19 months and a farewell

Happy 19 month day (yesterday), Noam!
 How has it almost been a full month since I saw this little man? He is just too cute and the videos, pics, and anecdotes I get daily just keep me smiling and laughing! He is ever the curious toddler and just too fun.  Just a few weeks ago, he managed to get the sugar bin off the pantry shelf, and was playing in it! Future cake boss?
 He's just always happy, or at least in 99% of the pictures I get, the other 1% he is either asleep or being a toddler! He is saying more words daily, including his name which sounds more like "umnom" but he's getting there!
Sadly this last month was also a sad one for Noam and family. Their beloved Rundi/Dundi succumbed to a weird autoimmune issue she developed.  Avi and Ben rescued Rundi almost 7 years ago and gave her such a great life, and she in return gave Noam a best friend. He may not have actual memories of his pup, but the photos and videos and stories we have will be told to him for years and years to come.
I love this video of the two of them, Noam was so little and Rundi so gentle. Rundi became like a second dog to me when my two pups finally passed on and I was just heartbroken when Avi told me the news. Rundi, I do miss you and will always remember you fondly. 

Noam, here is to another great month. Love you something super crazy Nomnom!

Poor Rundi. That is so sad. The shots of Noam are too cute. I love the phone shot. His expression is adorable.

How sad -- glad that Noam had a good friend and protector in his life up to now. Perhaps someday, another?
