Well, that didn't seem fair to me. A lab practical is hard enough for 2 people to set up. The last time, it took 2 of us almost 45 minutes to do it, and we didn't have to find good specimen to do it. So, I told her to start and I would be there in 10 minutes with Noah.
Noah likes going to my school- it's new, and big, and shiny. He really likes to take the elevator, which is fine with me. So I met Sandy in the Anatomy room, and I started taping down questions, and she went to get the hearts. She put the box down on the floor, and Noah ran over to it. Then she pulled out the bag of sheep hearts, and Noah let out this big "OOOOOO!" Kind of like an excited squeal. He was showing a little too much interest in them, so we told him they were "yucky" and he didn't go by them again.
He did spend quite a bit of time roaming the classroom. Opening and closing the fume hood, trying to reach the safety shower handle, looking at the different models of the human body that we have, giving the skeletons "high 5s". He also stood on a chair and watched Sandy and I tag the hearts, but he made sure he didn't touch anything. Towards the end he got a little bored, so I gave him some markers and paper and he amused himself by coloring. Overall he was a good little boy.
He even brought Sandy his shoe that had come off, and sat down and let her put it back on, while I washed my hands. Then, he gave Sandy a high 5 and said "bye!" and then we left. We of course took the elevator back downstairs, where he took off running down the hallway. He got to meet one of my favorite people, Beth and gave her a high 5. Beth told him to come back and see her, and he said, "okay, buh bye!" and took off again.
So, maybe science is in Noah's future... I mean he does seem destined for it, given what Ryan and I do for a living, but I'll let him make his own decision.

Today, Jaime and her family were visiting her friend Anna. Jaime started to bleed heavily. Anna took her to the emergency room, and currently they are sitting in a room in the ER waiting to have an ultrasound for the baby.
If anyone reads my blog, please pray for Jaime and Bill. Thank you, Anna, for taking Jaime to the ER and being with her. You're a good friend.

Anyway, thanks to his tunnel vision, I got to put Noah to bed tonight. Noah really likes the Sandra Boynton books. He has 5 of them, and every night he picks two to get read to him. He always picks, "Moo, Baa, La La La"- I think Ryan and I have that one memorized, and then he usually lets Ryan pick the second, but sometimes he doesn't. Tonight, I got to read him "Moo, Baa, La La La", and then I read him "Oh My Oh My Dinosaurs", and then I read him, "The Going to Bed Book". He wanted me to keep reading him books, and I wanted to keep reading him books, but then I noticed he was rubbing his eyes and yawning, and could barely keep his eyes open, so I reluctantly decided to put him in his crib. I realized at this moment, that my little boy has really grown up. He's going to turn 2 in a couple weeks, and eventually, he won't want to sit on my lap and look at books. So the next time my husband has tunnel vision, I'm going to read him as many books as he wants!

It was beautiful outside this weekend, so we gave Noah every opportunity to be outside. He loved it. We made him wear his boots, because there were still piles of snow outside, and he enjoyed stomping through them. We also went for several rides in the big red car that he got last year from Auntie Jaime and Uncle Bill. Every time we went inside, he cried, because he wanted to stay outside- but usually we were going in to eat- and you can't keep this pregnant lady from her food!
Sunday, Ryan set up the smoker and smoked 3 racks of ribs. 1 for our very nice neighbors, 1 for us and 1 for our freezer. That night at dinner, we noticed that Noah was getting all stuffy and congested (again!). We set up the vaporizer in his room and put him to bed. He went down like a champ, no moaning or rocking. Yesterday he was still congested and had started to cough. This morning, he was up coughing at 4 am- poor kid, and he was covered in snot. Right now, the positive thing, is that he's still in good spirits and running around. I just hope he doesn't get as sick as he was the last time he had the plague, although it has been a while since we watched "Cars", and Noah does love Mater and 'Queen.

Since there wasn't a football game to watch, Jaime and I labeled all the girls' clothes that she is very generously letting us borrow. Seriously, I don't think ladybug will need any new clothes for her first year of life. They had one gigantic bin of clothes, and then a smaller tub of clothes. While Jaime and I labeled, Liam napped and then Noah napped, and Ryan and Bill played the Wii. Grandma Vicki and Grandpa Jim entertained the boys, until they had to leave early because Grandpa was having eye issues, and we all thought he had a detached retina- he fit all the symptoms. Great-grandma Rose stayed behind for a few more hours and played with Rori. Noah also discovered Rori's Snow White princess and carried her around in a car seat for part of the day.
After Jaime and I finished labeling clothes, the kids used them to jump off of... well, not all the kids. Noah wouldn't jump unless Daddy or Uncle Bill held his hands. Liam was a crazy dare devil boy. Below are some pictures of the day. Please note, that Liam's face is NOT covered in blood- it's frosting from the cookie.
