Day of Days

Labor Day 2006.

A big day. A huge day.

A momentous day.

The tire moved from the foyer to the bottom of the stairs, as Jason swears he will stick it "upstairs in the storage closet somewhere," sometime relatively soon.

And oh! Yes.

Noah took his first steps today.

That too.

Congratulations Noah! If this were our house, Noah would be going to his first dance before that tire left the living room.

mothergoosemouse

One small step for Noah, one neverending headache for Amy and Jason.

Congrats!

Tartine

Go, Noah! Maybe you can just get Noah to take the tire upstairs now that he can walk.

Ninotchka

Yay Noah! Isn't it just so exciting? :)

Aly

The tyre must have magical walking powers! Don't move it! Next he'll be running! *gulp* =D

*isaproudinterlurker*

Fweeee!

Kate

Go Noah go!

Sarah

Is that a picture of Max or is that Actual Max on the wall there?

Walk on, Noah!

mappyb

Congratulations! What a cute photo!!!

Jem

Wow, congratulations Noah! And Jason too, I guess

Kyla

Way to go, Noah!

AnnieLSU

Congratulations Noah! Amy, thank you for letting us be a part of your life.

Vaguely Urban

Noah eyes the gate, thinking, "Walking's nice and all, but what really excites me is the idea of scaling those stairs *upright*."

HolyMama!

yea, Noah!!!!

Teri M.

Congratulations and my deepest sympathies, on both accounts. ;)

Sarah Louise

OMFG!

Y from the internet

That just may be my new favorite picture.

Chase

Congrats! And congrats!!!

Sarah

Congratulations Noah!
*hands a tissue to Amy*

Zoot

Congrats (i think) to Noah. MrZ swears Nikki took two steps toward him this weekend but they don't count because A) I didnt see them and B) He's a giant liar.

michelle/weaker vessel

Holy mobility, Batman! Noah looks like he's challenging the tire to a duel!

Broad

He looks like a little body builder in that pic, like he's ready to hoist that tire plum over the railing.

Nancy

Looks like the tire motivated him to walk. ;-)

Congrats, momma!

dawn

Don't move that tire upstairs just yet -- Noah will probably follow it!

Melody

Congrats on the first steps..now..life is officially over..nothing is safe!

lindsay

have fun with the new round of childproofing! wait until he can reach up onto the dining room table...

Wacky Mommy

Go, Noah, go! And it's not even your birthday yet!

Crystal

My tivo quivers in fear...

MMM

Well, congratulations....on both :)

Susan

Uh-Oh! Someone said the B-word! Soon there will be running, and climbing, and getting into all sorts of things....Go Noah!

Starbuck

Baby's first steps? Those are so awesome. It's the 100th step that should make you *blubberweepsob* because by then he will be into everything not bolted to the floor, under lock and key, and also just plain messy.

Also, Tire? Probably evil and the reason for Noah's steps.

shy me

must research tire/child's first steps causation correlation.

love and congrats on both ; )

Patchie

Yay Noah! Now he can reach all KINDS of things that were previously out of reach! And maybe he can roll the tire upstairs for y'all.

de

Yay for Noah! But Oh. MY. GOD. DUDE. The wobbling, and bumping and THUMPING... I'm getting nauseous thinking about it!
Lots of luck!

earlyduckie

How can he possibly be big enough to be walking? Just yesterday you shared that you were pregnant... And this means that Will is just a few months behind... UGH!!!

Jessie

Too exciting, all around! And of course, Noah being the overachiever that he is had to go and overshadow it being a holiday. I would expect anything less. Congrats and good luck!

Emily

Congrats! Now all he needs is a stick, a page-boy cap and some nickers and he'll be OWNING that tire.
...did that visual work for anyone?

jomama

Congrats to Noah!

123Valerie

Right on! Since Noah's going to need some new walking shoes, that means you get to buy some, too.

Maxine Dangerous

::Noah staring at tire:: This foyer's not big enough for the both of us, Michelin.

Congrats! :)

Sarcomical

it looks like he's challenging The Tire to a duel.

NothingButBonfires

Do I see Broken Tivo on the stairs? Is Noah walking towards it in the hope of repairing it and winning back your full and unconditional love?

