Since Im starting to blog again I want start with updates on my kiddos... Starting with my oldest. :)
Noah is the most awesome 8 year old around I must say.. He is just finishing up the last few months of 2nd grade... He is growing up way to fast and I can't even stand it!
I really couldn't have asked for a more awesome first born son though. He really is a special kid with such a good heart.
He is such a helper when I need him to be, especially with his brothers. He is so smart and does great in school. Math is his strongest subject which he didn't get that from me! He definitely inherited that stereo typical smart Asian trait from his dad! ;). I love watching him read chapter books now.. Its like a whole new world he has been introduced too. He is currently reading the diary of a wimpy kid series and loves it.
He is adjusting to life here in AZ but it took a little while. He was of course sad to leave his friends and family in Ohio but he was also so excited for this new adventure in Arizona.. We moved here in the summer so it was well into the triple digits which was not a big deal for him at first since they had a pool to play in all summer. (that was the very first thing we did when we moved here, was buy and set up a big pool) NECESSITY!!
When school started I think it got tough for him. He didn't make any friends for the longest time. When asked if he had any friends in school his reply was always " I have a few half friends but not any real friends." Finally after Christmas break he went back to school and has since made 2 real friends he says. I love seeing him excited and happy about it, and they are 2 cute well behaved boys.. It's been different for him to make friends that are boys since in the past his few best friends have been girls... He's always been a little little ladies man. ;)
He still asks to move back to Ohio but doesn't ask quite as often anymore. It breaks my heart still when he has those sad moments, but am thankful he is slowly adjusting and learning to like it here..
Noah had a dentist appointment last week and ended up having his first cavity. Luckily we are friends with the dentist (friends from ohio) so I know it won't be as scary for him to get that fixed.. Makes the experience a much more pleasant when your friends with the dentist! :)
Unfortunately this kid is also going to need braces as soon as he is done loosing his baby teeth.. I blame it on him being a big thumb sucker up until he was 6 years old! (Very hard habit to break)

While we were in Ohio for Christmas break Noah made the choice to be baptized. He asked his grandpa, my dad, to baptize him and his uncle, my brother chance, to confirm him... His special day was on Christmas Eve while we had lots of family around. Just like Noah wanted. :)

Facts about Noah:
*favorite color- blue
*favorite food- spaghetti and sushi (not together)
*favorite sport- soccer
*favorite subject- science
*favorite activities- biking, swimming, scouts, Legos, and his newest thing is yoga. Which him and Eli started taking a yoga class a few months ago..

I can't wait to see Noah with his new little sister in a few months! He is so excited and is always kissing my tummy and thinking of names for her. It's pretty darn cute. :)
I know he is going to be such a big helper when the baby comes because he has already offered to change diapers and wake up in he middle of the night! What a good boy I have, and I Just can't even express how much I love this cute kid !!

Noah is such a cute boy! I can't believe it was that long ago when I had him preschool. I love his baptism towel, what a good idea! I'm glad he's liking it better here now. I can't image him not making friends easily, he's so nice!!
