Wobbly walker

When Noah stands, he hasn’t yet had the instinct to move his feet forward.  Until today.  Every day, I have been walking, holding his hands, with his feet on mine to show him what to do.  This afternoon, I tried to show Greg how I walk with him, and Noah did it himself!  Yes, he is still wobbly, and he has a long way to go before walking on his own, but these were literally his first steps!

Rebel with a cause

Poor Noah.  For an early birthday/Christmas present from my mom, I got a new camera – the Canon Digital Rebel.  Now, instead of seeing mommy’s smiling face, 99% of the time Noah’s looking into the camera lens!  I want to get a lot of practice so when Noah’s first Christmas comes around, we’re armed and ready for the fun.

Celebration’s Fall Extravaganza

Sunday afternoon we went to our church’s Fall Festival.  While Noah was a little too young to participate in most of the activities, he had a lot of fun watching the other kids.  And what beautiful weather we had!

I wanted to take Noah down this "Titanic" slide - a little bigger than the neighborhood slide!

How fun would it be to take Noah down this Titanic slide??

Noah liked the petting zoo
Oink!

We also saw a turkey (really gross in real life!) a donkey and some small pettable animals in the Petting Zoo.  We had some really yummy BBQ, which I shared with Noah.  He didn’t like the pulled pork (maybe b/c he just made friends with the pig…he was making a statement!), but he did like the baked beans – what a squishy mess! 

Mummy and Me

Monday we had a very special Halloween-themed Mommy and Me.  Noah got to dress up as a pumpkin again (lucky him!), and saw his friends dressed in some very creative costumes!
 
"OH, you HAVE to be kidding!  AGAIN?!"
“Oh, you HAVE to be kidding me!  Again?!”
