Long Over Due

I know you have all been hanging by your toenails waiting to hear how Noah has been doing. Okay, so maybe not, but I'm sorry for the lack in updates regardless.

Noah is WONDERFUL! He is my chunky monkey yet, still on the bottom of the "graph" but whatever. LOL

He is crawling so fast now that he forgets he needs to watch were he is going. He crawled so fast the other day and whacked himself into the wall and crawled away with a HUGE bump and bruise on his forehead. Owell.... at least now you know he's just a regular kid like all the other kids with bumps and bruises, he's just cuter. (Chicks dig scars, right Poppie?)

He is also finally pulling himself up and cruising around the furniture. But he hasn't shown any attempts to walking between furniture. We are fine with that though since he does need to crawl longer before he starts to walk. This will help balance out his muscle tone.

He still isn't eating very well but his Early Intervention Occupational Therapist has been working with him on this. Thank goodness for Carnations. The little Magoo Poo LOVES chocolate.

Noah also loves taking baths and splashing in the water. Even toilet water *wince* But that's a story for another post.

One story I will tell you today...

I put Lilly in the bath tub so she could get ready for school. I needed to run downstairs and get some laundry out of the dryer. So I went in to my bedroom and told Shane I needed him to get up and watch Lilly and make sure Noah stayed out of the bathroom. "He likes to get in the water!!" I warned him.

So I ran downstairs. I was only down there for 3 minutes TOPS!

I came back up and Shane was holding Noah soaking wet.

Shane didn't listen and get out of bed fast enough when all of a sudden he hears a huge SPLASH!

Just as I predicted, Noah had crawled into the bathroom, stood up next to the bath tub, and leaned over to splash in the water. He got a little carried away and fell in. Shane came running and found him sitting in the tub ALL smiles and Lilly just laughing her head off. She thought it was SO funny he got in the tub in his clothes.

Now I know what your thinking... Kids drown that way!! What HORRIBLE parents! But I promise, we really do watch the kids especially around water (and the toilet). I promise!! So put those worries aside and you will see just how funny this really was.

But, needless to say, Shane lost all bath time watching duties for a while and to fix this problem, I now bathe the kids at the same time. Which brings on a whole new set of laughs.

All in all, Noah is doing great! He's learning to sign (Thank you Signing Time) and he's learning or at least TRYING to speak some new garbled words. But that works for me. He still gives tons of kisses and loves to laugh and play with his big sister.

Baby Mia would love to do the same thing but she is still in the hospital waiting for her new heart. So PLEASE keep her and her family in your prayers. And if you haven't registered to be an Organ Donor, please do so now.

God Bless!!
