roommates reunited

Sorry it took so long to upload this picture, but here it is! It was so fun to see Stephanie--I hadn't seen her since Hana's wedding (before Noah was even conceived). Deb brought beautiful, new Bonnie (and left Violet at home with Jared). And I always love seeing Missy!

We were able to FaceTime Daniella, but weren't able to get in touch with Hayley. Sorry, Hay.

How did we all get old enough to have kids and stuff?

wonderful spring bike rides

Babies in helmets. Is there anything cuter?

I got this child bike seat for my birthday. It's so much fun to ride down to Nielsen's Grove to see the ducks and frolicking children.

so many pictures of Noah, you might get sick of him

I cannot get enough of this hat. Kills me.

He has 6 teeth!

Noah loves everything about cars (both toy and real ones). He loves the sounds they make, their wheels, the way they taste--everything.
He finally noticed I had the camera.

Naked model.

Loves the piano. And is tall enough to reach it by himself!

Post-bath hair.
First of all, I am NOT going to apologize for this adorable picture overload.

Noah will turn 10 months old in 10 days, but we just had his 9 month doctor's visit yesterday. Here are his measurements:

Weight: 19 lbs 12 oz (30th percentile)
Length: 30" (85th percentile)
Head circumf: 18" (50th percentile)

Due to his lanky figure, he is almost unable to wear size 18-month pajamas (sleepers). I'll have to put a 10-month old in size 24-months!

Noah's Likes:
- baths
- dogs
- cats
- being outside
- music
- bread
- hearing the train

Noah's Dislikes:
- men
- whistles
- being deprived of a nap
- getting his diaper changed

Remember this post when I got some funny pictures of Monte sleeping? Welp, I've done it again. Behold.

I tell you what. This man can sleep anywhere. At anytime. Even when babies are crying in the same room.

book-themed baby shower

My friend, Kjirsten, and I threw a double baby shower for our coworkers, Nicole and Kim. It was so amazing I have to tell you all about it. And show you a lot of pictures from it.
Brooklyn, Sophia, Kim, Rachel, Kelly, Nicole (not pictured: Nikki, Kjirsten).

Who will get them right?

Nicole's present table.

Goodnight Moon- moonpies. Strega Nona- pasta salad and meatballs. The Carrot Seed- carrot cake. Green Eggs and Ham- deviled eggs. The Cat in the Hat- Thing 1 & Thing 2 cupcakes.

Kim's present table.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie- cookies.

Jamberry- raspberries. Stone Soup- veggie soup. Mrs. Wow Never Wanted a Cow- Cowtales. I Like Vegetables- veggie tray.

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish- swedish fish. The Very Hungry Caterpillar- fruit kabobs.

The ladies of honor opening their presents.

Maecy, get ready to help throw a similar shower for Misty in June! It will be awesome.

4 month measurements

Weight: 15lbs 14 oz, 75th percentile
Length: 26", 80th percentile
Head circumf: 16.5", 45th percentile

Noah often rolls from front to back, but has never rolled from back to front (yet). He smiles and giggles all the time and still loves to be outside- we go on at least two walks per day. Pictures coming soon!

picture overload

He biffed it and then went straight for his thumb.

Debbie gave Noah this awesome outfit (it was the first item of clothing purchased for him)! I love it and so does Monte--thanks Deb!  If any of you can't tell, it says "Daddy's little stomper" on the shirt.

Monte just finished his last final at BYU ever! I'm so excited that he'll have the next year off to play with me and Noah. Of course, he'll still be working full time, but think of all of that class/homework time he'll now get to devote to us! It's thrilling to think about.

Noah is getting cuter and cuter everyday! I won't post any pictures this time because I'm "typing" this on my iPad, but many pictures will be posted soon, I'm sure. And if you get sick of me posting them then you are a heartless monster.
