Bonus video Walking!

"Boot camp" is working! :) Apparently he just needed us to be a little more persistent for him to realize how much fun walking can be.

November 30th Haircut/Christmas Tree

Noah got his 3rd hair cut today, just trimmed up around his neck and ears so he looks spiffy for our family pictures on Friday. He blinked for the flash but this picture is super cute, you can see his 4th bottom tooth. :)

We put up our artificial Christmas tree tonight, Noah seriously sat there looking at the tree with his mouth hanging open for like 5 minutes. He kept saying "ahhh" in an admiring way. So cute!

(the branches haven't been spread out yet, our tree isn't that puny, promise)

November 29th Special sweatshirt

Noah wore an extra special sweat shirt today, a Baylands Raceway sweatshirt that I wore as a baby to Papa's sprint car races. :) He looked SO cute in it!

November 28th Shoes

Today I packed up the clothes that Noah has grown out of and organized his closet a bit.
These shoes are all in Noah's current size, kid has more shoes than I do!
But in my defense I only bought 3 pairs, the rest were fabulous hand me downs and/or gifts. :)

Noah will need to be wearing these shoes a lot more lately, he's been put into walking "boot camp." (Meaning James and I make a point of forcing him to practice walking between us every hour or so). Noah's pediatrician was concerned at his 15 month check up/vaccine appt today. He recommended that we push him a bit more. Hence the boot camp. :) I hope to get video of a practice session in the next day or two.

November 27th Stockton Thanksgiving

We had a very nice Thanksgiving at Papa Jim and Nama Barb's house today. Lots of yummy food and Noah loved playing with Barbara's three adorable Grandsons. Next year their house will be over flowing with 5 boys under 5! Crazy :)

Noah was SUCH a good boy, he only slept about a half hour each way and yet he was not fussy or grumpy at all. In fact, he was extra sweet, freely giving out noisy "mmmmuah" kisses! Love

November 27th Happy Birthday Aunt Denise!

I couldn't get a looking at the camera smile, but Noah had fun wishing his Aunt Denise a Happy Birthday! :)

Bonus Video Dog Dog Dog

I spent the morning yesterday trying to capture Noah's words on camera, I got a few. I still need to get his adorable "Highya" on camera, it just melts my heart every time he says it with his great big smile.

Here is Noah talking to Chloe through the gate:

More video Kitty and Ball

Noah always says 'kitty' in a high pitched voice which cracks me up. And 'ball' has a great /h/ sounds on the end. Too cute.

Bonus Video No no no

Noah parrots back with "no no no!" LOL

November 25th Forts and sock monkeys

As we packed up Noah's ball pit to make room for our Christmas tree, James and Noah had fun making play mat forts. Notice the Orajel Noah is carrying, he thinks that both the inside and outside of the tube makes his gums feels great, he loves chewing on it.
I did a little Black Friday shopping this morning and I LOVE these ornaments I picked up for the boys:

I guess this makes the name official! :)

November 24th Ball

We started deflating Noah's ball pit last night to pack away and make room for the Christmas tree. So this is what he woke up to. He crawled right in and looked so sad at first! LOL I took this picture with my phone to send to Daddy at work. It cracks me up every time.

He just sat there saying ball but thankfully he didn't seem to mind it's flatness while he watched his morning Mickey.

November 23rd Teeth

Noah seemed to especially enjoy brushing his teeth tonight. I think it felt good on his sore gums. His fourth bottom tooth is finally trying to break through, and it seems as though at least two molars are in the works. He put anything and everything in his mouth today, he even tried to chew on my toes! lol

November 22nd Happy boy

Noah went to bed late last night, but slept in until 9:30 am!! Definitely a first. And he had a nice big breakfast, a whole slice of cinnamon toast and almost a whole cup of yogurt. It was so nice to see him eating, he hasn't had much of an appetite while fighting his cold.

November 20th 15 Months/Thanksgiving

Noah is 15 months old today!
Still not walking without holding on to something. But he is learning lots of new words lately. He knows how to say:
Mama, Dadda, baba (bottle), Hi, dog, ball, bubble, kitty, tickle, and papa. I really need to get him talking on video because it is so stinking cute. His Hi sounds like "high-yah" his 'ball' has an awesome 'h' sound on the end of it, 'dog' is always 'dog dog dog' and whenever he says kitty it's always an octave higher than the rest of his words lol.

Today we celebrated Thanksgiving with Grandma Linda, Papa Ray, Ray and Shelly and Noah's cousins Amber and Jenna. Got some cute shots:

November 16th Boooo for colds

Noah caught the cold that has been running around. It gave him quite the cough. Thankfully we saw it coming and we've been keeping his fever down.

November 14th Lumber Jack Noah

Noah wore his lumber jack outfit today haha his thermal has snowy pine trees all over it, and he's rocking the new boots his Aunt Shelly bought for him.

We went to dinner at Fresh Choice tonight and Noah ate a TON! He had broccoli, hard boiled egg, cucumber, corn bread muffin, butternut squash soup and SO many peas. He was loving the peas!

November 11th Walkies

Noah loves pushing his walking toys around, but gets so frustrated when he runs into things. I have to follow him and turn the toy around so that he doesn't scream. LOL

November 10th Getting closer!

I remember when Noah wasn't tall enough to see into his toy box!
Noah is so proud of himself when he let's go and takes a few steps to the next safe haven. His favorite thing is to go from the couch to ottoman, or ottoman to Mommy/Daddy's awaiting hands. He's getting braver every day!
