My baby is ONE!!
Where, oh where, did this year go?
A year ago today I was gearing up to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, much like I am gearing up for tomorrow’s celebration. But I was extremely pregnant! My life with two kiddos was quickly coming to an end, as I was anticipating the arrival of our third child just a few short days later.
Noah’s birth was shrouded in mystery.
We didn’t know if he was a boy or a girl, until that precious moment, seconds after we heard his tiny little wail for the first time, when the doctor peered her head around the curtain as I lay on the operating table, and exclaimed “it’s a boy!”
We didn’t know what to name him. We were actually so certain that he would be a “she” that we only had girl names picked out! He remained nameless for the better part of a day while we picked out the perfect name for him: Noah Brooks Slater.
We didn’t know what a perfect fit he would be in our family:)
Noah has his own very unique personality compared to his other two brothers, and complements them so well. He is doted on by his big brothers, and as he is beginning to exert his own independence, it is so cool to watch the three of them interact and play together.
So, in honor of my baby boy’s first birthday, here are a few pics from our “Very Hungry Caterpillar” birthday party!
Happy Birthday Noah:)
We love you so much.
PS. Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD2015)!! Don’t forget to wear yellow and blue in support of our family and of Jake! And don’t forget to post your pics and tag me in them:) Thanks friends!
