The Move and More

I just wanted to let everyone know that Matt and Peanut made it to Iowa safely and all of the stuff made it with only minor bumps and bruises. Noah and I stayed a few days with Baga Sue, then came down to stay with my mom. Next week we are going to be house sitting.
Before the move on May 27th, Noah got his first big boy haircut. He looks even more like his daddy now,as if he didn't before!

The first cut...
Look at all his curls...all gone!
Noah's new look! He looks so grown up.
All the hair after it was all finished.
Also, when we loaded Noah's carseat up in my mom's truck, we turned his seat around to face the front of the car. I think he likes it, but it also makes him complain louder because he can see us in the front seat.
Today we went to Kelli Jo's graduation party and found out that Becca is moving to G-ville to be a gator! Noah is getting more and more confidant walking around and will actually take your hand now and walk around. Also, I got my hair cut off again, a little shorter and spikier this time. When Matt gets some time I will have him load pictures of Noah's haircut and I will try to load up pictures of my haircut. Noah is going to Penny's next week for his 1yr pictures. I know it is a little late, but we are going to do them anyways. Well that is all I can think of for now...

more, more, more

This week, Noah started using the more sign! At first he was really concentrating on getting his fingers to touch, but now he signs "more" like a pro. Now we need to work on "Please" and "Thank you!"

Check the birthday post again because I finally uploaded some pictures from the party.

These are some random shots I just thought I would share...
I think these are Noah impersonating Richard Simmons
Noah thought it was his turn to get packed for our move!

Noah's First Movie

Last Friday, Noah and I went with Angie and Isabella to see Shrek 3 for Isabella's birthday. The previews were on when we arrived at the theatre and Noah got really excited at seeing all of the previews. He started kicking his legs and turning around to smile at me. He even joined in, eating popcorn right out of the bag like a little man. It was great. He watched for about an hour, took a brief nap, then woke up to see the end. He was a perfect angel.

Today we went to see Pepe, a renowned dog trainer to help Matt and I modify Peanut's behavior and learn how to be the alphas in the pack. I was really encouraged and we will be meeting with Kim, Pepe's assistant, on Friday to learn some more about this training method.

Noah is becoming more, and more confidant with his walking. Anytime he stands up he takes some steps. Sometimes one, and the most on record now is seven. By the time we fly up to Iowa, we will chasing him around I am sure. This should make the airport experience a little more interesting.

That is all for now...

Noah turns one, mommy graduates

Hi all! I am sorry this is so late, but I have been busy with the party and getting thank-you notes written. We had a great time while the Bolins and their tagalongs were here. Last weekend we went to Tampa and helped get Helen moved. Mother's Day we spent at Baga Sue's house. Matt grilled out kabobs for us and we had a great time visiting with everyone. As soon as I get a chance, I will load up some of the pictures we have from the past couple of weeks.

10:00am I graduate at the O'Connell center.

As I went across stage, I did the Gator Chomp!

Just getting into it!

The aftermath!

Just FYI, Noah is really starting to get the hang of walking! He has taken 4-5 steps (May 5th) on one excursion. I am sure in the next couple of weeks he will be running around here driving me crazy!
