Happy 2nd Birthday Noah Tamirat

Noah on his first birthday Noah on his second Birthday.

So Saturday my baby boy turned 2. Some of you probable know that we didn't do alot for Noah's first birthday because he hadn't been home long and we felt it would be to much to have a big party. Well we decided to make up for it with birthday #2. On Friday my parents and my niece and nephew came and Noah enjoyed seeing them again. I think for a little while he forgot to say momma every two seconds. Friday night after noah was in bed we went into party mode. Presents got wrapped or put togeather and laid out for Noah to find in the morning. Balloons got blown up (lots of them) and as soon as we knew Noah was asleep we snuck in and tossed them all over his bedroom floor. He was very excited in the morning and it made getting anything (diaper changed and getting dressed) in his room near impossible because he just wanted to run around and kick the balloons. He got all his presents from Mommy & Daddy and his cousins and grandparents on saturday so he had fun playing with all of those. On Sunday was his first real birthday party. We had the party at a local bounce place and everyone invited adults included had fun. I don't know how people do parties where they have to do all the set up and clean up and plan activities because I didn't do any of that and I was exhausted at the end of the day. Over all Noah had a great 2nd birthday and if you on facebook there are 2 albums of pictures you can enjoy.

Ethiopian families get togeather.

Yesterday was a busy day. First order of business was to get Noah a haircut. He'll be 2 next weekend and we wanted him to have a new haircut for his big day. Not to mention its getting hot here and he sweats "alot". He handled this 3rd haircut like a champ.
After the haircut it was time to head to the park where we would be meeting up with other families that have or are adopting from Ethiopia. There was a playground and a big field for the kids to run and kick balls or throw frisbees and then a beach for digging in the sand and swimming. We didn't get many pictures and none of the swimming but here are the few we did get. Noah was very nervous about the water but warmed up to it by the end of the day...he loves baths and pools but water that moves is scary. My little man with his new "haircut" playing ball.

T&T playing ball..a little fuzzy but it warms my heart. So many cute kids and awesome families.
Next month Noah and I will be flying to TN for a gathering of families from our adoption agency. You can bet there will be a ton of pictures of Ethiopian sweeties that I will post when we get home.

Memorial Day weekend.

So we didn't spend our weekend with parades and barbeques and all the typical holiday weekend things . We did lots of errands and yard work. Noah helping daddy.
Picking up pinecones.

On Monday we managed to have some fun time. We bought Noah a soccer ball and took him to the park

Hanging out in the goal.


SCORE.


Noah loves the swings.


I really think he could spend all day there.

So blessed that this beautiful boy is my son.
