We had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving AND Noah's 2nd birthday! We had a great dinosaur theme! I found this great cake idea, you have to check it out. The instructions are super easy to follow. David and I were very proud of our creation and it was a recognizable dinosaur! Noah loved it (it was cake how could he not). I also found an awesome cake recipe, seriously I don't know that I will buy another white cake mix again. Check out my Sweet Elder blog for the recipe.
Oh I forgot, Noah's stats:
15% for weight - 24 lbs.
60% for height - 34 1/4 inches
and a big noggin' (I don't remember what the nurse said)
He is a super active little guy. Loves dinosaurs and trucks and to read!! It is amazing to see him go all the time and never stay at one activity and then when we sit and read books together, he usually can't get enough, love that! Some of our favorites Trucks (from his cousin Harrison), From Head to Toe by Eric Carle, How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long, How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food by Jane Yolen.
A really funny thing Noah has started to do: When I need to redirect him after he has done something he isn't supposed to. I either pick him up or sit down with him and tell him to look at mommy's eyes or find mommy's eyes. I have a couple times put my hand under his chin (gently) to keep him focused. So this weekend, he continued to climb on top of a small table we have in his room with a lamp and cd player on it. So I picked him up and tell him to find mommy's eyes, he holds his own chin, closes his eyes and starts singing the blessing we sing before meals and he sings at school! 'God our Father, God our Father...' How could I keep a straight face after that, and let me just say David and I are in for it, Noah totally has my number!
