She has been very close to our hearts the past six months as we have watched Norah change from a newborn to a smiley, beautiful, happy baby--all the experiences that we never got to have with Harper. I catch myself wondering if Harper and Norah would have looked alike, if her giggles would sound like Norah's, if they would have liked the same things and if their personalities would have been similar. I know I will never know but I can't help but wonder.
My Christmas present to myself and to a few family members this year was a sketch I had done of Harper from her hospital pictures. It turned out beautifully and is hanging proudly in our entry way with the rest of our family just where she belongs.
I love it and am so happy that I had it done! And because a post wouldn't be complete without an updated picture of Norah...here she is!! My sweet baby girl! This is taken on her half birthday. She looks like such a big girl sitting up by herself. She is such a doll and I feel so lucky to be her mommy. My heart seriously wants to burst with the love I have for this child. I am blessed beyond measure.
That bow is seriously hanging on by a little red thread ;)
