Updates on Development

Well this past week, Noah's 6th tooth poked through. The top right. He still just has two on the bottom and four on the top now. Last night we had the Searbys, Whitlocks and Williams over for games and dinner. While Matt and I were both looking at Noah he took his first step! He just took one and it was a pivot step. Matt said it was a "perfect Basketball move." So hopefully he will be working on walking for this weekend!

Also, sometime this past week, Noah began to point at things. The first thing he pointed at was his milk!

Clearwater Beach

Saturday, April 28th, the three of us, with Joel and Jen Searby, went to Tampa to check out the building and grounds of the church plant that is to be a mission trip for our church. Since we were so close to the Gulf, we (Jen and I) decided that we should go on over to the beach. Noah was a little bit scared at first, but seemed to enjoy it once he got used to it.

Miscellaneous stuff

Hi all! I promised to update the blog sooner than I have been, so here we go...

This is Noah eating a bitter biscuit...Looks pretty normal here, but wait till you see the next two photos!

This is showing Noah's 5 teeth...his sixth one is almost through

Noah crawled in between the fridge and the wall (turn your head to see it up right:)-

This is Cheena one of our close friends. She stopped through on her way out to Tx where she moved to:(

This is what I call "Pharaoh" Noah!

Almost One!

Well it has been over a month since I posted to update everyone on the happenings in Noah's life. His first birthday is bearing down on us quickly! He is now getting close to walking and I think he will be walking by his birthday. He has five teeth through and another couple on the way. We have sent out the invitations to Noah's 1st birthday and my graduation party. We cannot wait to see every one then-the more the merrier! Matt and I are both busy finishing up the semester. We weighed Noah at Publix the other day and he weighed 20.5lbs! One of his favorite pastimes remains opening and closing doors. He is beginning to use sign language to communicate and it is so neat! He knows the sign for milk and we are working on more please, drink, food, daddy, and potty. He also will wave hello and goodbye and loves to clap. We are trying to discontinue the use of baby food altogether, but it has proven as more of a challenge than we had thought. For anyone who has not heard yet, we are moving to Iowa at the end of June. We are excited for the new doors God is opening to us and cannot wait to see what he has in store. We are also sad to be leaving our family and friends down here. We haven't started packing yet, but plan on working on that this weekend. Hope everyone is well and we will hopefully keep this updated better in the future!

The pictures below are from mid April for our invitations

The picture of Noah in the swing is at Paynes Prairie State Park where the party is (mid March).
