He's Going to EAT ME!

A few nights ago Clint, Noah and I went out to dinner with my mom. At the restaurant there was this adorable little boy. As soon as we opened the door he screamed "I have a friend to play with!". He quickly came over to our table and began to talk to us and play with Noah. He was 3 and totally cute! Noah really took a liking to him and kept on trying to hug him. I've been trying to teach Noah to kiss me or blow kisses, but I didn't think he was catching on. Whenever he does's very opened mouth and just a general lean in your direction. Well he tried this on that cute little 3 year old and he screamed to me "He is trying to EAT me!". It was too funny!

Hoppy Easter!

Easter was held at my parents house. We had a crawfish boil and other real yummy treats. I made a carrot cake...from scratch! How domestic of me! It was very very good! It wasn't very hard to make either, I was very excited about it! Noah received some really cute stuff ranging from PJ's to hats and ofcourse...candy! It was great to see all the kiddos together. Noah and Deuce were so cute! Noah would hug Deuce, it was really sweet. We had an egg hunt and a pinata. The pinata was quite an experience, it took forever to crack open! The kids all made out like bandits! Abigail loved the bathing suit I got her. I hope everyone had a great Easter!

Raise The Flag!

Panchos has reopened in Metairie and we have driven by it many times since we live so close to it. The lines are crazy long. Clint has been dying to go, so we decided to go over Easter. Saturday morning we woke up (which was around 7) and decided since we were up so early we may as well brave the Panchos line. Panchos opens at 10:30, so we arrove around 10AM...already to a line! We stood in line and within a matter of minutes it was about 30 people deep. Kinda weird to be waiting in line for lunch at 10AM..but beats standing in it for hours (which friends of ours have). It did not dissapoint! It's still as greasy and yummy as ever! However, I wasn't able to eat my flautas with cheese with my favorite Panchos friend, Tiffany. Next time she is in town, we are going!

On The Hunt

Clint and I have begun to look at houses. We found a realtor through a friend and checked a few out today. I was hopeful that some of these houses would be contenders...boy was I wrong! Some were just down right terrible! There was one that we saw that honestly the ceiling tiles were HANGING on top of our heads! I mean...seriously? The first one we saw was very cute, but would need a lot of work. Some just didn't work at all, like for example one had no tub in either of the bathrooms! That won't work with kiddos. We did find one that we really like though! We will keep on looking and researching till we find the right one...we know it's out there!

It Won't Be Like This...for long

The song "It Won't Be Like This For Long" by Darius Rucker comes on ALL the time on the radio while I'm at work. The first time I heard it, it really got to me. It's hard to imagine Noah not being a baby. Everyone says that the time just flies by, and so far it has. But thinking of him being 16, honestly freaks me out! Maybe it's because I'm the baby of my family? Who knows. Either way, check out the video. The lyrics are really sweet...if you are having an emotional day you may want to grab some tissue!

Easter Photo Shoot

Since I spent more than I wanted on Noah's 1st birthday pictures, I decided to try to save money by taking his pictures for Easter on my own. Since it's a spring picture and it's so pretty outside, I decided to give it a try. I took Noah to City Park and tried to captures some good pictures. He barely would look at the camera, but I got some cute ones still. Check them out! Isn't his outfit too cute? My sister got it for him.

Oh how I love pack and plays!

Since Noah is walking and pretty much getting into anything and everything lately, I really cheerish our pack and play. It's one baby item I can say I used from day one till now (thanks to "Pops" for buying it for us). As an infant (say under 3 months) it was great to put him in the bassinet part as he naps. Now it's been great to keep him entrapped! I put him in there every morning while I'm getting ready and not really in the afternoons/night since we play. I know I said this about the jumperoo, but how will I live without this? It will only be a matter of time that he can climb out and I dread that day for many reasons. Ofcourse the obvious that he can't be in one safe spot but the fact that he won't be a baby anymore. However, I could use the extra room in the den to put more of Noah's oodles of toys.

Spring Time

I'm so happy it's now spring. I love how it stays light later, it finally gives Noah and I some time to spend together outside after I get home from work. He loves his swing! He giggles and smiles most of the time he is in it, it's so sweet. Since the weather has changed to being warm, I packed up a lot of his clothes that I figured wouldn't fit him in the fall and moved some to the back of his closet. It's so sad packing up clothes, a few weeks back I held the preemie onesies he used to wear all the time and almost started sobbing. He was once so little, and now he is so big!

And yes, I do mean so big. At his appointment on Monday to recheck his ears he is now weighing 26lbs 7oz (which is about the 75th percentile). He is just so heavy to hold, my arm honestly feels the burn when I'm holding him for longer than a few minutes.

He is walking really well. However, Clint said he walks like a drunk elf! He will get better with time. I have been told by Tiffany that I need to take more videos, so stay tuned for that.
