Alright, well last time I had a whole bunch of time during the labor to blog...not so much this time. Melinda wasn't feeling right since about 4am this morning. By the time I got up to go to work we were both pretty convinced that labor was on its way. We got to the hospital around 8:45am, waters broke around 9:45, Melinda rested a bit, then starting at about 11:10 she began to push....3 times....then little Micah Vaughn Flick was born at 11:17am weighing in at 8lbs 3 oz, 21 and 1/2 inches long with lots of dark hair at St. Luke's Hospital.

God has blessed us with 2 wonderful baby boys. Noah born last year on 10/10/07 and reborn at baptism on 11/10/07 and now Micah born on 11/13/08. We truly serve a wonderful and awesome God!

Psalm 139:14I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Here's Micah's namesake: Micah 5:2 - "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times."
Soon to come for Micah - 1 Peter 3: 21: and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

Noah turned one last month


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!

God's Blessings!!

We get excited about the craziest things!

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)

So BIG

Noah had his 9 month doctors appoitment today. He is HUGE. I know I know i've said this before but really he is.

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?

God's Blessings

Noah is going to have a little....

Little BROTHER!!!! We just found out yesterday morning that we are having another little boy. We are so excited, now we just have to figure out the name!! Any suggestions?!?!? The baby is looking very healthy and happy, sucking his thumb and moving around like crazy. He had no problem showing us that he was a boy! I'll try to post ultrasound pictures of our little one as soon as they get scanned into the computer!!!

Melinda
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!!!

Pots and Pans

Today while I was making baby food I brought Noah into the kitchen to play with pots and pans as he does not like to be left alone anymore, he needs to be able to see mommy and daddy at all times! He had alot of fun playing with them but I think he liked chewing on the wire wisk most of all. We pray his two top teeth come in soon so that he doesn't hurt as much!!!

8 months old

Happy 8 month birthday Noah. (yesterday) We can hardly believe you are 8 months old. In only 4 short months you will be a year old. I do not understand where time has gone, since you were born my days are whirlwinds of fun and activity. You are the most amazing little boy any mom or dad could ever ask for. You constantly amaze your dad and I with all you do. Your smile lights up the room wherever we go.
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!!!
Love
Mama and Papa

Noah is 5 months old

Noah turned 5 months old on March 10th. He is constantly changing. He has rolled over from front to back twice now and once from back to front but doesn't seem all that interested in continuing to roll just yet. Noah's favorite toy is his Rainforest Jumperoo by far. There are times when he goes crazy in it.
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!

Noah is 4 months old

Noah turned 4 months last Sunday!!! He is getting very big...we had his 4 month dr. apt. on Thursday the 14th and here are his stats....drum roll please!!!!

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!

Love

SNOW!!!






Today was the first time that Noah got to play in the snow and he wasn't very happy about it. We got about 8 1/2 inches of snow between yesterday and this morning so mommy thought it would be fun to get all dressed up in our winter gear and play. After taking forever to get Noah all warm we went outside and sat in the snow for maybe 3 minutes before he lost it! I am thinking that he was a little bit too tired and the snow was a little bit too bright for his liking!

On a different note...Seth and I have been putting Noah down to sleep for naps and bedtime awake in hopes to get him to learn to fall asleep on his own....and IT'S WORKING...and least for now...who knows what tomorrow will bring!
Blessings

Seth, Melinda and Noah!!

Noah turned 3 months old!!!



Noah turned 3 months old on Thursday the 10th. He is getting so big. I know I am constantly saying how big he is, but seriously he just keeps growing and changing!!!! If I were to guess I would say that he weighs at least 17lbs and is somewhere around the 26in mark for length!! I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by us.

Noah has started to giggle some. Not allot yet, but some! It has been pretty cute. Seth was playing with him the other night and all of a sudden we got a giggle and then yesterday I was singing to Noah and dancing around like an idiot and he giggled at me a few times. Oh how amazing that sound is. I never understood the love that parents have for their children until I had Noah and boy it is amazing. I have a hard time putting him down at times because all I want to do is hold and snuggle him and let him know how much he is loved!

He defiantly has things that he likes and doesn't like already. He loves to be talked to and have funny faces made at him. This gets him cooing and smiling. But he HATES to be hungry. Oh my goodness he gets so mad. I'll have to try to get a recording of this because it is so funny, but sad at the same time. He isn't very patient.

Noah has started sleeping through the night, we've learned to put him down early and he sleeps much much better! He generally goes to bed around 8pm and wakes between 3-5am to eat and then back to bed for a few more hours. Our naps aren't as great yet, but we will work on those soon!
