Happy Birthday Noah/Old Photo Friday

Noah was born Jan 28th 1998 5lbs 14oz.
Noah decided to come 2 weeks early we had no idea there was anything wrong with him at this time.
Although we have since found out that Noah's fingers  and toes were still blue after 10min. at birth and no oxygen was given to him at that time.  We believe because of this he has CP.
1 month old
 Noah was such a good baby. He would hardly ever cry. He did have problems with eating. I would feed him for a hour. ( He would eat 2oz.) and we would sleep an hour. We did this for months.
6 months
At 4m old he had hernia surgery and weighed 9lbs. At this time we took him to see a endocrinologist to see if there was a reason he was having trouble gaining weight. They tested him for Parader Willie. They found nothing.
1 year old
 At one year old Noah weighed 12 lbs and still could not sit or hold his own head.

18 months
When Noah was 15 months old he was diagnosed with Trisomy 8. That was the hardest day. With this diagnosis we found out that there is whole list of things that should be wrong with Noah. Such as, no knee caps, deep set eyes, full lips and there are many others.  Noah has none of these.  His main problem is his CP.
3 years
When Noah was 3 years old he had surgery to correct his eyes and he had his second surgery for tubes in his ears.
 Noah  got his wheelchair when he was 3.
He also started preschool.
5 yrs
 Noah had his G-tube put in when he was 5yrs old. Besides tasting things Noah is still fed mostly by his G-Tube using a blenderized diet.
 When Noah was 8 years we were able to provide HBOT for him.
Right before Noah turned 10 years old we started  ABR. By far the best thing we ever did for Noah.
Noah you are a true blessing in our family. None of us would be the same without you.
Happy birthday, Noah!!!!!!
We love you.

I'm Your Biggest Fan

 Noah loves going to the basketball games and getting high fives from the players.

 It means a lot to us that the boys take the time to make Noah feel  just like
 any other kid at the game.
 He absolutely loves getting high fives from all the players.

This what the boys see after they give Noah his high five,
I hope they realize how much Noah loves it.
He may sit quietly in the corner of the gym during the game but, he still is your #1 Fan.

Thanks boys for putting a smile on Noah's face and making him feel just like all the other kids on the court.

On Monday Noah recieved his new shoes from Peach's Neet Feet
Noah was so excited and in awe of his new shoes.

They were painted just for him

They included some of his favorite things.

This morning I was asking Noah if he wanted to wear his new shoes.

He got very excited and said yes. ( eye blink)

Noah loves his new shoes. Thank you Madison of Peach's Neet Feet.
The young lady that paints the shoes is from New Mexico.
Go check out her website:
She finds people to sponsor a child and than paints the shoes
