Brumbaugh's Fruit Farm...and the pumpkin patch

Every year we try to make it out to Brumbaugh's Fruit Farm to look around if nothing else. We stopped by one day to pick up some apples and apple fritters before going to grandma C.'s house...and you wanted your yearly pic taken in the picture posing pumpkin patch we stopped and I snapped a few. So, my little man, here you are 2012....compared to prior  years you can see you are growing up so fast!

I love ya!

Dear Noah..artwork....

 getting you to do any artwork these days is like pulling teeth. You fight me the whole way....never want to do it...I think because you do not feel like you CAN do anything "good enough" or like everyone else your age might do things. I try to tell you to just LET GO and do ANYTHING....there are no limits in artwork and being creative. You finally AGREED to come out to the table and paint...
 We had been talking about ABSTRACT art in art class so you decided to just let loose and do something more abstract....
this is your creation. I love the colors and movement in the painting and you seem pretty proud of yourself which I am happy about! Hopefully this will build some confidence in you!

I love you!


Dear Noah....follow-up cardiology visit....

 My little man is growing up.....getting tall and lanky....

He still loves to sit in this position for most everything. He reads like this...will eat at the table like a lot of things like this. (this is the same position he used to use on the toilet which took years to break him

Dear left turn arrow...

We had a good weekend. On Sunday we drove to your aunt Angela's house to celebrate her husband's birthday. On the way we saw one of these...a left turn arrow that had turned RED. Normally we only see a solid red circle....not the left turn arrow that is red. got very excited and looked over at me and said, "I think I am kind of dreamy right now, cause it has been a long time since I have seen one of those!"

I chuckled and asked you to repeat what you said...because I was not sure I heard you correctly. said "dreamy." You were swooning.

I said that was cute...and you said, "Well it is an emotion!"

You would be correct and it sums up PERFECTLY exactly how you were feeling.

Needless to say, that was probably one of the highlights of your day...possibly even

Love you as always,
