dad and I on our toes, like the time you let yourself outside into the yard to play with Campbell, or when you stuck pieces of cork up your nose … Ask dad or I for the whole story one day!
You absolutely love animals and show no fear when meeting new ones. You’ve even said “Hi” to a couple houseflies and got upset when they flew away. You adore Campbell and love to feed and play with him. (He loves it when you do as well!)
While you love hanging out with your big sister, you’re definitely your own person! While she loves to sing and dance, you love to run around, toss balls and swing bats. I think we might have a future athlete on our hands if that’s the path you choose to take. Differing interests aside, you absolutely adore Isla and I love watching the two of play together. I know it won’t be like this all the time but I hope you keep this amazing bond with her.
Your favourite foods are bananas, crackers and chicken and you definitely do not like broccoli. You love watching the movie “The Secret Life of Pets” and ask for it on a daily basis, and you love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse as well.
You are most definitely Daddy’s Girl and my heart just melts watching you and him play together. He’s so proud of everything you do and I know he loves you so, so much.
I love you, my Norah, with all my heart and I’m so proud to be your mom. I cannot wait to see what the next year brings your way. Happy Birthday!
