At my niece Emsley's birthday party last weekend, Noah really wanted to sit on the stairs while Em opened her presents. Uncle Spencer decided to sit with him and let Noah wear his hat.
Noah seemed skeptical. He wasn't sure he wanted this big hairy guy sitting on his stairs. But he did share his hat. And apparently, this hat is magical.
Now, let me just say, this hat is truly disgusting. It's covered in layers of dirt and sweat, and apparently the smell of it is mesmerizing. Noah sat there for the longest time just looking at Spencer, then looking back at us, without moving or making a sound. He seemed to be in some kind of trance. We knew he liked hats, but not quite this much. He decided that Uncle Spencer could stay on his stairs. As long as the hat stayed with him.
