Boo at the Zoo!

This past weekend we took Noah to Boo at the Zoo with all of his cousins. I've never been and I'm glad we took Noah. It was great to see all the kids dressed up on costumes, and some adults too! For kids more RJ and Georgia's age they had games where you could win prizes, a place to trick or treat and a ghost train.

They also had a haunted house, it had a scary side and a not scary side. Well we all went on the scary side (minus the babies they stayed with Monique). RJ didn't know we were doing the "scary" side and I have never seen the look of terror more in his face! He was screaming as loud as he could and was honestly scared out of his wits. Hopefully...he won't remember this and still go on Pirates, Haunted Mansion, etc. when we go to Disney World for Christmas. All in all it was great fun! We waited about 35 minutes for the ghost train...and wow was it hard to hold Noah that whole time! I'm sure he is 20lbs now. I had to place him on my shoulders because he just got too heavy to hold! I doubt he will be standing/walking by it shall be a good time waiting in lines with him at Disney World!

Pumpkin Patch Fun

This past weekend we took a drive across the lake to visit Clint's mom. While we were over there, we went to the pumpkin patch at the farmers market. The weather was nice and I hoped to get some great pictures. Well, for the 1st time in Noah's life he wasn't cooperative! He has such light eyes, I really think it made him upset. I didn't get many pictures, but I got a few cute ones I suppose! Clint's mom got Noah his 1st pumpkin! Stay tuned for pictures of that! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Vanessa Lauren Wolff Scholarship Fund

Last night Angela, Ann, Jenna and I had our fundraiser for Vanessa. For those of you who don't know her story please visit After many ideas thrown out there we finally decided on the scholarship. We hope to raise enough money to provide a scholarship to a student at Cabrini who writes an outstanding essay on drunk driving.

Things turned out great last night. It was great to see Vanessa's parents and see all of our hard work come together. I am so proud of our classmates who came together for this. I know Vanessa is looking down on us and smiling.

I'll sleep when I'm dead!

Noah has nights when he sleeps all through the night...where other nights he can be up every 2 hours. We go to bed every night wondering what type of night it will be. Recently Noah has woken up the past 2 nights. Sunday night it was around 11:30, so I wasn't fully in the hardcore sleep mode. The worst is when he wakes up at 4AM, when we wake up around 6. Talk about bummer.

Now that I think about it...I never understood the term "sleep while you can". You get a lot of the "OH you just WAIT" advice from moms when you are pregnant. I just took it all in and now I really understand the lack of sleep. I thought the all nighters I pulled in college would be similar...or if I was up all night with insomnia or ill..but nothing compares!

The first few weeks of Noah's life were VERY tiring. He was up every 2 hours, and the first few weeks I had an alarm set to wake him up JUST to feed him because he wasn't gaining enough. The days were long, sleep was non exsistent and I couldn't live if I didn't have a loaded caffeine drink daily from Starbucks.

A Swinging Time!

This past Sunday we were in search for a baby swing for Noah at a park. We first ventured to the Lakefront. Unfortunately, none of their playgrounds had baby swings. So we then drove to City Park. We found some swings!!! However, they were near a big group that were obviously having a family reunion. You know the type, the matching shirts, balloons, the whole nine yards. We decided that we didn't want to intrude, and to try another venue. We then went to Pontiff Playground...or Metairie Playground for those who may not know the new name. We found baby swings! Yay!

Noah loved the swings! He had a great time. We definetly need to go back and let him swing again. It was a breezy day and he love the cool air on his face. Here are some pictures.

But, everyone else is doing it!

So I decided to do a blog. Everyone else seems to have one, so I jumped on the bandwagon. I'll use this site to put updates about Noah and whats going on. To see Noah's pictures, please continue to go to our shutterfly account.
