He came 8 months ago today. The number 19 has special meaning now in my life. A couple years down the line, we won’t pay attention to when he is 5 years and 2/3/4 months! But for now, I will revel in each month of his first year along with his parents and everyone else who adores him. So much happens in the first year. You don’t have to be a mom to see it, either.
Noah George changed my life before he even arrived. I couldn’t possibly have dreamt up a more adorable child. Sure, I’m biased. I’m allowed. But seriously, he’s pretty darn cute, right?! : ) At 8 months, Bugs is almost crawling, loves to be outside and has two of the cutest teeth in all the land.
Being an Aunt is the most fun ever. Any kind of visit from my nephew is the best: planned, surprise, 5 minutes, fall asleep in my arms (rare, but it’s happened) visit, sleepovers, bath time, one on one babysitting time. My favorite memory with him so far is when we snuggled next to a glowing Christmas tree as he slept in my arms with xmas music in the background. Noah brings so much joy to my life and he’s taught me a couple things:
There is something new to discover every day. At the risk of sounding a bit SAP, Noah reminds me of all of the wonder in the world and he keeps me from being jaded and closed down. Stay open minded and it will change your life.
Life is fun. It’s as simple as that. Don’t get it twisted. You are what you make of your life.
Yoda is nerdy. You put Yoda on a baby and not only is Yoda made cool, you also get the most perfect blend of stupid cute and squeezable.
There is no such thing as too many hugs, too many kisses, too many loves. Make your love known. Tomorrow is never promised.
I love you to the stars and back, sweet boy. I’m always here for you.
All my love,
