That night we went to Christmas on the Bayou at Cabrini. As usual, it was fun. It's a tradition I've always attended since high school (or atleast tried to attend). Angela and Ashlee were there and I also got to see a few old teachers. It's always great going back to Cabrini. I especially liked hearing the Crescent Cradle doing the living nativity scene. It was so adorable!!! I loved hearing all the little kids sing. Noah then saw Santa and he was less than impressed. Like earlier in the day he wouldn't look at the camera but just stared at Santa or the other characters. Oh well. Maybe I can get a good shot of him with Santa in Disney World.

Maybe one day he will remember that "Momma" was the one on bed rest for weeks and actually delivered him on the day that I was supposed to be rocking out to Michael Buble. I swear when Noah is older and my heart throb Michael Buble is doing the casino circuit, he owes me tickets...make that INCREDIBLE tickets.

We have let him be more "free" in our den/kitchen lately. He has suddenly discovered Uneaux's food. He actually flipped the whole bowl over on Sunday. I picked him up and went to change him and noticed he had something in his mouth...he had a piece of the dog's food! AH! I reached in and got it out...but who knows if he ate some. Either way he is fine and well.
Noah had to get 4 shots and he took them like a champ. The only problem we had was that he woke up 2x during the night, and again last night. He was doing great for a while with sleeping all night...so hopefully we can bounce back soon. I was really enjoying my Zzzz's.

Noah really enjoyed everything he tasted on Thanksgiving! He really liked the turkey, green bean casserole and sweet potatoes! Honestly...Noah likes just about anything! He wore the cutest little turkey overalls and a turkey headband...or as Clint's mom called it his "turkey ears".
This year I am so thankful for having my little man! He is so much fun and every month I say "OH I wish he stayed this age forever". I can't wait to see him grow up and learn everything.

We visited the spider monkeys, and they were my favorite. One of the monkeys was hanging by his tail on a rope and catching grapes. He never missed. There was this other monkey on the ground. He was a bit "special"...you know why he wasn't hanging from his tail. He ran back and forth waving his hands in the air for a grape hoping his friend from above would miss. Well that never happend but the trainer would throw him some and he would miss it every time. It was histerical!!
All in all it was a great day! We can't wait to go back again. It was a lot of fun.

Well starting on Sunday night when we put him down he started screaming crying, so we said...well lets give it a few minutes. Minutes went by and he still didn't settle down. This turned into a constant pick him up...put him down every 20-40 minutes till about 5AM. It was very tiring and exhausting. We tried everything from rocking him...feeding him...and NOTHING worked except for Clint and I holding him.
Clint and I both hoped that maybe it was just an off night. So, Monday night came along. SAME thing happened. We put him down fast asleep...then he started crying. SO we did the same thing but eventually caved in and just let him sleep on me most of the night in a reclining chair.
Tonight I was dreading the worst....we are both honestly exhausted and dreaded Noah's bed time. We put him down at 9 after our routine (bath, bottle, bed). The same thing happened, he screamed. I did a lot of research and read that if you let him cry it out for 15 minutes, then go in if he is still screaming and try to soothe him for a minute, then repeat. We started this at 9 and in 15 minute intervals I went in and tried to soothe him. It's so sad because as soon as I enter his room his little arms reach out for me and as soon as I pick him up, he stops crying. Well at 10, when we were at this now for an hour, I just caved in and held him. After holding him for a good ten minutes Clint then put him in bed and.....he didn't scream!!! YAY!!! Hopefully we broke this habit! It's now 12:15 and he is still asleep....shh!

He has also started to eat some of our "table food". Over the weekend Noah had some pancakes and he loved them! And for those wondering, no I didn't put syrup on them. He is doing great with picking up cheerios/puffs and bringing it to his mouth and eating it. I can't get over how much he is growing and changing everyday!!

So for Halloween we stayed home. Earlier that day Clint won a costume contest at work. Their was a cash prize. Since we had to stay in since Noah was sick we decided to get take out PF Changs. Thankfully we already had a lot of pictures of Noah in his costume from Boo at the Zoo and our pictures at Sears.

The first few weeks of Noah's life were VERY tiring. He was up every 2 hours, and the first few weeks I had an alarm set to wake him up JUST to feed him because he wasn't gaining enough. The days were long, sleep was non exsistent and I couldn't live if I didn't have a loaded caffeine drink daily from Starbucks.
