Both boys like to help me with the laundry.  Jonathan can unload the washer completely independently (standing on a stool and leaning nearly all the way in!)  Then he tosses the wet clothes on the dryer door (opens downward to form a shelf of sorts) and Noah pushes or throws the clothes into the dryer.  All while I do something else useful! (More)

As has already been observed, I haven't been so diligent at writing down the doings and sayings of my sons.  Here's what I did write down and what other stuff I can remember. (More)

Monday, Noah walked all the way to the ShurSave on his own two legs.  He also pushed the stroller the last half.  The only exception was that I carried him across Friendship Ave because his walking speed is not yet up to crossing that busier road. (More)

Noah just walked down from the third floor to the second facing forward, holding the railing, all by himself!  This railing is lower than normal, I noted with Jonathan that it's a great way to start learning.

On another note, Noah has another word, "go."

Jon first noticed red spots on Jonathan's tongue and soft palate while brushing his teeth.  Then we noticed bug bite/pimple-like spots on his knees and then Noah's knees.  Then Noah got more and more spots all around the edges of is diaper area and some on arms and legs.  After two days of this, we thought to look in Noah's mouth and sure enough, red spots. (More)

We're back from a lovely two weeks at the best little house in the world.  I'll save time (so much to catch up on!) by linking to Janet's first post and you can proceed through all five entries.  The boys absolutely loved the sand and water and freedom.  It was rather hot throughout the visit, but at least we had the water nearby to cool off in. (More)

Jonathan is pretty good at catching a ball or object now.

He likes for me to print out coloring book pages for him.  But he doesn't want to color them.  He likes to cut the object (usually an animal) out.  He does a very nice job.

He can now reach our lightswitches if he jumps.

Noah can crawl backwards down the stairs, though so far has not made it all the way down before deciding he wants to go back up again.  I'm still not comfortable letting him do it without supervision, so I usually carry him down after he stops making downward progress. 

Oh, and I think he says "ball" now.

Noah can now walk across a room, and he tries walking about half the time.  Video

Happy Birthday, little guy!

Jonathan and I have been singing the birthday song to him all day, and Jonathan's version includes "dear my little brother Noah."  (More)

6/15 - Upper left canine begins to poke through.

6/18 - Two steps in the morning, three in the evening!  He continues to try walking more often, usually one or two steps before deciding that crawling is better.  But yesterday, he did start crawling to me, then stood up before he reached me and took one step towards me. (More)

He is mostly using only one sign now, rather a "universal yes" - it's kind of like the real "yes" but kind of like a wave, and often done with both arms.  Do you want to get down? Yes.  Do you want milk? Yes.  Do you want more granola? Yes.  Etc. (More)

Yesterday, Noah poked a coat hanger into his eye.  All is well now, but I wanted to post the adventure.  My mom wrote up the story after my phone conversation with her, so I'm going to paste that here to save typing.  I'll interject where I want to add details or comments.  Mom's story will be in italics. (More)

This is the weekend for strawberry festivals and several local farms have pick-your-own fields.  Last year, when I was about 39 weeks pregnant, Mom, Dad, Jon, Jonathan and I picked 14 lbs of strawberries at Trax Farms(More)

One is Jonathan at 9 months, one is Noah at (almost) 11 months.  Can you tell who is who?  There is at least one environmental clue in the pictures themselves, but don't look at the links until you've made your guess. (More)

The other day, Jonathan pointed his hand like a gun at Noah and made the shooting noise (not going to try to spell that one!)  Directly in response, Noah pointed at Jonathan and went, "pfff, pfff, pfff." (More)
