When this baby woke up today he looked like this!
It was just yesterday that he was a baby, right? How can time truly fly so fast? I love when he was a baby - holding him, feeding him, snuggling him, watching him play, making him laugh because he is the ticklest baby ever! I love that stage. I love him in that stage. I cherish him as a baby would give anything to have a couple of those days back. To hold him, smell him, cuddle him, just me and him. Dollar Family party of 3 - just a couple of those days!
BUT, believe it or not...I love him now too! And I love our big ole' family. When we brought him home I remember thinking... who else is gonna be in this family? I wonder how many brothers or sisters he's gonna have? I wonder who he's gonna look like? I wonder who he will act like? I wonder ... I wonder... I wonder... Well, now I know a little bit more - maybe too much - JUST KIDDING!!!
Today we are going to celebrate another friends Birthday at church and I was feeling really horrible for not being around on his birthday (which Jason is taking him to Target - that's all he wants for his birthday - TARGET and CASH) - so they are celebrating. But I was still bummed. And I was telling Noah about it and he said, "Mom, I'm just 10 - it's ok! I'm fine!" - We will celebrate soon with family but 10 years ago today he stopped my world. He changed me! He started molding me into a "mother" - I want to celebrate!! Noah, WE MADE IT TEN YEARS! To me that's huge. I ache to think in 10 more years he will be a MAN! But there will be perks to that too!! Oh, how I treasure this time with him as a kid.
I love him...
Don't blink, don't blink, don't blink!!
