Noah is as cute as ever. He has so much personality. This past month, he started saying "Wow!" and "Whoa!" We love it. Sometimes he says it at just the perfect moment, and it is hilarious. He has started giving kisses, but he is quite stingy about it. Most of the time, he will straight-up diss me and turn his face when I ask for a kiss, but every once in a while, I get lucky.
He has been enjoying the stuffed dog that Grandma brought him for his birthday...
He's also been enjoying tearing the apartment apart when I leave him unsupervised for five minutes while I write a blog post (hence my lack of blogging this past month)...
But the thing he's been enjoying most of all is hiking. We've been on a hike every weekend this past month, and Noah loves being in the backpack with his dad. (I am grateful that Ryan is buff because I could not lug an extra 25 pounds up the hill--I barely make it as it is.) The Colorado mountains are insanely beautiful, and we have really loved hiking as a family this summer. I hope we keep it up in future years!
