Noah in July

I take requests, you know

Manning the grill

Watching the game- the Phillies win again!
Hey everybody! Well, I've been a busy boy as usual the last few weeks. A couple of trips to the zoo, a couple to the shore, and we celebrated Daddy's birthday.

I'm enjoying my new walking abilities and have been doing it all the time. I'm also starting to talk a bit more than I used to. My favorite words are "happy," "baby," "apple" and "Daddy." 

We were at the shore this past weekend and I got to go to the beach with Cousins Daniel and Joshua!

Mmm, ice cream!

Heading to the ocean- see you later!
Here are some other highlights of my recent doings:

Hey doggie!

Lots of animals to point at at the zoo

Fun with my friend Samantha

 And finally, some videos! First, here's Cousin Joshua and I eating peas:

Here's a video Mommom made of me walking:

My Major League Debut

I'm in color, the world is black and white
 Hey everybody! Well, Sunday was a pretty big day, because Mommy and Daddy took me to my first-ever big-league baseball game! It went really well, and we had a great time.

The Phillies won 14-1, I was in a good mood the whole time, and even though Mommy and Daddy were prepared to leave early if they had to, I went the distance! Here are some pictures from the game:
Taking the subway down to the ballpark
With Mommy near the Mike Schmidt statue
It's so much greener than on TV!

Grabbing a bite at the game
And washing it down with some water

I even got my own seat for an inning

Hey, it's the Phanatic!
Daddy and me right before the final out
 All in all, a very special day, and the first of many days like it I'm sure. 

Also this weekend, we went to the zoo again, this time with Mommy and Daddy's friends Jenn and Jason and their sons, my friends Brody and Asher. Here's what we did there:

Brody and I watch the monkeys

Petting the goat
Hey, it's a sheep!

On the train with Brody and Asher
 And finally, this morning I had to go to the doctor to get some little tiny tubes put into my ears, in order to help solve the problem of all these ear infections I've been having. It went great and I'm feeling fine already. And best of all, on the way there we drove under a bridge in Bucks County that Mommy designed!

That's all for now- thanks for reading everybody!

From the Zoo to the Shore

Borrowing Mommom's reading glasses- and perusing one of Daddy's favorite books

Hey everybody! Happy Fourth of July! You probably heard the big news that I've just started walking; if you missed the video here it is again, now on YouTube:

I'm really liking walking- I don't do it all the time yet, but more and more every day.  Aside from the obvious, there's been a whole lot going on since I last wrote. We just got back from a long holiday weekend at the shore. We got to do a lot of fun stuff- the beach, rides on the Boardwalk in Ocean City, and I even got to drive around the house:

I drive, Daniel rides shotgun
And sometimes I let him drive

At the beach with Mommy

On the blanket with Daniel and Mommom, eating my first-ever beach ice cream!

Manning the grill
Let me get my racket
On the carousel with Mommy
On the Dumbo ride with Mommy...
And the frog ride with Daddy
Watching the game. Daddy swears I said "Chase" as he was taking this picture
Last month, we celebrated both Father's Day and Uncle Jason's 30th birthday. Here are some highlights of those:

All three cousins say Happy Father's Day

Joshua and I at Uncle Jason's birthday party

We got together again for an afternoon the next weekend- what will we play with?

After that, Grammy and Grandpa came for a visit. We had a great time, and one of the highlights was going to the zoo. Not only did we see all the animals, but we got to go up in the air in the Zoo Balloon!

Up high above Philadelphia!

The view from the balloon
I'm not afraid of heights, Daddy!
On the zoo train with Grammy...

and with Mommom

Wow, a peacock!
On the carousel with Grandpa
And finally, here's a video of me playing with Grandpa's phone. Mommy was happy that I brought up a picture of a bridge!

Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for reading everyone!

Love, Noah
