Noah - 8 Months

Weight - 17.3 lbs With all your mobility, your weight has significantly slowed down but that's OK. I know you are growing and perfectly healthy.

Height - 27.5 in Getting long and skinny.

Appearance -. With your 8 teeth (yes, 8!) you look twice your age. Your hair is just crazy. Very light and fluffy and turning blond. I need to cut it but am stalling because I know you will look older and I'm trying to preserve any part of my baby that I can.

Eating - You nurse every 2-3 hours, generally closer to 2. I can not nurse you in public because you will constantly unlatch to see what is going on. You have gone through all your baby food and I am not buying you more. You are eating table food with us and are very good about eating everything.

Sleeping - You sleep from around 8 or 9pm - 7am (although you will sleep until 8 or later if we don't have to get up early) usually waking up once, sometimes twice to eat. I thought you were getting into a napping routine but with the busy holiday season, that went out the window. Unfortunately, you do a lot of your napping in the many car rides throughout the day.

Sizes -  You wear 6-9 month, some 12 month clothes, and size 3 diapers.

Working on my fitness...
Milestones - Cruising furniture and most recently, letting go and doing a controlled sit down. I have no doubt you will be standing on your own this month.

Getting your 6th, 7th, AND 8th teeth.

You wave!!! It is the cutest thing. You will open and close your hand.

You were left with a sitter for the first time this past month and did OK.

 Likes - being outside, Ernie (the cat), food, the Christmas tree, taking a bath, chewing on everything, watching Alena and Christian play, looking out the windows and doors
Dislikes - having things taken from you like toys or ornaments that you are not supposed to have, when you have a dirty diaper, diaper changes

Noah, you are such a BUSY baby and really keep us on our toes. You get into anything and everything within your reach. You love getting the dog food and have eaten some. Our Christmas tree is bare on the bottom because you like to get the ornaments and have broken a few. Noah, you really do not like diaper changes and try your hardest to roll over and get away. And there is almost always crying during your middle of the night changing. You are such a great self entertainer and are perfectly happy to be left to play and explore on your own. But you do love when the kids and daddy play with you too. You are such a fun and enjoyable baby!
