5 years ago I gave birth to the little beauty you see in the collage above. At 7lbs and 11oz, with blonde hair and blue eyes, I was blessed with the most incredible little girl. A little girl full of more personality than her little body should contain. She was born a performer. Pretending to sleep when she was just a few months old to dancing before she could run, to creating different characters that she becomes at any moment, to singing at the top of her lungs anytime a song is on. I will be very surprised if she doesn't pursue a career performing. Often times, she will come downstairs with different posture, a different voice and demanding we call her by the name of whatever character she has become. My favorite being Charley, the old man who walks with a cane and talks like he has no teeth. She will hunch her back like the Hunchback of Notre Dam, walk like she's about 80 years old (with the assistance of a pretend cane) and curl her lips over her teeth and speak in a geriatric fashion. Another one character she likes to portray is Felicity. She comes down with all of her play jewelry on, a purse with a little dog in it and whip her hair around as she talks like she's a 14 year old girl who must have been raised in Beverly Hills. It's hilarious to watch, except when we found out recently that she can command tears and pretend cry within seconds. That is when we really realized how committed to the craft she is, at only 5 years young!
I know everyone always says that it goes to fast, but seriously, it does! I just cannot believe she is 5. Happy Birthday Nora Rose. I cannot wait to see what the next 5 years brings.
