23 months old!! WOW! What a difference! (and while it may look like it, I really haven't used the fake tanning stuff on him...he just holds that tan color really well, lucky duck!!)

As I'm sure many of you know by now...we know this next baby's gender. I spent a lot of time agonizing over whether we should find out or not. In the end, I decided that Aaron did things my way the first time, so we should do things his way this time. And it didn't hurt to know so we could know which way to make the baby bedding.:)
At the ultrasound, the technician was very thorough and even explained that where you might find problems, our baby was healthy and growing very well. We decided that she would write the baby's gender on a card and we would open it later together. I know that may sound a little weird, but it made it more intimate and fun. We opened it the next night at dinner with friends.
So, for those of you who don't know, and for the blogs scrapbooking purposes, Noah is going to reveal the baby's gender...if I can hold him down long enough to say it:)

We just got back from taking a trip to see my grandma in Arizona. We had so much fun and it was nice to introduce Aaron and Noah to Grandma. I know Grandma had a lot of fun too...she kept talking about hiding Noah when it came time for us to leave. Thank goodness we kept Noah in our sights the whole time, I don't know what I would have done if she would have kept him:) We spent the weekend relaxing, enjoying some quality time together, eating some great food and even finding some time to play too. Here are the pics from our weekend...
So, go figure...it was warmer in Indiana than it was in Arizona!!?!?!!
What a happy group!

I was pulling some pictures off of Aaron's camera from our trip to AZ and saw some from way back when...Labor Day with Aaron's brothers and sister-in-law. So here's a blast to the past (atleast a few months:)) We took a trip to Indianapolis and visited their zoo...Checking out the Lions, and hear the Noah roar!
This picture cracks me up! This is Uncle J & Auntie Mary's dog, Reese. These two had some moments of real bonding. They were barking and growling at each other, fighting over toys and this dog pillow:) They were the best of buddies...and I still hear Noah talking about Reese the dog and reminding me how she barks!:)

Vacation; Part 1~ We had such a good time on vacation, but we did so much, its hard to remember it all. Aaron could only be with us for the first week and then it was just Noah and I. The time with Aaron there, we really didn't see him. Between work and golf and friends, he kept himself pretty busy. Noah and I tried to take it a little slower. Being pregnant puts a whole different spin on things. We were able to see lots of people, spend some quality time with family, enjoy all my favorite foods and spend LOTS of time drooling over Papa's go-go (motorcycle). The first week after Aaron left, we hung out with friends, spent the days at my parents house and enjoyed just being in Colorado. The second week, my mom took the week off of work and we worked on projects. We were able to get a lot done-including organizing my parents pantry, shopping for presents, and working on stuff for the new baby's room. I found a baby set on ebay that I liked so we bought that and decided to make the missing pieces for the room ourselves. The lady that sold us the set had made the bumper, bedskirt, comforter and a floor blanket. So my mom and I made the curtain, diaper stacker and recovered the mobile so that it matches the rest of the room. The trip home was relatively smooth, thank goodness! This was the first trip I had been on where I had both seats to myself for both flights. The Lord knew I would need the extra space to spread out and give both children PLENTY of room:) I was wondering how I was going to make it work with my big belly, a small confined space and an active and overly tired toddler. He slept the whole first flight and the time in the airport was spent on the train that went from one end to the other while Noah serenaded our fellow travelers with various sound levels of the phrase "Moe choo-choo". Needless to say, Noah is definitely not my shy child!!!!! The second flight consisted of Noah insisting on "own seat" the whole time while trying to see how far his cars would fly when launched and oogling over a couple of motorcycle sale magazines. All in all, we made it home in one piece without any major catastrophes. Below are the pics from the beginning of our time there:
And of course, what better way to watch the news with Papa than all bundled up and warm!!!
Like father, like son! Everytime we take a picture now, this is the face we get out of Noah. Its like he's sucking in air while opening his mouth as wide as it will go.
My old biblestudy group got together again and Evan is a month younger than Noah. They had so much fun playing together.

There's nothing that makes you feel tough like talking on the phone while in the back of a tough truck!
Now let's be serious this time, okay?
