All About Noah

Today's post is all about Noah. I've posted plenty of pictures (don't worry - I've got more to post, just not today).

Let's start by saying he's a big baby. I mean BIG. At his two month doctor appointment he was in the 90th percentile for weight and height. He just turned three months old last week and he is wearing 6 month clothes. He's got these super cute fat rolls where the creases at his joints never see the light of day. His cheeks are so cute and round and . . . jolly.

His hair is still curly and dark, though getting lighter. It will be interesting to see what color it ends up after he gets done being a baby. And if it will stay curly. It gets really curly after I wash it and then stays however it dries. If I forget to brush it and "direct" the curls, they stay in chaos. Today I tried to brush it into a mohawk of sorts and it is pretty cute.

Noah is a very light sleeper most of the time. He usually takes short naps during the day. He sleeps best in his car seat or swing. At night he still sleeps in his reclining chair. He was getting up three times a night for the first two months. Now he is down to one or two times. On vacation last weekend in Bear Lake he actually slept 8 hours at a time during the night! And he slept soundly in his car seat on the beach while we played. I guess we just need to go on vacation more often!

Noah loves to be talked to. He smiles and laughs a lot when people talk to him. He makes lots of noises, almost like he is trying to have a conversation with you. His favorite thing to look at, besides people, is the leaves in the tree. He really enjoys going out in the Baby Bjorn and almost always falls asleep in it when we are out and about.

We sure love having Noah in our family and his easy-going nature (so far) is a blessing! He brings such joy to us!
