Baby Noah - 3 Months

Woe is my blog.

It's so sad.  I can't keep up.

One day day.  One day I will have time again but first little baby Noah has to learn how to nap longer than half an hour!

Moving on.

Baby Noah at 3 months.

Weight: 13lbs. 8oz. (50th percentile)
Height: 24.75 inches (75th percentile)

Much like big brother he's getting long and skinny.  Very similar in size these two.  Again...I swear to god I gave birth to the same baby twice.  Any and all differences come from what we've chosen to do as parents, not the baby!

Clothes: He's wearing appropriately sized clothing, as in he's in 3-6 month clothes for everything except jammies, which need to be 6 month to fit his length but are then quite roomy because they're made for fatter babies.  But lately all he wears is jammies, I don't have the energy nor the desire to change his clothes unnecessarily in the morning.  Looking back at Jett's pictures from this age he is ALWAYS dressed in something other than jammies.  I can't tell you how many costume changes I did with so many.  But Noah, hell no, if those jammies aren't soaking wet from drool or spitup then he just stays in them.  I always thought people were weird for leaving their babies in jammies all I get it.  Why change them?  In fact, on days Jett doesn't have preschool he ends up wearing jammies all day long too.  This must be why I have such a strong desire to buy jammies ALL THE TIME.  Seriously, everytime I'm at Target I'm like hey, jammies!  Let's buy more!  Nobody needs more jammies around here.  Must. Stop.

Sleep: We moved him to his own bed and his own room already!!!  I'm so excited and proud of myself for doing this before 4 months, though I can't say it's helped him be any better of a sleeper than big brother.  He goes to bed at 6:30pm and sleeps until 10:30pm-11ish then awake again at 2am and 5am (and sometimes 1am, 3am and 4am...the hours between 11am-3pm have been hellish lately) and up for the day sometime between 6:30 and 7:30am.  As to napping, UGH, we're stuck napping for half an hour 1,000 times a day.  For like a week his first nap of the day was an hour or an hour and a half and I thought he was gonna consolidate naps finally but such luck...still napping for half an hour at a time.  Exhausting for everybody!

When he's awake he's a pretty happy camper for the first hour, smiling and laughing and chewing anything you stick in his mouth. Drooling.  You know...just being a baby.  Then he becomes a whining beast for another half an hour before he's ready for his next nap.  I've tried any and all timing variations to get him to nap longer but nothing works.  Jett did this until 6 months so...we'll see.  His only saving grace is that he requires absolutely nothing in the way of rocking/swaying/nursing/soothing to put to sleep.  Just white noise, sleep sack and lay him down and he does the rest.  BUT STILL DOESN'T SLEEP FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT LENGTH OF TIME.  Sleep lady was full of shit saying that nursing Jett to sleep was the reason he wouldn't sleep, this one doesn't sleep either sleep lady!!!


What else.  He absolutely adores big brother.  Jett is entertainment for him whenever it's just the 3 of us.  And amazingly Jett has yet to display any feelings of jealousy.  In fact he calls Noah HIS baby, too cute!  He's not great at helping with baby things but he's definitely good about waiting for me if I'm busy with baby.

Basically all I can think about right now is sleep and I can't think of anything else significant about my youngest child because I'm so obsessed (yet again!) with baby sleep.  Noah...sleep, please sleep!

So until next month...
