5 months old! (7.23.14)

Noah is 5 months old! What?!

I can't believe he's almost 1/2 a year old! This month has been an exciting one!

He rolled over finallllllly from his back to his tummy! He has been close for awhile, but his arm kept getting in the way! @ 5 months exactly he rolled! 3 times that day!

He has been enjoying his bouncer that a dear friend gave us... altho he still barely touches the floor with his toes! His head control is much much better.. so he plays around with all the toys and enjoys sitting up!

He naps 2-3 times a day and still isn't sleeping great (some weeks are better than others, but the past week he has been up every 1-2 hours!) I think he is still teething and maybe there are some growing pains waking him up too... he wakes himself up by kicking around in bed. He is waaay too strong to be swaddled and he never liked it, so I am hoping he gets used to putting himself back to sleep soon... mommy is TIRED! Buuuut I know everything is just a phase and one day we will both sleep through the night :) The transition to the pack n play was better than I thought it would be... but still not easy! He sleeps SO much better all snuggled up in the rocker, but I know he's just too big for that now and he has to learn how to sleep in his crib... It means less sleep for mommy but I know it's best for him!

All 3 of us were sick last week with a nasty summer cold, luckily that's over! He had a bad cough but was still in good spirits! I hate when he's sick tho :( I'd give anything to make him feel better faster!

He is still soooo happy and smiles and giggles all the time! This past month we went on another airplane ride to visit friends in New Mexico and he did really well! :)

He's also loving toys finally! He really grabs at them and of course is always putting everything in his mouth hah!

We also took him to the beach for the 1st time and put his feet in the ocean. He was tired, cranky, and coming down with that cold.. so he was pretty much not feeling it haha but it was still adorable and a lot of fun!

It has been a fun month! Just loving this lil dude and trying to cherish each moment!

4 months old! (6.23.14)

4 months old!!!

Another month has passed and Noah is just changing so so much!

This past month he is still obsessed with his hands.. wants them in his mouth at all times! He is pretty good at finding his thumb and the past few days he has really been sucking on it. He's also drooling a toooon... and may be starting to teethe!

He is really holding his head up now and "talking" like craaaaaaaazy! Today he has been going on and on! It's so so cute.. I love all the little sounds he makes! He has a lot to say.. wish I knew what he was saying (but soon enough I know I will!)

He's almost out of his rock n play sleeper.. We are going to transition him to the pack-n-play this week! I'm still not ready for him to be in his crib since he isn't sleeping through the whole night. It's a lot easier having him right next to me for the middle of the night feedings. Plus let's be honest, I want him close to me too! He's only this small for so long! I am trying to enjoy every moment but it's already going by way too fast!

He's like a little person now and starting to have this lil personality... he's so cute!

Father's Day was fun! Since it was my husbands first I tried to make it special and wrote him a book about our lil family. We went to lunch with my Dad and family.. and then just had a family dinner with the 3 of us that evening. It was relaxing and fun! I think my husband had a good time with his lil boy! :)

Overall he has been a happy baby.. but he does have his freakout fits!!! He usually fights sleep.. why why why! as my husband jokes.. it's just not logical! :) He is waking up 1-2 times over the course of the night.. so not bad... I plan to put him on a better napping schedule to see if that helps!

He's just so smiley and sweet and we love him SO SO SO much!
Happy 4 months my sweet baby boy!