Elizabeth

Aww, congratulations to Noah!

sweetney

congratulations on the tire move!

kidding, kidding. give noah a cheek-pinch and a hearty "YOU ROCK!" for me, ok?

shokufeh

Wow! Congrations! Condolences on leaving the innocence behind?
Wait, isn't this a spare tire? As in, one the car might need to have more close at hand than upstairs in the closet?

Audra

Congrats on the first step. Today was the day for milestones. My little guy pulled himself up for the first time.

Missie

Labor Day 2006 gave you the Walking Noah!

Coming Early September 2006:
Getting Into Everything Noah

Just in time for Christmas 2006:
Fleeing Noah

Get yours today!

Emily

CONGRATS! Get ready to childproof on a whole new level!

beth

awww way to go to your lil man!! yay!!! hugs.

Heather B.

Who is that child standing all upright and shit and walking???

Phc

Go, Noah!

But really, would you one day explain why there is a cat painted on your wall?

Krisco

It's all over for you now. Next week toddling and the next week running, and then you'll NEVER know where he is! (Hopefully still in the house.)


Whimsy

lol even from the back Noah looks a wee bit surprised at his new, higher perspective. Red letter day indeed.

erika

Aw! Look at him just standing there! Go Noah!

Fraulein N

Congrats! He is totally planning his next move.

Tara

Those first steps are so cool. Wait until he's chasing you around the house, giggling all the way. :-)

Katie Kat

WEEEEE! Yay Noah! I'm waiting for those first precious steps at my house, but not really TOO excited! Now, if I could just get her to stop YELLING... :)

Bozoette Mary

Not only will Noah follow the tire up the steps, he will then wedge himself inside it and roll back down. Trust me on this one.

wordnerd

Yay! And even before he turned you-know-what on you-know-when!

Arwen

He's walking! Congratulations to Noah. :)

Linda

Oh my! I predict pictures are going to get even more interesting from this point forward.

marian

Look at that little guy. He's got great posture and shoulders out to here. Adorable.

CrankMama

Congratulations to the new walker and the daddy with big plans for the tire.

cate

Yay, Noah!! Sorry, Amalah and Jason! They get so big so fast. And so much harder to catch...

Kirsten

Congrats to you both! next he will be climbing everything possible, you have to be quick on your toes now he's mobile!
Good job Noah!

Silly Hily

Dude!

Shiz

Awesome!

Also about the walking.

Cheers!

Lilly

Yikes! You're the proud mom of a TODDLER now! Congrats!!

the reluctant ADDult

Oh my gosh! That is such a huge step! I cannot wait to see what happens next.


Oh, yeah, and cool Noah is walking now, too.

(You are in serious trouble, you know.)

Brian

It looks like Noah walked right out of his clothes! ;-)

starrynite

Go Noah! So glad to be a witness to such an historic event!

You must be so proud xx

anon

you and jason should stop everything and just hump like bunny rabbits. you sound WAY more emotionally stable than when you were trying to get pregnant the first time; how could the disappointment, if it doesn't happen, even be comparable since you have NOAH now? but being an only child is lonely.

Patchie

Whoa, anon, way to squash the joy and happiness of the event.

There should be a law--or at least an Internet ordinance--that nobody shall comment on anybody's procreation choices in such a condescending and critical manner.

And I can testify that the "disappointment" of not conceiving the second, even if you already have a child, can be comparable--because there are people like YOU out there snarking on about how "being an only child is lonely."

Carrie

ROCK ON Noah!!

DebbieS

Go Noah...it's (almost) your birthday...

Jason had better get that tire put away before Noah is old and strong enough to roll it down the street, LOL. By the look of his posture and shoulders that may be sooner rather than later!

Persephone wants me to ask if Noah likes slightly older women?

Stepherz

Go On With You Bad Self, Noah! Now he can do some chores around the house. Taking Ceiba out, changing the oil-- you know, the Big Boy stuff.

Riana Lance - Healthifica.com

WTG, Noah!

Congrats on the 1st steps...

Tony

That's funny!
Congrats on the walking

Jenny

Go Noah!

CC

Thats awesome! Watch out world here comes Noah!

Her Bad Mother

High Five! On both counts!

andy

Dude, what's with that super-sweet cat on the wall? it's like you're living "Lady and the Tramp." Colour me jealous.
