Random Happenings in the Engelsma Home

Noah is not going to be walking as fast as Andrew was. Andrew started walking when he was about 11 and a half months old and Noah is already 10 months old and is finally a stable sitter. He can't crawl yet, but somehow he manages to get where he wants to go!

Noah loves taking baths in the kitchen sink. I put towels down on the floor to catch all the splashes! Notice the mohawk (or tomahawk as Great-Grandpa VDT says). His hair is growing the thickest right down the middle of his head.

About a month or so ago, Andrew would not take his afternoon nap. He was downstairs with Chris while I made supper that evening, and when I called my boys up to eat, only Chris came. When I went to investigate, this is what I found. Guess he still needs those naps!

Jan. 27 was my 25th birthday. While I was out, Chris decorated the house and the kids, including our niece, Adrienne! It was a fun surprise.

Chris decided that with this pregnancy we should watch my belly grow more closely so we are documenting the progress on film. Here I am at about 8 weeks. Oh, Andrew decided to get in on the picture too!

I've been sick since Fri evening and now Andrew is coming down with it too. The poor boy actually climbed in my bed this morning to take a nap without any prompting from mommy! Thankfully, Noah's still a happy boy.


  1. I am so glad that you are blogging again. It is wonderful for those of us who live at a distance. How far along is Andrew? And when in September are you due? Such fun. I am sure that your folks are delighted. I sure love my three!!!

  2. By the way in the picture where Andrew is sleeping, you can tell that he and Luke are cousins. I can see Luke in Andrew. How fun!!!


Please leave a note! I love to hear from my readers.
