Happy 60th, Uncle Rick!

Noah and his family wish to wish GREAT Uncle Rick a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY today! Uncle Rick is one of Formerly Almost Mom's most faithful readers, and we could not let today go by without wishing him all the best and everything happy! We look forward to seeing you and celebrating next week!

And a Happy Birthday (one day belated) to another GREAT Uncle Ron, Rick's older brother, who celebrated 61 just yesterday. I didn't know my Grandma, but now that I'm a Mom to 1 little boy, I know that in her short life, she must have been BUSY!

Off to Illinois on Sunday with Noah - we have a plane flight alone together because Anil has to join us a few days later due to his work schedule. This should be interesting - I can say without a doubt, that I can't wait to GET THERE!

At the beach waiting for Mimi

Here are some photos I took this weekend of Noah Arone at the beach...he now LOVES the sand and had so much fun running around on it that I told Anil that we need to take him there every weekend from now on! Last time we went he wasn't loving it but as we've learned by having the little dude around, these things can change in an instant!

Now the only thing he needs is his sweet new friend Mimi to be there with him, and life will be swell! We are beyond excited for Heather and Chris who leave today for Ethiopia. Stay tuned to their blog where I will hopefully be adding updates while they are on their amazing journey!

Surf's up!

Happy Halloween!

Noah went as a 'Roo because his favorite thing to do is jump! These are some photos for the week - he had a Halloween shirt for every day leading up, and actually, not one but two costumes for trick or treating. Costume # 2 will be revealed shortly. He loved being a 'Roo, couldn't get enough of himself! And the ladies at daycare ate it up too - he was pretty cuddly!
