A Penny for Your Thoughts...

It seems that most of my silly stories are about Noah. Don't be fooled though, Asa has had his fair share of silly moments too! Just the other day I was cleaning with Asa when he found a penny. He began to inspect his new treasure. I watched his face light up as he turned it over. "It's daddy!, it's daddy!" He shouted as he shoved the penny in my face. He was absolutely ecstatic! I couldn't help but laugh at the thought. I even let him carry daddy's picture around in his pocket for the rest of the day.

Toot, toot!!!

Just the other day I was driving the car with Noah and Asa in the back seat. Noah got really excited and shouted, "I farted!" Realizing that Noah will be starting preschool in just a few short weeks, I took this opportunity to teach my sweet 3 year old some manners. I turned to Noah and said "Can you please say toot next time?"

Even more excited, Noah smiled and shouted, "Toot, toooooot! I farted!" I'm worried he may be the class clown.

America's Next Toddler Model

We had family pictures taken this past week. We had fantastic photographers that did wonderful with the boys. The boys were soooo smiley that day too! I turns out that Noah is a model in the making. (I cringed as I typed that last sentence.) I don't know if he has watched too much Top Model with his Moppy or what but he was a ham that day. He was striking pose after pose for the camera. See for yourself.

They did take pictures of the rest of us. We weren't quite as enthusiastic as Noah though. And just for the record we will be eliminating America's Next Top Model from his television time.

Toddler Bling

Noah has discovered what a wonderful place Chuck E. Cheese is for children. Jeremy and I have discovered what a nightmare it is for parents. Even still, we like to treat the boys and take them there on occasion. After a few visits we have accumulated enough tickets for Noah to pick out a prize.

The glass display case was right at eye level for Noah to pick the perfect prize. I cringed when I saw its contents though. The majority of the items were a choking hazard for Asa. What would Noah choose? Heaven forbid he wanted the creepy crawly fake bugs. Yuck. Surely he wouldn't pick the neon whistle, I hoped. I had my sights set on the Chinese finger trap. I was already envisioning Noah with a finger stuck in each end, crying for me to help him. That's when I realized Noah had already picked his prize. As the young lady retrieved it from the case and handed it over to Noah, he let out a squeal.

Much to my surprise Noah had a picked a $ sign ring. I'll never understand why. It absolutely was the highlight of the trip though. I even snapped a couple of pictures so I could tease him about it later.

Ice Cream, I scream!

Kids are a joy to have, sometimes. Yesterday we had one of those moments that reminded us of the happiness only a child can bring.

Jeremy had just walked out of the kitchen with a bowl. I caught a glimpse of him pulling a spoon out of his mouth and asked, "Are you eating ice cream?" He shook his head replied, "potato salad." At this time Noah realized Jeremy was eating and shouted, "ice cream!" He rushed to Jeremy and said, "I wanna bite. Ice Cream!"

Jeremy shrugged and held a spoonful of the potato salad out for Noah. Without even looking Noah engulfed the spoonful. I wish I had a video of his reaction because words don't do it justice. A look of pure horror came over Noah's face. His jaw dropped open. He was unable to swallow the potato salad. Jeremy and I laughed hysterically at his reaction for a moment. Then Jeremy asked Noah if he wanted some more ice cream. Noah was quick to respond with, "No! Yucky. No more."

I feel bad that we may have ruined ice cream for Noah but it was kind of worth it for that reaction.
