* you weigh 13 lb 8 oz and are 24 in long
* you eat every 2.5-4 hours during the day, and you take one longer stretch at night (5-6 hours)
*you wear 3-6 month clothes, alot of your 3 month clothes you have grown out of
*you wear size 2 diapers
*I don't think you've lost any hair, but you surely haven't gained anymore..and your head has grown...so it looks thinner.
*your eyes are still deep blue, like the ocean
*you move your arms and legs ALOT...you are getting in some good workouts in!
*you don't really appreciate being on your tummy a whole lot (unless it is to sleep)..but you can hold your head up when you lay down to check things out. You just don't like to do it for too long!
*you are SO happy in the morning, with lots to share about your night. I will bring you into bed with me and visit with you until Christian wakes up.
*your umbilical hernia is almost all the way resolved (YAY!)
*you LOVE your baths
*you have changed looks so many times in this last month..I feel like depending on how you are positioned you can even look so different! You are your own little guy (every now and then I can see glimpses of what Christian looked like...but overall you're just you!)
*you have developed a liking to a certain kind of pacifier...the orange ones from Newton
*you like your activity gym (especially the penguin and mirror part) and the bouncer seat (the ladybug that sings)
*you don't spit up a whole lot..but you're learning how to drool and blow bubbles real good!
*you laugh when you get really excited if I'm talking to you...its more like a short cough..but by the look on your face, its definitely a laugh!
*you know your family! You are especially fond of mama (I suppose we see each other the most still!)
*you are supporting yourself more when propped against something, not quite ready to sit in the bumbo seat yet though
*you still have a serious dislike for the carseat! Its really a shame, since you do have to be in one for QUITE a few more years when we drive anywhere. I have hope your feelings will change :)
*you're what the Dr called a "happy camper"...bottom line from this is, when you go poop you usually have an all out blow out!
*you like your fist..you like it alot! You try to eat it often :) I guess it has good taste.
*you like to be rocked lying on your tummy, standing up...especially in the evening. (Nothing like being picky huh!) We give you gripe water sometimes too..and that seems to settle your tummy. Its better than what it was from 4-8 weeks though!
*you have "happy eyes" when you really give a good smile...it gets me EVERY time..such joy!
*you have a family that LOVES you a WHOLE lot little fella!
Hers's a look over the past month....
You and your brother have a couple outfits that seem to match, and Christian thinks that pretty special so he will say, "take a picture of me and Noah!"
Well little man, you keep on growing and changing.... I'm grateful you're a healthy boy!
I love you lots, Noah Bear :)
