Baby Noah - 24 Weeks

Weight:  About 20 lbs.  We get the official weight and height on Tuesday!

Health:  He's a happy and healthy baby!

Sleep:  Noah's seems to be getting back on track to sleeping.  This week he's been going to bed between 7:30 and 8:30 and is sleeping around 10-11 hours.  Naps are a little less predictable.  Whenever we go out, they are totally thrown off and he only has cat naps.  When we stay in he normally takes a good 2 hour nap in the morning and another in the afternoon.

Clothes:  Still wearing size 6-12 in Gap.  At Carter's and Polo, he's currently wearing size 9 months, but now when we buy him anything new for the summer, we buy him size 12 month clothes.

I just thought this picture was hilarious!  It's as if he's falling or something!

Social:  Last weekend Noah got to see his Uncle Luke.

As I described in Monday's post, we took Noah to the park last Saturday.

We also took Noah out to eat with us at Olive Garden Saturday night.  He had so much fun staring at people at the other tables.

On Sunday, we drove out to Philly for a Baptism/Baby Naming Party.   One of my best friends from college, Jenn, had a baby girl just 2 weeks before Noah was born, and it was the first time the two met.  It was super cute to see the two of them together.  Since Noah doesn't see a lot of babies, it always amazes me how big he is compared to other babies his age!

It was really nice to see a bunch of my college friends.  I'm so glad we've stayed close even after all these years (7 to be exact).

Diet:  Noah normally has a bottle when he wakes up, and then some oatmeal and a fruit.  He then drinks 6 oz every 3 hours or so, and has his "dinner" of rice cereal and a vegetable around 4:30/5.  Though sometimes I hold him off til 6:30 so that Chris can feed him.  He then drinks another bottle before bed.

Noah tried pears on Friday and tried his last Stage 1 vegetable on Tuesday... peas.  I assumed he wouldn't like the peas, but as usual, he likes EVERYTHING!  I love how Chris gets so into feeding Noah, complete with loud airplane noises.

Baby Gear Love:  Now that we are going more places with Noah and he can hold his head up well, we are using our Britax Baby Sling more.

Grandma got Noah a new toy this week.  While he hasn't spun it himself, he was fascinated by it.  I'm sure in the future this toy will keep him occupied during dinners out.

Daddy Time:  Chris and Noah watched the Master's on Sunday.  He Tivo'd it since we were in Philly during the day, but they watched it together when we got home.  While Noah didn't stay up to watch the end, Chris was excited that the Australian Adam Scott won in a pretty exciting sudden death playoff!

Chris also has this thing where he lifts Noah up above his head and says "The tallest baby in the history of the World!"  Noah loves being lifted up high :)  Chris can't wait until he can put him on his shoulders... it should be very soon.

Milestones:  Noah is really starting to move.  He now is able to roll from his stomach to his back going in both directions.  I also noticed that he is able to scoot around on his back all over his activity mat.  I will put him down there to play while I go on the computer, and next thing I know he has moved and is playing with a different animal!

Likes:  Noah LOVES to chew on everything, especially his burp cloth.  Chris thought it would be funny to join in.

Noah likes his feet.  He now tries to grab them and loves sticking them in the air.

It's making diaper changes a little more interesting since he grabs his feet the whole time!

Postpartum:   This week I met up with two friends.  Jill and I met for lunch on Tuesday and on Wednesday, my friend Marlaina came over and we ordered some take-out.

Happy 24 Weeks Noah!
