Weight/Length: 21 pounds and 28 ½ inches J - my growing boy!
Eating: Noah has chunked up this past month. We have had multiple people comment on it including our nanny who didn’t see him for a week and was shocked to see his weight gain and how much hair he had grown. Noah drinks four to five bottles a day. I’m afraid we might have a little bit of a stubborn boy- he has to hold it by himself. He will quickly take it out of your hands if you try to hold the bottle for him.
The little nugget still loves solids. He is over the pureed food but completely bananas about eating finger food. Noah Walker goes to town when I put bite size pieces on his highchair tray. He loves black beans, rice, guacamole, PB&J pieces, pancakes, eggs, macaroni and cheese, noodles, and more. I cut up pieces of fruit and veggies for him as well. I make sure they are soft. He loves it. There isn’t much he will refuse hence the thunderous thighs and Santa belly.
Bedtime/ Awake: He sleeps 12 hours a night. His bed time is anywhere between 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., and he usually wakes up around 7:30/8 a.m. He stands up in his crib and just plays until you come get him. I am usually greeted by the cutest/sweetest smile when I walk in the room.
As for naps, Noah takes two a day. His first one is around 10 and it lasts until about 11:30/12. His next nap is about 2:30/3:30 and last until 4:30. It can differ between days, but he consistently takes two naps which is nice for mommy and daddy. It allows us to get household duties and work done around the house.
Clothes: Homeboy is 9 month, 9-12 month, and 12 month clothes. At night, I’ve been putting him in pajama sweat pants and a t-shirt. He looks so grown up- it is crazy!
Favorites: Noah is 100% boy. He is constantly crawling over and under everything and monkeying around with daddy. He loves attention and eats up situations where all eyes are on him. Towards the end of his “wake” time, he gets needy and his favorite thing is to be held while I piddle around the house. He is my “housework assistant.” A new hobby this past month is to open and shut doors, cabinets, and drawers. He loves to tip baskets, trashcans, or any container and find out what’s inside. (I swear it’s like having a little puppy- nothing is off limits). He has attachment to items which is new. His favorite items this month are his pacifier *nothing new there*, a blue blanket, and a red teddy bear. He will squeeze both his blanket and bear really tightly and squeal. It might be the cutest thing ever.
Dislikes: Noah does not like to wear bibs. He yanks them off. He has to have his diaper changed while holding a toy. He does not like to have cloths put on him.. Noah doesn’t like to be told No. He is in love with our internet router behind the couch. He will pull it out with the most guilty look on his face and gets upset when we tell him no. He has a sensitive spirit.
Tricks: Noah is standing. He pulls away from the couch and stands for 10 to 20 seconds. No signs of steps, but I am in no rush for that. Noah drags toys, shoes, plastic containers all over the house. He likes to push items everywhere. He can do a summersault with assistance thanks to “Little Gym.” He knows how to head butt and does it to show affection. (I found out that Matt does this to him, so now Noah has picked up this habit as well). Noah can wave bye bye and clap his hands. He loves to bang his hands on all items. His favorite pastime is to take his block and bang it on the table. Matt calls Noah “peg leg.” The nugget carries around this block that makes noise and you can hear him coming from a mile away. It sounds like a peg leg walking down a hallway. It’s pretty hilarious. J It’s funny how little boys like blocks, trucks, and to get dirty.
Sidenote: I’m so glad God blessed us with an amazing little boy. I seriously couldn’t imagine life without him. He is a daily reminder of how great God’s sacrifice was when God sent His only Son to die for us. I am selfish. There is no way I’d send my 10 month old cutie to die for the crazies.
