Look Who's Two!
Yesterday Noah celebrated his 2nd birthday! Each day seems to bring something new. His personality is shining through more and more. When I think back to where he was two years ago, it just doesn't seem possible that he was ever that sick. Although he still struggles with feeding issues and other typical CDH stuff, it doesn't keep him down. He is happy, playful, and full of energy, everything typical of a two year old! Overall he has had a great year! He took his first steps, is learning more and more words and became a big brother. He has only had one hospitalization and few minor procedures, all involving his feeding tube. His social skills and anxiety have improved by leaps and bounds. He is finally trusting enough to enjoy being around other people and kids. We are continually amazed at his progress and are so very thankful to be where we are today. We want to thank everyone for being such a great support system and encouraging us along the way. I don't know how many times we have said that we couldn't have done it without our family and friends. It's crazy to think that two years ago we were just starting out and to look now at how far he has come. He may never know just how special his birthdays will be for us! Here's to next year and I hope by his 3rd birthday, he will actually want to EAT his cake!
