Three years ago today, we had our 1st sweet boy. He was 7 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. I was sick all 9 months I was pregnant with him & decided to have my 2nd c-section 2 weeks before his due date. I was having panic attacks & stress issues at the end. Being my 1st pregnancy after Morgan Mae.

Noah was an awful baby his 1st almost 5 months. Then he became the sweetest little monkey & SO MUCH FUN! He is still that today....most of the time, now that he's 3 & has this little attitude & all:) Here are some fun pics of our sweet boy over the past 3 years:)...

3rd Birthday Morning:)
Noah absolutely loves cars! I mean the boy always has at least 2 in his hand, if not 5 or 6! He also loooves his sister. He gets so excited everytime she gets home from school! He runs out to the bus & jumps up & down & gives her hugs as soon as the wheelchair lift hits the ground. I can't wait to see how protective he is of her in the future. Noah has been loving Sam since he started realizing he's going to be a playmate/trouble maker too:)! They have already starting wrestling on the ground. Well, Noah has anyways:) Noah never, ever, ever stops moving. Unless, it is a movie he really likes:). He of course loooves the movie "Cars" but "Up" and the "Toy Story" movies aren't so bad either:).
Noah is very much 100% CRAZY BOY. I am so glad that he is ours forever:).
Also, I can't forget how much he loves his "B". Especially the white "B". His blanket. Noah NEEDS it to sleep. He also still thinks Mama & Papa are still awesome...which rocks! And he still loves his hugs & snuggles;).
Happy 3rd Birthday Crazy No No!!!!
We love you soooooooo much!

Morgan's Plates

This picture was taken 1 and 1/2 weeks after surgery:).

These are what they took out of our sweet little girl's legs! They are about 6 inches long & a quarter of an inch thick. The wire inbetween the 2 brackets is a piece of the teflon wire that closed up her chest after her heart surgery 3 years ago. They removed a piece of the wire because it was irritating her chest. Man, she sure is one tough cookie!

How tough is Morgan, when she got home from surgery that Wednesday afternoon, she wouldn't nap. Then she proceeded to scoot around on her bum all over the house & get into mischief. She was back at church on Sunday & school on Monday.

We love you so much Morgan Mae. Thank you for being so inspiring & amazing! And being ours!

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Happy Mother's Day Mimi!

Without you, I wouldn't be here! So....none of these little crazies would either:).

Mom, thank you so much for putting up with all my craziness.
Teaching me the importance of honesty.
Taking me to swimming everywhere!
Helping my family however you guys can.
Talking with me for hours.
And always letting me know that no matter what you loved me.

We miss you like crazy! We wish we could be there to celebrate
MOTHER'S DAY with you!
