For my darling Noah Bear,
Happy Birthday, little Halloweenie! It is hard to believe that you are 3! You still seem so little. So much littler than your sister seemed at 3. But that is one of the things I love about you so much. You are my tiny cuddle bug. I love that you are a snuggler. I love to hug you and kiss you and squeeze you! You have the greatest laugh and the cutest crackly voice.
Your life has not been easy. You live in a world that doesn't quite make sense to you. But you are a fighter. You are hard as nails and have never given up! You have come so far in the last year and I am so proud of you.
In the last year you have learned how to ride a tricycle, draw pictures, sing lots of songs and use the potty. You learned how to sleep in a big boy bed and FINALLY can sleep by yourself! You learned how to talk, much to our relief, and we have gotten hours of enjoyment out of the cute things that have come out of your mouth. You say "I love you" spontaneously, and it melts my heart every time! You are totally consumed with anything relating to cars and trains. Basically, if it has wheels on it, it is right up your alley!
You have figured out a way to live solely off of chocolate soy milk, Goldfish crackers and Little Debbie's 100 calorie brownies. Seriously- this is no exaggeration- this is all you eat.
You are so curious. You love to explore the outdoors. You are fearless almost to the point of madness and I love how you will try anything once.
Your dad and I just sit around and smile when we think about how cute you are. You have been our needy child, the one that we stay awake at night and worry about. It hasn't always been a picnic, but I love that you need me.
You have brought so much joy to my life. I LOVE having a crazy, snuggly, little boy running around. You have opened my eyes to so many things, and taught me so much about tenacity, patience and loving when it hurts. You are an incredible little boy. You have the brightest eyes, the most loving spirit, and I am madly in love with you!
Happy Birthday, Noah! I love you, sweet boy!
