Noah - 16 Months Old


This month it feels like every little thing about him that reminded me of babyhood has now been washed away, he is certainly his own little person now. He has gained so much confidence in so many different area's lately. In social situations he is much more quicker to warm up and enjoy himself. He doesn't rely on me for half the things he once did, he's a lot less clingy. Noah is ever so cheeky, stubborn, inquisitive, funny and loving.

He has had a growth spurt lately and looks a lot taller to me. He was measured recently and was 80cm which means he is around the 50th percentile for height. I'm not sure how much he weighs but he is solid and is deceivingly heavy for such a string bean! He still wears 12-18 month clothes. 

We finally overcame our colds which lasted weeks only for them to return two weeks later. I feel like we've just been ill for the first three months of the year. We also had a trip to A&E this week as Noah was struggling to breathe. He is fine now though and I will blog about it soon.

Noah has cut some more teeth this month and now currently has 7. Top 4 front teeth and 3 at the bottom. After so many months of Noah being a gummy bear I am still getting used to his super cute toothy grin. 


Noah's appetite picked back up once he got over his cough and cold. He is back to eating everything that you put in front of him (minus jelly!) Noah is still having two bottles of milk, morning and night. He has three meals a day; breakfast, lunch and dinner. He has snacks, sometimes a supper and sometimes a cheeky bottle in the afternoon. It really depends on how much food he eats, what time his meals are or if he is having a particularly hungry day. He lets me know so I let him lead me.  

Sleep was all over the place last month and it's pretty much the same now. We began giving him a porridge supper as he was waking up at 3am hungry and it did help. He would sleep through but now with it getting lighter earlier he is waking at the crack of dawn! I need to invest in a black out blind! 

Noah usually has one long nap in the afternoon but if he wakes up particularly early in the morning then he tends to have two. He always goes down for a nap without a fuss. 

The new words you have learnt this month are; teddy, doggy, bum bum.

Here are the words he now knows; Hiya, Mama, Mum, Dada, Dad, Nanna, Nan, Grandad, dog, up, gone, Mickey, Jake, dirty and light. 

Milestones and new tricks

Jumping and running.

Understanding. He seems to understand pretty much everything that I say now and I can't help but be amazed. 

Noah can now easily point out his peggies, nose, eye's and toes as well as his head, belly, boobies and others that he learnt last month. 


Playing with his wooden toys.

His trike.

Walking. Since he learnt to walk it is all he wants to do. 

Playing fetch! I couldn't think of a better way to describe it but Noah really enjoys to find something and bring it to you. Or you can give him an item and say "Go give it to Dada" and he will walk all the way through the house to find his Dad to give him the item.

Exploring. Noah loves to go out and about.  

Playgroup. We started attending a few weeks back and he really enjoys it. I think it has really helped with his confidence too. 

Clapping. Clap with him and you will make his day! 

Teddies and Books. Two of his favourite things. 

Having his face wiped. It's so dramatic, every time!

Using his inhaler or having medicine.
Being told no!


  1. It sounds like he is doing amazingly, he has the cheekiest face I have ever seen. Love him! x

  2. Oh bless him, he's such a cutie. Ethan likes to play 'fetch' too :) x

  3. We need a blackout blind too - those curtains at bluestone made the room much darker haha. He's So gorgeous! Xx

  4. Haha, that last picture is so funny! He knows more words than Josh does at 22 months I think, lol! I need to get working on that... I found the teeth hard to get used to also, now Josh has 16! Lovely update x
