Three Years!

This Friday, the 22nd of June, our son will be turning three. Noah has changed and grown so much over the last three years. And while some milestones took a while, every step along the way has been worth our struggles and hard work. I am very proud of what Noah has accomplished and I cherish every moment spent with him. Did you know, medically, Noah should not be with us on Earth? God could have taken him to his heavenly home on November 5th, 2010. But God marveled everyone... his doctors, nurses, friends and family. Even Aaron and I. After the doctors revived Noah (his heart had been without a beat for 44 minutes) they kept telling us that Noah could have brain damage and that even though his body would be here, HE wouldn't. God started to show us that He was still in the Miracle business. December 14th, 2010 God gave us the first miracle.. in the form of a smile. A sweet precious smile that still gets the tears flowing every time I think back to that moment. It had been 40 days since we had saw ANY kind of reassurance that Noah was "still there". I like to think that God gave us that smile as a present from my late Grandmother Hilda. After all, it was her birthday. She would have loved him dearly.

So here we are. We still have 4 days left of having a 2 year old in our house. He has learned so much this past year. TONS of new words! His strength is still on the rise. He just learned how to crawl a month ago and he cruises along furniture. Just within the last 2 weeks, he has started to walk holding our hands, so ANY day now, he will be taking his first steps on his own. Oh, what a glorious day that will be!! He will be a true walking Miracle! I get all giddy just thinking about it! :)

This Saturday, we are having a party for Noah. Noah loves Mickey Mouse!! And what better way to celebrate his 3rd birthday, than to throw him a Mickey Mouse and Friends birthday party!! So much fun! I will be posting photos next week for you all to see! Until then, thank you everyone for the continued prayers and love!

Welcome to Noah's blog! We thank you for following us on our God-led journey and thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! Noah was born June 22, 2009 with many anatomical birth defects and underwent his first major surgery when he was just 4 days old. He has been in and out of the hospital since day one and has had a total of 4 major surgeries to date, with his latest one being the most extreme and difficult - his first open heart surgery on November 4 and December 17th, 2010. He is a warrior and this is his journey...

He is getting so BIG!!!!
