Baby Noah - Week 21

Weight:  About 19 lbs.  I love my chubby man.

Sleep: Noah's has continued to sleep well.  He sleeps through the night, going to bed around 8pm and waking up at 6:30.

Clothes:  He's wearing all 6-12 or 9 month size clothes.

Social:  Last weekend we decided to not make any real plans and spend some quality time just the three of us.  We did end up taking a trip to Target and Babies R Us, but that was about it.

On Tuesday, Noah and I met my friend Jill for lunch.  It was a gorgeous day and it was really nice to get out for a few hours.  I made the most of my trip out and we stopped at Carter's to pick up a few things.  Noah was the perfect baby and let Jill and I enjoy our Smashburger burgers while just sitting there in his stroller.  I also got to savor my Stewart's Root Beer Float... yummm!

Grandma came over to watch Noah on Wednesday and she fed him his "dinner".  Noah loves eating with her... she lets him hold his own spoon!

On Thursday, Noah and I went down to my parents' house.  My brother, Luke moved home and I wanted Noah to see him.

Diet:  This week we kept giving Noah new fruits and vegetables.  On Sunday, Noah tried squash.  On Monday his cheeks were red, but I figured it was from rubbing his face into his burp cloth.  He had squash again that afternoon, but then I noticed that he had a slight rash on his stomach.  I called and left a message with the doctor.  Tuesday morning they called me back and said I should bring him in, but by then the rash was gone.  So instead they told me to just stop giving him the squash and to watch for any other symptoms.  Thankfully, he hasn't had any more symptoms since.

He tried apples on Wednesday and it seems like he really likes them.


Baby Gear Love:  While it's not technically "baby gear", one of the things I can't live without is my camera.  We got a Nikon D5100 from my parents Christmas 2011 with the hopes of getting pregnant soon.  We knew that we wanted a really good and "fancy" camera so that I could take lots of pictures of fast moving kids.  I'm so glad to be taking a photography class so that I can take even better photos.

I also love my iPhone!  Not only do I take lots of candid snapshots with it, but it keeps me entertained while feeding and rocking Noah.  I use it to play music while I rock him to sleep and once he's asleep you can find me reading blogs or playing Words With Friends and Tetris.  

Crying:  Just yesterday, Noah had a horrible car ride and was hysterically crying.  Thankfully my mom was with me, so she drove and I tried to console Noah.  I think he had some really bad gas, cause half way home he had this big bubble and then a lot of spit up.  After that he started calming down and ended up falling asleep.  It was so hard to see him in such pain and so upset and not really be able to help him.

Milestones:  First allergic reaction :(  He also pulled my glasses off my face for the first time.  I was used to the hair pulling, but this was a surprise to me!

Likes:  Noah now loves sitting up (with our help obviously).   He also loves playing with his rings, football, and putting anything he can in his mouth.  I've also found a spot on his cheek where if I make loud kissy noises on him, he starts to smile big and almost giggle.  I can't wait to hear a full laugh from him.

Postpartum:  This week was fun... I got to meet up with 2 of my friends and I even went out on my own.  My mom came over on Wednesday afternoon to watch Noah until Chris got home.  I got to go to the mall and do a little shopping on my own and then have a leisurely dinner with Marlaina and talk about adult things.  Though I have to admit that I did talk about Noah a lot!

I'm also really enjoying my photography class.  This week I am practicing taking pictures on manual!

Have a great Easter!
