Happy Birthday, beautiful boy

Noah will officially turn 15 at 7:11 p.m. (technically that's Central Time). I cannot think of his newborn days without thinking of this song. The two of us danced around our Texas living room to the beautiful words and melody by John Lennon, with me crying the whole time. Even now, tears are rolling down my face as I listen to it while posting. It reminds me of those early days, my first days as a mother, and it reminds me how quickly life passes us by if we're not careful to pay attention, and even if we are.

Happy Birthday, darling Noah. Here's our song. (I've threatened to dance to it with him at his wedding some day.)

We used to listen to this song before bedtime when the boys were little. We still listen to it from time to time and they love it almost as much as I do. Michelle D
