7.7.12












to say my life has dramatically changed would be the ultimate understatement.
i've been thrown into a world of sleepless nights, endless diaper changing and constant feeding.
no matter how well you prepare for the day of arrival,
it will never be enough.
like everyone says, until you're wearing the shoes you'll never, ever fully understand it.

the moment i heard his little cry and saw his sweet face will forever be burned in my memory.
i never knew i could love someone so much, so immediately.

we're inseperable.
i could stare at him all day and night.
he's amazing.
he looks just like his dad.

i love the way he coos.
i love his little hands and feet.
i love the way he rests his head on my chest and the way we snuggle together.

he's perfect.

i'm in love.

in love with noah.
in love with brandon.
in love with our family.
in love with the life ahead of us.

Congratulations!! And the amazing journey of motherhood has begun. My daughter is 6 years old and she continues to amaze me on a daily basis.

He is adorable and you look so happy to finally have your bundle of joy in your arms.

I toldjaso. And as I remember, when you were three months old and sleeping and you whimpered in your sleep, I couldn't *imagine* what could make such a beautiful girl, so perfect and so wonderful, cry. And I wrote that little poem about it. I love you all so much.
