Norah's 4th birthday was May 1st. We invited family over and had a great time. Besides all the presents Norah's favorite thing was the balloons. Glen bought a kit that has it's own helium tank with it, so that Norah could watch all of the balloons being blown up.
Daddy's big helper.

The pig was ready to party too.

The balloons were a BIG hit. Just look at the excitement on that face.

How many balloons does it take to carry off a 4 year old?

We tied some of the balloons to the mailbox. Norah thought that was just the neatest thing ever and had to check it out with Dad. She then had to stare out of the window every 30 seconds and do the sign for balloons to everyone.

There is sugar and spice in there, trust me. This is just her attitude slipping out.

My brother's awesome girlfriend made (that's right people, MADE) this blanket for Norah. He better snag her quick because she is a catch. (and now of course can do no wrong in our eyes).

Norah doesn't like to hold bugs but she sure does like to look at them, so this little creature house was PERFECT.

My Mom and Dad got Norah a great lego table and doll. Both of which she has played with non-stop. My brother found her a cool highchair that attaches to the table, perfect for putting babies OR Stitch dressed up as a bunny into.
My family has been so supportive and just open to loving Norah without any preconceived conditions attached. It really is a beautiful thing. Oh, and my Dad is totally hooked! She has him wrapped so far around her little finger, she says jump he says how high and should I bring you some candy back on the way down?

During all this fun and excitment we can't help but feel for Norah's birth parents. They cared for this little girl for 15 months before they had to abandon her in order for her to get the medical attention that she needed. It had to be heartbreaking for them and the time around her birthday must be especially sad for them. We ask that you pray for peace for her "other" family. We have put out the word through alot of different sources (which will not be mentioned here) in hopes that it will trickle down to them some how that she is safe, loved and is receiving the attention she needs.
