You have grown so much from the 8 lb. 6 oz and 19 inches you were at birth. In the past year you have gained over 11 lbs and grew over 11 inches. You have gotten two teeth, learned to crawl and many other things. You have had your first hair cut, you terrorize the dog and eat anything you can! Your eyes and smile still light up a room and can get you out of almost anything. They melt your mommy's heart!
I want to remember every moment that I can! The way you used to hum in your sleep and now how you do it to keep yourself awake. Or how you fit perfect in the crease of my neck when you fall asleep, like we are two perfect pieces of a puzzle make to be together. Or find a tag on anything you can to suck on when you are ready to fall asleep.
I have spent so much time wondering what you will become in life. My perfect little man never give up, you can do anything you put your mind to and don't ever think anything else. Will you take over the world like you have mine? Will you make small changes in the world, or big changes. I hope that you grow to be a good many like your daddy and pappy. I hope you learn to live and love without fear like your mommy. Be everything and anything you want to be and can my little man!
Mommy and daddy love you so very much and so do so many other people.
Happy Birthday Noah!
