The other day for dinner I made a Thai stir fry and per his script, Noah had to help out. I waited until the food had cooled, and I let him pull a stool up to taste test. Chef Noah was being quite the ham!
Concerned we forgot an ingredient…don’t worry, there’s Peanut Butter in there!

Hey, I get to help in the kitchen!
Okay, now he’s really hamming it up!
Mmm, sugar snap peas…
So I’m a little behind on my blog posts, but Noah did a couple REALLY funny things lately that I had to interject. Usually I tell a story about something silly Noah does and my mom inevitably asks, “Did you take a picture?!” Um, no. Well, this time I did. I went into Noah’s room tonight to check on him, and he had pulled all the diapers from his diaper stacker into his bed with him. I can just imagine him rolling around in them like they were hundred dollar bills before he fell asleep!
The flash didn’t even wake him up!
Noah’s third and final egg hunt this year was in our neighborhood at the annual egg hunt. It was a beautiful day, and Noah had a lot of energy! He did have to take a “time out” before the start of the hunt, but he settled down and enjoyed the hunt.
One excited little boy!

There were bunnies for the kids to pet
We went to the playground after the hunt, which is one of Noah’s favorite things to do
Noah’s second opportunity to hunt Easter Eggs was at his school Easter Party. It fell on a Wednesday, so Daddy was able to go as well. Noah had a better understanding of what he was supposed to do, so Mommy finally got some candy!
So glad Daddy could come to the party
Enjoying a sweet treat!
Okay, I’m ready! I know what to do now!
Hey, purple (Noah’s branching out!)
We’re thankful for the numerous opportunities Noah got to hunt Easter eggs this year. They say practice makes perfect, right? Noah was practicing his independence more than anything else. The pictures say it all…
Noah was excited to see his basket from last year. I should have noticed the look of mischief in his eyes!
“Are you sure this isn’t a hat?”
We went to church for breakfast and an egg hunt…
Not wanting to sit still for the craft
Paying attention to the older girls instead of the Easter Story
Taking the contents out of the eggs so he could keep the blue egg and not the “stuff”
(Notice how well the eggs were hidden!)
“ What do you mean I’m supposed to be looking for eggs – I have energy to burn!!!!”
I think someone snuck a donut at breakfast!
So, Mommy didn’t go home with any candy. Better luck next time…
That’s what Noah says almost every day, begging to go ride the train at the mall…and of course he wants to ride in the blue car! He rode it for the first time while his cousin, Hannah, was in town over Spring Break, and it’s his newest obsession – and it’s $3/ride!
The train whistle is loud, and the conductor yells “All Aboard!”

Noah was proud that he got to hold his own ticket

Noah also likes to throw coins in the fountain. Daddy’s going to have to increase Noah’s allowance for these expensive hobbies😉
On Sunday, March 21st, Greg and eleven other runners ran the Georgia ING Half Marathon in memory of Wyatt and Jack as well as to raise awareness for micro-preemies. Their team was called “Baby Steps”. Overall, we raised $1,425 for various organizations to help micro-preemies. Here are some pictures from the event:
Greg and Kim ready to go…VERY early!
In case you missed it on her shirt!
Still smiling on Mile 10!
A big group of us cheered them on in the rain.
(A runner actually stole Jill’s sign – right out of her hands!)
Yay! You did it!!
Welcome home, Daddy! We’re so proud of you!
