Nora: Age 4

Although she swears she's still three until she blows out her candles, today is Nora's birthday!

Four years ago this tiny girl came into our lives and changed everything. She definitely proved to us that six years worth of parenting boys did not make us experts and continues to surprise us with new lessons. Nora's personality is as wild as her curls. We had no idea what we were getting into when the doctor handed us a sweet bundle with a bow on top.

I've loved watching the evolution of Nora for the four years she's graced us all with her presence. She proves she's no baby every day, whether it's fearlessly shooting down the big slide at the water park or attempting to write her name on everything. She marches headfirst into new experiences... just as long as a brother or parent is close behind. While she loves being fiercely independent {maybe even to a fault}, she's yet to turn down a snuggle. Nora encourages me to be braver and go for what I want.

Even though what I want and what she wants differs greatly half the time.

I am so proud of the kid Nora is becoming and the personality I see more and more every day. Today we will have a party themed around Moana, another of my favorite headstrong warriors, but for now, let's take a peek into Nora's mind. Here's what she had to say when I sat her down for a birthday interview...
