Commuter Rig

We actually did it. It felt good too, like I actually accomplished something ( for those who know the distance from home to school to work, you are probably laughing). It was more that I was organized and prompt enough to do it than the physical part.

The fact that Noah seems to love to ride really motivates me. Sadly it's back to rain for a bit.

15 Months + 7 Days

Noah had his 15 month appointment and SHOTS usual he was a champ.

Official MD readings:
Weight - 25 lbs = 50%
Height - 31 in = 80%
Head - 19.5 in = 95%

Doc said little dude has surpassed his milestones. His movements, balance, strength, dexterity (if 15 monther have any) and teeth are ahead of the game! It also appears, much to his daddy's disappointment, Noah will be a righty. Mike was hoping for a left hand MLB pitcher.

A few non-technical updates:
Noah is into everything and on the go non-stop. He can be momentarily distracted with food, remote controls, cell phones and water.
Noah loves to close doors, steal produce right off the shelf in the grocery store when I'm not paying attention and to tell the dogs NO! Wonder where he got that?
Noah is saying the standard, Ma, Dada, dog, nana (for banana), nite-nite, NO, mo (more), ook (book)...I think that's pretty much it. He does try to repeat what we say but mostly just makes similar sounds.
Noah loves, loves, loves his books, his ride-on toys and playing in the dogs water.
Noah is very independent, he knows when it's time to go. He waits at the front door, goes out the door, across the porch, down the stairs and to the gate which he's getting better at opening and then walks to the car. Yikes! When we're home the same but in reverse, walks to the gate (I have to open since he can't reach over to open, up the walk, up the stairs, across the porch, in the door and then he makes sure he closes it. He's got the routine down!

As you can see eating has yet to become a tidy experience.
Noah's very own cell phone given to him by the US Cellular guy today...
I think that's pretty much it. He's growing, healthy, happy and charming. Can we ask for anything else?

A trip to the park

Noah was lucky enough to get a sweet new ride for Christmas.

Helping daddy get ready for the ride to the park.
Ready to climb in.
There's nothing cuter than a little one in a helmet!
The first leg was lost on him since he had my phone.
So serious about being on top.
King of the playground!
Loving the tunnel slide.
We've been having the most amazing weather and have been trying to enjoy every last minute of it before the rains come. Every once in awhile I getting a sad feeling about missing the MT weather but then we get to enjoy days like this in January and that feeling fades very quickly.

Noah showing off his teeth. This particular day Noah decided to scream each time I raised the camera...little stinker!

This is also a test post, trying to post multiple pictures via email blogging.

Noah's day at the beach

I'm still cleaning up sand! Noah was lucky enough to spend all day Thursday with Dad. I was lucky enough to get photo updates.

Papa fishing...test post

Apparently you can’t blog from and iPad but you can from email….this is a test email post with picture.

If it works…this is a picture of my grandfather during his commercial fishing heyday. I snagged it from his garage and had it “remastered” or whatever you call it. I love it!

I keep trying

I guess it's my computer....I haven't had a chance to take picture so I thought I would finally share pictures of our family portrait shoot from this summer that I had been keeping to myself.

It was going to be it's this...

All Noah

So I've been trying to post...this is what's happening. Anyone else having this problem?

Maybe I should call it art?
