Goodbye, Noah... (Part 3 of 3)

This is the third (and final, I promise) post of photos of Noah through the years. He's been doing really well at his apartment; I wish he'd contact me more often, but definitely didn't expect him to ;)  He really likes being on his own. It hit me hard a few days ago when I realized that Noah wasn't going to be coming home from work and letting Joey outside before bed. Noah would always be the one to let Joey out at night because of the time he got home from work.

Anyway, it's been emotional, like I said, and I've let the emotions get the better of me when it comes to eating. I'll write more about that tomorrow, though. For now, here are the final pictures of Noah in his 19-years of living at home...

...and that's all. One of the cutest kids ever who grew up so much faster than I was ready for. <3


  1. What a good kid! And such a mini Jerry!

  2. Thank you for sharing this with US 🫶♥️
    I have 3 boys and I never experienced that (for what ever reason) but I do feel the emptiness.

  3. You did a good job, Mom and Dad! Be proud. Independence is a true accomplishment.

  4. Thanks for sharing - looks like he has some good memories to look back on as well!

  5. My oldest is still struggling to find his wings and with housing prices what they are...who knows when he will. My youngest moved into her first apartment for college in Aug, but is home for a month right now so it doesn't feel too permanent yet even though I would not be surprised if she never really moves back home. Loved this trip down memory lane. Hugs mamma!

  6. Oh, momma. Great work. You did your job which is, sadly, to work yourself out of a job. Big hugs.

  7. This was so sweet! You made me a little teary eyed! I've been following your blog since 2012 (!!) so I kind of feel like I watched Noah grow up! You did an amazing job raising an incredible son! You should feel very proud!! <3


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
