Noah is definately an early bird. However, this week he's been getting up even earlier than normal. Prior to this week he was going to bed at 8 p.m. and waking up around 6 or 6:30 a.m., some days as late as 7:00. He decided to change things up for Justin and I this week. He's been getting up to eat around 3 a.m. and has been waking up to start the day around 5 a.m. every morning this week. He's not crying or upset, he's just playing- happy as can be. Since he's still sleeping in our room, we try to doze a little but aren't really able to sleep with the party that's going on in the cradle. So, inevitably we both get up. Justin jumps in the shower and I take little "Mr. Smiley Pants" downstairs to play in his swing while I eat breakfast and get everything ready to go for the day. All of these pictures were taken before 6:00 a.m. this morning!
I couldn't resist, I had to post this picture. His facial expression is so funny.
It's amazing how true the old saying is about babies changing everyday. He's reaching for everything, including the camera! (See above pic.) Noah's trick of the day is smacking his lips, making a loud popping sound. Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Tom left to go to a movie when we pick Noah up so we didn't have much of a chance to talk with them about his day. Kathy called tonight when they got home and said that he had been popping his lips all day. He sure has perfected that sound! You can also tell from his shirt that he's been drooling a lot, a little too early to start working on a tooth, but you never know!
He's been rolling at home for Justin and I from his back to his tummy. He's yet to do it at Grandma and Grandpa's, but I bet by the time we go back to school on Tuesday he'll be ready to perform for them!!
