Steam Roller

Happy Jude

Last week I got to thinking that Jude should be able to roll over by now. So we laid out a blanket and put him down and the first thing he did was roll right over from his stomach to his back! He is working hard on rolling from his back to his stomach and we think he will have it soon.
We had a great weekend with family and friends. Heather, Brad and Kathryn came over for dinner on Saturday night. Kathryn can now walk, so she and Noah spent the evening chasing each other around. Sunday we went out the beach and spend the afternoon with John and Noushin. Noah got to run around in the sand and we quickly learned that he doesn’t like to get sand on his hands. He worked very hard at perfecting his climbing abilities as to prevent having to put his hands in the sand.
We also got out the exersaucer this weekend and let Jude try it out. Noah was very quick to point out that this was once his toy and showed Jude how to play with it. Jude wasn’t so sure that he liked standing in it and only last about 5 minutes. We’ll keep trying though!

Jude at the Circus

We spent Saturday morning at the Circus! Our friends Bebe and Ted invited us to go to the circus with them and their son Kirby. Noah's friend Emsley and her parents came along too! We all had such a great time and were completely spoiled in a suite at the arena. Jude slept through the first 2 hours, but woke up in time to see some elephants do their tricks. Noah especially loved all of the motorcycles, elephants and tigers! Thanks again Bebe and Ted for including us in such a fun day. Be sure to check out all of the pictures of the kids having fun at the circus.

McDonalds at Disney World

McDonalds at Epcot

We took Noah and Jude to Disney World for the first time on Sunday. Greg and Elizabeth were in Orlando visiting Andrew, Betsy and Annie and invited us to go to Disney with them. We started the day at Epcot and then headed to the Magic Kingdom after lunch. Surprisingly, all of the kids were really well behaved and there were not any meltdowns, Noah even napped in his stroller. Noah rode a few rides including Pirates of the Caribbean. Jude even went on rides at Epcot, including Finding Nemo. And even though we got rained on, it was a really great day! Be sure to check out all of the pictures.

Happy New Year!

We celebrated New Years at home this year with our friends Heather, Brad and their little girl Kathryn. They prepared us a fantastic salmon dinner and then we rang in the new year with a few games on Brad's Nintendo Wii.
Noah has been sleeping in the "big boy" bed for 4 nights and is doing great. He only got up during the first night and he has even been taking naps in there! Hopefully the transition is complete and we can move the crib to Jude's room sometime during the coming weeks. It is hard to believe that Noah is almost 2 years old! In some ways it seems like just yesterday that we learned we were expecting our first son and now we have TWO! We hope that 2008 is another great year filled with happiness!
