Happy Birthday Norah!

It's hard to believe that August 10th is Norah's 1st birthday: Every cliche that people tell you about the time flying is true -- it goes way too fast, so it's tough to believe that it's already been a year. A year ago, I had a small baby who seemed to be no bigger than a loaf of bread; today, I have a walking, talking toddler who is pushing her own "babies" around in a stroller! In this sense, I can't help but think: Can it be possible that it's only been a year?

I mean, look at how much she's changed and grown:

Birth
1 month
2 months

3 months
4 months
5 months
6 months
7 months
8 months
9 months
10 months
11 months
12 months
But, I have to say that the other cliches are true too: Having a child is one of life's greatest joys and this has certainly been a wonderful year with Norah. She's such a sweet, easy-going girl, and it has been so fun to watch her grow, develop, explore and discover her world.

Of course, parenting is not all joyful. At times, it has been challenging, difficult, tedious, and frustrating, but in all ways, having her in my life has made my existence richer and more fulfilling. Sure, she's pooped on me, puked on me, sneezed in my face, made a mess of my house, put a dent in our bank accounts, and woken us up at all sorts of terrible hours of the night, but when she laughs or gives me a hug or one of her trademark wet kisses, all of those small difficulties become meaningless. And even though I know there are lots more challenges ahead of us, I look forward to the years we have in front of us, and I can't wait to see what kind of person she'll become.

So, happy birthday Norah! I love you very much!

Happy Birthday to Norah. I can't believe it's been a year already. She's still quite the cutie, and I'm sure will bring plenty more joy (and a bit more poop).

Happy Birthday Norah and Congrats to Jess and Jerry for surviving the first year of parenthood! We are proud of all the accomplishments Norah has achieved and what a bundle of joy she is. We look forward to sharing many more fun moments with her.

PS-I wrote a nice sappy post this morning but alas...I was logged in under Ryan's account and lost the post when I went to change it.
