Parade Prep

In order to get ready for the 4th of July, we decorated Noah’s wagon for the neighborhood parade.  It was reminiscent of the wagon assembly because Noah was SUCH a big helper.  Let’s just hope it stays intact until Saturday!

Thanks, Aunt Connie and Grandma Nancy, for your help with the decorations!

Daddy’s Lasagna

On Sunday I wasn’t feeling well, and so Greg took care of making dinner.  He made Noah’s favorite – lasagna!  I chaperoned from a comfy armchair Greg moved into the kitchen for me.  It was delicious!

Kitty’s Singing the Blues

Poor Kitty is again being tortured by Noah.  Kitty asks to come into the playroom, Noah “plays” with him, and then Kitty desperately looks for a way to escape.

 Hmmm...what kind of trouble can I get into??   Hmmm…what kind of trouble can I get into??

Maybe I can pick him up!

Seriously?!  There HAS to be a way out!

 

In the past, Kitty has jumped up on the ledge, walked along the wall and jumped down.  On this day, I let him out before it got to that!

Noah’s new friends

Noah hosted playgroup on Thursday, and we’ve had some new, younger additions.  Noah was fascinated with the babies! 

Miss Jen walked over with Summer in her sling.  Noah couldn’t believe there was a baby inside!

What are you hiding in there??

Daddy to the rescue!!

So, if you saw yesterday’s post, Noah was really missing the pool.  Tuesday’s weather was perfect, and Daddy worked from home, so after quittin’ time, he promised Noah a trip to the pool! Noah has no concept of time or “just as soon as Daddy gets ready”; Noah was R-E-A-D-Y!

Daddy, are we really gonna go to the pool?

The patient little boy finally got his wish, and I hear they had a great time at the pool.

Missing the pool

Like any little kid, Noah is hooked on going to the pool.  Well, the weather didn’t cooperate on Monday, so it turned out to be an inside day.  I cracked up when I saw Noah got a swim diaper out of his backpack and was trying to put it on himself – over his shorts!  Poor kid! 

Okay, I have the swim diaper.  Let's put it on!

Happy Daddy’s Day!

Noah tried really hard to make Daddy’s Day special this year (it should have been called “Noah Day”). He took Daddy to Waffle House for breakfast because he heard Daddy loves waffles so much…or was that Noah??, he took Daddy to the playground so Daddy could push the swings, and then he took Daddy to the splash pool so Daddy could run under the waterfalls. What Dad wouldn’t love a day like that??

Little hopper

On Friday, Noah was watching Barney (groan!) and they were doing the “Baby Bop Hop”.  Noah started trying to hop along with them on the TV.  Since then, he’s been working on perfecting the hop.  He tries so hard, but his feet just don’t make it off the ground!  This video is cute because he’s so focused on the hopping until he gets distracted by Pacey and runs out of the room :)

Happy Birthday Grandma Nancy!

Grandma Nancy was in town this Monday, and it just happened to be her birthday!  Noah had a lot of fun helping her celebrate!

Wow, we have noisemakers!

Noah’s new potty

Noah got a new potty, which we’re far from being able to use, but it’s never to early to introduce it, right?  The problem is that he thinks it’s his own personal “Lazyboy” chair…he sits in it, with snack in hand, and watches TV.  Potty training could take a while!  He really likes the toilet paper feature :)

Hey Mom, did you know my new chair has a hole in it?
