"Lights, Mores Lights!"

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We hope that you are all having a fantastic holiday with your families and friends!!! We celebrated yesterday with my folks - since they are headed to cheer on the Aggies tonight - and Noah and Andy slept right through the festivities!!!

Noah must have been tuckered out from playing in the yard in his new coon skin hat!!!

After his nap, we put up the tree - he was SOOOO excited! He tried blowing them out like they were candles! Then he yelled "Lights, mores lights!" We decorated our tree with non-breakable ornaments, so he helped put them on. He kept shouting "balls, balls!" He was so excited again this morning to see the tree!!!

Our sweet Andy....he is laughing and cooing...and just melting our hearts.

Noah gobbling up the turkey leg!!! He kept saying YUM...MMMM....HMMMM.... must have been GOOD!
We have spent today working around the house, trying to get it ready to put it on the market. We will be leaving for our new adventure to central Texas. Josh has a new job, which sounds like a very good opportunity. We are excited about the new opportunities, but are so sad to leave behind our friends and my folks. We hope for many visits at our new home...since we know absolutely NO one in the boonies where we are moving!!!

The Proud Big Brother:)

It took a month, but Noah is finally really loving Andy. He even held him by himself for the first time today!!!! He is loving Andy so much that while I was feeding Andy, Noah wanted to hold him. I asked him to wait and then asked if he would like to watch Super Why while Andy ate, then he could hold him. He shook his head no, then said "Baby?" reaching for Andy like he wanted him. Now that is love, to choose your baby brother over your favorite show!!! I was SO excited at this break through!

Noah is really growing up - yesterday he took his own shirt off for the first time and even buckled his carseat! I just hope that does not lead to him quickly learning how to unbuckle it though!!! I am so blessed to have such a beautiful family!

Almost a month old!

Noah is doing so well the past couple of days! He has had a hard transition since Andy came home and he has been doing really great! Our new favorite game is to play "Ring Around the Rosy." He just thinks it is hilarious when Josh and I fall on the floor! Whenever we finish he says "On On!" which to him means, "DO IT AGAIN!" He says the same thing whenever we finish reading a book and he wants us to read it again. SO cute!!!

Josh had a really nice birthday! It was so funny though....Noah found Josh's stack of birthday cards and opened one of the envelopes. He pulled the card out, handed it to me and said "Cute!" Then he opened the card and looked very sad and said "BROKEN!" Silly kiddo, he is so used to everyone giving us the musical cards, because he loves them so much, that when Josh's card did not play music he thought it was broken! Ha!!!!

Josh took this photo of Noah in our bathtub....Noah absolutely loves bubble baths and the moment he has finished his dinner he tells us "Bath?!"

Here is a picture of our sweet Andy! I cannot believe this little boy will be a month old tomorrow. It is hard to believe a month ago right now Josh and I were checking in at St Lukes getting ready to be induced. That seems like both a lifetime ago and just like yesterday. Andy is sleeping pretty well. He absolutely loves to be swaddled. If we lay him down without doing so, he wakes right back up. Definitely an easy fix!

Well, I am off to feed Andy and head to bed for a couple of hours:)

Growing like a weed!

We took our sweet Andy to the doctor today for his check up - and he is growing like a weed! He is now 8 lbs 14 ozs and 21.5 inches long! He is doing great! The only thing the dr did say was for me to watch my dairy intake, because he does not seem to do well with it. No big deal, since I up until now have been lactose intolerant most of my life!!

Noah is doing great! He cracked us up on our way to the dr today. He kept yelling boona (balloon) and bus whenever he saw them out his window, then bye bye boona and bye bye bus. It was SO cute!
