Mr. July

Coming soon: Swimsuit Calendar - Baby Edition, featuring Noah as Mr. July.

John and I spent 4th of July with family. My parents bought a small inflatable pool for Noah to play with in their backyard.

 He loved it.

He especially loved splashing around.

And he loved playing with his beach ball. Some things just never change.

The pool even came with a  slip 'n slide with mini sprinklers.
 He already has quite the farmer's tan. Sigh - like father, like son.

In addition to Toy Story 3, Noah also LOVES yogurt.

Chobani to be exact.

He'll often hover around the refrigerator until I open it for him. He either reaches for some fruit or yogurt. But I have to be prepared. If I don't take off the lid fast enough or have a spoon ready for him, he will absolutely lose it and throw a fit (is this the beginning of the "terrible twos"?).

He likes to sit in the living room and eat his yogurt, creating a huge mess as he's still learning how to use a spoon. And don't even think about trying to help him - he's super independent when it comes to using a spoon and fork. He hates it when you try to help him. Even if you try to hold the yogurt cup for him, he'll pry your fingers off. I like his independence and his willingness to eat "like a big boy," but I definitely don't like the mess it creates!

Hence, the no shirt :)

When Noah was first learning how to walk, he'd crawl over to the slide at the playground and try to climb up the opposite way. Since then he's learned how to walk up the stairs and slide down.


But sometimes he does get it right.

He absolutely loves the slide and usually spends the entire time we're at the playground just walking up the stairs and sliding down, over and over again.

One of my good friends Richelle had her baby shower this weekend. I'm beyond happy for her and so excited that Noah will have another best friend :)

As you can tell, the baby shower was Mickey Mouse themed. Noah associates anything with big ears as a "bunny" so of course he kept pointing to Mickey and saying "bunny!" even though he knows the word "mouse." Go figure.

The kids received little goodie bags and Noah quite enjoyed the slinky :)
