Dear Noah:

You are such a joy to me and your daddy. Today it was storming off and on. I am so glad you enjoy the rain and storms as much as I do. We LOVE to be out on the balcony squealing in delight as it thunders and we see lightening and then count to see how far away the storms are. When the rain began spraying on us and was so cold we ran inside and sat by your bedroom windown and looked out. We opened the window off and on to "feel the cool breeze on our face" and to "smell the rain". I LOVE to smell the rain and we don't get to do so very often here in Colorado as we normally don't have much rain. You seemed to enjoy this as much as me. We would wait for a nice breeze, close our eyes and sniff the air. It was wonderful. We would then laugh and giggle and kiss each other and do it all over again.

Your daddy thought you were funny today. He was going to place "albums" on our turntable and you said "Daddy....let's play the BIG DVDs". That is funny. I guess you think the albums look like DVDs and in fact they do don't they?

Momma squirrel came up to eat some nuts and drink water today. She is nursing and must have babies in a next somewhere. The birds are enjoying the water today too and the bread I tossed out to them.

Grandma Lincoln just called. Said they have had a lot of rain there. We were talking about age and getting older. Your grandpa Lincoln will turn 70 this October 25. SO hard to believe. Your daddy will be 50 next week. That is also so hard to believe. Time truly stands still for no one I guess.

You have just finished jumping up and down on mommy and daddy's bed...something we tell you you really should NOT do. But you enjoy doing it anyway and giggle and laugh the entire time. You said you were pretending to have WINGS so you could FLY LIKE A BUTTERFLY. I told you to quit flying before you flew into our ceiling fan directly over our bed.

Time to go......I have things to get done around the house. I love you dearly.

Dear Noah

I came home today and you came running out of your bedroom to wrap your arms around me and give me the biggest hug! I hope you are always that happy to see me walk in the door!!! I think we will go look at some more new houses today. We are outgrowing our space here in the condo and it is time to get a bigger place soon. You LOVE to go house hunting!! You also love to go to Home Depot and Lowes!! ANYTHING home improvement (including shows on tv) and ANYTHING to do with TOILETS you LOVE! You have watched the TOP 10 BATHROOM show on the Travel Channel MANY MANY TIMES!! Not sure where that interest is coming from but we are thankful as we are interested in the same things so we can do so much as a family together and have a great time! I have a coffee cake in the oven now and need to get some more work done.

I love you so much!!

You have always had such a beautiful happy smile!! Posted by Hello

Dear Noah

I wish I could find the words to tell you just how much I love you! I never dreamed it would be possible to feel so much love for a child let alone another human being. Time has gone by so quickly already. I find it so hard to believe you are 5 1/2 years old and this fall will be starting kindergarten. Where has the time gone? I worry about you and your future. So much strife is in the world these days and seems to be getting worse by the minute. I know I should not worry but I do. I only want the best for you and for you to only be happy and have the best memories and life you could possibly have here on this earth. I pray to God constantly for guidance in bringing you up. I remember hearing how we are to "pray without ceasing" and since you have been born I can say I CERTAINLY do that! I guess I know as a human I do have limits and can only protect you so much in your life. Someday if you read these entries I hope you will be able to grasp just how MUCH you mean to me and your daddy. I love you to the MOON AND BACK INFINITY and beyond....FOREVER...and EVER....and EVER....and EVER.....AGAIN....and AGAIN....and AGAIN...and AGAIN. YOU will know this as I have repeated this same phrase to you EVERY night before you go to sleep. I do hope and pray you will enjoy being a CHILD. You have plenty of time to grow up and step out into this world.

I love you forever!
