Valentine's and More

The FAMOUS self-portraits!! He's figured it out. He's taking after his Boo Boo!! And look how dirty his face is in both.

And he looks just like his daddy at this age in this one!
Oh and this is the picture he took of Chris.....who by the way is playing Noah's Leapster!

We made a quick Sunday night trip to the big town of Farmerville for dinner with Gigi, Pops, Boo and the Hancocks. Noah's showing Pops his bo bo on his toe and dad's aggravating him! Which is exactly why Noah loves to aggravate and pick with me all the time! Between him and Chris, I don't stand a chance!
And he and Gigi were coloring smiley faces...Noah's favorite these days!!
SPEAKING of smiley faces...he's after it again here. Lately I've really enjoyed just sitting and watching him draw and color. It's not that often that he likes to sit still long enough

I feel a little guilty. Before we started Little Red Apple, we had not even attempted giving Noah a big boy cup to drink out of. It was just always easier to pull out a sippy, and know that I wasn't gonna have to clean up a mess. At his new school, they drink out of regular cups. And he's done so good. So now, that's all we use at home. He's always been pretty good about holding on to his plates and bowls, just never gave the cup a thought. He feels like a big boy with us at the table now. And all I ever hear now is "I use to be a baby, like baby Jackson" (Jackie's little man)!
This week has been dress up week! Jay got her note before me, and I loved thee-mail I got from her! It said

Did you get the memo regarding dress up week next week at daycare! It’s going to be fun! We have western day, pajama day, mix-match day!! I feel like I’m in high school all over again!"

She's so funny!! Bu it has been fun!! Monday was favorite shirt day....although I'm not sure that he has a favorite shirt....He is hooked on Scooby. When I put it on him he said "Yay, I love Scooby!" Yep, good choice Jana!

And Tuesday was Valentine's shirt day! I knew he'd like this one, he's all about super heroes these days, thanks to his daddy!! If you asked him what was on his shirt, he'd say "piderman and reese's"! Everything in the shape of a heart these days is a Reese's obviously!

Monday night (of course we waited until the night before...we work better under pressure :), we worked on his valentine's to take to school, and his valentine's box. We went with simple treats, so I printed out some labels with his name for him to color and make special. As you can see, he was working hard....look at those lips!! That means he was concentrating!

And of course he had to taste what he was sending to class. We've never had an orange airhead, it was actually pretty good. Noah doesn't do so well with chewy candies. I don't think that he gets that he has to really chew it up, and it drives him crazy when it gets stuck in his teeth. So, after attempting to eat it a few times, he decided to just lick on it!!

And then we started on the box....I had no idea where to begin until I started digging through all my stickers. So we went with Super Noah and his smiley hearts. It served it's purpose, that's all that mattered! Noah did good drawing all of his smiley faces and mouths.

Valentine's Morning
He normally gets up pretty easily when he knows his daddy is still there, so of course, I planned on doing it earlier so that Chris could see him with his goodies.
He and his teddy bear from Gigi and Pops. They were checking it all out.

And of course, I knew exactly what he was going to attack first....CHOCOLATE!
Ready to leave with his box.

I got a smiley face......
And a SILLY face!!
And then we met his best friend at school!! They were so excited!!

Bubba had a Dr. appt. that morning, so he was upset that he didn't get to go in with them!! But he was also trying to get into his candy!!
My "MINI" Valentine!! I love this little boy and can't wait to for baby Porter join us!! I can only imagine how much fun we're gonna have with two little boys!!
And this is the picture that Chris sent me when he picked him up that day with all of his goodies!!

Here were a few special goodies I got from a few friends. I love my girls!!
Wednesday was Mix Match Day.....this was as good as it got!!

Today is Western Day!! The only thing we had was the red cowboy hat. BUT..I remembered the Woody sheriff pajamas! I was gonna go ahead and put his jeans on his with the shirt...but he's been having a little trouble lately with going to the potty and getting his jeans unbuttoned. So although tomorrow is ACTUALLY pajama day...we're celebrating pajama day twice!! I wish I could wear my pajamas all day!!

My little Woody....
"There's a snake in my boot!"
Even Bubba was ready for Western day!
"Howdy Cowboy!"
And the 3 best cowboy friends! I LOVE this picture!! They love each other! It reminds me of our sister bond!!
Noah somehow weaseled Bubba out of his hat...I heard him say "Bubba needs this hat!"
Baby Porter
I'm pretty sure we're going with Porter Alexander. It's Glenda's maiden name, which I think works perfectly!! These were at 32 weeks...I think! At this point, I'm just counting down!!
So last Thursday, I had my 32 week appt. and sonogram to see how he was doing!! Everything was working properly, he was still a "he", saw lots of hair (well, she did, I couldn't really tell what alot was since he's so crammed in), measuring on track with 32 weeks and he was approximately 4 lbs., 7 oz.!! Which they said was good!! Although it wasn't the 32 week size I was worried's the 40 week! But we will just have to hold out for that surprise!

In this picture, it's his profile at the bottom and his foot is at the top, next to his head.
The top of this pic (which looks like a snail to me) is actually his manhood! And the bottom pic is his profile when we first started. He was sucking his thumb. He actually had his hand in his mouth or in front of his face the whole time. He's shy, like me!! :)

And this is the 4d she attempted...the long skinny thing next to his head is actually one of his legs! They were next to his head the whole time!!
So far so good...we're still trucking along and eating everything in sight!! And we're still being asked if it's twins! I saw sweet Mrs. Jo the other day and couldn't help but laugh when she asked how much longer I had left and then she went from twins to triplets!! I LOVE IT!!

Happy Thursday!!

Out of the mouth of babes
  • "Mommy, you need to go that way! Just trust me!"
  • "This song makes me feel better!" (LMFAO, I'm sexy and I know it!)
  • "Miss Aquanna is my best friend! She's fweet (sweet)!" (his teacher Laquanna)
