Nora in her birthday rainbow dress
(this post is late, but mommy running a bit behind, sorry)

Nora you are 3! On one level I can't believe you are already 3 because time has flown by. On another level I can't believe you are only 3 because you grew up a lot in year 2 and you act so much older (for better or worse :)

At your well child appointment you were 30 lbs (50%) and 36.5 inches (27%).

You eat well and will at least try everything...except milk.

You are a social butterfly! You make a friend where ever we go. You also rely on your brother for companionship. He may not always want to talk as much as you but you are certainly best of friends.

You are a talker. In the car you talk non-stop. If a person will not engage in conversation with you you are always up for talking to your stuffed animals.

You have a great imagination. You are so adamant about your stories I often can't tell if they are true or make believe.

You love to color. You are getting pretty good at staying in the lines.
you are in a phase where you will pose for pictures, but refuse to look at the camera for more than .0000245 seconds
You are left handed. We never taught you to write, but you instinctively pick up crayons in the proper way with your left hand.

You love clothes. You change outfits all the time and you are good at choosing tops and bottoms that match.

You consistently put your shoes on the wrong feet.

You are a daddy's girl through and through. This also applies to Papa's. You can't get enough of the men in your life. However, you are very timid around men or boys who are strangers.

Buzz Lightyear and Jessie are still your favorite toys, but Doc McStuffins is a close 2nd.

You love to have your nails painted.

You are an early bird! You are consistently the 1st person out of bed every morning (typically around 6:30 am).

You love your stuffed animals. Buzz and Jessie are still your favorites. Though you have at least 15 animals in bed with you every night. And even in the pitch black of night you know if one is missing.

Your typical schedule is awake at 6:30 am, eat breakfast, play, eat lunch, nap 1-3:30 pm, play, eat supper,  play, in bed at 8:30 pm.

You are a little spit fire. You don't let that older brother of yours push you around.

If you see a piece of clothing you like you will run to that person, stroke their clothes and tell them how beautiful they are.

Your favorite colors are pink and purple.

You love to color and paint.

Your favorite shows are Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First.

We also had one more birthday celebration for Nora. When we returned home from vacation we celebrated with Uncle Cliff and Aunt Jess.

She was excited about her Frozen movie
She was jumping for joy about her Sofia the First gifts
and she loved her new doll house so much she gave it a hug

  1. Happy Birthday, sweet Nora! LOVE the dollhouse. The past post just shows the amazing gifts that God has given you - such talent and creativity. Like you said, if only there were a job out there for professional dollhouse outfitters. :)
