Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

Noah is published! and other Panda Boy news!

Well, I can barely believe it but yesterday was ONE MONTH exactly since Noah WesLee Sisemore was placed in my arms for the VERY FIRST TIME! He is FOREVER my baby boy! :) Even when he is 50 he will still be MY BABY BOY! :) It is so hard to believe it has been an entire month, but at the same time it just feels like he has ALWAYS been with us. He has been in our hearts so much longer than that! Yesterday we spent the afternoon and evening at Church. We have a little group at our Church called Lagniappe. Yesterday was our first Wednesday to go. It was a beautiful fallish day and we were outside the whole afternoon! Then we all eat supper at Church together and then we have our Wednesday Night services! :) What a special way to spend our month anniversary! Several folks had not seen Noah yet so it was very fun for them to meet him for the first time! :) There are a few more Lagniappe families that were out that will meet Noah next week. :) Last night was also the first night that Noah and Mama went in the Toddler Class at Church after Praise and Worship! It was not really planned but Panda Boy was cranky and disrupting the class I was in so I took him in there and stayed with him and he did so well! It is so fun to watch him and he actually got down and played at my feet and even ventured just a tad away from me a few times :) so sweet :) When we got home from Church Noah was sound asleep and when I took him out of the car he stayed asleep! NEVER happened before! :) So I come in and my mother is awake! Which was odd! She is all excited and is like guess what, guess what! Well turns out Aunt Dorothy and Aunt Liz (My mother's sister and her daughter :) have been VERY busy bees! :) My mother gets her hometown newspaper still and so they had a surprise for all of us in the latest edition! Noah has been published! Check it out!!!! :)

They did this a TOTAL surprise :) We were so thrilled and excited :) To keep it a surprise they went from memory and did not ask any questions so my mother in law's name in actually Alice so the blogger world knows :) and yes Noah's Middle name is WesLee not Wesley for those who may be now questioning yourself! Leave it to me to do everything funky so noone knows how to spell it :) But he is named after so many folks I needed the spelling to fit all them :) Aunt Dorothy is suppose to send me a copy as well to keep! :) My mom is framing hers and I just might do the same! I wish I could get it bigger and I would frame it and hang it next to my Grandaddy Bell's Picture in my living room which is goin to be hung not far from my BEAUTIFUL shelf that my Uncle Harold made and gave me :) I did fine seeing the announcment and was very excited! Even to the point I kinda hooped and woke up poor Noah! But anyway I was all happy and excited until I got the the part about my late grandparents and then I just bawled!!! They woudl have SOOO loved Panda Boy! Though My grandfather would have told me to get a girl so she would never have to go to war! He was always worried about the boys havin to go to war. I think he had some very traumatic experiences in his war days :(
Anyway, below are some pictures of Noah and Mama's first time playing in the toddler room! :)

Noah LOVES Elmo! We have actually seen this phone and played with it in the package at both WalMart and Big lots! He was so excited to play with the Churchs and actually have it out of package! :)
One of Noah's little playmates at Church Sara Jane taught him to cook! :) He just LOVED this play pot and spoon and played at my feet with it for the LONGEST time! I am shocked by his attention span for a 17 month old!
Here is Noah and that is Miss Sara Jane in Mrs. Cassie's lap
I thought he looked so adorable in his overhalls and his little shoes I took this full body shot! You can't really see it but his shoes have trains on the side of them :) so adorable
It is so funny to me because we have Noah 17 months, Sara Jane 20 months, and Alana 23 months old and Caleb 7 months old. All these little ones :) Noah really seemed comforable with all the girls! Just like at SLC where he had all these girl friends! He better watch it when Caleb gets big enough to give him a run for his money! heehee
At Lagniape he was enthralled with my friend Sarah's daughter RUBY! Miss Ruby is 3 and Noah woudl go up and take her hand and hold it and want to walk with her :) Not sure he knows what to think of little children just a few years older than him. I am not sure he has ever seen anything but babies and adult ladies before!
I wish I had gotten some pictures of our outside time because he so loved it but I was not thinkin pics at that point, just was watchin him and enjoyin the wonderful weather and fellowship for friends and showin off my baby boy!
Well, Panda Boy and the rest of us send you blessings and Kisses in the Wind!
{ I have to tell y'all how I just tear up ever time I say that now! I just love the fact that after so long of sending NOAH kisses in the wind across the globe now he is here to kiss and snuggle in person and now we send them out to all of you friends and family out there! :)}

What a blessing to have Panda Boy published! And yes, I was one of your readers wondering about WesLee! Just send Panda Boy a package and from the looks of his style and size, I think some of Peyton's stuff will work out great for you! Hugs, Tiff

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
