First Haircut for Noah

Although his first trip to the stylist’s chair took about ten months longer than Sam of the luxurious locks, Noah was finally deemed haircut-worthy earlier this month. He took to it like a champ, and came out looking super handsome. He kept a few curls in back – no mullet jokes please – and is cuter than ever!

Noah hit a big milestone about a week ago – pretty much overnight, he figured out how to pull himself up on his crib, which led to tracking down the hex wrench to drop the mattress down. He’s so pleased with himself as you can see here, vocalizing happily whenever he gets vertical.

Feeding Time
So I know you all are clamoring for more of cute guy #2 around here – so I’m obliging you all with the second Noah update in only a matter of days. The last few weeks we have finally ‘gone solid’ – well, if you can call solids mashed sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and other pablum. But after an initially reluctant start (his first feeding is captured above and in this slide show) he has taken to it like a champ. All you parents out there know that this means changes on the other end as well (uggh), but it’s a necessary step.

Speaking of steps, I also wanted to include some photos of Noah hanging out in his exersaucer. He *loves* that thing, and it lets him get his ya-yas out – he’s such a bouncer it’s crazy. There was this lovely light coming into the house late one afternoon, and I just love these photos – the image above is my favorite photo of Noah to date. Full slide show is here.

Finally, there is this photo I shot while testing my new camera (more on that separately). I swear it looks like Noah is delivering Shakespeare in this image. This, by the way, is his new pose – he hasn’t quite handled sitting up, rather he has adopted this ever-so-casual ‘Joe Namath lean’ as we’ve come to call it. Cuteness personified, I tell ya!
