Brrr, it's a good day for no school...

As most of my recent posts have indicated, Noah has been sick. Yesterday he really needed me to have a day off, but I didn't. Instead I got to go to school and sit through a bunch of Chemistry final exams and watch a ton of snow fall. I like the snow, I know a lot of people don't, but it always makes me happy.

Anyway, last night, I got "the call", and was told that due to the dangerous wind chill there would be no school on Thursday. I was extremely grateful. Noah needed me home, and now I could stay home with him.

This morning I let him sleep in- he slept until 7:30 and he had gone to bed at 6! He was fairly miserable all morning just wanting to be held on my lap. We looked at books, and watched "Cars" again- not the whole movie, he only likes the parts with "Mater" in them. I was also able to get him to eat a piece of peanut butter toast- he's getting so skinny with not wanting to eat.

Then, I pulled out one of his Christmas gifts (drum roll please)... The play-doh from Eric and Tracy. As soon as he saw it he started saying "play-play" which is what he calls it.

He played with it for at least a half hour, and then he decided to nap. He napped for over 3 hours. When he got up, we watched "Manny!"- he had woken up crying, and covered in dried snot- ew, I know- we had to give him a bath tonight to get it out of his hair.

Then, we played with the "play-play" for another hour.
If you couldn't tell, he likes the green play-doh color the best.
Thanks, Eric and Tracy and Lauren- Noah loves his Christmas present.


  1. At least the snot wasn't throw up this time. Poor baby Noah. I wish everyone would just all feel better!

  2. He is getting skinny, he looks like he's grown too! Grandma loves you Baby NOAH!!!
