Baby Noah - Week 15

Weight:  About 16 and a half pounds.  

Health Noah spent most of this week feeling sick.  He finally started feeling better on Wednesday, and I'm so glad!  It was so sad to see him so congested and the cough just broke my heart!  It was so unlike him to sleep all day and not constantly smiling and laughing.  It's nice to have my super happy boy back!

Sleep:   While he was sick he wasn't sleeping through the night, but slept more than I expected.  Many nights he would fall asleep before dinner and as a result would be up between 3 and 4.  Wednesday night (after he started feeling better), he went to bed at 8, woke up at midnight, 4 am, and 7 am.  He was totally happy, but just awake and wanting to eat.  I think that his appetite was back and needed to catch up on eating!     

Clothes: Some 3-6 and some 6-12.  Like his mommy, he carries his weight in his stomach :)

Social This week was really boring socially since Noah was sick.  Thankfully my mom came over to help out.  I wasn't getting much sleep since I was worried about his breathing and he was waking up more, so she would let me get a nap in during the day :)

Diet: All formula.    While he was sick he was definitely eating less each day... very strange for Noah! 

Baby Gear Love:  While sick, we rubbed Baby VapoRub on Noah's chest and feet and we had the humidifier running all the time.  

He also really likes his bouncy chair and likes to watch the alligator, elephant, and birdie do flips (grandma flips them around for him).  

do you think he has enough toys???

Noah has also started using his boppy pillow to do tummy time :)

Crying:  This week was bad, but it was because he was sick.  Usually Noah just cries when he's hungry, so it was strange to not be able to appease him with a bottle.  Thankfully I could usually calm him by rocking him in his glider.        

Likes:   Noah likes to read with Grandma!

This week I put Noah in his crib so I could use the bathroom.  At first he was crying, but after 10 seconds with the mobile on, he stopped.  I guess he likes those musical elephants!

And this week we learned Noah likes his thumb!

Milestones:  Noah survived his first cold!  

Noah also celebrated his first Valentine's Day!  Noah gave me a chocolate heart and a card that had a sticker inside saying "Well Loved Mom".  

Postpartum:  It was inevitable that I would catch Noah's cold, so here I am with a sore throat, headache, and runny nose.  I'm just glad my symptoms didn't start until the tail end of Noah's cold.  It would have been brutal taking care of him feeling crummy.  

Despite feeling sick, I had an amazing Valentine's Day yesterday.  Chris surprised me with chocolates and a cookie in the morning and Noah got me this huge chocolate heart.  Chris had also ordered me flowers, the website said they were "delivered", but they never came.  Chris was so upset, but I was honestly thrilled with all the other surprises I got that day :)

Happy 15 Weeks Noah!
