Baby Noah - 6 Months

It's hard to describe just HOW EXCITED I am that Noah can do this:

That's right, baby sitting means we are SO CLOSE to being mobile and thus...NOT REALLY A BABY ANYMORE.

And you know I hate babies.

I can now plop him down in the kitchen or the bedroom or anywhere really and he's a happy camper for awhile.  Unlike when all he could do was lay there and he would get MAD almost immediately.  Kid is not a fan of lying down.

So, here we are, 6 months!

Weight: 16lbs. 2 oz.
Height: 27 inches

Sizewise he's still very similar to Jett, in fact their 6 month stats are almost identical and he is wearing clothes at about the same time frame as Jett did.  He's in 6-9 month or 9-12 month clothes.

His hair is lightening up just as Jett's did, looks like it will go blonde as all the new hair growing in seems to be light.  And his eyes are gray.  

I am eternally amused at just how similar my two babies have been and then at the same time how different.

For instance, this is a picture of Jett at the same age as Noah is now.

That kid was ON THE VERGE of crawling and would not sit still!  This one on the other hand mostly just lays around on his back like this:


or just sits wherever you put him.


I think a huge part of this is that Jett is often around to entertain him and he doesn't have quite the same need to be on the move.


Or he's just lazy.

Either way, there's absolutely no way Noah will be crawling when Jett started crawling.

It's alright Noah, don't ever feel the need to be just like you're brother, I'm just pointing out a difference, it's not a bad thing, just different.  You've been sitting for weeks now and Jett didn't start sitting until almost the same day he started crawling.  So you've got that going for you.

He is semi-mobile in that he can scoot around on his butt.  Perhaps he will skip crawling altogether and just butt scoot around until he walks. 

Noah has perfected his roll this month.  Back to front mostly.  He still doesn't do it much, but it's definitely part of his repertoire and if he NEEDS a toy that is out of reach he will put in the effort and make the roll.  And by toy I mean ANYTHING THAT IS NOT A TOY and has potential to cause harm.

He's "eating" solids now.  Though how much he's actually ingested is anyone's guess.  We're going the Baby Led Weaning route again so really he just gets fruits or veggies or pancakes and sort of plays and experiments with putting food in his mouth.  For the most part it all seems to end up in and around the high chair...not so much in the tummy.  But whatevs, at this age it's all about playing and learning how to eat.  He's very gung-ho about the whole thing and really, that's what matters.

Sleeping...ugh, sleeping.  Sleep training began anew and has been really hit or miss.  Put down is easy again but he definitely isn't sleeping for anything resembling long stretches.  I am EXTREMELY happy when he goes 3 hours.  That means basically 3 feeds Every. Single. Night. And he definitely still spends an hour or two crying in the middle of the night every other night or so.


I'm hoping, like Jett, it will all be worth it in a few months and we'll have two amazeballs sleepers and I WILL FINALLY SLEEP.

Big dreams.

If we can get sleeping under control I think I will spend more time enjoying my kiddos rather than forever feeling like a hot mess who doesn't want to leave the house because I AM SO TIRED. 

But there you have it, half a year under our belts already and mama is so happy to be leaving the baby days behind us!
