Eli Reading

Maybe not so much reading but more "really good memory"

But cute none the less.

a blustery day

When my brothers and I were younger, we'd watch a bunch of Winne the Pooh videos on raining boring afternoons.
I love "Winnie the Pooh and The Blustery Day" because of all the episodes we watched this one had the best narrative... a nice smooth transition from blustery day to blustery/rainy/flooding night full of heffalumps and woozels and the residents of the Hundred Acre Woods trying to get out of the flood to safety. Even now as I am 24 years old when I experience a particularly windy day (much like today) I'll think to myself... "Boy, today is a blustery day!" Which then of course reminds me of those little stuffed animals playing and getting themselves into a tizzy, of Piglet's scarf unraveling and he inadvertently becoming a kite, and how the wind is scary but exhilarating at the same time.

{mental note... find that old vhs tape for my boys to watch on today's "blustery" day}

who knew?

For most of Noah's crawling career the kitchen/dining room has been quarantined for fear of him slamming his delicate little head onto the new hardwood floors. I recently torn down the barrier and expanded his horizons to the dining room (the kitchen still holds too many scary adversaries). So where has he been? Gleefully crawling all over his newly acquired domain. Theres really nothing in there but he is SO entertained by this new artificial wood surface to explore. He will spend his entire day in there. No toys, just roaming the floor... if I knew this was the way to keep him happy I would have tossed him in there much sooner. :)

my noodle

Wow, 8 months has just flown by. Heres what our little Noodle has been up to.

Has four teeth, and uses them,

Crawling, standing, and cruizing,

Waves to his adoring fans,

He has started saying Mama and Baba,

He calls Eli "Gaga" (mostly because it annoys the daylights outta Eli)

Enjoys chasing his Gaga all over the house,

And as typical with all my childeren is a TOTAL sucker for his daddy.

We LOVE our Noodle Noah.

Its Official

I hinted at it in a previous blog
But I thought I should make a more forward announcement...
We are pregnant!
New brother or sister will be joining us in July.
Eli is very excited
(or just thinks baby Noah is going back)
Im hoping for a girl to balance out the testosterone in my home.

So Eric got me a new notebook laptop for Christmas, its so cute.

One of my favorite features is the webcam that it has built in. Eli thinks its just hilarious.

Ignore my retardedness.

I love the expression he gets when I tell him he has to live in the computer.
