Well our baby turned one last month. (10-10 to be exact). And he is growing and changing every single day! Today he learned how to open his bedroom door and then push it so it swings open. Not so much of a good thing as he's not walking yet and hasn't quite figured out the whole balance thing 100%. He's working on it and doing great! I don't blame him for not wanting to walk as he can get anywhere within a matter of seconds crawling. :) He's amazing!!
He had his 1 year doctor appoitment on the 13th of October and it was horrible for me (mom) and I don't think he enjoyed it much either. Noah got 4 shots and had to get blood work done to check lead levels since we live in an old house, it was so sad and I felt so horrible allowing someone to hurt my baby, but I am glad we did it as I would rather have him be in pain for a couple of minutes than for a long time due to me not getting him the things he needs to protect him! At this appointment they of course weighed him and all...he came in at a great big 34lbs 9oz and 33 inches long. He is off the charts still, i'm not sure he will ever slow down in the growing department but that's okay I love my big baby!!!!!
Noah is enjoying playing with his trucks (like always) and loves to dance whenever he hears music! It's so cute. I'll have to try to get it taped so everyone can see!
I only have 16 days left until I am due with baby # 2 or better known as Micah. We are anxiously awaiting his arrival and praying (at least I am) that he deciedes to show up sooner than later as I am honestly very tired of being pregnant and all the aches and pains that come with it. I am also very sad to have to give up on some of the one on one time that Noah and I get once Micah arrives. I'm not so sure how Noah's going to do going from being an "Only" to Big Brother. Hopefully he'll adjust fairly quickly and enjoy his baby brother!!!! He just doens't quite understand the whole concept of shairing yet! Haha!
Seth is still working full time at the Seminary and going to school part time. He (we) will be going on vicarage next summer/fall and we cannot wait!!! It's about time right?!?! Ha. He is such an amazing dad and husband. Noah gets the biggest smiles on his face and laughs as soon as he sees "daddy". It's awesome to know that they have such a bond! I look forward to seeing how the relationship continues to grow as Noah gets older and as we add another one to the mix! :o)
Alright well that is all for now. I've got to get back to bed. It's 3am and I'm up only because my lower back hurts so I thought i'd try to do something productive!

So as parents I have realized that we get excited about the craziest things. While Seth and I have known how to crawl for years it is awesome to watch Noah learn these new skills. He is slowly but surely mastering the art of crawling and standing up without our help. Yet again we are amazed at how fast he has grown and changed. I hope you enjoy this video as much as we do! :o)

Weight: 32lbs 5oz
Height: 31 1/4 inch
Head: I have no idea other than HUGE
He is off the charts still but the dr. said he is growing fine and he is developmentally right where he is supposed to be. :o) Most 2 year olds are not as heavy as Noah though and it's getting tougher and tougher on me to carry this little guy around the bigger and bigger I get.
Noah is learning how to crawl...he likes to army crawl...but today he did move forward one step (crawl) which is a first for us. Yesterday he pulled himself up onto his knees. I know we are in trouble soon, he is going to be a monster and into everything. Hopefully he will become less and less frustrated though once he can do what he wants to do. Or maybe not because then I will always be trying to get him to stay out of things.
I am now 21 1/2 weeks along. We are still struggling with what to name Noah's little brother. We have two names picked out. Miles Joseph or Elijah Voughn. I like both of them as does Seth, good thing we have 19 more weeks to figure it out! Baby flick or Jalapeno as we like to call him has started moving around more and more and likes to kick me, i think this is his way of letting me know that he is doing just fine where he is and to not worry. Ha..tell any parent not to worry and I am sure they will laugh at you as this just comes with the job!!!
Well it is nap time for both Noah and I, I just wanted to share with everyone how big our little guy is getting! Do they ever stop growing and changing?

oh and of course this little one is already measuring ahead of schedule for size...he is weighing in around 10oz around...at least 2 weeks ahead of where most babies his age are at! I guess we'll have another BIG one...which is just fine with us...more to love and hug!!!

We cannot believe how big you have gottten. (not that you started out small... I wouldn't call 9lbs 5oz small). At 30lbs and over 31 inches long you look more like a one year old than an 8 month old but we love every single inch of you!! Soon you will be crawling and I will probaly go gray with worry and stress over trying to keep you out of things, but we look forward to the milestones you will be meeting soon!
You have two teeth on the bottom and we are just waiting for the top ones to pop through, we think it could be any day now. You get up on all fours and look as though you are ready to take off. You sit up wonderfully and you are a talker. :o) I love every minute I get to spend with you as does your Papa.
We're not sure how you are going to react when your little brother or sister arrives in November, hopefully you will understand to some extent that you need to share mommy and daddy. I am sure you will be an amazing big brother!! I look forward to watching you play with your sister or brother!
We went swimming for the first time on Sunday at your God Parents house. You had so much fun! You were such a big boy and swam for close to 2 hours kicking your feet and splashing around. I thought maybe you would sleep in the next morning but of course you didn't, I guess there is just so much for you to learn that it's difficult to sleep when you'd rather be playing.
We love you so much Big Guy! You are amazing!!!

We have started baby food with Noah. He has gone through all of the stage one veggies and seems to like Sweet Potato's best. We are now working our way through fruits. Check out the video of him laughing at Seth!

Weight 23lbs 5oz = over 97%
Height 26 1/4 in. = 90% (but we think this is poop...our measurements make him 27in)
Dr. said we could start cereal and then veggies and then fruit! Noah is really enjoying the cereal and we can't wait until we start him on veggies!!!!
He rolled over for the first time on his 4 month birthday but hasn't done it again since...all in time I am sure!
