mothers day

dear nora,
we celebrated my second mothers day yesterday and it was a wonderful day.  i am so lucky that i get to be celebrated this day because of YOU.  i love that you get to call me "mommy".  there's nothing i love to hear more than your sweet sweet voice saying, "mommy". 

being a mom is one of the greatest jobs in the world. it is hard and difficult at times, but oh so rewarding all the time.  

saturday we had your first gymnastics ('mastics') class and to say you loved it would be an understatement.  you were so incredibly happy to be running around and exploring all the gymnastics equipment.  we learned how to do summersaults and all of a sudden, you're doing them on your own!  how neat to watch you learn something so quickly :) 

walking on the beam at gymnastics

hanging with papa, oliver & uncle kyle :) 

sunday we celebrated mother's day with grandma and papa (and uncle kyle, too!) with brunch downtown.  you love going out to eat, but only for a short time.  you ate like a champ, but wanted to walk around the crowded restaurant the whole time.  papa says, "no no nora!" :) 
selfies with mommy :)

your silly faces :) 

my "three" favorite girls :)  
my beautiful mom & daughters

then we came home for what i was hoping would be nap time, but you had other plans :) good thing your daddy hung out with you while i closed my eyes for a few minute!  

then we headed over to gigi's to spend mothers day with her!  you LOVE playing with uncle mike and jimmy, especially when they play games like peek-a-boo and chase you around the kitchen.  at both of your grandma's houses, you know where they keep the "nora food" and go straight for their cabinets with cheerios (go-gos) and crackers.  

our home is very colorful these days with all the flowers around!! your dad, papa, and uncles all bought me flowers for mother's day!  i feel so special when they do things like that :) you point to every flower arrangement and say "flowers. pretty!" 

i feel so honored to be your mommy.  thank you for being my baby girl!
