My little NoelMN is EIGHT! (dial-up [and sappiness] warning).
This morning when I brought him to school he told me I could come into the building to help him carry his birthday treat to his classroom, but I would have to "act normal." sigh. How quickly the days seem to pass...

The boy at four months (excuse the bad pic- he wasn't actually violet-tinged.)


Three years old




Almost four- meeting his baby sister:


My big kid.


I thought by this age, little boys were all rough-and-tumble, and weren't so prone to show affection as younger boys, but Noel has pleasantly surprised me. He's loving, kind, thoughtful, self-sacrificing, and compassionate, and I hope it's okay that I feel the need to brag on him, on his birthday. I'm so proud of what exceptional human being he is, I just had to share! :loveya:

2. Thanks! The neighborhood girls like him a *whole* lot.
:eyes:
They'll make up any excuse to come knock on our door, so they can leer around and try see if he's in the house. It's cute now, but yeah, in a few years it could be a bit scary.

5. I don't THINK I embarrassed him...
But he did walk about five feet behind me, so who knows! :rofl:

4. Looks like quite a hitter, too.
The Twinkies could use a bat in the middle of the order; especially considering Morneau's gonna break himself by June.

6. He IS a good hitter!
Last year, there was alot of wincing when he was up to bat. He can hit REALLY hard, but he didn't aim so well at first. :scared: :rofl:

7. Those 3 year old pics look really classic
aside from the microbus headlights they could be from anytime in the last century. Great shots.

Happy Birthday to the little crumb factory.
