3 months older and wiser too!

My baby is 3 months old as of Friday! Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaattttttttttt? This is so crazy! Sometimes I feel like I just had the little man yesterday and other times I feel like we were never without him! He is growing up way too fast. How did my baby go from this:

To this:

His thigh is now the size of that boppy!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!! hahaha, just kidding. I dressed him in a 6 month outfit today and teared up a little as I put away his newborn and 0-3 month outfits that don't fit him anymore :( Noah does something new every single day. It's so exciting. One of our favorite times is first thing in the morning. Noah is usually just kicking and cooing and usually greets us with huge smiles when we go to pick him up! He loves to play the burp rag game with his dad. That's when Tyler tickles his face with the burp rag and Noah smiles and giggles. It's sooo cute :) He is quite the entertainer. We were at a baseball game a few weeks ago and as soon as Noah woke up from his nap, he was all smiles for the ladies around us. Should I be worried? hahaha. He has a slight ring of baldness below the circle of bald in the back of his head right now, but don't worry.....he's still cute!!! We love him more and more each day and can't imagine our lives without him.

A Few Highlights:

He prays.....just kidding, but he folds his arms.

He laughs.

He chews on his whole hand.

He takes baths with his lil ducks...thank you Tyler for strategically placing the ducks :)

He loves to pose for pictures.

Ok, maybe not. Photo shoot over.

We love you Noah Vann....Halen/Helsing/Morrison/illa Matlock!!!
p.s. We are still not sure how he ended up with blue eyes and reddish/sometimes blonde looking hair...

So, I saw this video on my friend Nelson's blog. I am not a fan on Lady Gaga at all, mainly because she wastes so much time trying to be different. Don't even get me started on her wardrobe. Her songs are catchy though. Tyler and I usually end up getting them stuck in each others head. haha. Anywho, she should have stuck with this get up. I still can't believe it's her. She has such a good voice, too bad it's over shadowed by her fugly outfits.

Weekly Recap

Tyler started work on Monday. He is enjoying the work, but comes home looking like he rolled in the dirt. It's pretty hot. Hahaha, just kidding, but what is hot is his sexy farmers tan....

Noah had been sleeping clear through the night for awhile, but is now waking up to feed in the wee hours of the morning as if he was a week old again. I don't think taking steps backwards is supposed to happen, but oh well. I also think he may be teething slightly. I dunno. He's drooling like mad and sucking on not one or two fingers, but his whole hand. Can't wait for that.

Here's a pic of the little guy. Check out the slippers. So. Cute.

I am flying home in fifteen days, but who's counting? We got my ticket for $40 which was a killer deal, but today I was on their website and it's now reduced to $19.99, Say what??? Also, there are some flights for $10 in July. That's a hint for my family (come visit)!!! I am somewhat nervous about Noah on the flight. I hope he doesn't have one of his infamous meltdowns, or there will be some major dirty looks coming my way. I also pray for no blow-outs, but they always seem to come at the most inconvenient times so I suppose it's inevitable.

I got released from nursery...YAY!!! And, got called to scouts....BOO! (Trying to be positive about this :) I go to my first pack meeting this week and also a den meeting. Whatever they are. I have tons of paperwork to fill out cuz I guess they have to do a background check on me or something. I will be over the weeblos. Heaven help me!

Tyler got a second calling. Young mens softball coach. He likes it, but has zero time with all his jobs etc... Anywho, we went to watch on Wednesday night and I got eaten alive by mosquito's. Um, it's not even summer here....Anywho, I had bites all over my arms and so I went to our medicine cabinet and put some itchy medicine on them. The next day, I woke up to find my whole arm swollen and red. Today, it's still red so I went and took a gander at the itchy cream. Turns out it was Tyler's from college and it expired about 2 1/2 years ago. I am hoping that this is the reason for the swelling and redness and hopefully it will go away as I have now stopped using it. If this is not the case, I am in trouble.

Today was actually a nice day. First time we've been out walking in about 2 weeks. YAY!

Boomer Sooner!

I was dressing Noah today in this outfit and had a flashback to when Tyler and his friends thought it would be cool if we named him Boomer after Tyler's favorite team. I'm sure glad I stood my ground on that one ;)

Holla at my boi!

So, it's still raining here. Two weeks plus...and going strong. I feel bad being mad because I know it's good for the crops, but come on. I haven't left the house for about two weeks with the exception of church and maybe a quick run to the grocery store here and there plus I'm not really a farmer myself so I don't have any crops to worry about. Cabin fever anyone?
Anywho, this enough about that. I wanted to give my man a shout out. Right now he's working ten hour days doing construction and when he gets home, he'll be umping a baseball game for the city plus he's mentoring kids through a state program for about 10 hours a week. As most of you know, Tyler is a teacher so this is supposed to be his break. The way his salary is set up, he still gets paid through the summer for teaching, BUT because he's awesome he's working extra jobs. We want to pay some things down and save a little. I feel so blessed to have such a hard working husband. He's so good to me and not too shabby on the eyes either;) Even when I was a raging pregnant ball of emotions (which he kindly reminds me about), he was the BEST. He is so cute with Noah and even takes him out to the living room on Sunday morning, just so I can sleep in. I am truly spoiled!

Goose Creek Reservoir

We decided to have a picnic on Memorial Day. I checked the weather and it said mostly sunny. So that morning, we woke our shorts on, packed a picnic and headed out. We decided to go to Goose Creek Reservoir because we had never been and had heard it was pretty. The drive was incredible. Seriously driving up a road only big enough for one car at a time, surrounded by nothing but HUGE drop offs. My head was between my legs for most of the drive. I don't do well with heights :) Anywho, wouldn't you know that as we were driving there, the heavens opened and the rain came pouring down. So, we basically parked and ate our picnic in the car and then came home. It was still nice to spend time together :) Here's some pictures. I would like to go back when the weather is nicer, but this shows how high up we were. haha.

I love how there's snow on the mountain in JUNE!!!!!!

Refusing the get out of the car. haha.
