Noah's Dad


{hangin' in the hospital room...}

{what a face!!}

One of the coolest things about my "new life" is seeing new sides to my amazing husband Joe. He has always been the most loving, low-key, patient, unconditionally accepting, non-critical best friend I could hope for. Now, though, he adds to this list so many other things to love:

~ yesterday, he read "Horton Hears a Who" to Noah.
~he is quick to grab "my" camera and take a turn, instead of deferring to me. It is making him an excellent photographer in his own right.
~he has become the video-meister.
~he talks Noah through his diaper changes, to keep him comforted.
~he pops out of bed when the late late night has taken its toll on me and I can't do any more...willingly taking his turn.
~he remembers to wrap his arms around ME and tell ME how much he loves me... It's not only about Noah here.
~he lets me make mistakes.
~he is so conscientious of my post-op needs.
~he is quietly patient and strong, even when Noah is having a freak-out session.
~he is, honestly, more attractive to me than ever.

I am so grateful for the way we have begun this journey. It gives me confidence in the weeks, months and years to come. I see how we are as a team and I know we can only get better and better. And Noah is DANG lucky to have this fun-loving, intelligent, spiritual, amazing man as a dad.

  1. Are you SERIOUSLY going to blog about nothing but your son? Is everything now going to tie in to him? Because he was SO last week. Seriously.

    HA HA!!! Is joke, yes? In all honesty, I love that you can post videos now- they're a lot of fun to watch. And Noah remains, to this day, one heck of a good looking little butter pat.

    LOVE YOU!!!
