I love alot of things about my son. There actually is not much I don't love about him. But, one particular I have enjoyed lately is the surprisingly loud pitter-patter of his chunky feet throughout the house. He walks as though his feet are made of solid lead, a trait I say (and my mother-in-law agrees) is from his father.
Noah is not a big fan of shoes, so almost all of the time his feet are bare. For some odd reason, this week he has decided that he wants to wear his cowboy boots that his beloved DeDe bought him, all over the house. So the pitter-patter has changed into more of a horse's galloping. Seriously-he walks so heavy! (also, imagine a grumpy/wild little boy! he has been quite crazy lately!)
A sweet memory from my childhood was brought back to my mind. I used to love cowgirl boots. Still do really. I very vividly remember my mother taking me to Walmart to buy me cowgirl boots when I was probably around 5ish. They were black and very pointy and, I'm sure, a huge sacrifice for her to even afford to buy for me, since we did not have much money. I wore them everywhere with everything. I can specifically remember wearing them with my PJ's on and walking all over our wood floors in our little white house, that eventually burned down. I also loved that house.
So it was very sweet to see my little man galloping around the house in the boots I think he now oddly loves, totally reminding me of myself years ago, probably completely annoying my mother. It made me forget about my frustrations of raising a wild little boy, and really savor this hilarious moment with him.

signed, sealed, delivered

Today we closed on our first home! It has been such a long and crazy ride and we are so excited to finally be homeowners. I love our house, it is more than I ever would have dreamed would be my first home. From the picture, it looks a bit scary, but after renovations, I really think it is going to be amazing. I can't wait to see the house evolve into our home, as all of the renovations complete and we put our final touches on it. We will be moving in just in time for Christmas, ready to start new traditions and make wonderful memories in our first purchased home!

I literally feel like this house was handed to us on a silver platter straight from the hands of God. There is no other way to describe how we were able to get it and how many obstacles tried to get in our way, but how God opened every door in such a unique "God" way. There is no denying, this was the house He had for us all along.

The Pumpkin Patch

We had a great time visiting the pumpkin patch! This year was much different than last year, trying to sit him up wedged in between pumkins ! He was very into trying to pick all of them up and eventually settled on picking out a few tiny pumpkins to take home. They now adorn my mantle, but not for long as he keeps pointing at them. We got some great shots of him and this will be a fun tradition to keep on each year. I had a fun/difficult time making Noah's pumpkin shirt, but thankfully you cannot see the imperfections in the pictures!

Here's to blogging...

Some days I can't even believe I get to wake up to this face every day. Such a joy!
Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this blog. I think it is a fun way to connect with friends and family and to share what is on my heart. It will also be a fun way to for me to look back and see what we have done and experienced through the days.
So...Here's to Blogging!
