1-1/2 Years Old!

Noah tuned 1-1/2 years old on Sunday. It never ceases to amaze us how much this beautiful child has enhanced our life in the past 18 months. We pray that his life will continue to be filled with love, laughter, and a never ending devotion to the Lord.

We love you Punkerdunk!

We drove up to Lake Tahoe on Saturday and went for a beautiful bike ride with my parents and the Snyders. Noah was a trooper in his bike trailer...but his Daddy got quite the workout. We spent some time along the beach before lunch, swimming and skipping rocks.
I think little boys are born knowing how to throw.

Noah had his 18 month checkup yesterday. During this appointment they take all his measurements, plot his growth, check his development, and give the last shots he'll have until he's 4! Hallelujah! The nurse came in the room first and took all his measurements for the doctor to review before she began the exam. When Noah was born his height and weight weren't even on the charts because he was so tiny...but his head circumference was in the 50th percentile. Well today, after the doctor reviewed the measurements she came in and said she wanted to make sure the head measurement was correct...and it was...and he's in the 110th percentile now for his gigantic head circumference. Very unproportional in comparison to being in the 15% for weight and 50% for height. We have a boblehead...but he's cute anyway. Everything else went fine although she's a bit concerned about his language development because he still isn't talking much. If we don't see significant progress in the next month she'd like us to see a speech pathologist to get him caught up. I'm not too worried because just in the last week he's been trying to say many new words.

the newest member of the Blue Man Group!

The blue from the popscile stained his hands and mouth for a few hours. It was a riot!

Playing with the big boys!

Our dear friends, the Trokey's, were in town the last couple of weeks and we had the opportunity to spend the whole day with them on Tuesday. Their boys, Trevor, Johnny, and Channing, used to come to our house many evening when they lived here and played X-box with Scott. They had a rematch and Johnny FINALLY beat Scott...such an accomplishment. Noah is learning how to play with the big boys now.

Happy Birthday USA!

Happy 4th of July! We celebrated this blessed country this year working around our house, BBQing at the local park with church friends and family, and watching fireworks with our friends, the Claysons.
Noah was a trooper on a VERY long and eventful day.

Growing veggies and a love of reading

Last night Scott and I harvested our first produce from our new garden! We went out to check on the garden at about 10:00pm and then proceeded to pick our first produce...in the dark...with a flashlight. Noah helped pick some more this morning for his GG and our friends the Clayson's. The garden is really taking off!

Toddler Story Time is still a big hit in Noah's world. I've been taking him since he was about 4 months old and his love of books is awesome. He'd rather read a book than just about anything. Toddler Time is always a blast watching him interacting with all the other kids.
