After more then two months it still blows me away that this little guy is 3! Here are some fun (and not so fun) things about Noah right now!

-You love love love Curious George! So much so that you sometimes grunt like a monkey when wanting something.

-You are much more opinionated at 3 then 2. It is like you discovered you had a voice and an opinion that matters!

-You are pretty good at throwing fits! These aren't your best moments, but I guess part of being 3!

- You love to sing and to play any kind of instrument! (His music teacher at preschool was very impressed with him banging the drum and staying on beat!)

-You love your train sets, building blocks, and cars...you are such a boy!

-Your favorite foods are fettuccine alfredo (which you rarely get bc it is the worst), macaroni and cheese...notice a theme here...and Chickfila! Oh and who could forget Taco Bueno. But surprisingly at 3 you have learned to like carrots which makes Mommy happy!
-You are very inquisitive! Like asking "Why?" after EVERYTHING or "Where did that come from?"

-You are BIG on routine...especially our bedtime rituals.

-You love to entertain Cohen by reading him books or singing to him, or handing him his paci when he drops it. You are a good big brother!

-Last but DEFINITELY not least....drum roll please....
you are going potty!!!! We couldn't be more excited about this!

We are so proud of you, even if 3 is a little challenging! We love you!

Christmas 09

First I will start with Noah's Christmas party at preschool. Here he is looking at his book from his book exchange.

Mommy and Noah at his party. I can't believe I have a 3 year old!

Cohen with his two friends at preschool Jett and Hope!

After preschool parties and last minute Christmas shopping we headed down to Spring/Woodlands/Baytown to spend some time with friends and family. Our first stop was at Jonathan and Jennifer's where Noah got to have some play time with his friend, Jed. I too enjoyed getting to hang out with Jennifer and Jocelyn and Aaron, I know, had fun playing golf with Jonathan. We also got to go to the Chris Tomlin Christmas concert with the Jonathan and Jennifer and other friends which was a special treat. I am sad to say I didn't get any pictures there! Oh yeah and Cohen cut his first tooth while there...more on that later. We then headed to see our friends Ben and Allison who live in the Woodlands. It was good to see them and catch up since we hadn't seen them since their wedding over a year ago! Didn't get any pics there either :( After spending a few days with our friends north of Houston, it was time to spend Christmas with Aaron's family in Baytown. We had a blast hanging out, eating good food, celebrating his parents' 30th anniversary, and seeing Noah and Cohen enjoying time with their Mimi and Pawpaw. Here is a picture of Jared with his two nephews!

Watching the grand kids open presents!

Cohen loved the wrapping paper of course!

Didn't get any pics of Kami and James but they were there as well. We had a good time and decided to head home at night so the boys could sleep. Cohen slept the whole way home and Noah slept for the last 2 hrs. I am sure glad we headed home them because the next day we saw snow! Here is a picture of our tree this year before all the presents were torn into!

Here we are in the snow after eating at Pappadeaux's with my mom and dad for my Birthday.

I love the look on Noah's face...priceless!!

Cohen is all smiles on Christmas morning!

Lots of clothes for Cohen ;)

finally after My sister and her family made it back from Disney World, we had Christmas with my family. Noah and his CD player.

Emma with a puzzle which she immediately said "I don't like puzzles!" Ha!

Madison with her "spa" set.

Well, that's it! Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I hope that God richly blesses you this New Year! Can you believe it is 2010?!?
