Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

Jumpin Jupiter!!! Playdate Fiasco...

Today Noah and I went to a preview class at a place in a neighboring town for Kindermusik! :) Noah was quite overwhelmed and overstimulated I fear! We actually previewed 2 different classes in a row as he is right on the cusp of being in either one. Oldest in one group or youngest in the other. By the end of the 2nd class he was kinda gettin into it as they do similar things just the 2nd one is a bit more involved. I think Noah is going to love it :) I do NOT have pictures of us in class because I was busy with a clinging vine most of the class. I will try eventually to get some pics if I can figure out how while I am doing it with him. Maybe I can work it out to have someone go with me at some point. I do want some of us both doing it so we will see. Here are some cute shots of us waiting in the car for the door to open! :) I do have some news :) I am ALMOST POSITIVE Noah said Yay today! :) In class when we cheered! He also appears to be saying Ears! :) He will practically pull your ears off! heehee but it really sounds like he is sayin Ears when he does. It is not clear but it sounds like he is saying it!

He just smiles so much with those gorgeous eyes! :)

Big grin! :) That's my boy!

I just thought this was adorable! it is hard to get good pics with him in my lap in the driver's seat while we were parked in parking lot but they may be close but still are adorable :)

After Kindermusik, Noah and I met Bobby and picked up Samuel who Bobby had acquired after we left and I took the boys on a playdate with my friend Cassie and her 13 month old Caleb. It is rare she has time to do something but had a break today! We went to a new local play place today called Jumpin Jupiter! It is a room with colorful rubbery floors and like bouncy houses with slides and obstacle courses and things like that. It has a play house and some riding toys. The thing is there is a certain amount of noise in the room to make these 6 or so blow up bouncy play things blow up and we walk in the door and Noah starts SCREAMIN! It TOTALLY freaked him out! I think the noise scared him. We only stayed 45 minutes and the lady was SHOCKED when we left so soon because it is a set price no matter how long you stay so she probably thought we did not get money worth. We had to really work with Noah to get him to even try and have fun. I am not sure I can say he ever really had fun because it just really seemed to make him nervous though he did calm down on and off and try a couple things. I had contemplated having his birthday party there next month. Boy and I glad I had decided against it already cuz I would have been out deposit money. Here are a few pictures of our first trip to jumpin jupiter. We are suppose to have a play date with a young girl and her toddler next week there but I am gonna have to see if we can do something else cuz I just dont think Noah is ready for this place yet.

We spent alot of time doing this. I would put him down to try to get him to do something and he wanted no part of it!

Here is the door he kept goin too. A couple times folks came in and he tried to leave! I probably should have just left immediatly but I kept thinking once I got in the bouncy's with him and showed him he would love them but nope.

arms up again! but you can see here he is watchin what Caleb and Sam are doing! CALEB LOVED IT! crawled ALLLL over the place with a smile plastered on his face! :)

Here they are in the little house they had! I am determined to find a good deal on one of these! Even nervous and all Noah loved this house! :) I want one for him at home! :) Samuel is in the house with him and Caleb is crawling in and that is cassie talkin to them :)

The BRIEF stay on one of the riding toys!

on a bouncy with Cassie but not happy bout it!

Mama and Noah bouncin :) you can tell we are in motion. lol LOOK at my glasses! heehee and my hair! NOT a becoming picture of me but the CLOSEST Noah got to smiling the whole time! :)
It saddens me that he did not enjoy it because there is just so few play places here to begin with and nothing really toddler oriented so I was so hoping he would like this one. There were other toddlers there during the tiem we went when big kids are in school but apparently it is not for Noah at this point! The search for an amazing play place HE will love continues :)
I got a call from Early Steps and Noah will begin Speech April 14th. For 3 months it will be once a week. At that point if the therapist can show why he would need it he can go up to 2 days a week. He will begin occupational therapy once a week in a week or so. and he will continue with Maria his Special Therapist who works on all areas on Monday afternoons! :) They are really workin to help us with Noah! They are also trying to get us some more copies of Signing time! :) He has done very well with the one we have :) I am excited! Well, I best get off here and finish what I must so I can sleep while the sleepin is good!
WE send you blessings and Kisses in the Wind!

