Can it really be that I haven't posted a single thing on here since August? I know I've been busy as a new mom and all, but WOW!! Honestly, I've kind of been bummed lately that I became such a lame-o blogger. I haven't kept a journal since Noah has been home ( in spite of the fact that it has been sitting by my bedside for months), so other than the ten thousand photos and videos we have taken, I have no written words of how our life has been since Noah has joined our family. And to top it all off, I'm quite certain that very early Alzheimer's has been setting in for years, so if I don't start writing now, those memories are going to be long gone very soon.
After much thought, I have decided a new year calls for a fresh start. I am going to start a new blog/journal where I can wrack my brain to remember as much as I can of these past five and a half months with our boy, NoahBear. ( Don't know why that's his nickname, it just came out of my mouth one day shortly after he came home and it kinda stuck. And then, what do ya know....we just happened to find the best bear costume ever for Halloween! :)
So, if anyone is still out there and would like to join us on this new journey, come on over to my new blog, "The Adventures of NoahBear" to say hello!

I'm not quite sure how Glenn actually posts videos right on our blog, and since he is upstairs putting Noah to bed I can't ask him. :) So...I figured I would just post a link to two videos of Noah from his first week home. The first is of him being his silly, adorable self! The second is of the director of our agency calling to talk to him. ( She likes to talk to all of the babies when they first come home to try to comfort them and fill the void of missing their foster mommies. It is very, very sweet!! )

Ok...same old song. I have no time to blog anymore!!! It's been almost two weeks since I have posted anything, so I had to at least put up some photos. Noah is doing amazing! We have fallen head over heels for him! He seems to be equally attached to both Glenn and I so far, which we are both very happy about. He has been sleeping each night for 10 - 11 hours.....straight through! WOO HOO!!! He loves to swim! ( I think he may have been a fish or dolphin in a past life :) He LOVES watermelon. ( he's eaten almost two whole ones himself since he's been home!) He loves to eat and share his Pirate's Booty with Simon. And....well, he is just the single best thing that has ever happened to Glenn and I!
