Today is Norah's fourth birthday. Dwayne and I just keep saying, "I can't believe she's four!" Even though she's only a day older than she was yesterday, she just seems so much older all of a sudden and that makes us feel so much older ourselves. I've had my eyes open her whole life, watching her almost constantly, but I still feel like I've missed too much, like time is moving too fast for me to see all I want to of her. I just want time to slow down so I can savor these years even more! I am thankful that I am able to be home with her. I think I'd go mad if I had to be away from her to go to work everyday. These years are so precious and they are passing too quickly. At this moment, I am sure that anything I could earn from a career would pale when compared to the reward of pouring my time and talents into her.
