it is hard to believe:


that this was me from just a week ago - a layout i completed about 12 hours before noah arrived. i was documenting all of the kicks and punches i received and where i thought his bottom, shoulders and legs were!
little did i know that we would be greeted by this sweet boy in a matter of hours:
and i do believe the baby map we had created really was true to where he was...
... it has almost been a week now and soon it will be back to reality for me with maya road but i have taken it easy this week (but if you ask my DH, you know that my definition of "take it easy" is not what most people think - LOL) but with that "taking it easy" i have come to realized, this baby boy has changed me.
i speak with a softer voice and some would even say i am nicer. i can't explain it. i used to approach life with an edge to me and i did up until noah was born. can one little person chnage me that much? david says he notices it too - a softer side to me with this child. and to me that is a good thing - this is natural now - a softer side - without having to work at it so hard. i even tear up over this kiddo sometimes and i am not one to cry very often. i would venture to say that that i hardly recognize some parts of myself. but it is all about growing for the better.

HUGE congrats to you & David on the birth of little Noah!!! He is so cute!! And I can relate to the softer side. I noticed the same with me when I had my son 5 years ago. It's the new you :) Enjoy it, even if it does feel strange sometimes! Kids just make us wear our heart on our sleeves whether we like it or not ;)
Congrats!!

Caroline, He is absolutely gorgeous. They really do change people - you realize what is truly important and if you could make time stand still just to get a few more seconds with them - you would. I realized that there is no need to rush life, just sit back and enjoy it after I had my little guy! All the best to you, David and Noah!
