Do you remember the time?

In honor of Michael Jackson, I have a funny little story to tell.

Tiffany LOVED Michael Jackson growing up. Like seriously loved him. Not sure if many saw these, but Michael Jackson had some candy bars back in the day. Tiffany and I had these chocolate bars (I'm assuming Tiffany had them, and gave me one). We both can't remember the exact story BUT we remember eating the chocolate candy bars and that one melted on a car seat. We got yelled at and were in serious trouble. However, we can't remember what car it was in! It was either our mothers or my sister Monique's. Hmmpf. What a funny little story! When I spoke to Tiffany after hearing about MJ's death she said "I'm sure you don't remeber this...but" and I finished her sentence about the chocolate story. Hehe, funny.

15 Month Appointment

Last Friday I took Noah to his 15 month appointment. Thankfully we didn't have to wait a good hour in the waiting room like my friend had to do earlier in the week. I was dreading the thought of waiting in a room the size of a hamester with Noah running around like a crazy beast, glad things worked out. Whew.
As usual, the first thing we do is get Noah weighed. He weighed 29lbs! No wonder why I feel like my arms are BREAKING when I carry him. He was off the charts for weight. The pediatrician told me to stop giving him as many bottles, so he is down to 3 bottles a day. He gets one in the morning, one midday at my mom's, and then one right before bed. I'm also trying to cut out his puff habit! I am only saving them for dire situations to keep him entertained (like last night out to eat at dinner).
For height he was 32.5 inches. I'm not sure where this falls on the chart, but it seemed pretty normal. Lets get serious, based on his parents height he won't be very tall!
Noah even did some of his tricks for the pediatrician, incluiding showing her where his nose was. He got 2 shots and was less than pleased for one of them. He did just fine for the chicken pox vaccine, but for the MMR he SCREAMED. I felt so bad! It's crazy to think that our kids won't get the chicken pox anymore. Ahh the joys of medicine, right?
Our next check up is at 18 months, stay tuned!
And for your viewing pleasure, some new pics of Noah.

But 29 is SO old!

Last week Clint and I were watching "So You Think You Can Dance". Most of the contestants are late teens or early twenties. There is one lady who is 29. Granted, she looks a bit older than 29 in my opinion. Anyway, when the lady was saying that she was older than the other contestants, Clint blurts out and goes "Well YEAH you are 29, 29 is old!". That got me very sad! It's funny when you grow up and certain numbers are old to you. Like for me, I always thought 26 was OLD! And hello...I blew those candles out last year.


I know this is a silly post, so here goes. When I was about 6 months pregnant (give or take) Ann and I were at Cabrini for a mass (I'm assuming the Alum tea or something). She then realizes that I'm pregnant...for some reason it just sunk in! She even shed a little tear, we were both cracking up. I always remember that story, it's really sweet. Well fast forward to the present and I'm still in shock that I'm a "mom". Weird, I know. I knew I always wanted to be a mom...and I do remember the pregnancy and HELLO bed rest, but it still amazes me that I'm a MOM! When I think of mom's, I think of terribly ugly holidays sweater vests and minivans. So far I haven't gotten myself into one of those fab vests, and no minivan for me...yet!

Where's your nose?

My mom has been a great teacher to Noah lately (and I think my neice Abigail has helped her). Noah can now point to his nose, eyes, ears, mouth, and head when he is asked. I know this doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's really cute!

In other news, Noah's favorite game to play is Peek-A-Boo. He could play it morning, noon and night. He thinks it's hilarious. He will just sit in his highchair (or wherever) and cover his little faces with his hands and then when he opens them he cracks up. He thinks it's the best game ever.

Corks and Canvas

I've been to Corks and Canvas 3x now. It's one of my favorite things to do! If anyone wants to go...I'll go with you! The first time I pained a house with Angela. I think it was my worst of the 3, it's hard for mine to look good next to Angela's! The second time I went with a group incluiding my sister, mom, aunts and family friends. We did another house, which I think turned out GREAT! However, my last one was my favorite. I did a streetcar. I went with Ann and her coworker, it was fun. It was Ann's first time, but she did fab!
