Playing Catch Up...

So, it's been a while and a bit of a whirl wind since we have posted due to lots going on. We've loved being in the States in this season of life but are ready to head back overseas and take a bit of a rest. I think you'll understand. Let's see if I can catch you up on what we've been up to...

First, Noah has continued to grow and play with his big sister. He is actually growing out of his new born clothes (now that he's 11 weeks old!) She LOVES playing with her brother and even replacing her baby dolls with him! (Remember "baby Molly" who came to live with us around the time Noah was born? He's getting much bigger than her!)

We're getting ready to watch the Super Bowl in a few weeks... dad and son together, bonding.

First, we drove up to Virginia to see some friends and spend some time with them...

While there, we also got to see Eli (and his parents!!) who shares a birthday with Sadie Mac... they are good friends and we are already planning their wedding!

We left Va and headed down to where some of Stephen's family lives. Sadie Mac's cousin celebrated her 3rd birthday and we were so thankful to be there to enjoy the party! Happy Birthday Parker!

While we were in Ellerbe, some dear friends and family gave Noah a baby shower where we celebrated his arrival and they blessed us with lots of gifts that we can enjoy and bring back to the sandbox!

And after all this traveling, Noah is our family spokes person saying, "NO MORE TRAVEL!!! We're sick of living out of/or in a suitcase!!"

And of course... it's still snowing here in the mountains...

2 Months old!

Noah is 2 months old today and over doubled his birth weight. Just a little 4 lbs and 1 oz. at birth, he is now a hefty 8 lbs. 7 oz!!! He's also grown from 17 inches to 21.5!! He is really starting to fill out too and measures the size of an average newborn! He is rockin' lots of newborn outfits he's been given and we're thankful for how well he's doing. He's really starting to like comics too, and Spider Man is his favorite!! YAY for being a "big boy" now Noah! ;-)
