2 years old

How is my littlest little 2 years old already?!? It literally feels like she was born, I blinked and suddenly she was 2!

Height : 33 ins (40th percentile)

Weight: 23 lbs (7th percentile)

Head Circumference: 19 ins (70th percentile)

Last week Nora had her 2 year well child check up at the doctor. To say she was not a fan would be a total understatement. She cried from the moment we walked through the door. She wanted nothing to do with getting weighed, measured, poked or prodded and refused to answer 90% of the doctors questions. The needles were actually the least challenging thing at the appointment. She barely flinched when she got stuck with the needle but man trying to get her to let the doctor listen to her heart or look in her ears was like wrestling a gorilla. All my kids have hated the doctor at this age so I was prepared for a challenging appointment. Once the doctor was able to finally get a decent look at her she declared her to be the picture of health, although did say she could stand to put on a little bit of weight. Her development is right on track or ahead of the curve and she is healthy.

What can I say about Nora at two? She is a delight and a handful all rolled into one. She is a curious, friendly little daredevil. Her smile lights up a room. She isn’t afraid of anything. I love watching kids this age explore they are so curious and just take it all in.

Her goal in life is to keep up, or surpass, her sisters at everything. She is super loving and affectionate. She loves to snuggle and her favorite thing to play with are her baby dolls. She mothers them so well. It is quite possibly the most adorable thing to watch her rock her baby and say “You oh hay baby”, so stinkin’ cute! We have about 5 or 6 dolls and she loves each of them to pieces on a daily basis. When she isn’t playing mommy to her babies she is search the sky for airplanes, scaling any surface in our house she can, or “reading” books.

Her vocabulary is growing like crazy! I think she learns at least one new word a day right now. Even Anna will notice new words and will say “That is a new word for you, Nora. Good job!” The girls love their baby sister.

We love you to pieces sweet girl and can’t wait to see you’ll do next!

Happy 2nd Birthday sweet baby girl!

 

I cannot believe that you are already 2 years old. It feels like just yesterday that I was holding this itty bitty bundle of cuteness for the first time.

It is amazing how you have grown and changed over the last 2 years. I have loved watching it all happen. You are the sweetest little thing and have been from the moment you entered this world. You are funny, and love when you can make people laugh. You love snuggles and will come up for hugs randomly throughout the day. You are so smart, talking in complete little sentences, naming off colors left and right and even identifying several letters in the alphabet. You have always loved quietly taking in the world around you and you absorb and learn so much, so quickly that way. There is so much rolled into such a little package.

We love you to pieces sweet baby girl and have so enjoyed the last 2 years with you. We can’t wait to see what the future hold for you. Happy Birthday!!
