Our Entertainment

Noah has really started turning into a showman, most recently putting on mini-concerts for us, singing his favorite songs and also acting out Sesame Street episodes with his many Sesame Street stuffed animals, especially Grover. He'll mimic what the characters are doing on TV and have his stuffed animals do the same. Since he's into "Super Grover" so much, almost everything in our house can be labeled as "Super ____", such as Super Soap, Super Crocs (shoes), Super Blankie, etc...Here is a brief snippet of him singing the "I Love You" song (from Barney) that I shot on my phone. We got a great 7 minutes worth of video from one of his recent concerts, and we'll try to post that one soon so that you can hear such classics as Rocky Top, Jesus Loves Me, and the Buzzing Bees song.

The boys

Noah had a great time with Eric while he was home for the first two week's after Brenton's birth. They got to spend lots of quality time together. Here are some photos of their trip to World's Fair Park for the Knoxville Children's Festival of Reading. Noah loved the storytellers and watching a superhero parade. He came home with a tattoo and superhero cape :)

Above is a picture of Brenton at just 12 days old. He's wearing a TN outfit for the first time, so we had to document it! He's such a good baby and is just as content as he can be, except for when he's hungry, tired or gassy :) Noah still loves to give him lots of kisses and hugs, but we constantly have to remind him to "be gentle" and "use your inside voice."

The other day, Noah napped on the couch. He rarely falls asleep on the couch and if he does, we'll pick him up and put him in his bed. This time, I decided to let him sleep on the couch. When he woke up, he had a look on his face like, "What just happened?" Noah's also into being a "helper" lately. Last weekend, he "helped" Eric with yard work and likes for us to tell him "Great job!"

I can't believe Brenton will be one month old tomorrow. It has certainly been a big adjustment having two boys, but it's the best life we could ever ask for. We still haven't posted Brenton's birth story and will do so tomorrow, along with his one month picture.
