Memorial Weekend

Oh what a weekend. Mommy, Daddy, and Noah were on the go. Saturday afternoon we went out to Lubben's pond with the other two 'kids' (dogs) Betsy and Gizmo. While mom and dad hung out with Adam and Carrie, the dogs had a great time with Adam and Carrie's two dogs Lexi and Junior. Needless to stay everyone got a bath when we got home that night.
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.

This Sunday, May 3rd Noah Steven Fricke was Baptism at the American Lutheran Church in Adams.
Thanks to all the family who came to Church to be a part of Noah's special day. Thanks to Grandpa Steve and Grandma Rhonda for Noah's Baptism outfit, he looked cute in his sailor suit!And an extra huge thank you to Uncle Casey and Aunt Emily for being Noah's Sponsors.
It means a lot to have so many family members who love Noah as much as his mommy and daddy do!

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.

One Month Old

On Saturday, March 25th our little guy turn 1 month old!!! It's hard to believe, but its true. Noah had a busy day. That morning he went to Uncle Ethan's track meet in Tecumseh. But it was a little chilly so we didn't stay too long. That afternoon Noah got to hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Scott, and aunts Lucy and Katy. Then that night we went to Burr to help celebrate Uncle Casey's Birthday!
We have discovered that the more noise the better when Noah is trying to sleep. He's slept through a restaurant full of noisy teenagers, fell asleep with 10-12 screaming preschoolers when we visited Grandma Scott at work, and usually sleeps through church because of all the music!!
A Big Thanks to Dave and Emily for suggesting playing a radio at night. We've doing that for a week now and Noah is sleeping a lot better at night.
