Noah @ 10 months

Noah, 10 Months
So much to say about our littlest man of the house. A few weeks ago, he began standing up on his own – balancing remarkably well, mind you – and now, has added an additional degree of difficulty by demonstrating his new ability to clap! 

He is so proud whenever he does this – I’m determined to catch this on video sometime soon. 

We now have a great routine with him at bedtime, where he loves to read his animal kisses and noisy farm books. He turns the pages, pats the tactile animals, and even pushes down hard enough to make the mouse squeak – a trick his parents didn’t even realize was part of the book until Sam was about a year old. 

He and Sam are best of friends, and we constantly find them making each other laugh, to the others’ delight. Tonight in fact, Noah gave Sam the cutest kiss on the cheek when Sam was trying to entertain him at the end of dinner. Those two are going to be thick as thieves as they grow older – and Amy and I are going to have to fend pretty hard for ourselves. Amy does keep reminding Sam that whenever he takes away a toy or bop him, Sam’s only teaching Noah to give it right back someday. Sam doesn’t quite appreciate this concept – yet. 

Noah News!

Amy tells me that this blog is suffering from second-child-syndrome – that I’m neglecting son #2 in the quantity of news posts about his antics and general cuteness. So this is intended to remedy that.

Noah gets cuter and cuter by the day. Above, you can see him sporting one of my favorite new expressions – this ‘who me?’ look as he bashfully casts his glance your way as he tries to shove one (or at times, two) fists into his mouth. Yes, he does seem to be teething. He’s wearing his new bucket hat I brought back for him from my recent trip to South Beach – he’s ready for Summer!

What else? Well, he’s rolling over on his tummy with regularity now, giggles, laughs and smiles at pretty much anything, and earlier this week, seems to have realized that those hands are connected to him – holding them up in front of his face, reaching out quite purposefully, and generally entertaining himself with his own appendages.
