Noah at 15 Months Old

Dear Noah,

You are now 15 months old and, as sad as it is to admit it, you are no longer a baby - every single day you grow and change and become more and more like a little boy, and leave that babyness behind you.

I wish you'd slow down a little sometimes - you seem to think you're so much older than you actually are and are in such a hurry to do all of the things that your big brother can do, but I'd love to keep you as my little baby for a little longer!

Having said that, I have to admit - the stage you're at now is my favourite!! I loved this age with Tyne and I'm loving it all over again with you - everything is new and exciting to you, your personality is coming out so much and you are just so much FUN!

You're wearing 12-18 month clothing which has PLENTY of room left so no sign of moving into bigger sizes yet and you're in size 5 nappies.

Your hair is getting SO long at the back but still so short and whispy on top so I can't do anything at all with it at the moment, it's at that "scruffy" stage all babies seem to go through around now! The colour is baffling me though - the top is sometimes an auburn colour and sometimes very red but the back has SO MANY different colours through it - you have a stripe through the middle of pure white like Tyne's hair colour, and the rest has all sorts of different high and low lights!! I have no idea what colour its going to end up...but I sort of hope that white stripe disappears as it looks quite odd! Its a quirk though, right?!

Your Personality

You are VERY mischievous - I mentioned in your 1 year update that we call you Danger Baby and we still do, we've fitted stairgates everywhere now to contain you but you take them as a challenge and try your best to scale them anyway! Lately you've been desperately trying to climb out of your cot and it's quite scary how close you come to succeeding!!!

You have the most cheeky, impish little grin I've ever seen and you love to pull your "Funny face" at everybody, pull tongues and generally be really really cheeky!

You follow your big brother around constantly, trying to play with him and you LOVE to wrestle with him by basically throwing yourself on top of him and laughing your head off as he tries to escape from you!

You are very much the opposite with your little brother though - you're so gentle and attentive with him, always going to find his dummy when he cries or trying to give him a cuddle and say "aaaah baba".

This month you went on your first fairground ride - just a merry go round in a little car with your big cousin Amelie but you LOVED it and were so excited to be part of the big kid crowd on the rides!!!


You LOVE your food at the moment and there's very little that you won't eat - although you have recently decided that you hate eggs! (Can't blame you, I hate them too!) 

Your favourite things to eat are blueberries, strawberries, watermelon, breadsticks, cheese, mummys homemade macaroni cheese, mummys baked risotto and pizza muffins! You also love ANYTHING thats on mummys plate - that is always the best food!!

You are doing amazingly well at feeding yourself - you insist on having a fork like Tyne does and you actually use it better than him - you are fiercely independent.


You are still the best sleeper of all of the boys, and are by far the "easiest" one when it comes to bedtime and naps.

You did refuse a nap for the first time a few weeks ago but thankfully it was a one off! Every day you have a nap after lunch which usually lasts around 2 hours.

You go to bed at 7.30 every evening, and don't make any fuss - you have a 9oz bottle of warm milk but lately you've only been drinking about a quarter of it, you have a little cuddle and sometimes a little story and then you are popped into your cot with your sleep sheep on and left alone - and you go off to sleep with no troubles at all.

You usually sleep straight through until around 8am with no problems at all (I wish your big brother did!)

Things You Do

You HATE having your nappy changed and you thrash around and SCREAM at the top of your lungs whenever we have to do it...which is fun! Much the same when its time to get out of the bath and get dried and dressed!

You are saying more and more little words all the time - a few nights ago your teeth were bothering you at night so I brought you downstairs for some rare one-on-one time, and as you cuddled in next to me to watch In The Night Garden you started pointing at photos and reeling off everybodys names...

You said, as clear as day, "Mumma! Dad-dad! Ty. Say. Nan-nan. Ga-ga"...I was shocked as I had NO idea you could say all of those names so well! You also said your own name perfectly!

Another new word to your vocabulary is "OUT!" which is SHOUTED at me as soon as you've finished your dinner and you want out of your booster yell at the top of your lungs "MUMMA! OUT! OUT! MUMMA OUT!" haven't been blessed with patience!

You can also say "Bath" and "Car" perfectly clearly.

And finally, the biggest change has been that - after WEEKS of walking holding our fingers (just one finger...meaning you were perfectly capable of doing it alone but were just afraid to!) - last month you took your first steps alone!!

You were SO proud of yourself!

You're walking everywhere now and hardly ever crawl anymore, you love trying to chase after your big brother.

Well that's all for now Noo-Noo - I can't wait to see how much you've changed by your 18 month update!
We love you so much.

Lots Of Love,

Mummy xxx
