8 years ago tomorrow...

our lives changed dramatically. It's hard to believe that Noah has been with us for 8 years! When he was diagnosed with hydranencephaly we were told he probably wouldn't live more than 2 to 4 years. I was asked today if it's hard to believe that he has been with us for 8 years. I said it isn't as it has been a long and hard 8 years, and sometimes it feels longer than 8 years, but it has also been a wonderful 8 years.

Life definitely isn't what we had planned or hoped, but we can also see how lucky we are to have such an amazing little man in our family. Whenever Noah has another birthday I have mixed feelings - happy that he is able to celebrate another one, but also sad because I don't know how many more we will have with him. I look back at photos and can't believe how much we have been through with him, and how much he has changed over the years. I wanted to put together a clip to remember the past 8 years with him.

We love you Noah and are so glad you came to our family, and we are especially glad that we get to celebrate another birthday with you!

  7. Happy birthday Noah. You have grown up so much! Your video brought tears to my eyes too. Lots of memories of you are in that video. My favourite memory of you is when you had a very happy day, and you kept laughing and smiling at everything! You were such a crackup that day and made my day. We love you, Love Auntie Nicki, Uncle Alex, Maddi and Little Alex xxx

  18. Ditto to all the above.

    A few things I love about Noah...
    - his big beautiful brown eyes
    - he has forgiven me for the few times I have tried to wheel his chair and nearly crashed (and not told on me)
    - his thick deep brown hair that you can't help run your hands through
    - his trendy ugg boots
    - he lets me give him a kiss when I see him even if I have smelly breath (which I don't.... but u never know!! :)

    Happy birthday Noah xx
