Noah Update

I have no idea what is going on with this kid, but Noah is taking off like crazy.

It all started when he began sitting up before he was six months old.  Like, barely falling over, just sitting there, happily playing.

Okay, that is super nice for me so I accepted this change.

However, now this guy thinks he can go anywhere he wants to.  My computer cord is way across the room?  No problem.  He just rolls over and over again until he gets it.  His favorite toy behind him?  He just crawls backwards.

Okay, so the crawling backwards thing is rather amusing.  He gets up on all fours, rocks back and forth, desperately trying to go forward, then eventually pushes himself backwards across the room.  Hilarious.

If this child sees something he wants, he will find a way to get there.  Suddenly, his little area of safe play is not good enough.  The rest of my non-child-proof home is calling out to him.

Oh, and for an added bonus, he started pulling himself up on things.  Yep. That would be him getting up on his knees, trying to reach for more toys.  I love the look he gives me-"Who, me?"

Noah also finds absolutely everything hysterical.  I do not remember my first two babies smiling this much.  I am super grateful he is so happy and hope it lasts forever.

All I am waiting for now is the rain to stop so we can get out and take adventures together while the other two are at school.  Come on, sun, I know you exist.  Please bring some warm weather our way so that Noah can meet the bike trail that we will take lovely walks on.

I think he is taking after his Grandpa he was named after! Your Dad is always doing stuff that I think is impossible but he works til it gets done. When he was little they called him "fingers" because he was always into everything and taking stuff apart.

Just a thought- that's what I thought of when I read this! I miss his laugh!!
