Lots to Celebrate

First of all, Tony and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary on the 22nd with a trip to Niagara Falls. It was our first overnight trip away from Noah and I think I can say with much confidence that Noah had just as much fun with his grandparents as we did at the Falls. He spent the first night with Grandma & Grandpa Wolfe and they spent lots of time outside on the swing and cuddled with him. Then he went to Grandma & Grandpa R*'s house (that translates 'R Starr') and got to help lay 10 yards of mulch!! All the while, Tony and I were having a blast walking around parks and cute villages, eating at the Rainforest Cafe and a cool BBQ joint and watching fireworks over the Falls. Walking from the USA to Canada and back was awesome, it seems funny to walk from one country to the other but we did it and we couldn't have asked for better weather. It's was a FANTASTIC getaway.

Happy 5 Years!!!

Second of all, we had a Memorial Day cookout at Meatball & H's new house and it was, again, beautiful weather and fantastic food! It was so nice to relax as a family and just get to spend time together. We were talking about how this time last year, Jackson was just 1 month old, and now we have Jackson, Noah, Molly and cousin #4 on the way soon! Exciting times!!! Noah got to test out Baby Wolfe-on-the-way's new jungle bouncer and although his feet didn't quite touch the ground yet, Jackson made sure Noah bounced up and down the way it was supposed to work. It was so cute to see them play together! Thanks, Cuz!!

Molly would have been playing too, but she was napping, sweet baby girl!

Third of all, Noah turned 6 months old today!! Seriously, 6 months old! I cannot believe it's been a half of a year already, it is amazing to see how much he has changed and grown and learned in the past 6 months. He had his checkup at the dr today and he is just the perfect little man. He is 18lbs 10oz and 25 in long. Still short and chubby...but again, who can resist those chipmunk cheeks?! We have been blessed with such a good baby, what an abundance of blessings he has brought into our household. And check out Noah's latest accomplishment's certainly not perfected yet, but luckily, he's got some extra padding for when he topples over and he's getting stronger and stronger everyday!!!

Noah is adorable, and I'm glad to hear that you and Tony got to celebrate your anniversary in style. My mom told me about how beautiful your wedding was, all in black and white. That's high praise from her--she's got discerning tastes! And how sweet that Noah has so many cousins already. That's the best way for it to be. :-)

Happy 5 years you two and Happy 6 months sweet Noah! It was nice having everyone over and I'm glad Noah and Jack were able to break in that bouncer!
