noah does not like to sit down for long at all. he's an "on the go" type of a guy and can't be bothered by stopping to sit unless it involves sitting in his highchair to eat.
my mom brought up to our house this big orange pillow that my aunt made when i was little. noah has been loving walking over to it and sitting down (but just for a second). it has been cute!

today is national pumpkin day! although we didn't get a real pumpkin yet to decorate our house (except for that tiny white one from the cider mill) we do have some fake decorative pumpkins that we've been decorating the house with and noah is particularly drawn to the one with the kitty on the front of it!

before noah was born, ryan built this beautiful wooden stand to hold noah's bassinet. he built it in a way so that when we were done using the bassinet it would transition into a play table for noah.
noah has been loving playing at this table that ryan built. i caught him the other morning so happy to be playing at the table which is the perfect height for him!

on saturday, we had a bruce springsteen tribute at the theatre. other than "born in the usa" i didn't think i knew many springsteen songs, it turns out i knew a few. the audience enjoyed it and it's one more show checked off this fall season's list!
you can check out a few more photos from the show on the theatre's facebook page here.

this has always been one of my favorite pictures of my mom and dad (taken back in 1979, one year before they were married).

we had a busy weekend at the theatre with back-to-back shows and noah was there to help with it all! on saturday, he grabbed a microphone and the stage plot to help ryan set up for the band. he even knew which type of mic cable and stand we needed too! he's such a great little stage hand!

noah is a ball of energy 24 hours a day. truly, he is nonstop. he loves to dance and now he is getting into gymnastic tricks. yes, he is only 13 months old, but he doesn't realize that.
the other day he took the pillow off the couch and repeatedly kept sitting on it and trying to roll backwards as if to do a backwards summersault. i didn't get video or pictures of the whole ordeal because i was too busy trying to keep his head from hitting the floor but i did snap one blurry photo of the action. what a nut!

the fall main-stage production this year was "a midsummer night's dream" at the university where ryan and i work. this show was quite the project. as usual, i designed costumes and ryan designed the lights, built the set, and oversaw everything tech related.
it was a successful run this past weekend and we are beyond exhausted and wiped out from it! now onto the next one!

on saturday we had a cars tribute band perform at the theatre. i really didn't think i knew any cars' songs prior to the show but it turned out i recognized a few. it was a hectic night and i have been fighting a head cold all week so it was an exhausting show. now onto this weekend with more shows!

today this little blog of mine turns 12 years old. i'm not sure how it has been 12 years since i started this adventure back in 2011 on a whim. i'm grateful for my little corner of the internet as a virtual scrapbook to chronicle the highlights of our lives.
happy birthday, little blog!
