Here's a little shout out to Gramma L while she is on the road to Oklahoma and Mississippi. Though we could not be with you on your birthday we were thinking of you non the less. Here are a few humorous videos for your enjoyment.
Gramma L and Papa Ernie- we miss you and love you lots! This last one was the "short-n-sweet" version. Noe knows when he has it in one take.
I asked Noe what letter this was and I was very surprised when he got it right. I helped him with the upper case A but with the lower case one I just told him to draw a circle and then a line on the side. Isn't it AMAZING!!! My son is a genius. =) This is his first attempts, he is so brilliant! Okay am I a proud Mama or what!?!?! Well, this was the "work" and the video is the "fun". Sorry I have no idea how to flip the video. I hope you can enjoy it anyhow.
Noe came to me after his nap today and asked me to sing the birthday song. So after I sang it a couple times it was Noe's turn. So Happy birthday Aunty Dawn. Dawn we love you and we pray that this year is full of blessings and joy. Happy Birthday! Love, Us
This was Noak's attempt to put his own bib on. We only use them for sticky or wet food when he has nice clothes on. (His jammies are pulled down to his waist). He is learning something new everyday. It always surprises me. He just recently began to use adjectives and other words to fill in his sentences. So he will tell us about Papa Ernie's orange tractor (the Kubota that Dad gave Gabe). He will also point out the blue light and the red chair, his green shoes or the "daddy" bite he just took. Yesterday we were grocery shopping and he had the shopping cart buckle in his hand. He stretched it as high as it would go and he proclaimed "talk buckle". We don't linger on the heighths of objects very often and I was once again astounded that he used the correct word in referrence to where his buckle was. It was very cute. I am constantly finding myself telling Noe how smart he is and I'm usually saying it from a place of sheer surprise at how actually smart he is. (Occasionally I say it just as encouragement for something that he tells me over and over again).
