North West, the adorable and outspoken daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, is celebrating her birthday today. Because of her uber-famous parents, we have had the liberty of watching her grow up from infancy. She’s changed quite a bit in four years. We’ve seen her swaddled at a few months old, chilling front row at fashion shows between Beyoncé and Anna Wintour, and telling the paparazzi not to take pictures of her after ballet class. She has continued to transform right before our eyes.
What has changed more than North’s own personality and sense of style, though, is the world around her. A lot can happen in four years, and it has. Some of it has hit pretty close to home for the birthday girl. Here are eight major events that have happened since Nori made her debut.
Happy birthday, North!
