Noah – I hope you know how much we love you and how thankful we are for you!
You are an amazing little dude! After having Paulie, your Dad and I knew we wanted to add to our family. We prayed that God would help us have another baby. And, almost two and a half years after Paulie was born, you came into our lives.
You definitely came in with a ROAR! While you weren’t due until August 12th, you decided you wanted to come out early – 24 days early! Because you were born so early, your little lungs weren’t developed, so you needed to go into a special room where the doctors & nurses watched you constantly. You did so well, we were able to bring you home just 7 days after you were born. Praise God for that!
When you were in that special room, I was able to sit and watch you. For the first time, I understood how much babies don’t know and what they all need to learn. I watched you breathe for the first time. I watched you eat for the first time. These are things I just assumed little ones knew – but you helped me realize how much we needed to teach you. And, you helped me to realize how much a mother’s heart grows.
You continue to amaze me every day! I watch as you learn new things – some by following your older brother, and some you learn on your own. I also watch as you teach your little sister things. You are a great leader & a great follower.
God blessed you with a loving heart and a smile that can light up even the darkest room! Watching you grow up is a true blessing to me.
Please always remember, God loves you! He made you special for our family – and He made you the perfect middle man for our family! He has very special plans for you, and I look forward to seeing those plans come to life!
Noah – we love you very much! We are so very proud of the child you are, we are truly blessed to be your parents, and we are very thankful that God gave you to us!
