Loves music and dancing
She is interested in everything that mommy and daddy do. She does a lot of mimicking.
She is learning about obedience and having a good attitude.
She is learning to be thankful and polite.
She is learning about patience. (And I am getting a refresher in this course too!)
She is learning to use the potty!
Some of Norah Jayne's two year portraits that I shot the day before her birthday.
Just a few of Norah's favorite people...
I had to add this picture of Norah Jayne's hair. I have been itching to give her a little hair-do since she was a tiny little thing... she is just now getting enough hair for me to actually do something with.
Mommy is in heaven. ❤
The night before Norah's birthday, I decided that I would make a special birthday breakfast for her so that we could all eat together before daddy went to work.
To add to the festivities, I bought some balloons along with a card to surprise her.
That morning, I hurriedly made bacon and eggs, set the table, and set out the pre-made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.
Norah woke up and we took her to the living room. She immediately saw the balloons and was very excited by them! She said, "Oh my goodness!"
Such a flurry of activity in the morning is rather unusual for all of us, especially her.
We sat her in her chair and she opened her card all by herself! What a smart girl. :)
Then we began to sing "Happy Birthday;" the look on her face was priceless!
I was able to get one shot before she blew out the candles.
Later in the day, we went to eat lunch with daddy in the cafeteria. I took along the balloons, a cupcake and the two candles. The students sang to her and she really loved it!
She is definitely mommy's girl- the icing is the best part!
We plan on having a proper birthday party for her on the 27th. I am sure there will be more photos, more cake, more friends, and more singing...
We are enjoying our two year old. My, how time has flown!
