Noah Atlee Stillwell is 8 Months Old!

(Actually Noah was 8 months on Friday - but snow, photo sessions, dinner dates, and Scentsy parties all came up and the 8 month blog got delayed. Hopefully, Noah will forgive me!)

January 21, 2011 ~ 8 months old!
Each month I take a picture of Noah in the rocker recliner in his bedroom with the same blanket behind him. This helps me to see how much he has grown each month!

What Noah was up to this month:

* Noah can sit unassisted for long periods of time, but he can also just fall over at any given moment. As my mom best put it - "He doesn't understand the outcome of his actions", his actions being slinging his head around and down he goes!

* Noah is sleeping 12 hours straight! Usually from 8:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m. He gets up for a 20 minute snack around 6:00 a.m. which is when I get up, so it works out pretty perfect. I'm so glad he is such a good sleeper! I fully planned on "Babywising" him to get him to sleep, and he was doing exactly as the book said he should, so he didn't put up a fight. He usually gets sleepy eating his cereal bottle and nods off, but if he doesn't he is good to just fuss for about 10 minutes and fall right to sleep.

24 pounds, 28.5 inches tall

* Noah is eating around 27 ounces of breastmilk a day - 6:00 a.m., 10:00a.m., 3:00 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. He eats yogurt for breakfast and a 4 oz. jar of baby food for lunch. He then eats 9 ozs of food and a 9 oz cereal bottle for dinner! The only food he doesn't like is macaroni and cheese!

* Noah is not crawling yet, but he can pretty much roll to anything he wants! He literally rolls from one end of the living room to the other!

He is developing quite the personality!

* Noah isn't talking yet either - he says alot, but none of it is real words.

*Noah doesn't like it when me or Daddy leave the room now. He will immediately start crying - it is pretty pathetic/funny! He is fine when we leave him at the babysitters house though - thankfully!

* Noah loves to scream (playfully) at the top of his lungs! He was even having a scream conversation with another baby at a resaurant the other day! He will have screaming contests with me or Nathan - I love it!

* Noah has his 2 bottom middle teeth and top 2 middle teeth! More to come soon, I'm sure! He handles teething pretty well - a little tylenol and a teething ring and he is good to go!

I cannot believe how fast this is all going by!
