noah goodness:)

I promise I'll have house pictures next time...we're I've got a couple of more pictures to frame/hang in Noah's room, some tweaking in the living room, and flowers to plant beside the little deck. At the very least, I'll have pictures of our kitchen/dining room next time...hopefully in the next few days:)

--------------------------------------------

In the mean time, I thought I'd share some new pictures of Noah. I'm amazed at all he's doing right now! 

His mind seems to be very mechanical...he spent a good 15-20 minutes opening and closing the little seat on his riding Mater.
He also understands what open and close means, and can do them when asked. Following simple commands like these are getting easier and more frequent for him.

He also spent a lot of time playing with the wheel..seeing how it turned, moving it up and back.

Noah is pulling up on anything and everything he can get ahold of too! A tipped over Mater seemed like the perfect thing to hold on to:)

We've been working with this particular puzzle for a long time. He can pick out the animals by name accurately when asked about 85-90% of the time.

For some reason, he also likes to rub the sticker on the back. It makes a funny sound that he likes:)

We've also been working on identifying parts of the body. Not so successfully at this point, but we've just started...and I realize that he is very young too. But he typically can remember the name of an object and pick it out if asked, so I thought we'd try body parts now. We're working on our nose first...he's only pointed to it a couple of times at this point. 

--------------------------------------------

I cannot believe Noah will be 9 months old next Tuesday! He goes for his wellness checkup that day...it will be his first visit to his new pediatrician. Already I like them FAR better than the others (I won't go into that story again for those of you who never read my old blog..) so I'm optimistic. We seeing a nurse practitioner since the appointment was made with short notice due to the transfer of his records and all...but I really appreciate them working him in. You know..so he'll be there for his 9 month check-up when he's actually 9 months old and not 3 weeks late. Ugh..have I mentioned how glad I am that we've switched pediatricians?!?!?

Next time, I'll have Noah's 9 months update as well as some new house pictures. Then we'll be off next Saturday to the beach for a week! Expect picture overload for that one:)

Looking forward to pictures of the house. Have a great time at the beach.

Thanks for the little Noah fix, Lauren! He's getting SO BIG! You must be having such fun with him these days ... especially in your new house!

Can't wait to see it!
