Twelve years ago on this day at 2:12 in the morning an impatient tiny baby boy made his early entrance into this world. The moment he was born my life changed forever. His first breath took mine away – I was in awe. I was in love. I was exhausted. I was a MOM!

I was nineteen when Noah was born. We’ve grown up together in some ways. Noah has taught me more than he will ever realize and not just basic Mom things like changing diapers or staying up with a sick child. He’s taught me about unconditional love. Because of him, I’m a better person. I’ve made many, many mistakes and I’ve done many things right. It hasn’t been an easy road but it’s definately been worth it.

Today, we celebrate Noah! It will be a low key celebration. In the past, I’ve thrown these big parties but they just stress Noah out. He doesn’t do well with a crowd so I hope he will enjoy this celebration amongst close family. BIg or small – we will celebrate the day Noah entered our lives and stole our hearts. We celebrate all that he is and all that he will become.

Happy birthday Noah!

(Don’t worry, I’ll post party pics tomorrow or sometime soon! 🙂 )
