Happy Birthday Norah!


In the eyes of a child there is joy, there is laughter 

There is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future 
For the lessons of life there is no better teacher 
Than the look in the eyes of a child 
Air Supply

Norah
(Latin) honored,  honorable ; (Old Greek) bright one, shining one ;
  an Irish name for Honora

Lessons we've learned from our two year old...

every day is better with 
a little ice cream and long nap

a sticky kiss is the best kiss

you're never too old for a good loud cry

the world is huge and amazing and ready to explore

bugs (and spiders and flowers 
and  butterflies ) are cool

if in doubt, put it in your mouth

to play is a childs work...and this one works overtime!

pop tarts and root beer and Dora
 and Grandpa make for a great breakfast

all the problems of the world can be
 solved with 30 minutes in a swing

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

(to those whose  birthday's I've missed in my blogging break
....I'll be catching up with you!)

A beautiful happy little girl and what a treasure to see things through her eyes. I have learned grown ups learn new ways to say things from their little ones and will forever describe it that way as long as they live. Our son when small pronounced that green peas were John Deere balls and yes that is how we refer to them today. Again glad to have you back in blog land. Peace
