I’ve shown Noah some things on the computer that he really enjoys watching. Over and over and over again. And then crying when it’s time to stop. This of course also means that every time I take a glance at my email or intend to jot down a blog entry, he starts squawking to play with the computer. I’m a freakin’ genius.
Mark had fun at the Extreme Makeover: Home shoot. The crowd was electric and he felt he was a part of something. Of course that something was heavily branded by Dewey construction and Sears. Anyway, he was glad he went. And we already caught a long glimpse of him on our local news coverage of the event. I can’t wait to see if he turns up on the show. It’s scheduled to air April 30 – keep your eyes open for a really tall guy in a Drexel T shirt.
The weather here is heavenly. Yesterday afternoon we went to the park and had a chance encounter with Noah’s posse – Frannie and Tripp. It was just too nice NOT to be at the park. After dinner we took a walk to the library and the liquor store – we ran out of Noah’s brand of Tequila. Today Mark’s Dad and his wife are coming to visit and I’ve requested they meet us at the park rather than the house. It’ll be nice for them to see him climbing and voyaging about rather than just stuck inside gazing out the window with longing in his heart.
Noah has become quite the climber. He can clamber up into just about any chair. It makes me proud and scares the crap out of me. Of course I’ll probably be saying that about Noah for the next forty years of my life. The thought of it makes me proud and scares the crap out of me.
