Pride & Prejudice

Noah's Book Club: October 2012

Title: Little Miss Austen Pride and Prejudice  -a counting primer-
My mom picked this one.

Author: Jennifer Adams

Why Noah Picked It: I didn't pick it. My Mom did. I got a few wonderful books for my 1st birthday this month but this one was my Mom's favorite. In a genius marketing move Miss Adams has come out with this simple counting book with a theme that moms like mine go crazy for. While this book is really just a 1-10 number book almost like any makes my mom really happy and I like it too. Examples of pages are: 2 rich gentlemen, 5 sisters, 8 musicians and so on....all nods to Miss Austen's classic tale. This ones for you Mama! (There are other titles in the series if you are more of a Jane Eyre or Romeo and Juliet type.)

11 Month Vocabulary List

Noah's 11 month mark came and went without a post from me. Mostly this is due to the fact that Noah woke up that Friday with a fever and I spent most of the day trying to keep him comfortable and happy. We ended up in the emergency room in the evening because the fever went to 103.6 and our doctor's office told us to take him over. It was a long and sort of pointless trip. He ran fevers for the next two days and when the fever left it was replaced by a cough and RUNNY nose. Oh, and a cold for this Momma as well. I've been mightily under the weather since then and we took a 3 day trip without Noah to clean out my husband's family beach house. With all that said...I am a week and 4 days late but I need to mark our little man...quickly on his way to 1.

Words we think Noah knows:
and I am sure there are many more....

The summary:
He is always up and cruising around the house. Still loves looking through his books. Sleeping well at night although we have a little work to do after some vacations and a cold/teething session. Naps are improving. Loves mirrors, walks, the jumper. He is now facing forward in the car. Eating well. With our knowledge of his understanding getting clearer we have started some discipline when he disobeys. He waves and gives kisses on occasion. He loves to point and "talk." 

Less than 3 weeks until he is 1...WOW!
