Water Park

On Saturday, Noah and I met Jaime and Dylan at the Strafford water park. The boys had a great time playing in the water. Dylan is a water baby. He ran and splashed, and drank the water : )! Noah had a great time also, but didn't play any different than he would have in our own yard. He spent almost the whole time meticulously filling cups and refilling cups, then the same with buckets! Oh, well he still had fun. It was also great to spend time with Jaime! Looking forward to the next play date!

Pool Time!!

Noah usually loves pool time. He's been a fan of the water since birth! Ma and PaPa got a fancy new pool put in this summer and we were so excited for Noah because we thought he would just dive right in. However, once there all he wanted to do was throw diving sticks for us to go get. He is almost completely uninterested in getting in the water outside of sitting on the steps and kicking his feet. Hopefully this will change, there's been glimpses of him wanting to get further into the water, but this is definitely a slow process.


As Noah gets older he continues to find more ways to hang with his older brother Dalyn. Dalyn, being 10 years older, does a fantastic job of playing with Noah and looking after him. Noah on the other hand has liked Dalyn from day one.

When the nurf guns come out, Noah doesn't quite get the whole idea of these yet, so he uses this as a time to steal all the bullets his little fingers can grab. Dalyn doesn't seem to mind at all, his patience with Noah is to be commended, and it shows through Noah's affection for him.

Sick little man

Just looking at these pictures you would not imagine that Mr. Noah snapped back to normal in about 24 hours. But did he scare the crap out of us! A doctors visit for a cough which turned out to be pneumonia turned into a hospital stay overnight. I do commend Cox Pediatric as they were all over it! Noah had hoses and tubes run, looked 2 shakes from death, but made it through just fine.
However as only Noah does, he managed to grab the attention of all present, and put to good use the wagons left available for all the sick kids. Noah about wore the soles off Pa-Pa's shoes getting hauled around, but for most of the first day, that's all he could manage
Things came around the second day as someone would have to follow Noah around to hold the oxygen hoses up that drug from his nose! What a Kid!
