Norah at 3

My sweet NorNor,

Yet another year has gone by and now you are 3 years old! There are not enough words to describe how much you’ve grown in the past year.

You’re fiercely independent and yet still so loving of your family, you definitely do things on your terms. Dad and I have nicknamed you the “Honey Badger” because you do what you want! (To a certain extent, at least!) You’re tough as nails and not much slows you down. The zest you have for life is unbelievable and I can’t help but admire it!


You still love animals immensely and want to make friends with every creature you encounter, from chipmunks to cows. Campbell is one of your best buds and you fondly refer to him as your “Horsey.”

As much as you and your sister fight and argue, your love for one another is still truly amazing. You hurt your hand not too long ago and you asked for Isla to hold your hand while I put your bandages on. For the most part, you really do get along so well and I hope you both continue to have this close bond as you grow up.

Dad is one of your favourite people and you love it when he does your bedtime stories with you. I can tell by the way he looks at you that he loves you immensely; you’re “his people”, as he so frequently states, and I don’t disagree!


While you’re not picky at all, your favourite foods would have to be Mini Wheat cereal, yogurt, pasta, and steak. You’re slowly warming up to the idea of liking broccoli, but like your sister, you’re not crazy about bell peppers and mushrooms.

You always ask to watch the movie “Cars” but I think your favourite at the moment would have to be The Angry Birds Movie.

Norah, you put my patience to the test on a daily basis but I wouldn’t have it any other way. You are the sweetest little person and I’m so thankful to be your mom.

Happy Birthday, Norah!

Love always,
