in the daddy lounge chair

a couple of weeks ago, ryan was sitting on the couch holding noah.  we had the tv turned on for a few seconds to catch the news and noah was so funny the way he was lounging on ryan while watching tv.

3 months old!

this little chicklet turned 3 months old on november 21st which was right in the middle of the nutcracker.  so, of course we had to dress him in his nutcracker outfit for his 3 month photo!

noah's first nutcracker

wow, wow, wow . . . we are done with nutcracker #1 which is by far the harder of the 2 nutcrackers.  this year was even more interesting with a 3 month old added into the chaos.  

noah was such a trooper and spent countless hours at the theater.  he rode around the halls in his stroller, napped in my office, played with his grandmas, and kept a close supervising eye on the tech crew.  of course, noah had adorable nutcracker pajamas that he wore twice to the theatre!

a very, very big THANK YOU to both grandmas who helped to watch the little man during the long tech days, rehearsals, and shows.

a few snapshots from this year's nutcracker . .  .

thanksgiving 2022

we had a lovely thanksgiving last week with our family at my parents' house.  my mama went all out cooking a delicious feast.  we stuffed ourselves and have been enjoying leftovers for days!  believe it or not, i didn't take many photos and the ones i took didn't turn out so great, but at least we have a few to look back on since it was noah's first thanksgiving!

love, laurie

dentist in training

ryan was brushing his teeth the other day and noah was very intrigued by the electric toothbrush.  he even held it while it was vibrating to "brush" daddy's teeth!  our little dentist in training!

ryan jokingly calls noah linus since he is always cuddling his burp cloths.  too cute!

happy thanksgiving!

happy thanksgiving from this cozy little turkey!  we're looking forward to having the day off from nutcracker tech/rehearsals today to celebrate thanksgiving with our families!  we're almost as exhausted as noah from all of this nutcracker work.

have a lovely thanksgiving
