Noah has a new phrase: "Want it!" He often says this when we are in public places and he is looking at the toy that another child is playing with or the food that another child is eating. He reaches dramatically for the desired object and yells pathetically, "WANT IT!!!!" So embarrassing!
He doesn't even like food--so I don't know why is always begging other kids for it. Seriously, Noah has turned into the pickiest eater ever, and it is driving his mother nuts. His four food group are: bananas, pancakes, peanut butter, and cream cheese. He is OBSESSED with peanut butter, which he calls just plain "butter." If he had his way, he would eat nothing else. The other night, I was trying to get him to eat cheese tortellini, which I knew he would like if he just tried a bite, but he flat out refused...until I put a dollop of peanut butter on it. Disgusting, yes, but he gobbled it right up. He is almost equally obsessed with pancakes, which he calls "Cancakes." He can often be heard throughout the day, when it's not even mealtime, whining for "Cancakes! Cancakes!" My dad watched Noah for us the other night, and when he heard Noah sobbing for pancakes, he decided to take him on a date to Village Inn. Cancake Date with Bapa! What could be better? (As a side note, I could really use some advice on the picky eating--so please leave a comment if you have any ideas for me!!)
Noah also LOVES balloons, and he has come to associate the grocery store with these helium-filled delights. As soon as we walk into the store, he starts asking, "Balloon? Balloon? Balloon?" We always make a stop at the florist and find a balloon to tie to our cart for him to play with as we mosey around the store. Sadly, he never gets to take it home. (I think Secret Cupid is going to bring him a balloon for Valentines Day this year and tie it on his crib, so he wakes up in the morning to his dream come true.)
I love my little Noah rascal.
