So the month of December has been a busy month. Noah was sick for the first time. He had a cold, the runny nose, slight cough and his voice sounded funny. His night time was difficult because he couldn't breath through his nose so he was waking up frequently which wasn't very fun for us. We walked down Christmas Tree lane, a street where all the houses decorate with lights, we had friends and family accompany us. Noah also had two bottom teeth come in which has made things interesting. Since the teething has started he has not been sleeping through the night anymore. Also Noah has been sitting up for short periods of time, it shouldn't be much longer before he is doing it all by himself!
Noah is still doing great at daycare, Norma and Bert enjoy having him there. I have just accepted a second job at a surgery center in Fresno. I will be working per diem only, which means one day a week or one day every 2 weeks. So I'm looking forward to starting that.

Noah's first Christmas!

Well Noah had his first Christmas. He didn't really know what was going on and enjoyed playing with the wrapping paper the most, next year should be much more eventful.  He got some toys, but not too many so that was nice. We also took him to go see Santa and that didn't phase him too much and I don't even think he really looked at who he was sitting with, I'm just glad he didn't cry. We had my side of family over to our house on Christmas Eve and did our annual white elephant gift exchange with is always interesting and Christmas Day we drove to Matt's parents house, which is 2 1/2 hours away, where we spent the day with his parents and his sister's family. Unfortunately I had to work the next day so we had to make it a short trip.

Noah's second time rolling over, he was not happy until he did it

Rolling over!

Well Noah has had his first Thanksgiving, I don't have any pics from that day I will have to get those from my mom, I know what bad parents. We had a great day though, we spent the first part of the afternoon at my Aunt LeeAnne's and then the later afternoon with Matt's side of the family at our house. The day after Thanksgiving Matt hung a swing in our backyard and Noah has really been enjoying that.
So Noah is now rolling over from his back to his stomach, the only problem is once he gets on his stomach he has forgotten how to get onto his back again which makes him very mad. He has also started squealing and screaming when he is playing and we have gotten a few good belly laughs out of him. He is eating solids a couple times a day now and has tried a variety of fruits and vegetables.
He loves his swing and if you look at his feet he does this a lot with them

Soon I will be able sit up on my own
Such a long boy

Noah talking and cooing

4 months old

Wow! Noah is 4 months old today! Some new things are we have introduced solid food for the first time a couple of days ago. He didn't necessarily enjoy the first bite of rice cereal, he actually made some not so good faces, but seems as though he is enjoying it more and more each time. He has also been holding his head up better when he is on his stomach. He will even sometimes roll over from his stomach to his back, which surprises him every time. It won't be long before he is rolling from his back to his stomach, he gets his upper body almost over but his bottom half has yet to follow. Noah has also just started these mini sit ups, when he is in his car seat or bouncer chair he puts his head forward and his legs come up, it is kind of a funny site. Noah's great grandma Sandhurst also came for a visit in October. She got to visit with Noah quite a few times and even watched him one day while I was at work, he was very good and I think grandma had fun too.

Halloween 2008

I've officially returned back to work and Noah had his first day of daycare. He is doing well so far and Norma has had only good things to say, I was really worried about how he would do so I feel much better about the situation now. 
Noah had his first trip to the pumpkin patch and got all dressed up for Halloween. Matt took him to the pumpkin patch with Aunt Erin, Uncle Sean and cousins Keegan and Connor. On Halloween the Waklee family were all dressed up as characters from Lord of the Rings so Matt thought him and Noah needed to fit in. Matt was dressed up as Treebeard and Noah was Pippin it was a pretty funny site, surprisingly Noah didn't mind wearing his wig.

More of Noah

3 months old

Noah is now 3 months old and I can't believe how time is flying by and how big our little guy is! One of newest things Noah has started to do is put his thumb in his mouth, sometimes sucking it but mostly chewing on it. It will be interesting to see how long this will last considering I sucked my thumb until I was eight! Noah also enjoys sitting and standing, with assistance of course, so he can see everything that is going on.

Bumbo seat time!

Noah is almost 3 months old and is getting more and more fun everyday. We had our first full night of sleep about a week ago and have had several more since so that has been very refreshing! Noah has been enjoying his bumbo seat but his head gets a little tired after a few minutes. October 22 is my official go back to work day which is sad to think about and is approaching fast but it will be nice to see everyone at work again. We have a daycare provider set up but he will only be there 2 sometimes 3 days a week.

2 months old!

Noah turned 2 months old yesterday! Wow how the time is going fast! He is starting to be awake longer during the day and interacting with us more. He is still getting up every 3 hours at night but most of the time goes right back to sleep and every once in a while we get lucky with 4 or 5 hours of sleep in a row! We are getting lots of smiles, have even heard a laugh or two and his arms and legs never seem to stop moving. Man how this little guy keeps us so busy but I'm just enjoying the time with Noah until I have to go back to work at the end of October. 

Big smiles

His hair on top of his head fell out and is starting to grow back

Out on the lake

So we took Noah to Millerton Lake last night with our friends Chad and Melissa. We took the boat out after Chad and Matt got off work and had dinner on the lake. Noah enjoyed being outdoors and even feel asleep on the boat for a little while.
