Six Months & 26 Weeks

Noah Bear, you are six months!  You are grown up so fast and I couldn't be happier. 
Jeff and I commented this week how Noah looks so much older than six months.  Not only is he big in size but when we look at other kids his age we don't see the child like face we see in Noah. His features just seem more like those of a young child. 

  • How old is Noah?:  26 Weeks | Six Months
  • Noah is how big?: 20ish lbs
  • Stats: Size 3 diapers |  6 or 6-9mo clothing | Full (LARGE) head of fuzzy hair minus his bald "sleeping" spot. (Just like an old man except lower =) | Still has sweaty feet | Abs of steel | Sitting on his own | Reaching for objects | Holds his sippy cup and "drinks" but doesn't tip the cup
  • Sleep: Sleeping consistently from 7:30pm to 7:30am. Naps four times during the day. The first one being the long one around 1:20, the next two about 50mins and the final nap around 30-40mins.
  • Milestones: We worked hard on the sippy cup last week and got pretty far.  Now we just have to work on the tipping part so the water can come out. We also offered some puffs this week to work on pinching with the fingers.  Twice he grabber the puffs and brought them to his mouth and then fell right before he could get them in. Lots of progress.
  • Mom Check-in: Excited and a little sad about leaving for my first alone trip this weekend.  It's going to be great to be of mom duty and seeing someone elses' child but I'm really going to miss Noah.  Jeff too. =)
  • Best Moment of the Week: Finished out family pictures yesterday and Noah was a champ.  The weather was rather chilly.  About 20 degrees with some wind, but he handled it great.  We got there and took a ton of pictures right away and he was laughing and smiling... Excited to see how they turned out.   Noah did get a little grumpy at the end but I was freezing too so I can imagine he wasn't very comfortable near the end of all the pictures.  Overall very happy with Noah's effort.
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Noah has a Dr. Apt this week and I'm excited to see what the Dr. says.  Noah looks great to us and hasn't even got sick yet which I'm so thankful for.  Looking forward to see in what percentage he falls since we think he quite the moose. And finally excited for my trip to Tennessee! It's been almost four years since I've seen my friend Emily and now she has a little baby girl to meet too!
And as ussual, I'll leave you with a great Noah picture :

On our Christmas cards that is. =)  Already in the mail and feeling productive.
