Noah,You have done it again this month: grown up so fast! I can't believe how much babies change in that first year. Although to an outsider it maybe doesn't seem like much but the way you hold your head up so much stronger and look around watching your sister and brother makes you feel older. You don't like to just snuggle on my shoulder anymore, you'd rather face out. Even at meal time you like to sit on one of our knees now like you have a spot in the conversation! You'll even flail your arms more so we have to be careful you don't knock over our cereal bowl or push our utensils off the table.
You do take about an hour nap in the morning but I'm terrible at enforcing that so far. Usually you just doze as we run errands. It's hard to sleep for a good chunk of time because Elijah is so loud he always wakes you up! Once he's down for his afternoon nap though you take a good one too (about 3 hours long). You still prefer to be swaddled and laying on your back. I tried your tummy for a nap one day and you fell asleep really well but kept waking up because you weren't swaddled.
You are great at nursing. Bottle are pretty "eh" yet but we'll keep at it because you'll need to learn to use them more when I start work. You are great at belching, ha ha! You've started spitting up a little bit and I think it's because you've also started drooling a ton now so you have more saliva in your tummy. I have you wear bibs more often now and you usually suck on your arm or someones shoulder when they hold you.
You like to suck on the teddy bears ears on your carseat straps and you talk and coo and laugh at us. You smile and giggle when we tickle you too. You like to jump on your feet and be raised in the air (not thrown, just raised up).
You are just moving into 6 months clothes now. You wear size 2 diapers and size 1 shoes, although you're usually barefoot and sometimes in socks if it's a cooler morning. Your eyes are still blue and you hair is lighter than Abigail and Elijah.
