Noah has been talking in his bed for probably half an hour now. I put him in for a nap and he just plays and plays. That's fine with me as long as he goes to sleep when he gets done playing. He is so sweet. He gives flirty little looks to everybody. Especially the girls at Adam's work. They all love him. I'm glad. I'll miss everbody so much, but I am filled with anticipation of what God has for us in the future. Please keep us in your prayers.

We were invited to the Eggmans for dinner today. It was so delicious! I had carrot soufle (sp) for the first time. There were incredible mashed potatoes, roast beef, macaroni, corn, green beans, salad, jello salad, cake, rolls, I'm not sure if that's it or not! It was delicious. Aunt Teresa (sp) surprised her mom and dad by coming to visit. Angie, Tori, and Ashton were already expected to come and visit, but Aunt Teresa was a surprise. (I know, I already said that). Noah really enjoyed playing with Aunt Teresa. Jared and Becka (Fetzer) came for dinner too. We had a really great time!

Chilaxin' on daddy's shoulders in Walmart. Yes, that does make mommy nervous.
Look at me and my bad self...uh, huh, uh, huh, uh, huh :-) Noah in mommy's sunglasses at walmart.
Here is Noah in a cute suit outfit that his Uncle Seth and Aunt Beth got him for Christmas. It's taken him a couple months to grow into it, but I thought he was SO CUTE in it!! These are before church on a Sunday morning. Daddy had to run sound, so I had to get Noah and I ready by myself, then daddy came to pick us up and take us to church.

1. Apparently (announcement alert) we will be having another baby in November. Surprise surprise. not just to you, but to us too! I'm kind of scared, but I know God has everything under control and I completely trust Him to do what is best for us and provide for us along the way.
2. I really want to be near our family.
3. The cost of living will be a fraction of what it is for us now.
4. Adam can now finish his degree online from Hobe Sound
5. I'm done with all the schooling I can get from Hobe Sound.
6. Did I already say I want to be by my mom? lol
Anyway, I'm just gonna be honest. I'm so tired of people saying that we can't make it and "what are we thinking having another baby so soon!" and not believing in us. God is our leader and provider. God is bring the new baby to us, so who are we to question HIM? I don't want to be rude, I just want to say SOMEBODY BELIEVE IN US! Some people feel like they have some special connection to God and God only speaks to them and He couldn't possibly speak to us. God has provided for us this far, and if His promises are true, He never intends to stop. I better stop fuming about that or I'm gonna dig myself into a hole. For you of you who are wondering, I am SO excited to be having another baby and moving to Indiana. Yes, I am going to miss Hobe Sound and my friends. Most of my original friends in my class are leaving anyway because they are graduating too, but there are so many other people I will miss. I love everyone.

Yay! Here is Seattle Poling! We had Sam and Lynn over for Sunday dinner. Yes, we mothers know what life is like just after having a baby. To make life a little easier for them, we wanted to make them supper. We enjoyed seeing the baby and chatting with them. Noah slept for most the time they were here, been when he was awake, he wanted to touch her. Of course he would! I kept having to say "no,no bud, no, no!"
Congrats Lynn and Sam! She's beautiful!
Here is daddy kissing baby! so Sweet!
Here we are right before they were leaving to go home. Yes, Noah has gotten a little bigger since that time in our lives hasn't he? You can see I'm holding his arm there so he doesn't touch the baby. Told ya!

In this picture, He is trying to use his feet to push the towel away. lol. He is so funny. He doesn't cry when I take him out of the bath, but if i'd let him, he'd play all day. I wish everybody could see how cute he is when he plays in the bath. I love to watch him play.

Thanks for coming guys! It truly was a blessing! Love you!

His crib used to face ther other direction with the head of it under that plaque (sp) on the wall. I foresee that when he can pull himself up, he'll be pulling on the curtains. Until then, we'll take advantage of this little change in arrangement. Keep things new and fresh!
This is a picture of Tim Cole holding Noah. He is from our home church in Anderson.

