I Can't Believe he CAN!!

Adam and I were watching an episode of MacGyver on the internet one relaxing afternoon, when I turned around to check on Noah. He was playing on the floor playing with his toys when we sat him there, but when I turned around...he was standing up at the footstool! How did he do it? I have never seen him pull himself up like that before. I'm SOOO glad I didn't miss it. He made Adam and I laugh. He never ceases to amaze us. I am so proud to be his mother. He's such a good and happy baby (for the most part). I'm sure he'll be a great big brother. I've been taking him around to play with other babies a bit more often. I've also been pointing out tiny babies to him. I don't know if there's really anything I can do to prepare him for what is to come. I have been reading Keven Leman's 'the Birth Order Book'. I've been enlightened as I've read tips on parenting the firstborn when the second born comes along. I'm so glad I've read about it to sort of prepare myself to be sure Noah doesn't get treated unfairly or unintentionally 'forgotten' or taken for granted. I'm sure you know what I mean by forgotten... Not that we wouldn't remember that he's there, just that we still spend special time alone with him and make sure he knows we love him more than ever.

Looking at daddy while standing at the footstool:
Trying to play with his bouncy chair toys while standing at the footstool:
there ya go, grandma and grandpa Jones. He goes to all lengths to get to this chair. You made a wise Christmas present decision if your goal was to get him something he LOVED!!! :-)

Here's a video of him when he was standing at the footstool. little booger. I love him!

Here is a video of Noah laughing histerically at me 'sneezing'. I don't know if I just sneezed a lot when I was pregnant with him, or what, but he's obsessed with sneezes. He even laughs when he sneezes himself. He just thinks it's hilarious. I love to hear him laugh, so if he thinks it's funny, that's fine by me! Enjoy!
