we haven't had too much going on around these parts here lately. mike is on vacation right now so we're enjoying a nice, laid-back staycation! it's been too hot most days to take noah out and about so we've been laying pretty low just relaxing at home. we did go to grants farm today with my mom and niece, grace early this morning before it got too hot. i'll be back with a post & photos of that soon!

mike, noah & i decided to head up to kirkwood one day last week to escape our small apartment and get some fresh air & of course custard. the heat here in missouri is getting a little bit ridiculous so a cold, sweet treat was just what the doctor ordered! i also used noah's baby carrier for the first time out and about on that day & he loved being able to face forward and people watch. he was totally content [until he was overly tired as seen in the photo below and started having a mini-meltdown, poor little guy]
kirkwood is one of our favorite little hangout spots. them amtrak station is right in the middle of the little downtown area & mike loves to railfan so it's right up his alley. i love walking around downtown & visiting the farmers market so it's a win-win for us! & baby noah just loves going wherever we take him :)

my sweet husband became a first time daddy just over three months ago. before we had noah he seemed slightly nervous about things like holding him and changing his diaper. i think to his amazement the role of "daddy" fit like a glove. he was the first one to change noah's diaper after the emergency c-section that neither of us anticipated. he also snuggled our sweet baby like an old pro each day and night that we spent in the hospital & everyday after.
sweetheart, thank you for taking care of me and baby noah. you work so hard for us so that i am able to stay home and care for him. you are a blessing in our lives each and everyday and i am so thankful for you. i love sitting with you and making "a-goo" & "ooooooo" noises at noah, hoping like crazy that he'll make them back (it's beyond adorable when he does!) and thank you for giving me much needed sleep at night when you can by taking the late shift, we both appreciate when i feel sane haha
i look forward to so many more years with you. and many more experiences like the ones that we share everyday with noah, they're all so special. from the seemingly mundane to the awesome and exciting times when he does something he's never done before. i wouldn't want to be on this beautiful journey with anyone but you. i love you.

noah at one month:
Thursday, April 19, 2012
on a lighter note, noah had his one month check up at the pediatricians office today. he weighed in at 7 pounds 14 ounces and was 21 inches long. our little guy is growing so fast! he also had to get his second hepatitis b shot and only cried a little bit, mommy gave him snuggles right after :)
being a mommy is by far the most exciting adventure i've ever been on. the days are pretty routine right now since noah still pretty much sleeps in between his every three hour feedings. huge highlights are when we get smiles from him, it seems like there are more and more each day. he also just became big enough to really start enjoying his swing, he's usually out like a light within five or ten minutes of being buckled in. i feel so blessed to have such a happy & sweet baby boy and amazing husband.
