Noah Now

Well, our little boy is growing up.  He weighs in at 36 1/2 pounds and is 39 inches tall.  I was surprised that only puts him in the 80th % for height.  Not that we're complaining, he's plenty tall!

If I only had one word to describe him, it'd be goofy.  Wait, or maybe sweet.  It's a close call. 

Here's what he's up to these days.

Viewing preferences:  He loves Curious George, Mickey Mouse - old episodes and new Clubhouse ones, Sophia the First (my only guess is he likes the music), and he still watches Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends sometimes.  He hasn't watched his Japanese movies much lately, but some. 

Food preferences:  It's all about cheese and crackers.  The little pages of crackers that come with the cheese and little red stick, ritz crackers, string cheese.  Then it's all about apple sauce and yogurt.  He eats the Fage yogurts with the fruit you mix in.  He's dropped a lot of his fruits.  Nerdstar will make them into a shake some nights.  He loves white grape juice and his nightly before bed milk. 

Actually, his real favorite food is a McDonald's chicken nugget happy meal with lemon aid and then ice cream after.  He'll sing-song "french fries, chicken, ice cream" all the time! 

His favorite song right now is "Snow Day" from one of his "For The Kids" cds.  Some mornings I just put it on repeat so I can go make my coffee and get a couple of things done before he's ready to get out of his crib.

Our days are pretty routine.  He wakes up anywhere between 8 and 9 a.m.  When he wakes up, he yells "HI" until one of us comes upstairs.  This is because one of the first things we've always said to him in the morning is "hi handsome!"  Then he usually demands "Snow Day" and jumps up and down in his crib to it for five to fifteen minutes. 

After he's actually out of bed, it's time for either Curious George on the computer or Sophia downstairs on the tv.  He'll say "stairs...  T" for that.  He usually lets me shower while he's watching T, if not, I'll put him in his room to play while I shower. 

Then it's time to get him dressed and either run errands or go to the park, or both.  We'll play at the park about 45 minutes in the mornings, then he wants to go back and play another 45 minutes or so once Nerdstar gets home.

Thankfully, he still naps from around 1:30 to 4 or so.  I have no idea how long it actually takes him to get to sleep, but as long as he stays in his crib and doesn't cry it's ok with me. 

After his nap it's usually more George or Sophia or play time until Ma gets home. 

We're working on bath time being about 8:30, then more play time in his room, then bed time by 10.  It's hard to get in dinner and park time and everything else before bath time.  He loves his bath, lets Nerdstar brush his teeth and then he brushes them. 

He has slept with a glow worm from the time he started sleeping in his crib instead of his bassinet.  He still has it and still loves it.  He also has two Pooh Bears, a small pillow pet, a small pillow from when he had his adenoids out, his longtime blanket and a new blanket, and now his Mickey Mouse.  Plus, he usually wants one of this little school buses, trucks, or cars in the bed, too. 

Our only current complaint is that he's getting harder to go out to eat with.  For a long time, he was content to eat his snacks and then play his game on the kindle.  Now, the kindle no longer holds his interest and he just wants to eat and then literally run around the restaurant.  Ugh.  We really need to up our cooking skills.

You need to print this post out for the baby book! It's a great snapshot of his life right now.
