Riverbanks Zoo

Saturday, March 12, 2011 was Noah's very first visit to Riverbanks Zoo.  We spent all week talking about all of the animals we would see, so Saturday morning first thing we asked Noah was, what are you going to do today and he said "zoo zoo".  Another cute tidbit while getting ready Noah starting singing "tinkle, tinkle luddle taww"  My heart melted!
This is Noah when we first arrived equipped with his puppy backpack/ leash.  I wanted him to be able to walk around and see and not be confined to his stroller.
ABSOLUTELY adore this picture of Wesley and Noah all tickled at the monkeys going crazy!  Noah's favorite thing about the zoo.
Riding the carousel waiting on Grandpa Jim to come back with ice cream.
So, the main reason for this trip is this.  My daddy had never laid eyes on my precious little one.  So glad for this trip...Noah and Pepaw really bonded!

(Actually yesterday Noah and I got on our Kawasaki Mule to ride around, and I asked Noah where he wanted to go and he said, "Pepaw Dim....monkeys" :)

I am always happy when Friday comes.  I get so anxious and excited to spend that extra time with Noah.  This is my little man looking all suave in his navy dress pants and his little button down shirt this morning.  I honestly cannot wait until it's time to see him this afternoon!  I usually run to the grocery store and pick up whatever we need for the weekend. ( I make sure to have all of Noah's favorite foods and snacks.  I think tonight is going to be a pizza night.  I definately don't feel like cooking after cooking all week long.  )  Then I rush home to clean and fold clothes and do whatever I can to keep from having to clean over the weekend, so it doesn't take away from my time with Noah. 

Just wanted to add a few cute and funny things Noah has started saying and/or doing lately.

When he and I are sitting on the couch or reading a book and he hears something in the other room he looks at me with big eyes and throws up his pointer finger and says," I back"  It is so funny, because I know he's telling me I'll be right back.

He, also, is say yeah a lot lately which is cute how he says it, but not quite so respectful.  So, when he says "YAH" I say "yeah, what?" and he says "ma'am ma'am"

Noah is pretty clingy to me and when I have things to accomplish I have to try to distract him from him wanting me to hold him.  So, I will say Mommy needs your help doing the dishes or mommy needs your help with the clothes.  Since I do that, he loves to offer his help and says, "I hope".  I love it!
Of course, there are things Noah says and does everyday that I think are amazing...those are just the ones that are sticking out right now.

Hope everyone has a good weekend! :)

The Weekend in Photos

I have mentioned in a previous post that my child LOVES being outside!  He drives us crazy with it sometimes. Even when it's dark he runs to the back door and says, "outsigh".  We have to sneak if one of us just needs to run out to the car or check the temperature. :)  So...being that this weekend  the weather was AMAZE and we spent nearly all of it outside with munchkin.  So, I needed to do some housework and it's hard to do with Noah inside with me.  (Normally, I do all of my cleaning/cooking after Noah and Wesley are leaving in the morning or before they come home in the afternoon. )  I sent Noah outside with Daddy and I wanted to take some pictures of them playing and of Wesley pulling Noah in the wagon.  Well, Noah spotted me on the front steps and came running.  A bird flew super close to us and landed near the steps.  This photo is Noah's reaction to that. LOL  he is so funny! 
The next photo is him trying to "ROAR" the bird away
Oh, those baby blues melt this moma's heart
Daddy's hat is cool
Sunday the boys flying a kite together...the squealing and giggling coming from our back yard had me smiling so big!
Slam Dunk!
Hope your weekend was as fun filled and as lovely as our's was!
