Rock & Roof

April 2, 2015

Noah is 21 months! It’s hard to get a good weight measurements these days, as just like with his mom, Noah’s weight tends to fluctuate significantly during the day depending on his food intake. He is approximately 29lbs.

He’s definitely grown over the last month. He was able to clear the 36 inch mark at the Austin Rodeo (something his parents were not ready for), which meant Noah was able to ride solo at the fair.

He started off nice and easy with a train ride, but you can tell by his facial expression in the picture below it was not thrilling enough.

So he quickly made his way to a faster and more exciting car ride (and of course, he picked a flying car which made mom shriek the first time every time it went up).


He quickly got the hang of cruising high in the sky, resting his arm on the car seat and waiving to mom as he spun around. After four turns, we were able to pull him away while negotiating to return soon.


The kid loves anything with a steering wheel – “Vroom! Vroom! Vroom!”

He also loves balls

and balloons. He often charms sales clerks for a free balloon whenever we go shopping.

He is big into accessories, shoes and socks (and often borrows stuff from mom without asking!)

Over the last two months, Noah’s vocabulary has quadrupled. He went from saying somewhere around 7-10 words to learning one-two words per day – apple, shoes, socks, bag, bottle, heart, bridge, park, hat, boots, truck, duck, bath, eggs, rock, roof, door, bug, plane, leaves, walk, etc. I can no longer keep track of all the words he knows. Some he says really clear and some are partial as he is learning to make different sounds. Noah is also starting to copy and mimic his parents. (Eric and I have to watch what we say and do!)

Typing and sighing just like dad.

Shopping and yoga-ing just like mom.

We made it through the Texas winter (with lows of 26 degrees this year..brrr!), skipped spring, and are now headed straight into summer weather.

After all the fun play at the park, even our ball of energy needs to take a little rest on the bench. If he is lucky some cute girl might join him (and so it starts…sigh).

Noah still favors a swing, but he enjoys slide rides and monkeying around the tree house.

Noah is big into dancing. Whether it’s with Gymbo at Gymboree, with the music table at home or the bouncy pole at the park, the boy likes to shuffle, bounce, sway and twist (that’s 3 more dance moves than his papa!)

Just recently Noah figured out what the shovels are for (they are not just to carry and pass around). Digging rocks is a lot of fun!

Noah is still big time into books (he says it so well now– “Book!”), but he is also starting to enjoy cartoons (Daniel the Tiger is his favorite, and tolerable for his parents). Every morning after breakfast we lounge around on the couch and watch an episode. Noah is too active to sit for more than 15 minutes in front of the TV (a blessing and a curse), but he still likes glancing over at the TV as he runs around the living area rearranging coasters and magazines and climbing over sofa and chairs. Some days he is pretty chill and happy, and some days he tries to figure out his boundaries and practice manipulation techniques with his fake cry, but as I remind Eric daily, most of his asks are not unreasonable so I am happy to indulge as Noah continues to explore his surroundings, learn new skills and develop independence.
