Mother--Tell me your story...

I thought this would be an easy way to keep up with my blog on days that I may not have much to say.  I have a book that my mom gave me for Christmas that is a journal on how to keep Noah all up to date on my life and his and my upbrining.  So I can do page by page as I feel:

Mom's Story:
Your date and place of birth:
I was born on August 24th 1977 in Portsmouth Virginia in the Naval Hospital that my dad and mom were based at. 
My parents' names:
My mom is Arlene Marie Scherer and my dad is Glen Larkin Greene.  Glen was in the Navy and they lived on base.  My mom went into labor with me while watching All My Children.  Her water broke and she didn't know what to do.  So, she changed clothes over and over again.  Apparently not the way to go. 
My brothers and sisters:
Just Starr.  She is my best friend and best Auntie.  She has Gabriella and Jacob.  Both, are pretty much like your brother and sister...but special cousins. 
How did your parents decide on your name?
My mom went to school with a girl named Sheila and she always liked the name.  So, Sheila it was.  I was named Marie for my middle name after my mom.  So...Sheila Marie Greene (later to become Sheila Marie King) was it.  I was raised with the last name of King --Glen would not let Mark adopt me..but did allow for me to take his last name to make life a little easier growing up.  ********************************************************************************
New stuff going around here: 
Looks like we have a crawler.  Noah is more of a GI Joe crawler as Aaron calls it.  I swear though, the kid can be in a new room in about 2.5 seconds.  We went to get pictures taken yesterday.  It was a very exhausting experience with Jacob, Gabriella and Noah..between the 5 hours we were gone..each kid had their own melt down.  Jacob didn't want to walk, NoaWell-youh was hotter then all get out (which makes him very miserable to be around) and Gabriella had a loose tooth and was so scared it was going to fall out or hurt.  Starr and I were ready for a drink about 15 minutes into it.  I will post the pictures later...
They were a surprise to my mom for her interestingly enough..Gabriella just came up with a lie on the fly..she told Mama that we were at the park all day.  So funny!!!

New life....New job....and a crawling baby.

Things are going great around here. I am finally working from home again and love my job on the International Rate Desk with Travelocity. I work on the IMF account. It has been a big learning experience but a fun one.

Noah is 9 months old this week. I can not believe it. He is the biggest and best thing around here. Aaron and I are loving watching him just get into more and more things. This kid will not sit still. He loves eating. His favorite right now is Pears and loves his Mum Mum's still. I think he could eat them all day long!

It has been quite the adjustment going back to work. It isn't terrible..but there are some days I wish it was just like it was before. I hate missing out on any minute of Noah. Such is life....
