Four Years Strong

It's been almost two years since my last blog post. It's hard to believe how quickly time has passed and I'm even embarrassed that I haven't been writing consistently in my blog. I created this website during the COVID pandemic, while quarantining with my sons at home. So much has happened since that time and I definitely thought about getting back to writing but just didn't get to it. I can go on and on about why I didn't, but the important thing is that I'm ready now to get back where I left off. There's been a few changes since my last post, for starters, Noah's health is stable and has improved to some extent. He's had about four or five hospitalizations last year, but he is doing well. He's made some great accomplishments in the last year, one of them was walking. My little superhero has been walking without assistance since April of 2021 and started preschool a few months ago. He loves school and although he is still not talking, he is able to sound out some words and also colors. I think the word that melted my heart the most was when he said "mum" for the first time. Hearing his sweet little voice call me mom is a feeling that I can't describe. It's like hearing someone you love to say "I love you"...it's just lets me know that he knows exactly who I am. It's amazing what something so small can mean to us. I know that his development is definitely delayed but baby steps are better than no steps if you ask me. In our family, we make sure to celebrate the big things and also the little things. In a few weeks Noah will be celebrating his 4th birthday and each year around this time, I get so emotional. I am incredibly thankful to have him in my life and despite the ups and downs, I couldn't imagine life without him. He is our joy, our reminder, our hopes and dreams. Not only has Noah grown but it's crazy how our social media platform has also grown. To see the number of followers worldwide that we inspire and bring awareness to brings a special feeling to my heart. I was broken when I started this journey and now, I am helping other broken parents with their journey. It is a role that I do not take lightly and feel a great obligation to continue as long as God gives me the ability to. We have overcome so much. We've been through the ups and downs, we've learned and grown and love...but in the overall, we are 4 years strong!
