Noah 18 months!
My Sweet Angel turned 18 months a couple of days ago. He is SUCH a joy and brings so much laughter and happiness to our family. His sweet, pleasing personality has me wrapped around his little fingers. He is full of hugs and cuddles and loves to be held.
We had Noah's well visit yesterday and he's only 25 pounds, which makes me laugh because Luke weighed 25 pounds at 9 months!! Noah, however, is an inch taller than Luke was at this same age. Rounding things out is his sweet little head...still the 5%. Looking at the charts, Noah is a tall, skinny boy with a sweet pea-sized head! Love, love, love my baby boy!!
Although Noah still isn't talking much, he definitely knows how to communicate. He is an extremely smart boy who understands and obeys. He uses sign language...some of his favorite signs are cracker, orange, cookie and more.
Noah is constantly running to keep up with his big brother, Luke. He doesn't play with baby or age-appropriate toys...he wants batman, trains and big boy balls. Noah is incredibly athletic. He can punt a football, kick a soccer ball and throw almost any ball like a pro!
When I think back on the last 18 months, I'm so deeply grateful for Noah's life. Starting so sick with pyloric stenosis and plagiocephally and seeing how healthy he is today is most definitely a gift from God. I can't for the life of me figure out how I got so lucky to have been given the most precious boys in the world. I am blessed beyond words to have been chosen by God to be their mother.
Happy 18 months baby boy!!!
