Noah Meets Elmo

Bookmark and Share

To help raise funds for Children's Miracle Network, Costco had picture day with Elmo. Of course we had to take Noah to get his picture taken with his favorite little red monster. I wasn't sure if Noah would react the same way to a real live Elmo like he did with Santa Claus, but Noah clearly knew who Elmo was and thought it was wonderful.

Noah was a little unsure of Elmo when he was being held on his own. I think he thought Elmo might drop him, since he doesn't sit like regular babies he went a bit sideways and it caught him off guard. But he looked up at Elmo after the picture was taken and then decided to smile once he knew he was secure and not going to tumble.

Both our hearts were flooded with joy simultaneously as we watched our little sweet Noah fall in love with seeing a real Elmo. It's the simple joys we enjoy so much, and to watch his little face light up and hear that sigh of happiness in his voice makes for the best day. Chris and I are so blessed with these tiny treasures that each day can bring.

Noah has also been having a blast playing in his dried macaroni and beans. He loves to squish them under his feet and attempt to grab handfuls at the same time. I think it is helping his sensory issues as I am now able to occasionally put his feet in the grass or touching concrete without him crying in a sort of fear of the sensation.
