Happy Birthday to my sweet baby...





He was due December 20th...the birthday of our oldest son!
Our oldest turned 15 years old and the twentieth came and went.
I was 35 years old and felt ancient.
I was so very pregnant and ready to see our new baby boy.

Finally on December 29th, at about 5:00 in the afternoon
they hooked me up to be induced.
At almost ten days late, you could say I was quite READY!!!





Our precious family members poured into the waiting room,
just knowing that this being our FIFTH child, the labor should be swift and
we would all be able to see our sweet Noah soon.
Ugh NO.
It just wasn't going to happen!






My body was tired and said...uh, no, this ain't happening...
after much begging to my OB, I finally delivered a precious baby boy
early in the morning of December 30th, 1997 by cesarean section.
He was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.
But to me, all of our boys were beautiful!





So today, our least 'un...our little baby boy Noah,
turns fifteen....
And what a precious soul he is!!!
Just when I thought our family was complete,
this little angel sneaks up on me ~
Dear Lord, thank you so much...
I'm so very glad he did!!!





Happy Birthday Noah!!!
I'm sure you know, with four older brothers,
and your mama and dad
and really ALL of your dear family...
that you are truly, truly LOVED!!!





Counting my blessings
on this almost New Year's Eve precious friends ~
and always wishing you...
A Beautiful NEW YEAR!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Oh Dawn, I forgot you had FIVE BOYS- wow. You need to come visit and spend girlie girl pink tea party me to offset all that blue, haha. Seriously, anytime!

I think your young men are very handsome, and I wish the very best for Noah's next year. Bet he can't WAIT to be driving. Can he get his learner's permit now like we can at 15 in Ohio?

Happy Birthday to Noah:) I know that sweet fella has really been a blessing to you! Enjoy each day dear friend, time goes by WAY too fast to suit me! HUGS!

Vee said...

Wow! That's a story all right. I remember when he wasn't a teenager...just a youngster. I've told his broken leg story to Sam who felt that if someone else could "do it" so could he. So Noah has a special spot in our hearts, too. They sure are a great group of guys!

oh my what a lovely tribute. Such handsome men!
We had our first daughter when I was 35 , our second @ 37!
What a joy to have children, and now I will be a gramma next month!
I am so very thankful for the joyful season we have had and for the hope of the new year!
Blessings to you and your family.
