Out of the mouth of Noah

I have been keeping a list of things that Noah has said over the past 6 months. I finally decided it was time to post them and add to them as time goes or just start a new list. Either way it a good way to keep us with the great or not so great things your kids say.

Can you inside them out? (Can you turn them inside out?)

Can you turn it a little up? This is how he ask every single time. Once I tried to correct him and he was very confused.

If he is frustrated he tells what ever he is frustrated with "you're making me obnoxious!"

For days Noah kept telling people that he was a physic. We do not use that would and we could not figure out where he had heard that. One day we asked him if he was saying side kick. He replied " no, I'm a physic!" We told him that he did not even know what that word meant and that he needed to stop using it. His reply "Yes I do! See, WooHoo! I'm a physic! So now we know that Noah is excited.

Mommy, do I have a baby in my tummy? Mommy do you have a baby in your tummy? Mommy remember that I was born in your heart. Mommy, I sure wish I could live with the mommy who grew me in her tummy and you at the same time.

Mommy, If God makes people how does he get their heads on?

Noah tells everyone that he is going to be a big brother when he grows up. He also wants to be chicken Elmo, a dentist so that he can fix cabinet knees, and a race car so that he can crash.

Returning home from picking Kayla up from school one day Noah said "Mom please don't crash. It might scare the wee out of me!"

Mom, I don't think I'm going to like being dead.

After telling Noah for the umpteen time that he is being demanding he tells me that he will try really hard not to be so amanding.

I'm so great he says about himself! He has no problems with his self esteem.

Mommy, what's that smell? Not the bad smell the good smell?

Noah's favorite restaurant is Chick-A-La

He loves to "text" people on his I pod. Or should we say his happy meal toy. Best part is no one in our family text.

The first thing out of his mouth when he meets a new face "Hi, I'm from Guatemala." It is so stinking cute. It almost sounds like he is in a recovery group.

"Mom when God makes it rain does he push a button?"

"Did Mr. Danny die on the cross like Jesus?"

"When I die how am I going to get to heaven? "- I told him that I did not know how we get from earth to heaven but that God does and he has it all worked out. Then Noah says " I think we fly like superman!" I told him that I thought that sounded like a great way to get there. Then he asked me, " Mom, when you die will you fly to heaven with me? I don't want to not be with you."

"Mom, when you and daddy die who's going to drive me to the orphanage?" I told him that he will not have to live in an orphanage if something happens to us because his family loves him and will help take care of him. "But I just want you to tell me who is going to drive me to the orphanage!" He told me that he wanted to live in an orphanage. I asked him why and he said "Because I never been there before."

One night while playing with his Bat Man toys I overheard him say " Dear Jesus give me the power to beat these bad guys! Love Bat Man. Amen"

One Wednesday evening after church Noah came to me with a very serious face. He said " Mom, I need you to pray for me." I said okay what do you want me to pray about? He overwhelmingly replied "I'm having trouble with the girls. They always want to hug me and it's getting me embarrassed." (He was referring to the teenage girls that his sissy hangs out with.)

"Mom you remember that I am dark and you are light." He has noticed his skin color and that we look different. He also points out to me every time he sees someone that has brown skin. He wants me to know that his skin is like theirs. He is very proud of the color of his skin and he is okay that we look different. He also points out things that make us the same. I hope that he will always cherish that God has made him special.

"Mom, I'm deciding that I'm not going to grow up. I just like being a little kid, okay!"

I'm sure that there are many more Noah moments. I will try to add them when they come to mind. I have been working on this list for awhile. Every time I go to post it he says something else that I want to capture as a memory. He loves to talk and ask questions. He is growing up so fast. I love watching him grow and figure things out. He is all boy and I am sure that the rest of my days with him will never be boring.

I love the list! Keep them coming. What a neat treasure to share with Noah one day! He sounds like such a fun kid. And I love his connection to Guatemala. Maria goes through stages of that but it has been a while.
