Laugh if you must but I'm not even kidding in the slightest. I was going to post this picture for #throwbackthursday on Instagram last week
On our way home from the hospital.
but I got so hung up on tiny little Noah that I had a meltdown and forgot to post. Seriously - this picture induced a full on, tears-streaming-down-my-cheeks, hugging and kissing my baby meltdown.
Every step of the way, I'm amazed at how much my son is learning and growing and don't get me wrong, I cannot wait to see him grow up! He's going to be, and already is, such an amazing kid. But the baby stage is almost over and you guys, I'm not letting go of it that easily.
So, here I am. Almost 11 months into motherhood. I've struggled some days and eased through others but couldn't have done any of it without my fabulous mommy friends, my sister, my husband and my family.
As we (it does take a village you know) enter into this next stage of his life, I can't help but think how bittersweet it is to step into the whole new realm of toddlerhood.
Well, you know... without the toddling. My kid has yet to crawl or walk.
If you haven't already seen this picture, I'm in complete denial that he's grown that much!
(11 month pics will be taken next week.)
Regardless of how mobile he'll be or not be, his first birthday is sure to be a blast. Some people have asked me why I'm even bothering with a big party, heck, he won't even remember it! But see, that's just it - I WILL. A first birthday only happens once and I want it to be special. Besides, parties are fun so why not?! ;)
Just like my girl Brittany, we are in full swing planning this shindig and let's just say, it's definitely gonna be colorful.
There will be coloring books, balloons, candy, and cupcakes galore. We'll have a fun photo booth set up and maybe even a play area for the kiddos.
All in all, it's going to be a great time - even if I am crying in the corner.
my Noah's party and I'll cry if I want to.
