Noah is 10 Months....and a half by now...

So Noah has been Ten months old for the past week or two. I'm a little late on the blog, but oh well. Life has been kinda crazy. I can't believe Noah will be a year old in just two months. That is crazy! I should probably start planning some type of one year festivities...

Anyway Noah is just growing in leaps and bounds. He is learning so quickly and I feel like he picks up something new every day! This week has been a busy one with Ciara & Dakota's wedding, Tom working and going to school, and me helping out with musical theater and all of the wedding preparations. I Love when things are busy, but I'm glad they've kind of quieted down a bit. I love getting to spend every day with Noah, even though some days feel a little lonely and lack in adult contact. I am lucky to be able to stay home and watch him learning and growing.

Noah is a full time walker (and climber) now. I feel like he has been determined to walk since the very moment he was born. He LOVES moving, he loves exploring, and he is so independent. He is always walking around examining everything in site and trying to figure out how it all works. He is such a smart little kid! I feel like I can never keep up with him he moves so quickly and is so curious!

Because of all this curiousness he tends to get into trouble a lot. A few of his favorite things to do are turn the TV off and on, push buttons on the remotes, dump over Coco's water bowl, open the toilet seat and play in the water, and get into all of the cabinets and pull things out. I have to be extra careful to keep the bathroom doors shut at all times now. He always knows when he's doing something bad. He makes sure to be extra quiet and then gives me a little grin when I catch him. He also thinks that "no" is the funniest word ever because he laughs every time I say it to him.

Noah loves everyone. He is always saying "hi" and smiling at strangers. As soon as he meets you he wants you to pick him up. He especially loves Grandpa Jensen who always plays with him and sings to him (which I unfortunately don't have an pictures of....). I'm glad I have such a social little baby.

He is also such a boy in that he loves playing with balls, and dirt, and looking out at cars from our balcony.

He loves his dad SO much! We always wait out on the balcony for him to come home after work, and Noah get's SO excited when dad gets home. He also gives the best smiles while  taking pictures with daddy!

He learned how to high five, and give kisses this month. You guys...getting kisses from your baby is probably the greatest joy in life. Oh man it's just so cute! One day I said "can I have kisses?" a few times and then he just did it! It is so cute and I love him.

I just love hanging out with this crazy cool kid every day! He is so happy and loving and cute and I'm lucky to be his mom!
