Noah, my little boy, you are two! Not a baby any more and being gone for almost two weeks I see you differently now. You are a great big brother already, "tittin" the baby sisters all the time. (kissing)
You are my little helper, always trying to do what I'm doing when you see you might be able to help. You also want to do EVERYTHING that big brother does. I'm sure that is helping you grow up much faster than I want!
You talk in almost complete sentences now, something that really bloomed while you were at Nana and Papa's house. But you're still not always easy to understand! You ask questions about everything and they're very appropriate to the situation. Besides "why" which you've had for awhile you now ask, "What happen?" and "What dat, Daddy?"
You are a little ham and keep us all laughing! Daddy told a silly joke at Christmas about a duck asking the guy at a lemonade stand for grapes. Every day he comes back and finally the guy says "If you ask me again I'm going to glue you to a tree!" and you love this joke. Now you come and ask me, "Glue tree, otay Mom?" as if you're going to glue ME to a tree! And you think this is hilarious!
You have firecracker jammies and when we ask you if you're a firecracker you say "Boom!"
You say "Uh oh - Bey-yo-yo" for Uh oh, Spaghetti-O
Nana also taught you a poopy diaper song and now you sing, "Poopy diaper, my spesh-al-ee" (specialty) (Also, thanks Mom)
Your favorite characters are Mah-nee and Yanni - also known as Mater and Lighting
Your favorite color is orange - Grandpa is proud! You know most of your colors too!
You love Elmo and "Cookie Mah-tin" and looking for the moon!
You want to "nuggle" with your "bue bi-ya", but it usually only lasts for 30 seconds. Still, you're my little love bug, kissing me all the time and saying, "I love you too, Mom". And then when you're done snuggling you say "Ti-toe me" and I do and I love to hear you laugh!
You try to play the Wii with Daddy and brother. When you play Mario Kart you are always last, but you don't care and you throw your arms up in the air and proclaim "I lose!" just as happy as if you'd come in first!
When you are sad you wipe your tears away with both hands and it is the cutest thing ever.
But most importantly you remind us to pray. At dinner and at bed time. You fold your hands and put them up on your forehead or sometimes even on top of your head. And when you pray you remember all the people you love.
Never forget to pray, buddy. We love you!
