Last week, Noah and Garrett’s Aunt Kiki and Cousins Jon & Hannah came down from Ohio for their Spring Break. Nana and Papa came up from Florida on their way back to Ohio. It was a really fun week!
A few weeks ago, Noah got new rain gear from his very generous Aunt Connie. When it arrived in the mail, he was so excited to put it to use…just one small problem – there was no rain.
No rain? No problem!
Noah knew exactly where to find rain!
Fortunately, a few days later, it DID rain, and Noah got to use his new gear OUTSIDE! Thanks, Aunt Connie
I was eating lunch on the floor the other day while Garrett was hanging out in his bouncy seat. He was staring at me like he wanted what I was eating, so I decided to share my pickle, assuming he would then think twice about drooling over my food. I was wrong – he loved it!! He is teething, and so he was trying to take a bite out of it with his gums
Hmmmm…now what else can I feed him??
Last Thursday was Creepy Critter night in our neighborhood. Greg and Noah went to see the reptiles, and I was shocked to see what was on the camera when they got home! They had a ball and are still talking about it!
(I wish we could see what Kelly sees here!)
Helping hold a 12’ Burmese Python
Can you say BRAVE!?
In January we enrolled Garrett in Kindermusik classes. I was hesitant at first because I thought 5 months was a little young for Garrett to be able to participate. Boy, was I wrong! He loves it!! The class is comprised of twelve “babies” up to 15 months (Garrett is the youngest in the group) and a VERY loving teacher, Ms. Dana. Every Tuesday, we have different musical activities that help the children learn about the world around them – concepts such as fast/slow, start/stop, up/down, etc. The unit we are currently in is called Cock-a-doodle-MOO, and we are learning farm/animal songs and sounds. We also play with different musical instruments and interact with friends (Garrett’s favorite part is watching the other kids!)
On a selfish note, I love Kindermusik because the music is just about the only thing that makes Garrett happy about being in the car, and we listen to the CD on repeat. Noah even has learned his favorite tracks – “Mommy, please play Song # 10! It’s my favorite!”
On a side note…Kindermusik is HQ in Greensboro, NC where Greg and I met and got married Who knew!
Last Monday, our friend Ella Rae’s mommy called, and she had a sick baby to take care of, so we invited Ella Rae to come stay here for the day to help out Ms. Anne. Noah had the best day ever!
Noah had to show off his Spiderman costume to Ella Rae, and then they had lunch together.
They rode bikes in circles for hours!
They both napped well, and then Ella Rae got to stay for dinner! Here is a video of them singing the blessing
(I love how Ella Rae whispers that she still has soap on her hands)
Thanks for coming over, Ella Rae! Come back soon!
Noah enjoyed soccer so much last season that we signed him up for the spring season. Little did we realize how spoiled we had been by playing indoor over the winter! The first day was chilly already with 30 mph winds!
(They named themselves the Flying Super Ninja Roars)
(A playground under a pavilion – what a novel idea!)
I checked the weather forecast, and this Sunday looks a little warmer. Garrett and I should be able to watch the whole game
