Today we celebrate our Leap Day baby's second birthday! I can hardly believe it's been two years since Naomi was born. We are thankful she is so strong and healthy. Though her size is considerably smaller than other kids her age, she's making up for it by being incredibly active and verbal. Just last week I was reminded to be grateful for her constant activity: I took Nathan and Naomi to a college basketball game, and she ran around the entire time. Up the stairs, down the stairs, laps around the bleachers, picking up popcorn (and gum--ack!) that had fallen on the floor. Etc. Several people commented on what a busybody she is. (Tell me about it!) As we biked home, I was feeling weary and caught myself wishing she wasn't such an active child. Almost instantly, I was reminded that two years ago, when I was on bed rest, we celebrated her many movements. We were grateful she was so active. And I need to remember that, even though she tires me out on a regular basis.
With that being said, here are a few pictures that capture some of Naomi's personality. Happy birthday, cutie pie!
