Week 36 + Our Fun Day Off

Noah is getting more and more fun every day.  I started to get a little emotional when he started crawling this week.  For whatever reason, the fact that he can move on his own is really starting to make me realize that he's getting super old!  Soon I'm going to have a walking toddler around who yells no at everything I say, who climbs on all my furniture and tells me the same story over and over....  I'm excited!
We've also just seen his first tooth starting to show.  He's been handling it so good.  Still sleeping at night and just being a little grumpy during the day.  If all teeth are like this I think we're in good shape. I'm super pumped to give him so new food.  Teeth open up so many more options and since he's already trying to eat everything we eat these teeth will be super helpful for him.

  • How old is Noah?:  36 weeks
  • Noah is how big?: 23ish lbs
  • Stats: Size 3-4 diapers |  9 or 12mo clothing | Abs of steel | Stands holding on to objects | Sit to stand! | Can finally crawl |
  • Sleep: Sleeping consistently from 7:30pm to 7:30am. Naps three times during the day. A morning, an afternoon (both 1.5-2hrs) and a cat nap (45min)
  • Milestones: Noah's been an over achiever this week.  He's officially crawling and he can now give kisses on command.  So cute! He also just started cutting his first tooth... it should be out within the next couple of day, right?
  • Mom Check-in: I had a super fun girls night last week and had some co-workers over for some drinks and dirty gossip talk.  It was everything we all needed.  It's crazy how we all have such similar problems.  Life is tough, but it's nice to have girlfriends to vent to and ones that make you laugh for hours on end.
  • Best Moment of the Week: I got my very first Noah kiss.  Be jealous.
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Excited for warmer weather is an understatement.  The amount of snow we have gotten this year is out of control. 101.1 inches as of yesterday in Grand Rapids... a little more where we are because of the lake ya.  Bring me some warm weather.

So, while we've been watching Noah and all his milestones this week, Jeff and I have been super exhausted parents... mostly Jeff and all his crazy overtime hours at work.  Luckily for us, we took yesterday off to re-charge and spend some time together and with Noah.  We found out Noah has grown out of his winter boots thanks to his ginormous cankles so of course had to go through all of his shoes and see what didn't fit anymore.  We did find some Nikes that have been sitting around waiting to be worn.  So grown up Noah!

We did some grocery shopping and some cooking.  I've been wanting to make hummus for a while now.  It's just so expensive at the store and my mom suggested I make my own and it was super easy.  So I did.  And it was super easy and so yummy.  I'll for sure be making that again.  You can find the recipe here. I left the tahini out and added some sesame seeds and extra garlic in.  So yummy. 

And then Jeff stated how he wished we had bagel chips to go along, so I suggested we make our own which ended up being a great idea.  They turned out amazing and we snaked on them all day until dinner.  Again, something else we'll be making again for sure.

We finished our day by visiting a new home store in our area. "At Home" Has anyone else ever head of it?  I hadn't, couldn't even find a website.  It's super big and warehouse-y. It has a ton of furniture and home decorations at a really good price.  We'll have to keep that in mind when we start building our house. It was a good trip to get Noah out of the house for the evening too.  When we got home we did some snuggling, ate dinner and bath time came in no time. =)  Super great day off. 

Finally, I'll leave you with our latest super cute problem.  Noah is obsessed with phones, remotes, computers... anything electronic.  You know, like most babies.  And so being the mean mom I am, I turn the camera on and watch the show... keeping the phone just close enough to his reach to get him excited.  
He never did get the phone though.  Mom win!
