Noah - 9 Months

16 lbs 8 oz - 8 months
16 lbs 11oz - 37 weeks

28.15 inches

Sleeping: Since Noah turned 8 months, we have been staying at the farm and therefore he has been in our room, so his sleep is not as good as it would be at home and he is harder to put down now too! He is not self-soothing at all anymore, which is a step backwards, but we had expect some setbacks for being out of our regular routine/home setting. Naps are a big struggle since we are dealing with teething. But with that being said, we were spoiled with a few long ones! Pretty sure my kid is addicted to gripe water, so we are cutting that out, as he will cry, refuse his soother without it. We worked that out rather quickly and dont give him that anymore! Another big issue with sleep was the time change! Noah did not adjust well for the first couple days, but by the end of the week he's worked it out, except for waking at 4:30 to nurse because he thinks it's 5:30! Which also means this mama's sleep ins are limited these days, but if we make it to 8, it still feels like 9 for now!! Once we moved back home we have more of a schedule now and Noah sleeps in until 8!! He has had a few nights where he has slept ALL night, which is great! Luckily he goes right back to sleep easily when he does wake in the middle of the night!

Feeding: Noah is nursing every 3-4 hours, sometimes 5 hour stretches, but more consistently 4 hours! He loves eating solids and is actually pretty good at chewing up chunks of food instead of puree's!  He eats 3 times a day. Luckily he enjoys having juice in a bottle or sippy cup now, so that will work during hard to nurse times! He is not so keen on water yet! Although little does he know his apple or pear juice is only once ounce of juice and 4 of water!

Foods Noah tried this month: 
- Farley's biscuits
- mumum's
- pear juice
- puffs
- grapes
- green mushies
- cheese
- white potato
- parsnips
- cottage cheese

Clothing: Noah has pretty much outgrown 6 month pants, sweat shirts, and sleepers, but some of the onesies still fit! I did have to go and buy some long sleeve onesies, as we didn't have many! Once we are a little more settled at home, I will go through his drawers and pull out his 6 month cloths and replace them with his 9 month ones!

We also found some baby socks that stay on! 

Diapers: Noah is still sporting size 2's! I had to go out and buy another box because there is no way he was ready for 3's yet and it's a better deal - smaller size means more diapers!! 

Looks: Blue eyes, and light brown hair. 

What The Doctor Had To Say: We actually rescheduled our doctors appointment until later this month because we see the pediatrician too. So I figured it was best to see her after that appointment!

Nicknames: Stretch, No Nap Noah, Little Bird, Sir, Captain, Mr. Magoo, Mr. Man, Bunny, Little Man,  Mama's Monkey. 

Likes: His hands, elmo, books - especially his Clifford Goes to Bed Book. His fleece blankets, his lovey bears, snuggles, his turtle, his exersaucer, walks in the stroller, Lux, Jazz, Grace and Lily. Noah loves seeing himself. Noah wants to stand all the time now or sit. He loves eating!! He loves reaching and grabbing everything he shouldn't and he loves watching football on Sundays! He also loves the remote control or pretty much anything he should have!!

Dislikes: Noah also hates being done eating! He is therefore also not impressed with having his face washed after a meal because he clues into the fact that it means he won't be getting more!

Fur Baby Update: Gracie is taking more and more interest in Noah, but neither dogs enjoy these moving toys that Noah loves to crash into them! The cats love meal time and are always first to check under Noah's seat for goodies, especially if it's chicken or cheese!! 

Personality/Events: Noah's baptism went really well!! He was in a great mood all day and clearly loves to party!! We also celebrated his first Halloween, where he went out as a walrus!!We went to a pumpkin patch for the first time too! Noah is on the slow move, spinning around on his belly during tummy time and he can go backwards, although he doesn't tolerate tummy time for long and needs a lot of attention while he is trying! He is also spinning around on his bum now too!! We moved back home and Noah has settled pretty quickly back into some sort of norm! Noah says Hi a lot more often, but still not really on command! Noah watched his first Disney movie - Frozen and loved it!!

Mommy & Daddy Update: Not much is new to report on our part! We are happy to be home and getting settled back into our routine. We are grateful that we were able to stay at the farm as opposed to a hotel while our house was being fixed!
