15 months

Really can't believe that 15 months has come and gone. I remember Faith at 15 months and I just felt like she was so grown up. Maybe because Noah is our last baby, I don't feel like 15 months is grown up at all. He is still very much a baby. He is my baby and I am holding onto every last ounce of him being a baby. Never the less he is growing up, and here is what is going on with my Squish... Noah, You are 15 months old and weigh about 26-27lbs ( we will find out on Jan 2nd ) You wear 18-24 month clothes. Some 2t also. You have a whole mouth full of teeth. Seriously! A freaking mouth full. You are still a biter, but are getting a lot better about not biting. ( please note, you do not bite while nursing. You just bite everything else) You wear a size 6.5 extra wide shoe. Finding shoes for you is a nightmare. You are obsessed with cars. All kinds of cars. They are overtaking my house. But I don't mind because I adore the way you make your little car noises when you play with them. You are one tough cookie. Since you are such a dare devil, and have no fear, you fall A LOT! But you usually don't cry, and if you do it is for a second and then you are off again. You are still nursing and I don't think we will be stopping anytime soon. :) You are sleeping through the night still. You are showing interest in going potty on the potty chair. You even pooped in the potty the other day. I was so proud. But not as proud as your big sissy was. She adores you. You have already had two hair cuts since you turned one. And you barely have any hair. As soon as one curl pops up or one piece of hair touches your ears it is time for a cut. You still don't really care for veggies and or fruits. The only way I can get you to eat anything like that is in those stupid little pouches. UGGH. You climb onto everything. I spend most of my day chasing you and trying to keep you out of trouble. You really enjoyed Christmas this year. You LOVED opening gifts and signed please over and over wanting us to take everything out of the box right away. You are saying a handful of words and still signing. I am really working on saying more words though. You love reading yours books that make noises. You are a complete and total HAM. You have the cheesiest smile and it makes me laugh every single time you do it. We love you so much baby brother....

14 months old

Noah James, You my son, make my heart so happy. You are a Momma's boy to the MAX. But you are slowing starting to go with other people. You still cry every time I drop you off at MOPS. And you are usually crying when I pick you up. You are walking everywhere. You can't stand for me to carry you. You are a climber. You would climb up the walls if you could. You can sign " More, all done, milk, water, eat, night night, and up " You can say " momma, dada, sis, this, TuTu, touchdown, ball, and Book " ( There could possibly be a couple more things, but I am forgetting right now. Oh wait, You can also say NO. ;) You are wearing a size 5 diaper. I am scared that you will be in depends before you are potty trained. YIKES! You LOVE your big sister, but lately the two of you have been bickering. You are wearing a size 6 xw shoe.You are wearing 18- 24 month clothes, and some 2T. You are still nursing a couple times a day. You sleep in your own room still, but every morning you wake up around 7am, and get back in bed with me. You nurse and then fall back asleep. Those are my favorite moments. You are into everything. You can open the doors in our house, you can turn the bathtubs on, you play in the toilet, and you try to climb up the stove. You are trouble with a capital T!!!! You are seriously adorable. I am not just saying this because I am your mom, but we can't go anywhere without people stopping us to tell us how cute you are. You Bite. But we are slowly working on it, and I think it has gotten a little better. You are finally starting to like it when I read you books. You are obsessed with cars, and balls. You have had two hair cuts now, even though you don't have a lot of hair. I can't stand when little boys hair touches their ears.You weigh about 27lbs, and I am not sure how long you are. I know that you are growing though because we aren't having to roll your pants legs as often. You can't stand if someone else is getting my attention. If one of the dogs even sits in my lap, you feel the need to come over and take over. We love you sweet baby boy....
There are so many days where I hate being a stay at home mom. No joke, I really do. I miss the adult interaction. I miss not financially contributing to my family, I miss my friends, and I miss just having a little bit of "me time" But at the end of each and every day, I quickly change my mind and realize how blessed I am to have these two beautiful children in my life. I am so lucky to be able to stay at home with them and help and watch them grow. They drive me absolutely crazy, but they are my everything.
