The Adventure Starts Here: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

I am very glad the weekend is finally here.  It was a long week with some rough nights.  I also got a stomach bug Wednesday evening that really put me out of commission.  Thankfully, Chris took over with Noah when he got home from work and let me rest.  He was even able to take off Thursday morning to let me sleep some more.  Thankfully I'm starting to feel better now :)  As usual, I'm linking up with DarciAprilChristina and Natasha's blogs for their Five on Friday!


On Monday, I took Noah to a nearby gym to run around and play with some friends.  They have open gym time a couple mornings a week.  The last time we went, Noah was barely walking.  It was fun seeing him enjoy the facilities more this time!  


Noah is definitely his mother's son.  I left Noah playing in our living room while I went to the bathroom.  Not only did I come back to find him sitting like this, but he also figured out how to turn on the TV and put on the Chew (from the Tivo)!  I guess he loves TV just as much as me ;)


For some reason, Noah has this new fascination with wearing his winter hat in the car.  I guess it shows that I don't clean out our car very often, but I'm kind of glad.  One day he wouldn't stop crying in the car.  I was trying EVERYTHING and finally put the hat on his head, and he stopped crying!  Ever since, he's enjoyed wearing it on our trips.  I think it's hilarious when he has short sleeves on and a winter hat :)


As I mentioned last week, I participated in the Jared Box Project.  I filled a box with some little toys to give to a child that is in the hospital.  I made the box for a boy between the age of 2-4.  I wish the box was bigger, because there are so many more things I'd love to include in the box.  I went to Target and got a bunch of toys I think a little boy would love and then decorated the outside of the box with some dinosaur stickers.  I wrote a little note and had Noah "draw a picture" on the front of the card.  I hope I can bring a little happiness to a little boy.


My mom recently got this Beatles shirt for Noah.  It is and always has been her favorite band.  She came over earlier this week to run some errands with us, so I had to put Noah in the shirt and get a picture of the two of them :)


  1. That gym looks like such a fun place for little ones!

  2. What a wonderful thing to donate to the hospital! i should see if ours has a similar program. I would love to get the boys to do something like that.

  3. That Beatles shirt is awesome!

  4. Oh my gosh, Mason is doing the same thing! Just tonight he climbed on the couch, grabbed the remote, and I SWEAR he changed the channel to the Disney channel. I don't know how, but I swear it happened! How are these kids so smart?!
