Ok, I have a confession . . . I was able to go on a short errand to pick up some tortillas for our chicken tacos yesterday, and let's just say, Noah stayed with Nathan at home, and I had a BLAST all by myself in Nathan's truck jamming out to my new favorite song. Is it bad that it felt good to be away from home by myself?! Well, I was thrilled, I felt like a teenager again, and the base was very loud. I don't get to turn the music up with precious Noah obviously, so I almost felt like a rebel!!! How funny those things we take for granted before kids. Oh, so you want to know my favorite new song?! Let me preface it with this: I listen to all Christian music and anything vintage (Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, etc), so my new favorite is very uncharacteristic of me. It is by T.I. (a RAPPER of all things!!!!), and it is called "Whatever You Like". I know, I am a nerd, but I was a closet 2Pac fan. Anyone else?
Here is Noah's debut. I even put his hair in a mowhawk for it!!! Enjoy.(Oh, and ignore the disaster on my desk . . . we just moved into our new house, and that part hasn't been organized yet!)
Well, it's true, we just spent the last three weeks moving about 2 blocks from where we used to live. We moved into a larger home, and we are LOVING it!!! The neighborhood is nicer, and it is such a great place. Nathan's dad, Mike, came up here from Albuquerque to help us, thank the Lord, because we literally could not have done it without him. He and Nathan were so funny, working on this and fixing that. They have a great father/son relationship, and for that, I am so grateful. So, I sit here in my office staring at boxes yet to be unpacked, but that's ok, I am tackling that tomorrow. My friends have been itching to see new photos of Noah, so I finally found my camera usb cord, so I could upload the most recent photos of that precious boy.
He is beyond fun. He is now 11 weeks old, and he is full of personality. Noah is a calm spirit with a dash of spunk! He talks all the time now, and it is so much fun to carry on a full conversation with him. If I can figure out how to upload a video, I will put it on here. (Does anybody know how to do that?)
He is already 15 lbs, and he is very long. He is full of nothing but smiles, and he started laughing for the first time on Friday! Nathan had him going! It made me melt. He has the most adorable little voice, one that I know will be used for great things in God's Kingdom. I can already imagine him telling me I Love You . . . sometimes it even sounds like that is what he is saying already!!!
For Halloween, my Auntie Sheryl sent Noah money to get his first costume! I was so excited to dress him up to go to our church's Fall Fest, and yes, he was a hit. He was a giraffe because that is his favorite animal. He gets most excited about the Giraffe in his book out of all the animals.
One last thing, we just had a marvelous weekend with Nathan's mom and Doug, and it was sad to see them go, but I know it was very special to Noah to see them. He just loves them. My mom and Gramps are coming up next weekend, and we are very anxious about that also! Much love to all.
