Noah. A Baby Story.

Or sweet Noah Ravenel was born January 10th – just a day after his due date – at 2:40a.m… I can’t describe how much his arrival has changed me already – in less than two short weeks. I didn’t know how instantly I would love him. The second I saw him was a feeling I’ll never forget.

So perfect.

So sweet.

So new.

I just want to cry when I look at him. And I don’t think it’s “just hormones” … it’s the fact that I’ve been entrusted with this amazing and beautiful gift. An 8 pound 2 ounce gift that likes to be wide awake at 11:00 at night (and 2am, and 4am)…

… that looks just like his daddy and just like me all at the same time

… that makes the sweetest little sounds in his sleep

… that has changed my life in a hundred ways already.

I’m so thankful. I’m so in love. I can’t get enough of him!

Jonathan is already proving himself (again) to be the most amazing man on earth… Aside from being a wonderful daddy, he has cleaned, cooked, changed diapers, and massaged my feet :) He’s also responsible for most of the photos below. I wanted photos of Noah’s arrival so bad but we never designated anybody to come with us and document. We took my camera bag to the hospital and, after all the pushing, Jonathan shot these photos.
