What Noah is most likely thinking these days...
Well, I guess these crazy people around me are my family. They do not seem to be leaving anytime soon, which is good, since they are pretty entertaining.
I noticed the man I am supposed to call Daddy is around a lot more now. Some days he still leaves for the day, but quite often, he is around more than he was when I first arrived. I am really glad because he is a lot of fun. He plays a lot of baseball with my brother and dances with my sister. I hope I get to play like that someday.
Speaking of my sister, she seems pretty great. She gets down to my level and plays with me, smiling sweetly and using fun voices. I am not really a fan of when she picks me up and moves me to a different place. Doesn't she know that cords and DVDs are more fun to play with than my toys?
I really like my brother. We share a room, which is pretty cool. Whenever I am too excited to sleep, he keeps me entertained. Sometimes when I talk loudly in the morning, he wakes up and talks with me. He has learned that if he tries to leave our room before me, I cry, so he is pretty patient and waits for me. He also has these really cool cars that he (sometimes) shares with me.
My favorite person is Mommy. I try to show her how much I love her by constantly crying for her if she is in the room. I like everyone else a lot, but if Mommy walks by, I would rather go to her. For some reason, she moves around a lot. I watch her going from room to room, picking up things that I know my brother and sister will just get out again. I think she should spend her time better by just sitting with me. That is why I whine for her-I am just trying to help her have a better day.
For a long while, I just laid around and watched everyone around me. Eventually, I sat up so that I could see better. But, when I was sitting there, I realized that everyone still kept moving and got to do so many cool things. So, I decided to keep up.
Crawling is awesome.
I get to see new things (and by see, I mean put them in my mouth). Did you know there are all sorts of cool things on the ground, that are the perfect size to swallow? And best of all, I get to follow Mommy everywhere. She has the best things in the kitchen. I think they are called measuring cups-they are way better than my toys.
Even though crawling is great, I find that standing up and scooting my feet around gets me places, too. I am particularly interested in finding a way up the stairs. That way I can never be left behind.
Recently, I finally gave in and clapped for my family. They had been asking me to do it for awhile, but I figured I would keep them in suspense. When I finally did it, they yelled and laughed so loud that I was not sure that I wanted to do that again. Eventually I did and it is pretty wonderful to see them smile so much.
Sometimes when I am doing all of these things, I see my Mommy looking at me. She seems to have this sad look in her eyes, like she is disappointed that I am growing so quickly. That is why I cuddle with her and give her lots of kisses.
Yes, I suppose I will stick around with these people. They are alright.
