Dear Noah

Thanks for keeping me sane today. Even though you followed me around the house and talked my ear off all day. You're good company. And some days, your 6-year old conversations are as close to an adult conversation as I get.

Today you were so helpful with Avery when she was so fussy. You are always great with your baby sister. You run and get things for me whenever I need help with her and you sit and keep her happy when I'm busy with something else. And she loves you.

Today you helped me do about 6 loads of laundry. Just because you wanted to. It was nice to have your company while we folded. In between loads we played the Wii together. Thanks for improving my golf game - you were a patient teacher when I was frustrated.

Then, when I needed a break this evening and tried to escape to the tv all by myself you joined me. But that was ok because you snuggled me and we watched "Tuck Everlasting" and it was fun.

Noah, I love you always. But I gotta say 6-year old Noah is pretty great. It might just be my favorite you so far.

Love Mom

I think 6 year old Noah is pretty awesome too. He is so sweet with my kids and so patient and funny. I don't want my kids to grow up, but 6 sounds pretty great to me!

I think Noah at any age is pretty fantastic, but he sure does sound amazing at 6!
