One Fine Day

So the last week has been a week off of work for me. That means David gets a work week devoted to his second wife, his dissertation, and I am a stay at home mommy! I do have to say that it is different being home and not leaving the house but it has so many rewards. Noah is awesome for one thing, I am sure y'all know that - I mean look at the kid he is adorable. No but seriously, I have been having fun, tons of fun. Yes there are times that I wish he would sleep in atleast until 7 (it was a sad day when I started thinking 7 was sleeping in) or when trying to make lunch he has to have my attention or to take a walk means chasing Noah down to put on shoes, get a leash on Molly, then chasing Noah down again because he has wandered off while I was attending to Molly, carrying Noah down three flights of stairs while manuvering around Molly so I won't trip myself, hauling the stroller out of the car and then finally we are off. That in itself is a workout! But it is those moments at the end of the day that make me smile, laugh and almost tear up because of how lucky I am. How lucky I am to have a little boy who loves to be outside and loves to just say my name over and over that he begins to sound like a CD that skips.

David and I have been talking the older Noah gets the harder it is going to be to keep a straight face when desciplining him. He is just too cute and when he looks at you and you know those wheels are turning in there, he has totally got us figured out, he will slap a huge ol' smile on his face and all seriousness is gone, I am a bit frustrated but really what can you do when he goes limp and lays on the floor in the middle of Target (no joke happened last week). I might add that David was no help and was laughing! I laugh now.

I guess my point is it is a blessing to me a mom to Noah and I am blessed to have time with just him. And really we will all agree our lives would just be too boring without kids, and frankly I think we would not notice the little stuff as much and to me that would just be a shame.

Our Little Boy is Growing Up

Okay so I knew it was going to happen but everyone is right it happens so fast! Noah is talking so much and words that he has been saying are coming out a lot more clearly for instance outside now actually sounds like outside instead of 'ass'--David and I would always laugh about that. Also he knows the things he is not supposed to be doing and he will look at me with those big blue eyes and then look at or towards whatever he wants to do and do this stare down with me, it takes everything in me not to laugh or smile. If anyone really knows me I am HORRIBLE at hiding a smile! Noah is going to get away with so much no matter how much my sisters and mom talk about my 'teacher voice'. Anyway, the only time that Noah sits still anymore is when we read our books for bed and snuggle a little bit and I know one day that to will end but I sure enjoy the moment now. Last night I couldn't help but notice the smell of baby sunscreen and maple syrup coming from my little boys cheeks and hands! Okay enough of being a mushy mom I have tons of pictures I want to post but I know they are not all going to go. I will have to make a little snapfish album or something.
