Baby Noah - 25 Weeks

Weight:  As of Tuesday, Noah is officially 20 lbs 7 oz and 28 inches long!  That means he's in the 90th percentile for weight and the 95th percentile for height.  We definitely have a big boy on our hands, but he is proportionate :)

Health:  The doctor said Noah is doing great and right on track with his age!  Noah had his 6 month immunizations on Tuesday.  He really cried this time but recovered quickly.  Though he did sleep a lot when we got home that afternoon.

Sleep:  Noah is a usually a great sleeper.  He goes to bed around 8pm, but sometimes if he's had a late nap he stays up til 9.   He then wakes up between 5:30 and 6:30.  Sometimes we have some random nights where he wakes up a few times, but I would say he normally sleeps through the night.  After his immunizations on Tuesday, he slept all afternoon, woke up at 9pm, then went back to sleep at 11pm.  

Clothes:  Wearing size 6-12 and 9 months.

Social:  We had a busy weekend with family pictures and a family party.  We took the rest of the week pretty easy.

Diet:  Noah tried his last two Stage 1 Fruit... Mangos and Prunes!  

The doctor also told us that we can start giving him 3 meals a day.  So Wednesday, I gave him green beans and pears at lunch.  Noah really loves eating solids!

Baby Gear Love:  We definitely love the vertical bumpers that I described in the Nursery post.

Daddy Time:   Chris has always made it a point to hang out with Noah when he gets home from work.  Usually they sit together while we watch TV, but the doctor said that it's really important to spend around an hour a day stimulating Noah.  While I do a lot with Noah each day... playing, going for walks, and singing to him all the time, I've decided to add some dedicated playtime each day where we do a combination of playing on his back and stomach, helping him sit, and trying to get him to stand.  We also do a little bit of reading.  I've broken it into three 20 minute sessions.  I do two of the "sessions" and Chris does the third with him after dinner.  So we are now turning off the TV and concentrating on really playing with Noah.

Milestones:  Noah got his 6 month immunizations this week.

Noah is also starting to be able to hold his bottle himself.  He can't really drink well when he does, but it's pretty cute.

Likes:  At Easter Grandma gave Noah this Lamb in his basket.  He didn't really play with it at the time, but just the other day I gave it to him while we were on the changing table.  He immediately gave it the stare down and then a hug.  Since then he likes to hug "Lambie" and then chew on him, which is what Noah likes to do with most things.

Since Noah likes to chew on everything, it's no surprise that he likes Sophie the Giraffe!

Postpartum:   My Portraiture Class started this week and I got that new lens that I had wanted... good week for Meghan!  I also am going for a little pampering this morning.  I haven't had a facial since I got pregnant with Noah, and I'm starting to break out again, so I figured it was time to get one!

Happy 25 Weeks Noah!
