Noah is doin so good :) I thought I would share a few pics and a bit about things here with the Family Four! :) Noah has discovered he can climb under the coffee table! :) He thinks the shelf is built JUST for him :) heehee
Now he realizes Mama saw him ! :)
Jei Jei went out of town last weekend and had her first trip to IKEA. She bought Noah a Christmas Present, then proceeded to give it to him the night she got home! heehee :) Here they are playing with this little toy that has a hammer! Noah has AMAZING social skills. He would tap on it a bit, hand her th ehammer and have her tap a bit and back and forth they went!
Noah then decides Mama needed to play too! I LOVE this shot of him headed to ME with the Hammer! :)
He came to me and then in a bit headed back to Jei Jei and fell into her and got her right between the eyes with the hammer! She is rethinking buyin baby bro a hammer! :) heehee She is fine but it did lump up on her :(
We have been spending some time trying to get Noah used to his crib. He actually has shown a bit of interest in it on his own when we walk by a few times so we will put him in when he does. here are a couple of him in it!
It never lasts too long before he is fussin to get out but a little at a time!
I have started layin him in the crib at nap time after we rock to sleep! I laid a bottle in there with him because he will wake up a night cryin and a I give him a bottle so we thought maybe he would take the bottle if he woke up in the crib. Well, he wont. He wakes up as one mad little Panda Boy and throws said bottle at US! Here he is actually SLEEPING IN the crib!
This was yesterday. Like I said he woke up very upset. But Mama decided we had to try again today and I did. Well today he woke up screaming and started standing up. So I go to him and just about get him, he runs from me backwards in crib and THROWS himself backwards and smackes his head on the end of the crib. I scoop him up and he is still screaming and wont look at me. I am talkin to him and telling him its ok and huggin on him and all. He looks left and right and all around like he is totally disoriented but wont look at me at all. Wont respond to anything. VERY Strange :( He is totally wigged out and also won't let me put him down. It was dreadful. I just finally held him and rocked him and prayed. He went back to sleep on my shoulder for a bit and woke up again crying. After awhile he was all smiled again but I think he is angry at me for putting him in the crib.
Tonight was our last night to spend as a family and do anything before Bobby goes back to work Thursday. Tomorow night is Church so tonight was the last free one. Well, Bobby, Celeste, Noah and I all went on a picnic for Supper! We went to the Fountains downtown in a neighboring town! These were the SAME fountains that we all went to on our first date! Bobby and I and all 10 chaperones! heehee It was really really neat bein there tonight as a family. The place it kinda all began. Without that we would not have been a couple to get married and adopt Noah so it was kinda emotional for mama
Here is Noah in his stroller on the way to picnic tables! He LOVES outside! This is the FIRST time he has stayed in his stroller HAPPY! He did the entire time we were there! I was so thankful because it is close to the road and I was fearful to have him out toddlin round.
Here is Bobby and I with Noah in stroller in the EXACT spot of our First Picture together! :) It was a group photo taken the night of the first date!
Here is Bobby and I in front of some of the actual fountains! On the night of the first date everyone was runnin through these fountains and Bobby and I just walked and talked! Bobby says it was here at the fountains where he KNEW that He was gonna marry me! We visited it several times durin our courtship.
We did not know Celeste was takin this picture! :)
This is on the EXACT spot that Bobby first asked me for a kiss and I said NO! lol and the exact spot he proposed the FIRST time and I said I can't answer you yet! heehee He did FINALLY get a kiss on this spot, but tonight Noah got all the kisses! :) He was like what are y'all doin??
Here is a picture of The Family Four on the same spot!
Poor Noah! He has to wonder what on earth these crazy people are doing! :)
It is SOOOO hard to get a good smiling picture of this boy! He smiles ALL the time, which is funny since that was one of my huge worries that he would not be able to smile or didnt connect enough to smile because the udpate pics were not smiling! Well, He is so darn curious! You pull the camera out and he notices and he is all into the camera! Anyway, He is a smiley guy and I just totally MELT every time he smiles! :) I do the same when he cries :( I HATE it. I will tell you this little guy can scream like he is bein skinned because you put him down, or he has to sit in car seat or whatever. Yesterday I was drivin with him alone and he was screamin like nuts. I kept drivin faster and faster tryin to get home quicker and get him out of seat. I was cryin myself because he was so upset and so wanted me to pick him up. I finally get where I am off the interstate and get to yard and stop and get him out of his seat real quick and he stops cryin IMMEDIATLY and there as NOT one tear in his eyes! LOL Here it sounded as if he was sobbin and sobbin! and he was SCREAMIN but not cryin. He is somethin else :) I JUST LOVE HIM SO MUCH!
Well, I am so exhuasted and I need to get off here quickly and hopefully get an hour of sleep before he wakes up. That seems to be his hardest thing in his adjustment. Sleep. He totally wants me to HOLD him and him not touch the bed. He thrashes in his sleep and he will wake alot and cry and cry :( I keep prayin he will have more peaceful sleep.
Well, hugs to all
We send y'all kisses in the wind!