Noah has been diagnosed with Eczema! Poor guy! At least we finally have a reason for his constant itchy skin and rashes and such and the specialist seems to know what she is doing! AND I GET TO BATHE him daily again! The old pediatrician told me I was bathing him too much and making his skin dry. so she said every other night, that didn't work, so she said less baths and on and on. Poor Noah. I know how much a nice bath makes me feel better! So anyway he now is to have a warm (not hot , not cold) bath daily and have cream rubbed on him from top to bottom! :) Baby massage :) He loves it as we already have done one rub down :) Anyway I am so happy to be able to bathe him more regular and feel lke a better mom and to help his itching would make me feel so much better :) He has to have special soap, special cream, etc but it is all worth it to give him the sweet soft non itchy baby skin he deserves! :) I fixed the video in the St. Patrick's Day post so yall can scroll down and see it now. Sorry bout that. Computer went nutty. No pics right now but I will have some more soon! We are off after nap to check out a bakery for Noah's birthday cake! His birthday is coming april 19th! :) HE WILL BE 2!!!! Can you believe it? Seems like he wont be a baby anymore then but he is still MY BABY!

We send you blessings and KISSES IN THE WIND!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! :) Being a family with a large amount of Irish in us we are big on St. Patrick's Day! :) We joked today that now that Noah was part of our family he was Irasian! :) heehee One thing for sure that he is, is a McCutie :) I love the little outfit I got him for today! :) We have all had our fill or our Irish meal today :) I made Corn Beef with potatoes, carrots and celery and our peanut butter sauce that goes with it and we had potatoe rolls! :) AFter supper some friends came by after Bobby had to go to work and we had chocolate cake adn strawberrry pie for dessert :) It was a yummy day though not good at all for the waist line. Here are some pictures and a video to share. Noah is hard hard to get pics of now! He will turn and you get an ear, the back of his head, or he just stares, but smile for camera NOPE. Noah has had a fussy day on and off as you can tell from the video, he laughs and he fusses. I have been told to try and get him to tell me in some way what he wants rather than just pick him up so you will see some of that in the video. He is such a funny little guy, I wish I could get that more on video but it is like he knows I am taping and does not want me to at times! Pray for Noah as he is having a rough night and was up about an hour after he went down and cried and cried and did not want to be rocked or anything and he pushed me away when I tried to rub his cheek which he usually likes. I am not sure if it is teeth or what. He has his first molars all comeing in but 2 are halfway through and the others have just broken through so maybe they are still hurting as they come more and more in. Poor guy. Also he was very burpy which is unusual for him. I did finally get him back down but I am worried about him :( Praying he feels better in the morning. We go to the skin doctor tomorow about his dry dry skin and rashes. anyway without further ado, pics and video below :)

Mr. McCutie aka Panda Boy! :) MY BABY BOY! What a face :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! :) The banner hangin between dining area and living room! :)

lol, we are so into our tongue now! He will pull me to him to kiss me and kiss me ane then stick that tongue out! lol he is a character! :)

Here is our front glass door with shamrocks aplenty! :)

Naptime! :) Rocked to sleep with mama! :) I LOVE this time of day :)

This is Noah with his friend Samuel! Now this was a comedy me tryin to get a good picture of the 2 of them! THIS is the best and Noah's eyes look wonky! :) Half the time he was getting up during the shot! He did not want to sit and pose! lol

Jei Jei, Daddy and Noah! :) All in there green! :)

this is me trying to get a shot of the onsie shirt! :) The only way I could get him to be still and see what is said! :) He is layin on my legs in my lap in the recliner :) He was smiling so big RIGHT BEFORE and RIGHT AFTER the picture! ugggh!

Supper Table set! as you can see my 20 year old is dyslexic in alot of things! Look at the silver ware! No matter how many times I tell her how to do it she almost always does it backwards and then is like huh! lol

By the time we got the camera durin supper Noah was throwing an Irish/Asian FIT! Not sure exactly what set him off but he is furious with us because we won't let him throw the plate! He has tried just as Celeste ran to get the camera so she came back to this face! :( Tears my heart out to hear him cry but I just dont think I can approve of THROWING plates! It is his new thing! You never know when, sometimes its 2 seconds into a meal, sometimes midway, sometimes at the end but he is into throwing the plate and the bottle! Lotsa training ahead of me I think!

This is Noah with my friend Tina! It was so funny, He went up to her and reached for her which is not the norm for him, especially with someone he does not know well. He has not seen her in a good while so I was shocked! So she starts doing itsy bitsy spider with him and he gets this look like what have I done! heehee He wanted up there and then was not sure why! :) go figure!

Ok, so I tried all day to get him to wear this little hat I got him and before I could get a picture every time it was off, but then tonight after he was in jammas he starts hammin it up with the hat! :) it was really cute with the hat and his st. paddy's day outfit :)

So cute :)

Where's Noah! :) Its a bit big! :) heehee

Top of the mornin to ya! :)

Tipping head back to try and hold it on! :) heehee

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
