Rocket Man

Christmas Morning

Surprised that Santa knew he wanted a fire truck! With the recycling truck that his big sister gave him (he gave Lily the game of Hungry, Hungry Hippos).
Noah gave Mommy a book that she is excited to read...
Discovering his stocking...
Opening more presents with Daddy...

National Christmas Tree

On Christmas Eve, we went to see the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse near the White House. Noah loved watching all the trains set up at the base of the tree.Lily was excited to see Santa!

And standing next to Kentucky's state tree.
We had a great time walking around and enjoying the holiday decorations on a beautiful winter day!

Noah's (latest) favorite book

His airplane book tops Noah's reading list these days... and he loves to "read" along with us.

Cookie Thief

Noah is now tall enough to reach the countertop. This morning, he pulled a ziploc bag of cookies of the countertop... and apparently figured out how to open it. I found him (and his accomplice) looking sheepish while eating cookies at breakfasttime. Too funny!

Hey Paparazzi... no photos, please

Animal Sounds...

... with a little help from his big sister.


Noah loves broccoli. I am not kidding... LOVES it. And when I say love, I mean screaming, hand-clapping, you-would-think-it's-a-cupcake love. Now before anyone starts asking me how I get him to eat veggies, here's the honest truth: I have no idea! I think I've done the same things we did with Lily, but notice Noah's plate (chicken untouched but veggies devoured)...
...when compared with our little carnivore's. Go figure!


Noah and Lily had fun hanging out in Louisville to celebrate Pop's 70th birthday.

Noah, Lily, Josiah, Katey and Aurora Hugs for Aunt Mandy (and the "cheese" face he has just started making... smile)
With Daddy and Grandma Lois...
...and Daddy and Great Grandma

Little Artist in the 'ville

Noah takes after his sister... he loves to draw! We had fun visiting our friend Davy's studio while we were in Louisville. Lily had fun too!

Intense convo among the artists...
Bring me a canvas!

Noah hearts the ocean

At our visit to the Natural History museum this morning, Noah was very chatty as we walked through the Ocean exhibit area. And once he saw the aquarium with a coral reef habitat, he did NOT want to move. Every time I inched the stroller away, he made it clear he wanted to stay put. Lily was a little frustrated, because she would prefer to spend all her time at the dinosaur exhibit.
