Noa's Birthday Pictures

We decided to have Noa's birthday party a week early just incase baby Micah decided to come early. He's still not here yet, but we're glad we already had her party since we had the perfect company, with the perfect weather, and she was in a perfect mood. What fun we had!
Smoochin' Babers
We decorated everything and when she woke up from her nap she loved looking at all the balloons.
Eating one of her faves - Mac 'n' Cheese
Midway through dinner, she was getting bored, so we gave her a present to open. Thanks Nana and Pops for the tea set!
Scared of the candles

Waaaay into opening her presents! She kept saying, "What is it?" and "How it work?" In her 2 year old kind of way. It was so cute.
Every mommy needs a baby carrier! She was in heaven!
Here's some pictures from today - her actual birthday. You can tell she wasn't feeling very good. Lorann and her boys (Noa's cousins) met us at Chick-fil-a for breakfast. The boys had a wonderful time and were so excited to come to the party, even though it was only our 2 families. Noa, on the other hand, just wanted to sit on Mommy's lap and wanted to go home. She fell asleep in the car on the way home and slept for 5 more hours after that! She woke up still groggy, but thankfully, we still had some presents sent all the way from Michigan to make her smile and keep her occupied for a little bit.
Grandma & Grandpa Roberts sent a whole bunch of Tales stuff! She especially loved the noisy book that plays loud music. Thanks a lot! :)
And Grammy sent her some things (I think she even made some of the things herself) for her kitchen including a whole bunch of baking supplies, apron, and chef hat!
Noa's been wanting a whisk. That's her favorite thing to borrow from Mommy's kitchen.
And unfortunately, she wasn't in any mood to wear her new chef hat, but someone else was!!!
With abandon!
This is what most of our day looked like though. We watched lots of Tales while surrounded by all of our new toys.
We're still awaiting some other things all the way from Michigan, and I'm glad her birthday will continue later this week - especially since she wasn't feeling well today. Thank you everyone for loving our sweet girl. She is a beautiful blessing from our Father and we are so humbled that he chose us to be her parents. We look forward to celebrating her many, many more times!

What a special day for Noa girl! I have to comment on the candles also! Yikes. And she was trapped in her high chair. Couldn't back away from the scary flames. Happy birthday chicks!
