Today Noah turned 6!
I can't believe it's been six years since this little blond hair boy joined our family. He keeps us on our toes. Some of Noah's favorites this year are:
Food: Fried Chicken Legs
Song: Star Wars Theme Song, and When I am Baptized
Toy: Legos, Handcuffs and Star Wars Figures
Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Drink: Orange soda or Root Beer
Movie: Star Wars
Game: Lego Star Wars
Ice Cream Flavor: Chocolate
Animal: Turtles and Newts, (because they start with N)
Noah always cracks us up and has the best jokes. He is full of energy His favorite thing to do is jump and do flips on the giant bean bag. We often find him doing summersaults from room to room instead of walking.
Since our move Noah has started to really love singing and primary (the children portion at church). I attribute this to the male singing teacher they have in our primary. He is our neighbor and now Noah thinks singing is so cool!
Noah is very caring and a good helper. In his school class there is a boy who has a special speech problem. The teacher has told the class they can all be helpers to this other little boy. Noah has become his best friend and loves to play with him. When I've talked to him about this he says, "I don't care that I can't understand what he says all the time, Mom. We just like to play together. He is fun!"
Noah prays that the new baby will be healthy and not sick every night. He is the only one that will sit still and wait for her to move. He is going to be a good brother for her.
Noah is such a good sport about taking his medicine. I think it would be hard and I would complain if I had to take a medicine twice a day that I didn't like. But he takes it without complaint. He loves to go with me to refill it and picks a different flavor every month.
Food is very important to Noah. He loves to dream up "food machines" and draw them for me. If he could invent these they would make whatever food he wanted, whenever he wanted. He wants his very own slushy maker for Christmas.
Noah wanted a pretty simple birthday this year.
He wanted to play with his cousin Keegan,
he wanted to go to the jumpy house,
he wanted a slushy,
and he wanted to play video games.
For lunch today we drove to Sonic and Noah got to pick out any slush he wanted.
He choose an orange cream slush.
Then this afternoon Keegan and Daesha came up and we all went to Kangaroo Zoo!
These boys were a whirl wind of action!
I could hardly keep up with them and where they were going!
They had a blast!
A couple hours later they were all tired and hungry.
We headed home for hot dogs, cup cakes and ice cream.
The only disappointment he had was that we didn't let him play video games (because we only had 2 controlers and there were 6 kids).
But he was pretty happy with the Bionicle movie he got to watch instead.
Happy Birthday Mr. Noaha-Lowa
You're a great kid.
We all love you very much!
