We're not doing a big celebration...just cupcakes (which have yet to be baked) when daddy gets home from work. But I did make a costume for my little superhero so I could make this trading card to commemorate the day:)
She's a feisty little girl, as was foreshadowed by her precipitous birth. You can read the story here if you're into that kind of thing. If not, the short version is that she went into stealth-labor mode and she's very lucky she wasn't born at my in-laws' house with only her big (19-month old) brother to catch her. That day was crazy, in the best possible sense of the word.
So, in honor of her birthday, here are my five favorite things about my best girl:
Her NicknameThis girl has the most names of anyone I know. There is one name on her birth certificate, a shortened version that was supposed to be her official nickname. Then CJ met her and insisted that her name was "Noni. One year later and it's still going strong.
Her Sleeping Skills
I don't want to get into specifics lest I jinx myself, but let's just say that I get a pretty decent break from her aforementioned feistiness due to sleep.
I stashed CJ in a shipping box with some crayons so he could write on walls to his heart's content. Of course Noni wanted to join the fun. Don't tell her that her crayon is actually a spoon!
This girl is amazing. She may be infuriatingly clingy and insufferably loud at the moment, but she's got all the makings of a storybook heroine. She's going places, and I hope she takes me with her!
Linking up with Hallie, who I hope is busy planning a conference right now:)
Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Hope to see you there! Especially on Instagram. I love Instagram.
