Even though Noah turned 4 back in early June I still was determined to get some birthday pictures of him. I still kick myself for not getting some of the girls this year. Their birthdays were right before the move.
While out visiting my parents I got the idea of doing a mini photo shoot at the local farm there in town. So I found him an outfit, bought him the number 4, and picked up some balloons.
Time to try to get some decent shoots. I should have known better because every time I try to get some photos of my kids it never turns out quite right. This time was no different. Here is what happened.
#1. On the drive over one of the balloons popped leaving me with only 3 balloons instead of 4, which what I wanted. Oh well, moving on.
#2. Then no more than 2 minutes on the farm premises Maddie gets stung by a bee !! Oh geez. Almost had to give up and just go home !
#3. Noah decides that he does not want to hold his balloons and does not want his picture taken ! Time for some bribery. It only half helped.
#4. While trying to carry Maddie around the farm ( because her ankle hurt so bad that she could hardly walk on it from the bee sting) I tried to get some photos of Noah. All he wanted to do was feed the ducks.
Here are a few shots from that day.
Here are a few fun facts about Noah as he turns 4.
Fruit snacks, can eat them all day long. I have to hide them now.
Dr. Pepper - hardly gets any, I think it's because his daddy drinks it.
His Fluffy - his favorite stuffed husky dog
His pajamas, would wear them all day long
Treats - wants them and expects them when we go to the store. Doesn't mean he gets them.
Tubs - would take 2 or 3 a day if I let him
To swing, and for me to push him
Nuggets and fries - McDonald's ones though. Not a fan of anything else.
Loves to eat out. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
To play on the ipod touch and the ipad. Anything electronic. I am convinced he is going to geeky like his dad. Or should I say "Techy" if that is such a word.
Loves to ride his bike and can even ride without training wheels.
Loves to play with his daddy and asks to play on the "daddy playground."

"Nuggets and fries". His choice of lunch or dinner. From McDonald's.
I can't believe that he is already 4 years old. Where did the time go ? This little guy is so sweet. He gives the best hugs and kisses. Even says thank you for things that I do for him, melts my heart. He is so full of energy, mischief, and all things boy. Such a great gift to have a little boy to love. I love you Noah, more than the last number.
