Noah - 5 Months

Weight - 16 lbs

Height - 26 in

Appearance - Your baby face is going away and I think you look like a little man. Your hair is getting longer on top but I don't want to cut it yet so I swoosh it to the side making it look almost like a comb over. :) You have TWO, yes two teeth!! I was really hoping that gummy smile would stick around for a while but you just aren't having any of it.

Eating - You are becoming very interested in people food but mommy and daddy haven't allowed it yet. You are nursing every couple of hours but you are easily distracted. If there are other people around making noise, you turn your head to see and momma is not a fan of that!

Sleeping - You sleep from around 8 or 9pm - 7am usually waking up once, sometimes twice to eat. Naps are sporadic and are usually short cat naps. Mommy would like to get you on a schedule or at least longer naps but with being in and out of the house all day, it's so hard. BUT, even with only short naps you are always happy so I don't mind very much.

Sizes - You are in size 2 diapers and mostly 3-6 month clothes. When wearing your cloth diapers, 3-6 month sizes are getting too small.

See the teeth?
Milestones - TWO TEETH! The first came out on Friday, August 30 and the second on Thursday, September 12. They were your bottom two middle teeth with your right side coming in first.

Not only are you crawling like an inchworm, but you are getting much closer to actual crawling! You have been holding yourself in the pushup position for a while and have just begun getting your knees under you so you are on your hands and knees.

We got you a walker and you love it. It only took you a couple of days before you discovered you can move in it. Backwards, but just this week, you can now go forward too.

You are close to sitting on your own. You can sit up to 10 seconds and I think you will master it this month.

You had your first swing ride and just absolutely loved it! You would laugh every time the swing started going forward.  

 Likes - swings, taking a bath, chewing on everything, watching Alena and Christian play, people watching
Dislikes - when you have a dirty diaper, waiting to eat, being put down when you are tired (you like to be held or nursed to sleep)

Noah, my angel. We are having so much fun with you. Your funny personality is really starting to come out.You are always such a good and happy baby and we are constantly told from others about how great you are. Christian is completely head over heels in love with you and is such a good big brother to you. He is always coming to check on you, give you hugs and kisses, and to tell you how cute you are. I can see how much you want to try big people food but you'll just have to wait a little bit longer until mommy and daddy feel you are ready.  Noah, we could not have asked for a better baby than you and we are so glad we get to be the ones to raise you! Love you!
