Forever now I've been putting off updating my blog. I quit my job and started staying home in November of 2014!!! Wahoo! I'll blog more about that later, but since then I've had goals of things I wanted to get done (because I was going to have all of this time). The last thing on my list is organizing my pictures! I want to get them all organized and scanned in. I've told myself after I do that I'll start back at my blog. Why the 2 had anything to do with each other I'm not sure. I went to a birthday party Friday night and was talking with a friend who had just started blogging and that kinda inspired me to go ahead and pick it back up! My goal is 2-3 posts a week.
I read blogs like it was my job a couple of years ago, but once I got married and had a baby I quit and that makes me sad that I don't have all of that to look back on. My sole purpose is to just document my life. Hopefully this will also make me take more pictures.
This weekend on Friday night we went to one of Noah's friends birthday party at the Country Club! It was a swim party. It was so fun to see how much all the kids have grown. I still can't believe Noah is 3. He could walk all over the shallow end! Last year he could walk on his tip toes and if his head was tilted back! He kept telling Hayes, "Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday." That was a nice change from when we first went he kept saying Hayes' present was his. At the party Hayes got a batman costume and I may have told Noah they could play together now and Noah could wear his Spider man costume. When we got home, Noah expected there to be a spider-man costume present! He would not let it go! I even put his spiderman toys in a gift bag and gave it to him and he was so happy haha. Finally I had to just let him sit on his bed. That kid takes everything so literal these days!
Saturday morning we woke up late, well I woke up at 8 and Noah at 10:15. He's sleeping so late these days. I went and had lunch with Paula, Apollo, and Lexi. Apollo was everywhere and being loud, but I think his Mom was more self conscious of it than others. It's just so crazy with kids. Your trucking along and everything's going great with parenting, they are eating well, they sit at the table, then they hit 18 months and bam its just survival mode, or at least that's how it was with us. I think 18 months til 2 and half was the worst. Three so far has been better. Still not eating, but we can at least reason with him a little. This was my Saturday to get the milk from our milk run, and so I got all that delivered and made it home about 3. Noah was napping and we decided to go see Finding Dory that night. It was so nice going to the Vernon theater. The prices are reasonable, its right here. They didn't even charge for 4 and under because they weren't for sure they'd make it through. After the movie we went and walked at the stadium. We are trying to just be more active and get out and about more. It was fun running and chasing Noah. He kept getting down and bear crawling, crazy kid.
Sunday we went to church and had an awesome sermon on the Spiritual battle that is going on all around us. Pretty crazy when you think about it. After that we ate sandwiches and went to the pool. We decided to get memberships to the city pool this year instead of the country club. Its been so nice. For one, it was half the price, for two there is just so much to do! There is a huge slide that Noah loves to go down. I also took him over to the diving board and showed him the kids jumping off of it. He loved watching them and immediately wanted to try it. He would wait it line and climb up it to the end and then be like I can do it, I'm too big!!! and get frustrated. He sometimes gets things mixed up, like "I wanna hold you" or "I'm too big" when he means I'm too small. It was hilarious. I bet he'll be jumping off of the diving board before the end of the summer. Father's day was ended with burgers on the grill and Keeping up with the Kardashians ;).
Saturday afternoon naps!
