He loves you, even if you’re a Nobody

Lately Noah has taken to being unbearably adorable, which I have to say, I’m a big fan of.  He loves to see if he can get Rosie to stop crying if she’s stranded in the Saucer of Solitary Confinement.  This activity gets my Big Fat Seal of Approval.  He is almost always successful in this endeavor, usually employing the aid of a birthday card from his grandparents that plays the Superman theme in full orchestral score.  More than once I’ve been drying off from a shower to the soundtrack of Rosie’s displeasure and all of a sudden I hear trumpets ring out DUUUH DUN-NUH NUH NUUUH! DUN DUN DUN! and all wailing immediately ceases. I peek in the hall and see Noah in a spread legged stance with the flung open card in his outstretched arms and Rosie with her back arched and eyes wide, taking in the large muscled tights-clad man that is being thrust in her face.  Hey, whatever helps me start my day clothed.

Also, Noah full on cheered and clapped this morning, unprompted, when I informed him of the appearance of Rosie’s first tooth, yelling “Big girl!  Yay for Rosie!” while Rosie grinned and grinned, drooling and pleased as punch.  YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP, PEOPLE.

But one of my favorite activities of late is Noah’s interest in sitting quietly and drawing pictures for me, L, and Rosie.  He has a signature theme: a multicolored heart on tiny scraps of paper.  There are probably 15 of these on our refrigerator already, and every day he makes more, each one labeled “To Mom Form Noah” or “To Rosie” or just simply “Dad.” So I should not have been surprised in the least when the artistic joy just bubbled over him yesterday morning and at one sitting he made one for everyone in the family:

Hearts all around 1

And then, deciding he just had to get out that last bit of artistic generosity:

Nobody’s heart

Spread the love, little man.  Spread the love.
