Loving Life!!!

I am having so much fun staying home with little mister. His personality is starting to come out- he's a very entertaining little boy!

We're enjoying spending time with our friends here in Arkansas. We love it here so much!

I've also been non-stop busy doing never ending projects around the house. Here is one of the latest- I completely re-did our dresser. I wish I had taken a before picture. I'll just say it was light oak colored with brass handles. I'm so happy with the outcome---and I feel so domesticated!

More pictures of Noah...

And to end, Jared and I celebrated our one year anniversary on Saturday the 20th. We had a blast! Rifka watched Noah on Friday night, then on Saturday we went out for mexican, a great walk, and cheesecake. I loved it!!! I love being married to Jared---best decision I ever made!
We both gave each other homemade presents this year. I made Jared a picture album highlighting the last year. He made me the board game that you see below- it was awesome.

Esp. for you, Mom

My mom asks me everytime that I talk to her on the phone if I have any new pictures of Noah. :) I promised I would put some more up, but just realized I haven't really taken any since I lost my battery charger. Well, no worries, I ordered a new one off of amazon, so I'll start taking more pictures. I've been pretty busy trying to put the house together and get things in order after the move. So, I apologize for all those that I need to call back! We finally just got the internet in our house too. Anyways, here's the latest Noah pictures I have. :)

Jared & Noah at the airport in Kansas City- on our way home to Arkansas!

Noah kind of smiling in his swing. BTW, Noah has been smiling so much lately- it's the cutest thing ever! He also makes really cute sad faces- I try not to laugh.

What a sweetheart!

The journey to Arkansas

As most of you probably already know, I've arrived happy and safely to Arkansas, my new home! Here is Noah and I at the airport in Salt Lake- I was a little nervous about taking a 6 week old on an airplane, but he did great...didn't even make a sound on the airplane. He's such a good little boy...I am so lucky!

It was amazing to see Jared again in Seattle- we had fun at Caleb and Becca's wedding- congrats you guys!

We also had fun taking Noah to his first MLB game- Mariners vs. Yankees. It was soooo fun- we think Noah liked it too...he was smiling the whole time (although not so much in this picture, but he still looks cute!)

I love my boy!

Noah LOVES his daddy! He always gets happy when Jared holds him...it's so cute.

I love being here in Arkansas- so much better than Utah. Don't even get me started.

I'm not sure when I will be able to put up new pictures because I actually lost my camera charger in the move :( So I guess I will have to buy a new one, but my camera takes a specialized battery- oh great! I'll work on it to try to keep everyone updated. BTW, Noah is 7 weeks old today- time is flying by. I love being his mom. More later!

A note from Noah

Mommy says I am growing before her eyes! I'm finally starting to get a little bit too big for my preemie clothes.

I love all the attention I'm getting. Here I am with my Aunt Kallie- she left for Provo last week. I already miss her and want her to come visit me in Arkansas very soon!

I went to Idaho yesterday to visit my Uncle Kyle and Aunt Lynette. We had fun, except for when everyone watched a scary movie and I could feel my mommy being scared. It even made me start crying. But I still liked being there.

I am starting to smile and it makes everyone so happy. Everyone is trying to tickle me so that I will smile at them. Ahh, life is good!
