Baby Noah - Week 51

Before I get to Noah at 51 weeks, I want to wish my nephew a very happy birthday!  Aidan turns 1 today!  I'm so excited that Noah will have a cousin that is so close in age as they grow up.  I can just envision future Christmases where they are partners in crime!

Weight:  I didn't weigh him this week, but probably still right around the 26 lb mark.  I can't wait to measure him though because everyone says he looks so much taller!

Health:  Noah still has a random cough, but for the most part he is better.  We've even stopped giving him Motrin and teething tablets at night.  The 4th top tooth just broke through yesterday!!!

Sleep:  Not much has changed.  Some nights are better than others but he always ends up sleeping with us.  And he's down to one nap a day now (see milestones).

Clothes:  I've been trying to put Noah into his Halloween clothes a lot this week.  After next week he won't be able to wear any of it again!

Social:   Last Friday, Noah and I had our first music class at Wompy's (World of Musical Play).  It took Noah maybe two songs before he warmed up and then he was crawling all over the place and giggling.  This was just a trial class, but we decided to sign up for the remainder of the session.

On Saturday we went to a birthday party.  Then on Sunday, we went out to breakfast with a friend.  Chris has known Ken since elementary school and is godfather to his oldest daughter.  

This past week we had a lot of activities with friends we've met through the MOMS club.  On Monday we went to lunch and did a little shopping with Becky and Owen.  

On Tuesday, we went back to Alstede Farms with the MOMS club.  We went on the hayride, looked at the animals, bought some donuts, and stopped for lunch at Wendy's on the way home.  

On Thursday, we went over to JP's house for a play date.  It was so cute to watch them play with each other.  JP loved giving Noah hugs... Noah wasn't so sure how he felt about it ;)

Diet:  This week I started giving Noah a few bottles with whole milk instead of formula.  So far I've only done about one 4 oz bottle a day, but he's taken to it well so I hope a full transition will be easy.  

^^^ We had a Trunk or Treat on Thursday afternoon.  I plan to do a full post about it later, but I brought fruit cups for the little kids.  I found the idea on Pinterest, and made little jackolantern faces with a Sharpie.  

Baby Gear Love:   All things I've mentioned before.  His jumperoo is great now with helping me get ready in the morning.  I finally used the Britax Carrier (like the bjorn) out in public when we went to the farm.  And I also LOVE the iPad so he can watch Bubble Guppies in the car and not cry the whole way!

Daddy Time:   In addition to their weekly swim class, Chris has now become the official bath giver.  Every night before bedtime, Chris gives Noah his bath in the big tub.  It's become their thing :)

Milestones:    I think I can officially say that Noah has transitioned to one nap a day.  I really didn't think it would happen this early or so easily, but all this week he's been down to one nap.  He goes down anytime between 12:30 and 2 and normally takes around a 2 hour nap, sometimes a little longer.   I used to shower and get ready during his morning nap, so now I put him in his jumperoo and he watches Bubble Guppies while I get ready.

Likes:   He started doing the tongue thing last week, and he's still doing it this week.  Here he's combined his love of reading with his new love of sticking out his tongue :)

Mommy:  Not too much new for me.  Just loving spending my time with this cute little boy.  He has the cutest personality!

Happy 51 Weeks Noah!
