|Lilly meets Funcle Noah for the first time|

Noah is our youngest, our baby, and it feels like we blinked, like he grew into this funny, smart, kind, driven, remarkable human faster than we could register.
That’s how time works when you’re having fun, though. It moves fast. It’s filled with rich memories. And when you’re this guy’s parent, it changes you for the better - as it does everyone lucky enough to have been connected with him.
If you know him, you love him. And in this photo taken just last month, Lilly is learning this first-hand as she meets her Funcle Noah for the first time. Just as we surrounded him with family from the moment he first arrived, he now does the same for her.
It’s been a big year for him - studying at university, moving into his first apartment, working at a job he loves - and we know the coming year will be filled with even more opportunity and change. That’s how he operates, though, filling each day with things, and moments and people, that (and who) matter.
Today we’ll celebrate him with cake and candles and somewhat harmonized song. But here’s the thing with Noah: he makes every day worthy of celebrating. From spontaneous dinners and texted song recos to hugging his mom and being there for his beloved sibs, he’ll turn the ordinary into a moment worth holding onto.
He’s learned well. Happy birthday, not-so-little-anymore-man. Know you’re loved.
