Noah is 10 Months Old!

I know I say this all the time, but I cannot believe I have a 10 month old! It is just crazy! Now I see why people have a bunch of babies because they grow so fast! Let see what Noah is up to now:

* Noah weighs 26.5 pounds and is 31.5 inches tall! He was in the 95% on his height at his 9 month appointment - he is a tall boy!

* Noah has 7 teeth - 4 on the bottom and 3 on top, and one more about to come thorough on the top. I'm guessing it won't be too long until that top one comes through!

* Noah wears 18-24 month clothes and is still squeezing in his size 5 shoes for now. I got him some size 7's the other day, so we are ready for the day I can't get that chubby foot in his shoe anymore!

* Noah is wearing size 4 diapers during the day and size 5 night diapers. I have found a size bigger night diaper has helped prevent him from leaking since he sleeps so long.

* Noah has a good night routine: 7:30 eats dinner (12.5 ozs of baby food - 1 meat, 1 vegetable, 1 fruit and oatmeal mixture), 8:00 bathtime, 8:30 pajamas and a 9 oz cereal breastmilk bottle. He usually sucks that down in 10 minutes and I let him stay on the couch with me and Nathan until 9:00 unless he falls asleep eating or is really sleepy. Then I just put him in his bed and he goes to sleep on his own. No crying or anything  - the occasional talking though. We hear a couple of uh-ohs occasionally :)

* Noah is sleeping from 8:30 or 9:00 at night until around 6:00 the next morning! He then nurses and goes back to sleep until 8:00! Occasionally he will wake up at 5:00 to nurse, usually when he is teething. He has also skipped that early morning meal altogether and slept straight through until 7:30-8:00. He is a very good sleeper. I worked hard to get him to sleep good and be a self soother. I think it worked off. I do know that some babies just do not sleep throughout the night at all for years, I am so glad I was blessed in this department. I think God knew better! :)

* Noah now says "Uh-oh" and uses it properly. He says "Bye-bye" and waves, but not all the time. He can say momma and daddy, but only on occasion. He also says "Un-uh" (the no sound) alot, but I don't think he knows he is saying it. He babbles alot and lately it has been "Ow, ow, ow" so it sounds like he is getting hurt over and over again, it is really cute!

* Noah is crawling like crazy! I have had to hide and move alot of stuff in the living room! He is really fast! He likes to pull the cord on my breast pump while I'm pumping to make it go off all the time - the stinker! We had to put the baby gates up to keep him in the living room, especially when I am home alone and pumping, because I have a limited reach then.

* Noah is pulling up on a few toys and lately he keeps pulling up on the side of the tub and trying to grab stuff outside the tub. I'm not a fan of that slippery situation! He is a chunk as it is, so add water to that and his strength and it takes all I have to keep him in the tub sometimes! I have found that giving him cups in the tub to play with works as a good distraction though!

* Noah isn't much on anyone besides me, Nathan, and Miss Laurie (babysitter), but he does warm up quickly to others. It even takes him a little bit to get used to people he sees regularly - but if someone he isn't really used to takes him from one of us 3, the lip comes out :(

We have started the party planning for his big 1st birthday! Our boy is growing so fast!

  1. Hi, Jessie. How are you? My name is Guilherme, I'm from Brazil. I work in an advertising agency called Ogilvy & Mather which has offices all over the world. Well, a few days ago, we were searching images of babies on Google for a campaign we are creating for our client Bandsports (a sports channel like Espn). And we found a picture of your lovely son Noah. Actually, it's the fifth image on this post (the one he's wearing military pants). Well, we would love to use this picture on one of the ads of the campaign. So, I'd like to know if you could you give me your email or phone number so that I can explain better about the campaign and the use of the picture. My email is guilherme.moreira@ogilvy.com. If you prefer, you can find me on Facebook: guilhermor@gmail.com. I don't use google+. Just created this profile to contact you here. Well, looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks and all the best. Guilherme
