Noah WesLee Sisemore FIRST Chinese New Year Celebration with his Family!
Here is our Table! We set a place for Grandma even though she is still in the nursing home's rehab program right now :) We will take her new chopsticks to her up there :) I tried to kinda make it look festive with what I was able to find in town and all :) We had some decorations around and such as well :) I plan to search online for next year and see what all else is available :)
Noah chowin down on the noodles! His favorite part of the meal! :)
It was important to me that we try to eat this meal the way Noah would if he were still in Taiwan so MOST of us ate with chopsticks! LOL no wonder they are so little over there! heeheee :) just kidding. Of course Noah is not ready for chopsticks so as you saw above he used his hands :) On Jon and Kate plus 8 her toddlers had chopsticks that were for little ones and joined together at the top or something. I WANT to find those for Noah soon :)
I FINALLY DID IT! I got a peice of chicken! :)
Jei Jei doing well! You can't see but Nannie decided to use a fork! :) Said she was too old to learn to use chopsticks and she was starving and needed nourishment! heehee
Daddy goes at it like a pro! :) He was stationed in Korea for a time and I know he traveled quite a bit in Asia at that time so he has previous experience :)
He took the dollar out, handed it to me and went back in looking for more! heehee :)
another shot of Noah and Daddy! check out the toys peeking out! :) The outfit was too big but that is ok! We did the best we could to keep it up so he could wear it! :) Was a gift from a friend :) I think he will get some more years of wear out of that outfit :)
My Sweet Panda Boy! :) He has no clue why we are standing him in front of the door with decorations and saying smile Noah! LOL
Celeste (Jei Jei) got cute with the fans from the table! :) She got pics of EVERYBODY like this :) heehee
I LOVE this shot of Noah! You can see his little runny nose and his cheeks all rough and chapped again. That happens every time he is sick! The doctor says he has Allergy induced asthma and she thinks it is from the change from Taiwan to the states. He is on medication and she thinks he will outgrow it!
Here is a shot of Noah and Jei Jei bein silly right before bedtime :)
Well that was the end of January with our Chinese New Year Celebration :) and we Welcomed February with a Super Bowl Party at Church! Noah's first Super Bowl with daddy! And YES I know the team he is wearing was NOT in the super bowl! lol but I had to go with what I had! It was really cute because Sara Jane came dressed in a cheerleader outfit for the same team Noah had his football outfit on from :) So of course the mama's got out the camera's :) They looked like the paparazzi was on them :) heehee
Noah was NOT happy I put him down! This is the BEST shot :)
another shot with daddy
Noah and Mama
Tried to get a shot of Noah and Jei jei :) He as wanting me! He has been even clingier than normal for him lately! I just keep remembering that if he needs me, he needs me! I mean he has only been home 4 and half months, if he was a 4 and a half month old baby and cried for me I would go to him immediatly! That is where we are with him :) I told our home study folks that is you took away every person, sight, smell, taste, place, and thing I had ever known for 4 and a half months you would find me in the nut house! I think he is doing pretty amazing to be honest! :) I just love love it when he snuggels close to me :) He is so sweet when he lifts those adorable arms up to me for me to pick him up and hold him :)
Well, now if you read this far THANKS and congrats! lol :)
We send you blessings and Kisses in the Wind!
