Noah says and does so many adorable/funny/crazy things right now, and I know I'll never be able to remember it all. Yesterday, while playing with Jonah, Noah got upset that Jonah had taken one toy that he must have really wanted to play with (even though he had like 40 other little characters on the table already) I said, "Noah, at least it's keeping your brother happy!" Noah said, "Yeah, but when will I be happy?" Oh brother!
Noah will randomly burst into song..which isn't new, but at least now he mostly knows the right words to the songs and I can usually figure out what he's singing! Typically right now it's TobyMac, PowerRangers, or a Christmas song :) he loves to sing Jingle Bells!
He knows almost all of his alphabet by sight - He will be in preschool next year as his birthday falls after the date for kindergarten sign ups.
He still loves playing with cars, action figures, and is currently loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! He also knows several older shows, thanks to his PaPa! This video shows him talking about "Marshall Dillon!"
Noah played soccer this fall for the Greenwood Boys and Girls Club. His team was coached by his daddy and they were the Bulldogs! He loved being with his new friends, Landon, Jaron, Gage and Trinity - but when it came to actually playing the game he really wasn't into it that much. Alone, he does great, but when the other kids steal the ball away from him, he just kinda shuts down and gets upset.. he spent a lot of time crying on the field, or sitting in my lap crying! He decided that he didn't want to do basketball yet, but wants to do T-ball again in the spring!
Noah LOVES TobyMac right now! For an early birthday present, Gama took him to see his first concert: TobyMac and Jamie Grace! He knows all of the songs on the Eye On It cd and loved singing along. He even got VIP backstage passes (thanks to my boss, Dr. Jennings!!) and got to attend a Q&A session with Toby!! When he got home late that night, he was so excited and kept saying that it was sooooo loud!!!
Noah is in love with his cousins, Taylor and Tinley! They are 7 months old now, and he loves to hold them, feed them, entertain them...he loves it when we go to Aunt CC's house and we say that he's in charge! We will watch him from the kitchen and listen to him sing to the girls and play with them. He loves to say "who's gotcha? Noah does!" A few days ago he even made up his own little game to play with them about a little sharkie coming to get them! LOL! I got it on video and Carah and I just cracked up!! He is so sweet with the girls and you can tell he just truly loves them so much! It has made him very excited about the prospect of having a sister!! He says all the time that he loves the baby, and if he's in trouble he tries to change the subject by saying "good baby!" and patting my tummy!!
Noah turned 4 years old on October 21 this year. He wanted a Samurai Power Ranger party! We had a lot of fun with all of his friends and family. We celebrated at Nana and Papa's house and the yellow Power Ranger, Emily - Noah's Favorite!! - showed up! Noah knew almost immediately that it was his aunt Jenny and when I asked him how he knew? "I knew by her words." Such a smart kid! Of course, knowing that it was her didn't stop him from getting a little shy/nervous and needing to hide behind me! The picture above really shows his sensitive side...I wiped some icing on my sister during a picture, so of course she retaliated, but with BLUE icing! Noah thought she was hurting me or something and came running up to me crying and trying to make sure I was okay! He has such a tender heart!
