Kitchen Help NOT needed!

Noah is a big helper, which is always fun to watch.  He makes a bee-line for the fridge whenever the door is open!

The photo shoot ended shortly after the syrup bottle cracked on the floor, covering Noah’s feet and summoning Pacey to come lick everything up!  Like I said – Kitchen Help NOT needed!

A friend to lean on…

Noah loves his friend, Tommy the Tiger.  This was a gift from Aunt Jeanine and Uncle Jeff for his birthday…

Greg took this next picture, so I’m not quite sure what Noah was looking at or watching, but it looks fascinating!

M.O.M.

Since Noah is going to soon be a big brother to three, I figured I needed to do some research.  On Saturday night, I went to get some advice on being a M.O.M. (mother of multiples) from none other than Kate Gosselin (Jon and Kate Plus Eight – mother of twins AND sextuplets!) – who was signing books at our local Christian bookstore.  Her advice to me – GO HOME AND REST!!  Consider it done!  And now I have a good book to read!

She also told the lady behind us that I shouldn’t have had to wait in line (wish I would have known that an hour earlier!)

Stair master

You saw a while ago that Noah really likes to go up the stairs.  I have tried and tried to get him to understand that going DOWN the stairs is not quite so easy.  Finally the other day, it clicked!  He turns around backwards to go down the stairs now.  It’s funny because sometimes he isn’t lined up right or he starts way too early.  But the point is, he’s getting it!  What a smart little guy!

Happy Easter!!

Sorry this post is a little late (morning sickness and an active toddler don’t leave much time for blogging!) 
Last week we enjoyed Easter with Noah’s Aunt Connie and Aunt Jeanine.  We also celebrated Jeanine’s birthday :)
Aunt Jeanine, I baked you a birthday cake!

Noah didn’t want to be held for a picture, so we got down to his level…

Happy Easter!

His new favorite thing is running…and boy, does he go!

The Easter Bunny brought Noah a new sippy cup, a Veggie Tales DVD, some books, yummy treats and an addition to his rubber ducky collection.  Someone must have been a really good boy!

Noah’s Easter Egg Hunt – 2008

Before I show you the pictures of Noah from this year’s Easter Egg Hunt, let’s look at how he did last year (he was only 7 weeks old!)
What did she put on my head?

 This year Noah was a little more involved.  We practiced at home the day before (I “hid” eggs around the living room).  When we got up to the Reunion Green, Noah was excited to see all the eggs.  He didn’t understand that we needed to wait for the signal to start :)

Ready to hunt!

Mommy and Me Easter

Last week we celebrated Easter at Mommy and Me with an Easter party and egg hunt!

Poor Noah might need therapy when he gets older...but he does make a cute bunny!

It looks like he got the hang of it.  Actually, I put the egg in the basket; Noah took it out so he could throw it!

He did like picking them up!

 Now that we’ve had our dress rehearsal, we’re ready for the big hunt on Saturday!

Got milk?

On RAINY Friday afternoon, we went to visit the Mayfield Dairy Milk Production Facility.  The tour was pretty interesting, and who doesn’t like ice cream?

Noah was asked to leave the tour because he didn’t want to wear his hair net.  We assured them we would do our best to keep it on his head.  I think we put it back on at least 20 times!  Doesn’t he know how fashionable it is?

That was fun!  We’ll definitely go back – at least for the cheap ice cream :)
