Today is probably the best day of the year - because my niece, Nora, celebrates her first birthday.
At one, Nora is brilliant, beautiful, and has perfected the art of air-kissing her aunt via telephone.
Nora knows how to use a BlackBerry on her own to randomly call her most beloved relatives, including her Aunt KayKay and her Nana and Papa, complete with heavy breathing and the occasional random yelp.
Nora is the queen of the cruising set, and has also mastered the most shrill shrieking you've heard this side of the Mississippi River.
Nora is practically perfect in every way, and I adore her immensely - not just because (at this rate) she is probably going to have to take care of me in the Old Folks' Home, but because she is the most special little girl in my universe.
Happy Birthday, Nora Bora!
