Today my baby boy, Noah, turned 7 months old! His first year is just flying by! I am so thankful to have this little boy in my life. He is such a joy and the light of our lives. His sisters adore him and he is fascinated by them!
At 7 months Noah:
~Can roll both ways...across the floor!
~Is working towards pushing himself up on all 4s.
~Can scootch around (usually backwards!)
~Babbles and squeals constantly. I think his first word is right around the corner!
~Eats like a champ! He's still nursing or drinking EBM about 5 times a day. He's also eating solids (homemade by Mommy! Yay!) 3 times a day. His favorites are Sweet Potato, Avocado, Peas and Carrots. Chicken is pretty much the only thing he won't eat but that might be because I didn't puree it well!
~Sleeps from 7pm to 5am. Then he nurses in bed with Mommy and goes back to sleep until 8 or 9a! He also take two 2-2 1/2 hour naps during the day. He's a great sleeper (A first for us!) and prefers to be laid down in his crib awake with his Sound/Light Projector, binky, Jedi dog and StarWars bear so he can fall asleep on his own. Such a blessing!
~Loves his jumperoo and any toy he can stick in his mouth!
~Wears 6-9 month clothes but will be outgrowing them soon. He's wearing size 3 diapers and will be for a while still.
I'm not planning on going grocery shopping this week since there's a holiday delay in getting Jason's next check. I'm going to do my best with what we've got at home already. We flip flopped some of our meals from last week and had leftovers one night because no one was super hungry. Can't wait to go grocery shopping though because I want to try some new things (couscous!) next week! :) Have a great week everyone!!
Monday 1/17- Tamale Pie (This was great! Even Miss Picky Hannah ate it...beans and all! I eliminated the pepper in it because I can't stand them. LoL)
I always work on Mondays so I never go grocery shopping until Tuesday or Wednesday. My weekly plans start those days. This one is Wed-Tues. :) I'm a bit burned out in the cooking department so I have a few easy or freezer food days on here. I am trying a new recipe on Tuesday though. (In fact, I'm trying a new one tonight too from last weeks plan...must be a Tuesday thing!)
Wednesday 1/12- Lemon Butter Tilapia, Brown Rice, Green Beans Thursday 1/13- Veggie Lasagna, Salad Friday 1/14- Date Night! Takeout for Mommy and Daddy! Saturday 1/15- Eggs, Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy Sunday 1/16- Ham, Stuffing (both from freezer), Broccoli Monday 1/17- Pulled Pork (freezer), Baked Potatoes, Corn Tuesday 1/18- Tamale Pie
Head on over to OrgJunkie for more menu plans and recipes!
My little No-No got his first tooth (At 9 days shy of 7 months)! It just broke through today without any fussing at all from him! :) You can just see the tip of his bottom right center tooth. I can't believe how fast his first year is flying by...it seems like he was just born. Now he's rolling and scootching across the floor, having fits of Baby Giggles when we play Peak-A-Boo and eating solids like a mad man!
Pretty soon this sweet, gummy baby smile with be a tooth-filled grin!
I'm a little late since we're already a full week into 2011 but I plan on working on my list this weekend! Such a great idea. Make a list of 52 household projects and tackle one each week for the year. Sounds like a perfect way to get our house in order and keep up with it.
Hopefully I can stay on the ball this time! Blogging is a good way to keep me on track and help me remember the fun things we experience every day. :)
We had a great and busy Christmas with our families. The girls had a blast and I think Avery really liked having her sister home for Winter Break. Hannah's winter break was extended by a day because we had a VERY rare SoCal Snow Day! We had about 4 inches here which is a ton for the Mojave Desert! The girls had fun playing until the sun came out and it melted away...
2010 was a happy but very stressful year. At this point, Jason has been out of work for over 4 months and finances are very tight. We're just trying to push through until he gets a job and I get one closer to home. We pulled Avery out of Preschool before Thanksgiving and she really misses her friends. We hope we can send her back as soon as our jobs stabilize.
For now, Jason is enjoying all the time he has to spend with his little boy. This is the most time he's been able to spend with any of our kids, especially at such a young age. Noah's a super easy baby and I'm hoping he'll help me convince his Daddy to let us have 1 more baby in a year or two! :)
I'm Stephani, a 28 year old wife to Jason and Momma of 4 (Hannah-7, Avery-5, Noah-2 and Phoenix born 9/11/12). I work full-time and while I enjoy my job, I am forever wishing I could stay at home with my kiddos.
