16 lbs 11oz - 37 weeks
17 lbs 3 oz - 39 weeks
18 lbs 6 oz - 41 weeks
18 lbs 11 oz - 42 weeks

29 inches
Sleeping: We have finally bounced back to self-soothing when it comes to nap time and Noah will put himself to sleep. He has also started taking longer naps (finally) but it is still unexpected! Bedtime - is a whole new story. He sleeps all night for the most part, waking the odd time because of his teeth, but getting him to sleep lately at bedtime is a huge struggle that we are working on. So far only Daddy has the touch. But it still takes him a long time since these teeth came I to the picture. So we are working on self soothing at bedtime! This past weekend and week he let me put him down without Daddy, so we are making progress. I think it was just during that bad teething time, that he wanted what he is used to only, which makes sense!

Feeding: Noah started out this month (9 months) only nursing 2-3 times a day now and we have started to talk about weaning him on to homo milk, which we started this month. He has no problems with it at all! Now he is down to a feed first thing in the morning and a feed at bedtime. We also give him a bottle after I breastfeed him, so he is getting used to having the bottle at those times as well! He loves eating solids and is actually pretty good at chewing up chunks of food instead of puree's!  He eats 3-4 times a day. 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: 
- bread
- Homo Milk
- cantaloupe
- grilled cheese
- broccoli 
- beef
- French fries with ketchup (thanks Grandpa)
- Turkey
- Rice Pasta

Clothing: 6 month onesies and everything else is 9 months! Mainly because I just pack away the other sizes all together for the sake of not having to sort it out later! I bought his Christmas outfit in 12 months, so needless to say it will be a bit big on him, but I think he can pull it off! 

Diapers: I ended up purchasing another box of 2's when he turned 9 months, but he is now ready for size 3's! We have like 20 diapers left of size 2's, so we are finishing them off, although we are getting more leaks. We are still using Pampers Swaddlers! 

Looks: Blue eyes, and light brown hair. He is starting to look a bit more like Daddy!

What The Doctor Had To Say: We saw the pediatrician and he of course wasn't all that concerned with Noah's weight! He did mention that Noah has a big head, which is true, but that's a family thing, so we are not overly concerned, but he said he would keep an eye on it. We go back in 3 months!

We also saw the family doctor and she was happy to report that Noah has stepped up into the 25th percentile now for weight!! She is not nearly as concerned anymore and we don't have to see her until after his first birthday!! I did think he was coming down with something as he started to get a cough, but turns out it was just from the dry house! 

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

(got the walking video to work) 

Likes: Walking, getting scared by Mommy or Daddy, waving, clapping, his tractor and dump truck, music table, fire truck, his lovies, blankets, remote controls or phones, various toys, his steering wheel, mega blocks, eating, the dogs and cats, singing and dancing. He loves bath time and gets one every night before bed!

Dislikes: Tummy Time, falling being told NO, he does not like his stackers stacked and rips them apart as soon as you assemble them back together!

Fur Baby Update: They are starting to get more and more attention wanted or not from Noah now that he is moving about. Lux still loves Noah, but is a bit more cautious around him and Jazz loves laying beside Noahs play mat and watching him play. 

Personality/Events: When Noah turned 9 months old, we found he was getting his two front bottom teeth!! He uppers have disappeared, so hopefully these ones will stick around!! It was pretty funny to find them on his 9 month birthday! Noah also learned how to "blow kisses" - soo cute! He is a constant chatter box these days and loves making new noises! Noah also learned how to clap, which he thinks is pretty exciting and we think it is pretty cute! Crazy how proud you get when they learn something new!! He will wave now too!Noah met Santa for the first time this month and also ventured to take his first steps (with help of toys) on his own! Noah also went to see Daddy at work for the first time (in the field). He loved the new machine just as much as Daddy and Grandpa!

Mommy & Daddy Update: 
Noah is getting quite the personality and it is soo much fun watching him develop!! We are soo blessed to have him as our son and he is constantly making us laugh with his antics. This is such a fun age! 
He also rocked our family photos!! Which I will share soon!

I cannot believe he is 10 months!! He is doing so good. It is fun to see their little personalities develop for sure. And I love how excited they get doing things too. Avery feels the need to scream with excitement every time she walks alone now lol.

He weighs more than D!! She is still just 28. :) he's doing so much and trying so many new things!! Love it. He's such a sweet happy boy!! Yay for longer naps.

When he gets juice - do you give it to him in a bottle or a sippy? I can't get B to show any interest in the sippy!

How did you go about introducing food food? Every time I give B something other than Puffs or something similar, he gags and if he gags too much, he throws up! Steamed carrot chunks, banana, avocado, raspberry chunks, even yogurt melts can gag him. Frustrating, lol.
