About 2 weeks ago Noah started to smile in response to us. Well... really he loves to smile at Marc and Jordie. I have tried and tried to capture this darling smile on camera but have failed miserably. Marc was able to capture Mr. Noah Smiling last night. I am thrilled to present this smile to the world...

Is he not just so worth the wait?!?!?!

I am so jealous! I have wanted to adopt a AA baby for a while now. I wish that we lived closer so that I could play with that little guy!

Have you heard this adoption poem?? I love it!!

Once there were two women, neither knew the other
One you do not remember, the other you call mother.
One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name
One gave you the seed of talent, the other gave you an aim.
Two very different lives shaped yours into one
One became your guiding star, the other was your sun.
One gave you emotions, and one calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried your tears.
The first gave you life, the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it.
One gave you up—it was all that she could do,
The other prayed for a child—God led her straight to you.
And now you ask me through your tears,
The age-old question of all the years,
Heredity or Environment, which are you a product of?
Neither darling, neither ... just two different kinds of Love.

He absolutely WAS worth the wait. What a handsome little guy! I'm so happy to see you have a blog!!

He is adorable. And he looks like he is finely managed by his big sister and brothers. What a beautiful family you have. Just where has all the time gone? It seems like yesterday you were pregnant with Jordan. :)

Oh my gosh He's Adorable! Is it bad to say that I've always wanted a black baby! Congratulations! I need to call sometime and find out how life is with 4 and how the adoption happened. And yes, the Symber comment was pretty good... I quite like Jason Castro as well. 2 things you should check out on the net. #1 Since you like island mellow music (ie: Jason Castro) you might like a friend of ours. Do a search for Cubworld (Myspace). #2 Do a Youtube search for "Charlie Bit Me". Its 2 kids and its HILARIOUS. I think anyway! Anyway, your great! Enjoy your blog!
