Now that is some pretty good advise. We have had a hectic week and on a last frantic call with the vet she said "sweetie, grab yourself a coke, sit down and it will all be okay." I sat down, had a coke, and she was right! So - when all else fails, say a prayer and have a coke:)
What is this all about? Well, our crazy doggie Allie decided to gnaw into yet another pacifier and chew off the tip. Thankfully this time she did not swallow the bulb part, but I did not realize that until a good hour later when it fell out of a pair of pants I had folded. That dog is Houdini. The pacifier was inside a Tupperware that was closed, but not snapped shut. Crazy!
Both boys are doing better. Noah had a stomach virus and Josh and Andy had a cold. Then I got the stomach thing, and Noah, Josh and Andy got better. Now Andy has gotten the stomach thing and Noah the cold.... let's hope it stops here!
We had Noah's two year appointment last week and this week we celebrated two years being home with him from the hospital. It blows me away that he is already two. It also blows me away that he has only been in our lives for two years. I feel like he has been a part of me for always.
He has really learned to form words correctly lately. He has been talking a lot for months, but he is starting to correct himself on his pronunciation! For example, he used to say "Aaaeeee" for Allie, now he can actually say "Allie." He is speaking in full sentences too! Yesterday he was on the phone with my Mom and he said, "Nanny, where'd Grumpy go?" Which is funny, one because he used such a big boy sentence, and two because my Mom originally wanted to be Granny and Noah called her Nana...and my Dad wanted to be Grampy and Noah called him PP...so now out comes Nanny and Grumpy! So funny. He has decided Josh's Mom is Gigi, who originally suggested Grandma Judy...but is still working on a name for Darren. Occasionally out comes GDaddy. I love listening to him and finding out what he is going to say. He is still talking about the "lights make noise" which is the fireworks from New Years and EVERY day he tells me "make cookie stars trees bobbi kykle house? hmmmm yum" Which means he is requesting to make more sugar cookies at Bobbi and Kyle's like we did right before Christmas!
Andy is such a little ham bone. He is such a sweet little boy, who can sleep SO well. He fell asleep last night at 10 and is still asleep right now at 8:30 a.m.. He only takes two naps during the day, which seems crazy to me. He has the most adorable laugh and his whole body shakes when he laughs. He is most ticklish right under his neck and sometimes under his arms. I LOVE to tickle him! He is starting to sit up in his bouncy chair ... to my horror. I got to use that thing for SO long with Noah. This go around it has felt like my third arm and has helped so much. Maybe he will be ready for the exersaucer soon...
Our house has not sold yet. It has been looked at 9 times, so hopefully someone just right for it will take a look soon.
Our Christmas holidays were fantastic, as was Noah's birthday. Noah was so much fun to watch at Christmas. He came out and immediately focused on one toy and proceeded to play with it and not care about anything else for half an hour. It was a little Cars track that races two cars in circles. The little cars that came with it were miniature Lightning McQueens....and had sticker eyes. One of the eyes peeled off immediately and poor Noah could not even play with anything or open any presents...he just kept saying "eyes broke." So, thanks to my Dad and a quick draw of some eyes with a sharpie the day was able to keep moving on!
We hope that you are all doing well! Here are a couple of photos to keep you going until I upload some new ones!!!
