Yes it is normal with recorder. You only need to blow very gently, using slow, warm air.
If you blow too hard on any recorder you will get a high squeaky note. As a test, blow air onto the back of your hand. If it feels cold it is too fast for recorder. If it is warm, that is what you want to play recorder.

You don't stop playing when you get old. You get old when you stop playing.
