Noah is Ten!

Ten years ago early one morning our first grandson was born, Far Guy and I missed his birth, but as we walked into the maternity ward, a small baby was screaming while he was getting his very first bath by his Father..yup that was our grandson! He was perfect! I had very little baby boy experience since 1960 when my baby brother was born, I do have nephews but they all lived far away when they were little. Noah has taught me many things... about diaper changing, the BOY way, playing cars and trucks, and making funny vehicle noises. That little boys will crawl up any ladder, they will spend hours trying to drive the lawn tractor, that you can't leave keys in anything..because they are so mechanically inclined..they know the sequence of starting the three wheeler. Little boys are an adventure waiting to happen!
Far Guy and Noah in July of 1999

My how he has grown, he is going to be one tall dude! This is our daughter, Jen and Noah. Do you suppose he will surpass his Mother in height by the end of the summer? At 5'8" (I think..what kind of Mom doesn't know exactly how tall her child is?) Jen is no short person. She is a couple of inches taller than me and I used to be 5'6"... I asked Far Guy.. He said " IS she taller than you?" Anyway, I predict that this child will be eating them out of house and home soon, as he continues to grow like a weed! He finally added one more vegetable to his list..he will now eat green beans, along with his other favorite vegetables corn and raw carrots. This is a milestone..for a very fussy eater. I asked how he is doing with peas..still can't get them down..just like his father. Noah is trying more new foods all the time, he no longer just refuses to try. He is growing up!

You never get too old, or too tall for a kiss from your Mom! Happy Birthday Noah! :)

  2. I was just thinking "oh what a cute kid, and I love the kiss picture" when I remembered to click on the pictures to enlarge them. What a suprise to find another pair of feet behind Mom and Noah in the first picture :) Who is hiding?

    Kisses for Chance!

  8. It is so hard to believe that they were that small at one time. I think about that everytime I look at my 18 year old. He was a very cute baby.

  9. Oh yeah...he will eat them out of house and home. My son is 24 now, but when he played basketball in H.S. he would eat a half box of Cheerios for a snack and drink a half gallon of orange juice with it. He ate his cereal out of a large mixing bowl! Just wait......

  11. Mom and Grandma enjoy those kisses while you can still hang on to him.... when they get taller than you it can be quite the challenge.

  12. He's one cute fella!

    As for eating peas, put some honey on the knife to make them stick and then when they go down they taste sweet! Yum!
