This is how Noah eats now!

Noah has started biting his spoon now when it is time to eat; he likes putting those two teeth to good use :-)

He also likes to grap the spoon from me

I finally did it!

I finally cut my hair! Nate was not thirlled about the idea but he said that as long as I could pull the sides back he didn't care. So I went yesterday (after very little sleep from the night before) and prayed that Nate would not hate it when I got back. I like it and it is nice to have a change and Nate is beginning to like it (change takes him awhile) :-) Posted by Picasa

Sometimes love hurts too much!

Friday night Nate and I were able to go out on a date and see a movie; Julie was kind enough to watch Noah for us (he ended up crying most of the time for her so we owe Julie big time). When we came back from the movie I drove Julie home while Nate stayed with our sleeping beauty. When I came in the door Nate had Noah on sleeping on his shoulder and motioned for me to come close to listen to the baby breathing. When I heard the abnormal sounds my son was making my heart dropped into my stomach; this was not something we could ignore. I called the on call number our doctor's office has and described to the nurse the sounds Noah was making; her advice was to bring him into the ER considering how young he is. This again made my heart sink; I was hoping somewhere in the back of my mind that the nurse would say everything seemed ok and to put Noah back to sleep. At 10pm Nate, Noah, and I got in the car and drove to The Children's Hospital; Nate and I prayed together on the way and I know that I continued praying the whole drive (as I am sure Nate did as well). To make a long story short the doctor was not sure what had happened that night but Noah is in good health and we were able to take him home.
Throughout this whole experience the Lord continued to remind me that He was in control and that He loves Noah much more then Nate or I ever could. I had to keep telling myself the truths about God's character every time I held Noah and began to worry. I must admit that this experience made me question if I wanted any more children (one more person to love and worry about did not seem like a good idea at the time). We have so much to praise God for and I am so grateful that He cares about our concerns. I know that if I did not have His promises to lean on I would have been crying the whole time we were at the hospital and I would not be able to get any sleep when Noah is sleeping.
The hospital had this toy attached to the wall and Noah liked playing with it at 1:30 in the morning!

Happy Birthday Julie!

Tim, Julie, Nate and I went the the 219 restaurant for Julie's birthday. At first I did not think that I would be able to find something to eat I liked(since I am so picky)that but I was pleasantly suprised! I left very full and we had a wonderful time! Happy belated birthday Jules!

A Christmas present!

This is a Christmas present that we just put together for Noah. It may look like Noah is sitting up by himself but he still needs a small amount of assistance.

My Son the Traitor

While I'm a New Englander, born and raised, my taste for coffee has changed over the years. Ever since moving to VA Beach, I've been a Starbucks afficianado. As any reader of this blog would know, we've started Noah in the same tradition from an early age. In case you didn't see the post, his first visit to Starbucks was before his 1 week birthday. However, on our recent excursion to NH for Christmas, it appears Noah has become a turncoat and found a new love.
You can take the boy out of New England, but you can't take New England out of the boy :-) To be fair, Dunkin Donuts does have the best ice coffee around and despite the large crowd of naysayers, I think they have the best donuts too (especially chocolate glazled), Krispy Kreme included. Anyway, to make sure the little guy didn't get to far removed from his roots, we snapped a quick shot to prove he still got his Starbucks fix. The pic below is from one of the two Starbucks we frequented in NH (this one's in Tilton).
