As Norah’s birthday celebrations continue, so does the arrival of her visitors! This weekend, we spent some time with Grammy and Auntie Em, and boy did we have fun!

Norah knew that they were coming, and apparently somewhere along the way I had mentioned that Grammy was bringing mangos. The things this smart little girl remembers is amazing, because as soon as we got home from school, a chorus of “Grammy? Mangos?” rang out and continued for most of the evening as we waited for their arrival. Luckily, Grammy knows her granddaughter and brought three mangos, raspberries, and strawberries! A fruit-loving girl’s dream.

On Saturday, we went to Morrill Hall, one of Norah’s favorite places. She had a blast showing Grammy and Auntie Em all of the animals and fossils!

We also got to eat at HuHot, and Norah even filled her own bowl full of her favorites: steak, chicken, tomatoes, carrots, two pieces of broccoli, peas, and mushrooms. She was a happy camper!

We also got to make Norah’s second birthday cake: Great-Aunt Mary’a yummy cupcakes {chocolate cake with a chocolate chip cream cheese filling. They are, in a word, divine}.

Norah is starting to get the hang of blowing out candles, though she still appreciates some moral support.

She loved her new farm animals, her rain coat and boots, her mop, her scrub brushes for washing vegetables and dishes, and her Dr Seuss books. But most of all, she loved seeing and playing with Grammy and Auntie Em!
