He Calls Him Moh-Moh

MoMo, that's what Luke calls Noah.
He really thinks he's saying No-Ah, but with his silly toddler speech it comes out as Moh-Moh!

So now guess what daddy calls little Noah? That's right Momo! It was cute the first couple of weeks but know everyone else is starting to call him Momo! I even catch myself calling him Momo! Poor guy... LOL! I still try get to Luke to say Noah not Momo so that as his speech develops he'll eventually start saying No-Ah!

It's so funny to hear Luke talking, he sounds so confident and so sure of what he's saying but we have no idea what he's saying half of the time! 

My heart is overjoyed seeing Luke and Noah's relationship develop. Luke will put his face on Noah and with a high pitch voice say, "Hi Moh-Moh" and Noah will get a huge smile on his face! Now I wonder what Noah will call Luke when he starts speaking! Uke?

Easter 2014

This Easter we hosted our family once again and had a yummy turkey and ham lunch! This years hit was uncle Doug's elotes! I have a feeling we'll be trying to make them pretty soon because they were delicious and looked beautiful!
It's always fun having family over, and our little family keeps growing! Last year we only had Luke and this year it was Noah's first Easter! He hung out and napped most of the time while Luke played with cousins, ate, opened Easter baskets, hunted eggs, ran around and had a blast! Next year both our boys will be running around having a blast together!
I love Easter! I feel like it completes the celebration of Christmas. December we celebrate Jesus's birth and in Easter we celebrate his finished work! Our God came as a baby in the flesh grew up into a man and then died on the cross to bear all of our sins. But thats not all! He rose again! May we never take that truth lightly, may it not only be special on Easter but may it be what keeps us going every day!

I hope your Easter was wonderful and I hope most of all that you would remember Jesus loves you to death and back! 
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead 1 Peter 1:3

What We've Been Up To

So there went my one a week goal for blogging! I knew I was being too ambitious and ironacly it's my overly ambitious spirit that has kept me from blogging! We've had a lot going on lately, A LOT!

It seems like spring time is always a busy transition for me. 

This time last year I found out I was pregnant with Noah! The munchkin just turned 5 months and is so big. I'm not pregnant this time:) This time we've had so many house projects going on, all which I will hopefully post soon! 

We put in laminate flooring to replace our nasty rug, re-decorated, sold furniture, painted furniture, bought furniture (met tons of strangers off craigslist because of it), fixed up our patio, painted walls, spring cleaned, started gardening, went yard sale-ing, had a yard sale, all this while taking care of a baby and an over energetic toddler... Overly ambitios I'm telling ya! 

Was it worth it? You bet! Somehow we all survived. I loved our house and decor before but now I absolutely LOVE it! It was awesome to see Gods provision through it all too! I will be sharing about how gracious the Lord was in our little makeover! He blessed us with some pretty cool stuff!

So now its already April! CRAZY! Easter is this weekend, Im so excited! Finally some calm back into our lives. Have a blessed Good Friday!

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24
