kids are fun

Tay and Noah make me alot. They are both silly in their own little ways. Since my mind seems to be going a little more with each pregnancy, I thought it best to write down some of my recent favorite Noah and Tay moments before they are too far gone. And yes, this post is all bullet points.
  • Noah loves Spider-man. I really have no idea where his obsession comes from. Anytime we are at a store, he zones in on everything that has to do with Spider-man. It is actually quite amazing how he can spot him out of no where. So it came to no surprise that when I asked him who he wanted to be for Halloween, he said "pie-er-man". I was a little hesitant when we bought the costume, because he really despises getting dressed up. But when he put it on, it was like he transformed. He kept saying "I pie-er-man" and then proceeded to run around like a crazy man knocking things over and acting all tough. Here is the crazy part, he has never seen a movie, cartoon, or show of Spider-man. He has seen pictures, that's it. I guess the inner boy just knows that Spider-man has some crazy awesome superpowers. I must get a video of him in action.
  • Mark's birthday is tomorrow. Now that our kids are getting older, I wanted them to pick a gift out for Mark. My plan was to head to Target and let them each pick out something from the dollar bins. But when I asked Tay what she wanted to get him she said "roller skates". Now if you know Mark, you know that he has been wanting roller blades for a long time. He talks about it frequently and is always on the hunt for a good deal. So when she said that was what she wanted to get him, I knew we at least had to look. To my pleasant surprise, Target had a pair that happened to be in Mark's size. We bought the blades and I had a "let's keep this a secret from daddy talk" with Tay. I told her that we had to wait for Daddy's birthday and let it be a surprise until he opened it. From what I could tell, she was completely on board....
    However, within 5 minutes of Mark getting home from work that day, Tay says "Daddy I have a secret". Tay then goes on to say " Daddy we got you roller blades. They are like really big. Noah and me made you a card. It's for your birthday". Total birthday secret fail. I guess I should have known that no 4 year old is really capable of keeping a secret of this magnitude. 
  • This baby in my belly has really decided to make an appearance over the last few weeks. I come across this wonderful idea on Pinterest to take a picture of my belly every week. I don't quite make it happen once per week, but at least every other week. It is sort of miraculous how much I grew in just 5 short weeks.   

  • We are hoping to have Noah moved to an official big boy bed sometime over the next few months. My initial plan was to keep him in his crib forever, but now that he can freely climb in and out I had to move on to plan B. Our first step was to see how he did in his crib which we converted to a toddler bed. He watched us convert the crib while we told him about his new "big boy bed". He was super pumped and it was quite cute. After it was converted I put him down for a nap. Before he went down he said "Dido (his beloved dinosuar lovey), Daddy. He wanted to give his dino to Mark as part of his big boy transition. If you know Noah you know how much he loves his dino. If we ever lost him, I think Noahs world would come to an end. So for him to want to give it up, was really surprising...and funny. However, this new founded big boyness did not last long. Withing 20 seconds, he was ready for it back. And we are happy to report that so far the big boy bed is working out quite nicely!  

  • We took a little neighborhood trip to the fire station. Of course the kids thought is was some kind of awesome. Noah made sure to get up in the fire chiefs face and ask for dump trucks on several occasions. You can't win them all.
