The cow jumped over the moon!

Unfortunately I have no pictures to commemorate the event, but Noah J saw the moon for the first time tonight!! We were on our way home from my parents and he suddenly just started "ooooooooo" ing in the back seat and pointing up at the top of the window. I had to run by my brother's house so we got there and I let him out and he ran all the way to the end of the driveway just saying "oooooooooooo" and pointing at the moon!! He was SOOOO excited!

We read Goodnight Moon every single night, and he always points to the moon in the book. I guess he finally put 2 and 2 together!!

Showering baby!

Noah's latest obsession is the shower! He wants to be in it ALL the time. He especially likes to bring his blanket in there and then play with all of the shampoo that is sitting on the bench. And he REALLY loves to come in and shower with us. If Josh is taking a shower, Noah is standing outside sobbing at the door. A couple of days ago he came and got me and wanted me to follow him. SO he took me to the bathroom pointed at the shower door and did the sign for more. More shower please!!

A New Friend!

Noah James made a new friend this weekend - Maddie! Our neighbors from across the street came over for dinner Sunday night and the kiddos got to play together for the first time. Noah really liked Maddie - perhaps its cause she's like 7-8 weeks younger than him so he doesn't feel threatened!

He shared his toys with her and was just all around sweet - we were very impressed! We were sad it took us this long to get together cause we had such a good time. But you see, my house is never clean enough! They just got lucky that Megan came over Friday so my house was still clean from that event! :) We can't wait to have Maddie over again to play!

Scaredy cat!!

So we had visitors today and Noah James decided that he should be scared of them. For the first hour they were here, Noah hid behind Josh's legs and whimpered. But he liked Megan - he kept looking at her and smiling, but he was still scared for some reason.

He did eventually warm up and had fun playing. Although he didn't want much to do with Claire! I think he's tired of the older ladies coming over and playing with his things!! :)

The Baby's Cell Phone

So I know this is one of those things I SWORE we would never buy our children, but Noah is obsessed with cell phones! So my parents got him this one for their house that he just loves. It rings and he can flip it open and someday when he decides to speak he can say hello! For now he just holds it up to his ear. It also has a feature where we can record a message on it and when he pushes a button it plays. I usually say something like "Mommy says, be a good boy while I change your diaper!" Josh's is something along the line of "I'm gonna get those baby biscuits!!"

It was such a hit that Noah J and Joseph decided to fight over it so G&G had to buy another one so each boy has his own phone. And of course you know that didn't fix the problem - they still want the one the other one has!

A New Tradition!!!!!!

I'm thinking that the new tradition from today forth is that the 12th man ALWAYS has his blanky and his passy. Whoop!

The world's coolest splash pad!

Last Sunday G&G decided it would be a good idea to set up the splash pool for the boys to play in. Of course we didn't have swim diapers/trunks or anything, so they got to have some fun in the world's largest diapers. Joseph liked it a lot more than Noah - he's not so much into the whole cold water thing or water in his face.

We had to take pics of their cute naked bums before we took them in!! On the left is the cooked turkey and on the right it the raw turkey!

Ode to Noah & Joe

Noah and Joseph played a duet last week and we snapped a few pics cause they were so cute! Noah was pretty mad at Joseph at first - he kept taking his hands off the keys. You can see in the 2nd picture his angry face and he's pushing Joe's hands. Joseph seemed to think his job was to turn the pages of the music.

They were even cuter cause they were wearing little baby onesies! You know there is not much more that I love in life than putting my 15 month old in a onesie thats means for a newborn!

We had fun today going to Grandma and Grandpa to celebrate the opening Saturday for college football! Barbecue and brats - not much better in the world! We were even lucky cause Josh had off today and we listened to the Aggies win their game on the radio. We're all gonna sleep well tonight - today was exhausting!!

Splishing and Splashing!

Can you believe that I'm actually writing from my own house on my own computer?? WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!!!!!

We are forever greatful to Josh and Kelly for coming over tonight and keeping their little one up WAY past her bedtime just to get our internet connection working!!!! I like to think I'm kinda sorta technologically savvy, but I truly had no idea how to get this whole wireless thing going. But Josh got it working and now I just can't even believe it!!! Thanks Josh!!

Since it was bedtime Noah J had to take his bath and Adeline wanted to get in too, so they got to have fun together! Noah was a little unsure, but he handled it better than I thought he would! Look at how pale poor Noah J looks compared to the tan beauty next to him! We all had to laugh. I'm quite certain the kids were confused because there were 4 adults crowded into the tiny bathroom staring at them and takig pictures. At least we gave them something to tell their shrinks!

OH yeah, I just realized Noah is chewing on his Yoda action figure. Its his newest obsession!! :)
