On Saturday we had your party, Noah. It was absolutely one of the most fun times with you. I always love birthdays, and now getting to share them with you, it brings total joy to my heart! Every time you opened a present, you would gasp really loud and say “oh WOW mommy!” Sometimes you would gasp 2 or 3 times…once you said “Oh WOW! What is it Jude?” You were so excited to be getting something, you didn’t even know what it was! You were certainly a treat! Mommy and daddy had shopped a long time ago for your presents…we got you pots and pans and food for your playhouse that you got at Christmas time. You loved it! Jude and Peter got you a nerf gun. You have a hard time making it work, but you love shooting the mirror when you can get someone to pump it for you. I can’t wait to take you out and play with the new Tball set you got from Gma and Gpa. They also got you Superman PJ’s. You wore them that night, slept with the truck that Moss got you and wore them the next day. And the next. I finally got to wash them! You started doing flips all around the house and said “I’m a superhero mommy!” You are my superhero, Noah! We run around and play a sort of freeze tag right now. You say I am frozen, then you come and unfreeze me and I say “MY HERO!” What fun! You are also expanding in the art world, now, too. Uncle Nate and Aunt Kari got you a sidewalk chalk set that is 3D. Gma and Gpa got you Horton Hears a Who coloring books. Mommy and Daddy also got you your own CD player. It has Elmo on it. You were so excited about that! It has a microphone attached to it and you started singing on it right away.
I got to make your cake for you this year. It was Horton! I found out how to do it on the internet and it turned out ok! You loved it. You ate it for breakfast for about 4 days after the party, too. And snacks. Grandma H just couldn’t say no! It was so cute!
