I had been wondering for a few days if I was seeing correctly.  But yesterday I knew for sure, and this morning only confirms it.  Noah finishes what's on his tray and looks up at me expectantly.  I ask, "more, please?" with signs (sometimes it's a full sentence like 'do you want more bread') and there it is! He brings his hand somewhere between his stomach and chest and rubs with his hand opening and closing (rather as if he's tickling himself.)  So there you have it, folks - Noah's first word is the sign for please(More)

Noah now prefers creeping on hands and knees  - you can see a video on his pictures page.  I also think he went from sitting to crawling once today, but I didn'tt actually see the process.

 

Other pictures are up, including a picture of Jonathan's maze he solved all by himself.

One afternoon we were shredding carrots in the food processor for a salad.  Noah was getting upset, so Jonathan said to me, "You go ahead and give Noah milk; I'll finish the carrots." (More)

We finally went skiing for the first time this year and although it was pretty cold, we did have a lot of fun and stayed a lot longer than we did last year. (More)

I've been especially enjoying my boys the last week or so, having fun watching them learn so fast.  Specifically, Noah's crawling and Jonathan's recognition of numerals and letters. (More)

I lost my planner just before Christmas (as far as I can deduce, in a shopping cart in the parking lot of Jo-Ann's on McKnight Rd - anybody seen it?  Please return it, you can keep the gift cards, I just want the information!)  It had several notes in it about cute things the boys did or said, and I'm sure many are lost, but I do remember a few.  Plus I did write down other things that have happened since. (More)

Noah, as mentioned in Jon's saturday post, has been grabbing for my food, and I have started giving him tiny squashed samples.  This is one of the great differences between him and his big brother, who did not care very much for solid food until at least a year.  Yet it's not like this big boy is lacking any nutrition! (More)

It has been a long time since the last time Jonathan and I went out on a trip together, and Heather suggested that I take the kids to give her some time to clean and other things by herself.

First, we glued all of the dining room chairs, since they have been falling apart more than usual lately.  Then, Jonathan and I changed the oil in the car and topped off the various fluids.

Top right poked through yesterday after a biting-the-counter stint.  Got his second shot and barely cried.  Didn't even need to nurse.  What a tough kid!

The first part of the upper left incisor poked through yesterday, with much fussing, drool (can you say fountain?), and even a little blood.  Note to Mommy: even if you know he's teething, check the diaper anyway.

I put Noah down on his stomach while I swept the kitchen floor.  I heard a little surprised squeak and when I looked over, there he was on his back!  He even managed to hold onto his stuffed Eeyore as he went.

Noah is very interested in his new teeth - he sticks his tongue in and out over them a lot and then goes "bbbbb" and makes bubbles. (More)
