Dear Noah: Separation Anxiety


Dear Noah,

Things have certainly been changing in the Horton household.

I leave the room. You cry. 

I put you down. You cry.

My always-happy, always-sweet baby pushes people away and reaches for me.

Only me.

Even though I put you down, I leave the room, to teach you that I'll always come back -- always --

I want you in my arms just as much.

I know there will come a time when you'll push away from me, reaching for your independence.

And I'll understand.

But there was a time, Noah, when you didn't want to let me go.

I love you more each day.
