Infant eat, wake, sleep cycles are measured by the beginning of one feeding to the beginning of the next. This is not something I made-up - apparently there are "experts" who say so.
Anyway, Noah had gotten himself on the 3 hour cycle I mentioned in a previous post. In the past 48 hours he's had a few longer cycles and has seemed to have self adjusted his cycles. He ate at 8:45 PM last night, slept and didn't wake until 1:45 AM!!! Woohooo!!! Then he slept until 5:45 AM and again until 8:45 AM!!! I don't even need coffee today!!

Today we had our first post-placement visit with Betsy the social worker in town. She was here about an hour and a half, we had lunch and visited. She asked all sorts of questions about parenting and bonding and how things have changed or not. We don't have any issues with the aforementioned so all is as it should be. We'll have our final visit in the spring.

No chance of going to my Mom...she and my Dad are in Mexico celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary (Monday)!! Congratulations Mom & Dad. Mikes parents will be making their way here in just a few weeks to meet the little guy.
I find it amusing Noah always sleeps with his arms up - no matter what. We can only swaddle armpits down or he is a force to be reakoned with.

Noah has shown and taught us a love we could never have imagined. He's truly a blessing. We feel so lucky to be able to give him our love and the world.
Last night as DH was rocking him and I was cleaning out his dresser...he was born bigger than the "newborn" size but was still able to wear most of it, we discovered as DH tried to put a NB sleeper on him...they no longer fit. Anyway, at this moment we realized we both had the same ahha moment yesterday. It was pretty great.
By my very precise and scientific measurements...Noah weighs 10lbs and is 21 inches.

Noah has been on a two hour feeding schedule for the past two nights which means he's eating two additional bottles each night. Growth spurt already? All I know is when I put him in the Bjorn this morning is was very snug, I assure that doesn't have to do with my weight!
His leg rolls are no longer just skin, they are starting to fill out in a BIG way. We got him a little baby gym and he loves laying on his back and batting at the hanging bear and monkey. I'm certain he mastered the task of batting the bear to make it sing because that's what happens. He's so smart!
I have been sternly encouraged by grandma to post daily pictures. I will do my best but can't guarantee anything. You may be seeing pictures of Noah at nauseum. Then again he's so adorable who wouldn't want to see daily pictures I ask?

That is it...the rest as they say, is history. Well, actually present.
These pictures are from the past few days. Grandpa flew in on Saturday, sadly he and grandma flew home this morning. Noah gave grandma a lovely urine bath as a parting gift! Good boy!
There's a little debate amongst the family...will he be a 49er's fan or a Colts fan? Sunday's game was supposed to determine Noah's loyalties but it was just to close to call.