Noah is pretty unhappy today. I wish I knew why. I'm looking forward to bedtime tonight to say the least. I did homework all morning and into the afternoon. Adam took care of him today. Probably not a good thing since Noah's having a bad day. Plus I wanna go to Arby's. Well, maybe another day. That's all I can manage for today since I'm fighting Noah for the keyboard.
Great day to All!!

So, I finished giving Noah his bath tonight. I put on his diaper cream and his diaper and dried his hair with his towel. We talked and played throughout the whole process. It was at that point I realized that I forgot to grab his jammies out of the laundry basket in the hallway. (just so that there is no misunderstanding, they were clean clothes that I had gotten out of the dryer not long before). Upon my return, I discovered that he must've tried to follow me or something, because this is how he was:
He was "calling" me by grunting and groaning in my direction. He doesn't like it when I leave the room he's in. I'm sure that it's only a matter of time before those arms and legs start working together and he really does follow me. I'm gonna have to make sure I lift the bar to his crib even if I am just taking one step out of his bedroom to grab his jams. Oh brother, where does the time go?So, after I got him into his jams, I sat him down on the floor to a Veggie Tales video (that I hadn't turned off yet from before the bath) and went to make his bottle. He loves watching cartoons. I don't like to let him do it all the time, but it makes for a pretty good distraction to a tired, hungry baby. :-)
Well, I hope you all enjoyed and I'll write again as soon as I can. I find myself short on time these days now that my online class has started. (It started March 10). Until next time!

This video was actually taken in December, but I couldn't upload it because our computer has a grudge against us. (We like to push it's buttons. lol. j/k. ok, i'm not funny). I have officially outsmarted the computer. *Laughs viciously* I put the videos on a flast drive and put them on another computer to upload them. HAHAHA!! I am successful at last. Just FYI, I might be putting a lot of video posts in a row so I can catch up. :-)
#1: at 9:30 (which was technically 8:30 because of the time change) I said, "please let me sleep 10 more minutes, I'm so tired"
Result: We were 5 minutes late for church.
#2: I ate second helpings of alfredo and homemade garlic bread after 9:00 PM.
result: Lost at least 2 hours of sleep in the night because of upset stomach.
Last but not least
#3: I sat in a rocking chair in the living room eating supper and watching "Kung Fu Panda" while my son cried himself to sleep and wondered why on earth he was crying...he was fed, changed, and in bed at his normal time and he never cries when I put him to bed.
Result: In a sudden panic of realization around 2 AM it occurred to me that there had been a time change, and technically I had put him to bed an hour early with no explanation to the poor kid. Do I feel guilty you ask? Immensely. Fortunately, he's forgotten about it and we've moved on.
The moral to the story is do your laundry so you have clean clothes, do your dishes so you have clean dishes, and feed the baby so it doesn't starve. After that, you'll probably just want to eat a piece of pie and call it a day because life comes at ya fast and sometimes you're just not ready for it. *sigh*

Here is a couple of pictures of family retreat. Adam took Noah on his first four wheeler ride; without my permission I might add. Noah slept like a baby (no pun intended) on the way home because he was so tired. Thank you to Jay and Tanya Slagenweit for the food they gave us and the ride to and from the retreat and wonderful fellowship together!

1. I hate getting my eyes dialated at the eye doctor's office with those nasty yellow drops that sting. Seems like everyone who looks into my eyes for the next few hours can see sraight through to my brain.
2. I LOVE spending time with my husband and son. I already knew this before of course, but I was refreshed today by spending the afternoon walking around with them in the mall. Did we buy anything? not really. Why was it great? We got to spend some quality time together and talk. I love that.
3. In my future, I think a dream I've had has been to build our own house. Of course I wouldn't do the building itself, but it would be cool to build a custom home. :-)
4. I might as well not even try to get Noah to sleep when there are people walking around all around him.
5. From now on for the rest of my life, I will do everything in my power to go out of my way to use the bathrooms at Dillards. They are, by far, the best bathrooms in the mall.
6. Jared doesn't always have to feel obligated to comment on my posts just because he knows I like it.
7. I love butterfinger shakes from Steak and Shake.
8. I wish they didn't cost 4 dollars so I could have one every once in a while.
Those are just a few things about myself that you readers might like to know about me.
