Holidays are Just Beginning!

So...for everybody else the holidays are almost over, but for us it's just beginning. Only 2 more days before we leave for INDIANA! We are so excited! It's about time we got a nice long vacation! I'm a little nervous about taking a 4 month old on a 16 1/2 hour drive, but I know we'll have so much fun when we get there. Please pray for us though. Safe travel, good travelling baby, and a relaxing and refreshing vacation. God bless everyone in the beginning of this new year!

Our Christmas Pictures

It's our second Christmas as husband and wife and our first Christmas with our beautiful son. We had our friend Erica take some pictures of us for Christmas and they turned out beautiful. Although there are about 100 of them, I'm just gonna post a few of my favorites. You can look on our facebook profile to see all of them if you want to.

I Love My Boy!

Noah is just getting cuter every day. OK, so I am is mom, I obviously think that, but can anybody disagree??? huh??? No. Anyway, He is so happy and smiley these days. He loves to look around and see everything. He doesn't like to be held toward us, but away from us. He is so curious and gets excited sooo easily. I love watching him learn and grow and discover new things. He's been finding his feet and hands. He'll just watch his feet move with amazement and he'll watch himself clasp his hands together. He makes me laugh every day!

He slept in a chair next to me while I was on the computer. He looked so snuggly and cute. I had to take a picture. My precious Noah. It is times like these that make me want lots of children. (but don't worry, there are other not so cute times that make me want to have NO more children :-)

Baby's First Rice Cereal!

Yesterday Noah tried baby cereal for the first time! I can't believe how much he's growing! Where is my baby going so fast? Isn't he supposed to be my baby forever? It was so adorable. First he made an awful face, but then, after three bites or so, he opened his mouth for the spoon and everything. I had fun giving it to him and watching his expressions. I absolutely LOVE being his mother.

Here are some newer pictures of my little pumpkinhead. I love this boy. These pics were taken over Thanksgiving break. Although I wish we could've gone home to see our families, we spend this Thanksgiving in Ft. Myers. We got to see our adopted grandparents and eat Thanksgiving dinner at the Ft. Myers rescue mission. Noah got to see his first turtles and ducks. It was a blast. We are so thankful for our family and friends and our sweet sweet baby boy.

This is a picture of our first flight to Indiana on October 30th. Noah did SOOO much better than I thought he would. He had a great time looking around and seeing new things. People thought he was adorable everywhere we went. Flight attendants absolutely loved him. He would eat, then smile and play, then fall asleep, back and forth. He barely cried on the trip there or on the trip back. I was completely and totally surprised and impressed. The landings were a little tough for him though. He cried during landings. I just tried to be sure and have a bottle or pacifier for him at that time to help his ears.

All of our families were so excited to meet him for the first time. Aunt Brenda and Aunt Aletha fought over who he liked better. Noah had fun watching them and meeting them. Grandma James had a great time showing him off to all her friends at work (and wherever else). We dressed him in his COLTS football onesie to show our loyalty to Indiana's football team (regardless of the fact that they are stinking up the field this season). Everybody loved his outfit and thought he was so adorable. He just kept soaking up the attention.

Our house was 55 degrees last night. it was SOOOO COLD!! we were under the impression that our house didn't have a heater. Noah had on his PJs, sweats with a hoodie, socks, wrapped in a blanket and 3 blankets on top of that. We now know that we, in reality, did have a heater, and now we feel very...uh...silly. Hopefully we'll never have to endure such torture again.

This week we are getting ready to go home to Indiana for the weekend. We are so excited! By the time this week is out, Adam and I will have gained a new sister-in-law. It will be Noah's first time in Indiana (out of the womb). Everyone is so excited to see him, and Adam and I are so excited to show him off! We got Noah an adorable little suit to wear to the wedding and I can't wait to put it on him!
