lost track of time

I am so behind on my blogging it isn't even funny!  I was planning on trying to catch up while I was on vacation 2 weeks ago but that did not happen.  There are times I feel like I have so much to say and others not so much.  Maybe I am at the not so much part right now.  I have been dealing with a lot of personal things I am trying to work through to become a better me for my family and son.  I feel like I am back on track a little and want to get back into my blogging.
Not alot has been going on either to be honest.  Just enjoying the last little bit of summer with my little guy.  He seems to be growing SO fast and it feels like I blink and a new child is in front of my eyes.  I know I sound like ALL mothers but it just goes so fast and I want to spend as much time with him as I can and enjoy it.
It is so hard to believe this is the last weekend of summer and fall and winter will be here soon.  In fact I was shopping for Halloween costumes for Noah last night on line, and we have been talking about Christmas presents.  Before I know it I will be planning is 2nd Birthday Party.
I think about life before Noah and I don't remember what it was like.  It's like he has always been apart of our family in some way even before he was.  It has taken over a year but we finally have some sort of schedule figured out in our house.  Not that it will last long because things are forever changing.
I want to wish everyone a happy Labor day and enjoy the last of summer.  I will get pictures this weekend and post them for you all to see.

Have a great Holiday!

18 months

Wow where has the last 18 months gone?  Noah is now a year and a half old, or 544 days old.  Ok I know what is an extreme but I had to do it.
I actually almost forget that Wednesday was the 18 month mark to be honest.  Life has been so busy at our home right now that the days seem to run together.  I must of wrote the day 100 times at work before it hit me it was the 31st, and even then I had to sit and count the months.  Then recount them because I knew there was no possible way that I was right.  This couldn't be happening, time can't be going this fast.
There are times I look at Noah and I still see my little baby and other's I have to take a second look because I think where has this little boy come from.  He is growing so fast, he has out grown his shoes from the beach already and even some of the clothes he had from there.  That was just 6 weeks ago!
Along with the growth has come a major attitude!  He loves to get his own way and will just yell at you in what ever language he seems to be speaking that day.  Temper tantrums seem to come a little easier with him.  I have found if I don't make a big deal over it and ignore him they seem to stop pretty quick.
He is getting his molars in right now so he is chewing and biting everything he can and that you let him.  Including people if he can, we are working on that one.
He loves Mickey Mouse, Jake the Pirate, Sophia the first and Doc McStuffins.  I don't really fuss to much about them because they all teach learning, sharing and helping others.  He LOVES music, any type really but loves to jam out to Joan Jett, he is such an 80's!
He is feeding himself with a fork and spoon if you put the food on it for him.  The spoon is a little messier but he is learning.  
He is learning what sounds go with what items.  He gets his trucks and pushes them going "beep,beep"  As soon as songs he likes comes on the radio or TV he starts jumping around and dancing.
I was talking to my mom and I said I miss his baby stage so much and don't remember him being so little.  But I know in a year I will be saying I miss this stage and don't remember it either!  
It almost doesn't seem fair that God gives us such an amazing gift but let's time fly by so fast!
