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.

So cute! I can't wait to see him again. It was good to talk with you again today. We will work on nailing down the trip. Woo hoo!
