We took a trip down to Nebraska City to watch Uncle Ethan march in the Apple Jack parade. While we were down there Noah got to meet "Aunt Winna" and Great-Grandma Fricke's new baby puppy. He wasn't quite sure what it was those. It looked a lot different than all the other 'puppies' Noah gets to play with on a daily basis. She was a lot smaller and didn't move near as much.

It's hard to believe that it is actually summer with some of the temperatures we've been having. We've really been enjoying it though. It's amazing how much Noah LOVES to be outside.
He continues to grow and is turning into such a little man. Mom and dad don't know where the time has gone.
Tomorrow our little guy will be 5 months old.Noah has started cereal, and is doing a pretty good job of 'eating' it. Until he decides that its more fun to 'razz' and then spit food all over.We hope everyone is having a good summer, soon the leaves with change color and begin to fall.

Great Uncle Darwin and Noah.

Dustin has been working all weekend on putting hard wood flooring down in the living room, Plus it was such a hot day we decided to take the afternoon off and go over to cousin Amanda and Rodney's and relax in the pool. Noah enjoyed the water soooo much. It was like one big bath tub to him. He got to sit in his floaty, kick his legs, and splash with his arms. He did eventually get tired and fell asleep on Rodney while they were relaxing in the lounge chair.
While we were up at Grandma and Grandpa Buss's Alex decided it was warm enough to take his shirt off. Noah didn't want him to be the only one, so he took his shirt off too. Noah seems to really enjoy being naked. If he is cranky just start undressing him and he laughs and smiles. Alex got to sit in the chair and hold Noah too. But he got too wiggly and so Amanda held Noah for a while.

On Sunday night we all went up to Grandma and Grandpa Scotts. Aunt Susan, Uncle Darwin, and Cody, Dillon, and Evan came over to spend time at the fire pit. We got to grill hot dogs, brats, and roast marshmallows. All the excitement tuckered Noah out. He really likes to be outside and can easily sleep through the noise.
On Monday, Memorial Day, Noah was 2 months old. We were back out at Lubben's that afternoon to spend some time with the Fricke Family. Great Grandma Fricke is 70 today!!
Noah is growing into such a good boy. It's hard to believe, the time has gone so fast. About a week ago Noah started to sleep through the night, 8 hours at a shot. The first few nights mom and dad had to get up every few hours to check on him though.
He is growing well. Noah is up to about 14 lbs and 23 inches long. He got his 2 month shots, which were probably worse for mom than for Noah. Two weeks ago Jessi went back to work 3 days a week and Noah started at daycare. It was harder than we all thought it would be. This week Jessi started full time. Mom, dad, and Noah seem to have gotten a system figured out, so we'll see how long that last.

After church the family went out for lunch together, though it took quite a bit to actually get in somewhere (it's a long story). The family was able to enjoy a nice meal at Texas Roadhouse!
Just another update. Noah is now over 12 lbs. Though mom and dad thought that he was maybe gaining too much, according to the Nurse he is following the height/weight growth chart nicely. She said he is supposed to keep gaining like he is for a while, cause we don't want him to level off too early.

Noah went with mommy and grandma Rhonda to Jessi's doctor appointment last Tuesday. Everything is going good. Jessi can start to increase some of her activities but still can't vacuum and has to take it easy on the laundry for at least 3 more weeks. But that's okay since Dustin has been doing a great job helping out in that department.
He has started to have a lot more awake times during the day and loves to sit up and look around
Everytime Dad holds Noah it usually ends up like this!!

At our last appointment Noah's weight was up to 9 lbs 14 oz- so he is not starving by any means. He certainly knows how to let everyone nearby know when he is hungry. He doesn't really enjoy getting baths, or getting naked for that matter. Mom and dad have only had one minor "Geyser" incident (that's what dad calls it).
A huge Thank You to everyone who visited us in the hospital and at home, for all the calls, letter, cards, and well wishes we have received. It is great that Noah has come into a world surround by people who love him and care for him as much as his mommy and daddy do. Thanks Again!!

At about 7 pm Tuesday night Jessi began the medicine to induce labor. Wednesday morning at 7 am Dr Placek came in to break her water and then the contractions started (picture 1).

The doctor said we are ready to go at anytime. So if you are a praying person, you can help us pray for sometime this weekend or early next week. Mom and Dad are READY!!!
Dad keeps talking to the little one, telling him its time to come out, but he doesn't seem to listen to his father. Wonder where he gets that!! :)
We've been going on walks about everyday and moms been doing some exercise to try and help move things along. Only time will tell.
Next appointment is on Tuesday. Hopefully we will know more by then, or baby will already be here!! Til then, take care everyone and we'll keep you all updated on the latest.

Thursday, March 12th we had our last appointment. The ultrasound picture shows the baby's head. You can see the face better from farther away, but it shows two eyes, the nose, and the mouth open in a yawn, plus the chubby cheeks. The baby did not want to cooperate and lay still for a good picture, so this is the only one we got.
We were able to see all the organs and that they were all functioning properly. The little stomach was even moving in and out in 'practice breaths.' So we know that the little one knows he is to breathe when he comes out.
We are beginning to dialate and efface, so we are progressing well. Our next appointment is Thursday, March 19th.

Here are some pictures from the Baby Shower last week. I thought it was a GREAT turn out. We can't thank everyone enough for all the gifts we received. We are still in the process of getting everything organized and put away.
Going through all the gifts again, we are getting even more excited for the new one to get here. Then we can actually use all the stuff.
The hospital bag is packed and the car seat is in the car, not the truck. Dad has to clean out and organize his tools before that will happen.We go to the doctor again this Thursday for another ultrasound to see the size and position of the baby. So we will try to give you another blog Thursday or Friday to see if the little one is going to be as big as everyone claims it will.
