Noah - 17 Months Old

I said it last month and I will say it again, there's no denying he's a toddler anymore. Wow, he really is his own little person now and boy don't I know it. He's such a funny little boy and he will do anything to make you laugh, it's a quality that I adore in him. He certainly knows his own mind and knows what he wants and how to get it. He also knows Mummy doesn't let him get his own way all the time and will often go and work on Daddy instead, monkey! He's got heaps loads of personality and he is such a little individual, I love him. 

He's seriously shot up this month, it's crazy. People are always commenting on how tall he is but I don't think he is? He is still wearing 12-18 month clothes and they have plenty of room. Surely if he was big he would be in the next size up? 

Noah had gastroenteritis a few weeks back which wasn't pleasant. He was off his food, had a runny bottom and was being sick in the night. It lasted about a week but thankfully he's been fine ever since.
On the teething front he has been great especially how he is cutting three molars at the same time! Counting the molars he now has 10 teeth, we are getting there! 

At the moment we can't seem to fill him up. He has three meals a day with numerous snacks throughout the day, a bottle in the morning and a bottle at night. He drinks lots of water too. He pretty much eats anything you place in front of him bar jelly and cereal. I think he must be going through yet another growth spurt as he is like a bottomless pit.

We've had one or two rough nights when Noah hasn't been feeling well but on a whole he has been great. He usually sleeps for at least 12 hours a night and has a two hour nap in the afternoon. At the moment he loves his sleep and food, he certainly takes after his Mummy! 

Noah knows around 20 words now but will only say them when he wants to. He's always been vocal but this month he has been trying to converse so much more and will babble away in baby language. I am always trying to encourage more words and we are using flashcards at the moment just to get him used to the sight of them. 

He learnt to say Sadie this month which has pleased his Auntie so much!

He likes to stomp his feet and do a little jig to make us all laugh.

He has had a growth spurt and can now reach on top of the kitchen work surface!
