Always the class clown! at 4 years old Noah thinks he's the funny guy :) He's still so quiet around people he doesn't know well, barely saying a word. I'll have to ask his preschool teacher if he talks to her, because from what I see he's very quiet around her. He certainly isn't quiet at home and has been talking and interacting with the daycare kids more. I see my little boy growing up so quickly!
Since Christmas Noah has been sick often. At first I thought he was just unlucky, catching more than one stomache flu in a month. Then, he's been sick to his stomache once every week or two since. He just recently had his 4 year wellness check-up so I brought up the vomiting to the Doctor. Apparently, since his two year check-up he's been dropping from his growth curve on the growth chart. He used to be up around the 20th percentile and now he's closer to the 5th. Based on that, and the frequent vomiting, Noah was sent today for blood work. He did great and didn't flinch or cry! I'm so proud of my boy :) hopefully the results from the blood work are fine, I'll call in a few days to find out. The Doctor is suspecting that the vomiting is just a virus taking it's time to work out of his system, but they are just making sure.
We celebrated my boy's birthday this past weekend with family and his friend Hannah. Noah had requested a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday awhile ago, but then the week before tried to change his mind and have a batman birthday party instead. Luckily, he was talked back into his original plan, and I was relieved because I'd already bought some crocheted ninja turtle stuffies :)
We planned on meeting family and friends at the movie theatre. Noah loves watching movies so we thought this would be a great way to spend his birthday :) the theatre has family movies at a discounted rate and that week 'Elmo in Grouchland' was playing. It was a fun morning and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.
After the movie we went back to our place for pizza lunch, cake and presents.
Enjoying their pizza!
Present time! we played this awesome game a few times over family day weekend. Thanks for the present Hannah & Catherine :) funny enough, I'd bought the same gift for Hannah's upcoming birthday.
Our gift for Noah- a new hockey net!
Noah sure enjoyed his new scooter from Grandma and Grandpa!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cake! I had to put out a facebook message searching for these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys from McDonalds and drive all over the city picking them up from people. They were perfect for his cake though, so I'm glad I did. Plus, it made for a super easy cake to make :)
Chocolate cake - Noah's favourite!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle stuffies for the loot bag! made by Custom Beanies by Karly.
On Noah's actual birthday we took him out for dinner. Of course he chose his favourite restaurant - Boston Pizza!
