Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Know what that means?

It means Noah is gave me the greatest Christmas present this year.

Noah is WALKING!!

He just gets up and goes. He is also crawling up and down the stairs as being downstairs is his most favorite place in the world. He is jabbering more with lots of gaaa's and laaa's and back of the throat noises. He likes to play bye bye where he waves and says bye then crawls around the corner. Then he comes back and does it again. He even comes up to me and says ickle while he tries to tickle me.

He went from nada to yada almost over night. It's wonderful to see him make such progress. He is SO full of personality.

I am so thankful that he is here with us. It's just one of those things I don't take for granted.

I love how he gives me kisses every night while I say prayers with him. He just plants them on me the entire time. I love how he face plants himself on the floor when he is trying to show off. I love how I can't go into the bathroom alone because he MUST come in and make sure their isn't water in the tub to play with. And I love how every time he has his shirt off he rubs his little budda belly all gentle like.

I remember last year we hadn't been home from Denver very long. Noah had just had surgery to remove his yucky gallbladder and appendix and we had been in and out of the ER and hospital. And, even though at the time I didn't know it, we were about to spend a few days in there again for RSV.

This year, he seems to be staying fairly healthy even though he does have a runny nose and a cough. His nebulizer helps the cough. I've been sick and Lilly is super sick and yet *crossing my fingers* he's done okay ever since his Fifth's breakout over Halloween.

He loves toys and I can't wait to see how he reacts tomorrow morning.

I am very mindful of his Donor Family this night. They are never far from my mind but I know this is only the 2nd Christmas without their precious baby. And while I still don't know who they are I grieve for their loss. I know the price that was paid to have Noah here with me.

So to our Donor Family, our Family, our Friends, and our Readers... Merry Christmas!

Much Love,
