Noah Meets His Cousins

Noah had so much fun getting to know his Uncle Dave, Aunt Stephanie and cousins Travis, Connor and Jacob. They came all the way from Phoenix, AZ to meet Noah and spend some time relaxing in North Carolina. The boys had plenty of time to hold Noah and make him laugh. Sometimes Noah would laugh at them even when they weren't doing something silly! Aunt Stephanie especially enjoyed her baby time, and we loved giving her the chance to rock him to sleep and feed him his nightly bottle. We kept the boys really busy. Highlights of their time here were our trip to the US National Whitewater Rafting Center. Matt, Dave, Travis, Connor and Jacob all went whitewater rafting while Stephanie, Laura and Noah watched from the shoreline. We all had a great time and loved the experience. We were also impressed by the facility - we highly recommend it as something unique to do in the Charlotte area. The boys also had a great time tubing on Lake Norman. And they have a new favorite restaurant in the area - Midtown Sundries! We ate there twice, they liked it so much! Noah is a very blessed boy to be loved so much by his cousins, uncle and aunt! We were sad to see them go, but they had to travel to Florida to see Uncle Mark, Aunt Tanya and cousins Morgan and Colton. We're sure they're having a great time in Florida.

Noah went in for his two month appointment and he continues to be growing at a fast pace. He currently weighs 14 lb. 3 oz, so he gained a little over 2 pounds in the last month. Laura thinks that's the heaviest two pounds she's ever felt! We also learned a new way to describe the many fat folds under Noah's neck - just call it "redundant skin." That sounds so much better than fat folds! With the summer humidity and Noah's constant drooling, it's really hard to keep that "redundant skin" clean and dry, but we're doing our best.

We have a lot of pictures from the last week - here they are!
