Let's face it, this is Norah's baby book (there is an actual book somewhere that I think contains one ultrasound picture-nothing else), so I figured there is no better place to document the little stuff I want to remember.
Whenever she falls, bonks, or otherwise injures herself she yells, 'Don't worry Mommy, Nanor is O-KAY!'
She is speeding towards potty training much faster than we are (ugh, diapers are so convenient! What do you do at the park with the nasty toilets when they have to go????). Before her bath every night she strips off her clothes, pulls of her diaper, announces, 'NANOR IS NAKED!' and then tears through the house. She does a couple of laps, runs into the bathroom, sits on the potty and continues to yell, 'NANOR IS PEEING.' She takes the reservoir out, dumps the pee in the big toilet and then climbs up on her stool to rinse it out in the sink. I am only so-so with being okay that she rinses it in the sink-I am just glad she has yet to poop in her potty....
When she does something like a puzzle by herself she claps her hands and says, 'Mommy, please look!'
When we are putting her pajamas on she picks the number of books to read before bed. Usually it is 5, sometimes 3. She then selects the correct number of books, always a different group. After the books are read she will sigh and say, 'Nanor sad, but no more!'
This morning she was hugging on Bear and I said, 'Norah, you give Bear the best hugs. I wish I got a hug like Bear.' She patted me on the arm and said, 'Mommy is big, Bear is little.' Then she laughed and gave me a huge hug.
She has started doing some imaginative play. She had her little dinosaur out the other day and she was having him 'march in trees and go on the swing.'
If you ask her what music she wants to listen to she will say 'Lady Gaga' or 'Cash.'
I thought of at least 10 more today and now they escape me. Ugh.
