Michelle at 2

It is Michelle’s birthday today. She turns 2.

She has grown a lot in the last year. From barely walking to running around and talking in 3-word sentences, she’s done it all! It has been amazing watching her do everything for the first time and soon mastering it. I am still surprised when I speak an Urdu word and she gives me its English translation or vice versa.

Here are some photographs.

Cool glasses
Michelle is not a Whale Rider
The prettiest of them all

Today will be a busy day since we are celebrating Michelle’s birthday.
