Happy Birthday, Noah

Although it feels like it has been a year, it still seems incredible to me that this time last year Joy and I were holed up in a hospital room with the newest member of our family. Noah was born one year ago today at 6:00 in the morning, and to commemorate the event, he chose to wake up at 6:00 this morning just to remind us how far we had come.

In retrospect, it is amazing to watch babies develop over their first year of life. Last year on this day, Noah looked like this:This past Sunday at the wedding we attended in Eureka Springs, he looked like this:
He now talks (duck, mama, dada), walks (albeit with an unsteady wobble), expresses strong opinions (like wanting his smoothie this morning in his sippy cup or not at all, even if bits of strawberry were clogging the spout), and in general brings light and delight into our lives. Who knows what the next year will bring, but it will certainly be an adventure worth having.

Happy First Birthday, Noah!
