Noah fell into the bathtub, babies are crawling!
I have decided to use this website to keep a diary of sorts. I am sad that I haven't done this everyday since Noah was born, but I figure better late than never...Nick continues to be out of town for work. He is in Bakersfield right now, and it is really hard on all of us, especially Nick. He misses the kids so much, and feels like he is missing so much. We are able to talk to him on the webcam, which is nice but not the same obviously. Both babies have started crawling now! Levi first crawled last Wednesday, which was December 2, and Micah crawled yesterday on all fours. Micah has been dragging himself around in what Papa called his "elephant seal" move, and he still does that a little, but is actually doing the full on crawling thing now. They are soo cute! They follow each other around, and they follow Noah. I just never tire of being amazed at seeing two adorable babies at once, doing all the same things together. All of my children are such blessings to me. Today, Levi also pulled himself up in his crib to the rail on his knees. Neither baby has taken the step of pulling all the way up onto their feet, but it probably won't be long at the rate they are going! They just learn so much right now, literally changing on a daily basis. I get sad about it a little, and wish they would slow down a bit! Life is sweet. Today Noah fell backwards into out big bathtub with the tub full of old, cold bath water. I was right there and pulled him right out, but he was really scared and cried. He said he "drowned" in the bathtub. I have to remember to never leave bathwater in the tub again. It could have been so bad if I wasn't there. I shudder to think. We went to my Mom and Dad's today around 3:30 pm, since Nick wasn't going to be coming home. I made beef stroganof because Mom wasn't feeling well. Papa took Noah to the grocery store with him. He told him "You know what Papa? I just love you". SOOO cute! He told me the other day "Listen Mommy, I just have to say, I love you"! He talks sooo much, and is so smart, and understands so much about emotions and feelings. My baby boy is growing up too fast. I am a very blessed woman!
The best husband and father a girl could ask for...He loves God, me, and our boys with all his heart.
Noah is our little blonde hair, blue-eyed wonder! He is a curious, talkative, and sensitive little boy. He loves ambulances and firetrucks, doing crafts, and he calls Minnie Mouse his wife. He loves helping me do things, like making cookies and scrubbing dishes. Noah is an awesome big brother, and brings me joy everyday as I watch him interact with his three little brothers.
Our firstborn twin, Micah can often be found with his thumb in his mouth, dragging around his blue silky blanket. He squints his eyes when I ask him to smile, and poses for the camera. He loves avocado, and he calls his baby brother "beebee". He melts my heart when he calls me "mummy"!
Levi was a feisty baby, and he is an even more feisty toddler! He loves to snatch toys from his brothers and run, just to hear them squeal! He learned how to climb out of his crib at 20 months. He brings shovels full of dirt into the house. He may make big messes, but the world stops when he tells me "hold you".
Our fourth son is such a blessing to us! He is a very smiley boy, who is getting more vocal with his cooing by the day! He has one dimple, and blue eyes just like his big brother Noah. We think they are clones! ;) We are so in love with our newest addition, and are enjoying every minute of watching him grow already!
