8 months old

Where has the time gone? I can't believe that Noah is only 4 months away from being 1. Bittersweet!!! Noah is so close to crawling. He gets on all 4's and sticks his bum in the air. It's so cute. Tyler and I spend our evenings trying to get him to crawl. The only thing he will scoot forward for is this little football he has...Not a good sign. lol. He is still a HUGE eater. He eats 2 jars of food a day and 1-2 rice bottles, along with nursing. I've yet to give him something to eat that he doesn't like. He likes to talk. His favorite thing to say is 'Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah, Bah..." over and over again. He also loves to squeal in his highest voice. It's great during sacrament meeting :) He's wearing 9/12 month clothes but mainly because he's tall. We fall more and more in love with Noah everyday and can't imagine our lives without him.

Here's a pic of Noah on his way to church on Sunday....(I still can't find my camera charger...Grrrr)

Recent Haps

Well, I'm a lot better than the last post. I think I may have been having a breakdown....anywho....Noah has slept pretty well since that night. Waking up once at 4am for a quick feed and then back to sleep in his own room til about 7. Hallelujah, seriously!

  • I cannot for the love of anything find our camera cord. It is driving me crazy! I know I had it at this house, so where is it? Maybe Noah ate it.....I dunno.
  • We have officially begun Basketball season. Goodbye to my husband til February. Good Times. Try outs are Friday. I already told Tyler to not tell me if they have to cut anyone. I can't handle it.
  • On Saturday night, we were laying in bed watching Law & Order (Romantic, I know), It was approximately 10:45 pm and I was really in to the was just getting to the good part. All of a sudden, I hear what sounded like about 25 shotguns go off in my living room. I curled up in the fetal position and let the s bomb fly. Don't judge, I seriously thought we were getting shot. Tyler ran outside to find a little bundle of firecrackers that some wise guy set off outside our front door......which is about 1 foot from Noah's bedroom window. NOT COOL! I won't lie, after I composed myself, I nervously laughed. Tyler said, "It's not funny", and proceeded to jump into the car and speed down the road. He followed a truck which contained a former high schooler who drove into his garage and closed it quickly. The kid denied it, but I still think it was him. Karma will catch up to him. When Tyler got home at about 11:15, I told him about my sister Mandy and I getting caught TP-ing Miss Hatch's house in high school. He informed me that it's not cool, and that I basically should be ashamed of myself. No sense of fun I guess.
  • It is so cold here. Just like that! One minute, it was 65, now it's in the 30s. BURRRRRRRRRRR! We haven't had any snow here yet, but the mountains are covered. It looks real pretty if you're inside sippin on some hot cocoa.
  • THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE! I love this time of year. I am 99.9% set on a fake tree. I love the real ones, but I don't like cleaning up the pine needles, or thinking about my house catching on fire, so fake it is I guess. I have my eyes set on a pretty pre lit one. Less work right? I am excited to begin some new traditions for our little family and to spoil the little monster (Noah) too :)
  • I got a new calling. Enrichment Chair-person. It's a little intimidating, but I really like the counselor over it, so it should be fun. We had a tri-ward enrichment on Saturday. I made a cute craft for the holidays, but they also talked about other things like traditions, cooking, and couponing...I can't lie, I just don't have the patience to clip and store hop. I do like a good deal though and let me tell you, I have found some killer ones lately. HOLLA!
Well, that's probably it for now. Until next time....

Losing my mind

When Noah was about 2 months old, he started sleeping through the night. It was awesome. He would sleep for at least 9 hours. Everyone told me we were spoiled, but I thought it was just making up for the first couple of newborn months....WELL, the sleeping through the night lasted about 2.5 months and then BAM, we were back to waking up in the middle of the night. Not once, or twice, but more like every two hours. As you can imagine, I thought my life was over...but then decided that I could handle it because all I had to do was get up, feed him and he would be back out, fast asleep. I won't lie, this was still tiring but I would take those days back now for sure.
At this point, we are still dealing with Noah waking up every two hours, but now he is wide awake, will not sleep, fights being fed and is currently blowing raspberries, parked in front of Tom and Jerry since 4am (it's now 5am). I THINK I AM GOING CRAZY. Every single night is a fight trying to get him to sleep. He is a strong little 7 month old and actually fights me. He won't go to sleep anyway until at least 11:30 pm. I asked Tyler earlier tonight if he wanted to head into bed and I would get Noah to sleep, his reply..."no, it's ok it's still pretty early." It was about 11pm.
I have read up on everything: Left him in his crib to cry it out, Done a night time routine, Tried the different techniques out there, but still nothing. My house is a mess. I haven't done laundry, unpacked from vegas (we got back a week ago), I haven't cooked a meal in I don't know how long and I basically stay in my pjs all day and lay on the couch. Tyler only gets about 5 hours of sleep each night if he's lucky, but still has to get up and work about a 12 hr day. We both look like crap and are both incredibly irritable. Seriously, the smallest thing can and does set me off in about 2 seconds. DEEP BREATHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
