Noah's 9 Month Update

I can't believe Noah has been here with us longer than he was in my belly! This last 9 months of being a mama has gone by so much more quickly (and been a lot more fun...and more challenging) than my pregnancy. So much has happened with him this month!

Right now he's wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

This month he's started to show a strong preference to me over anyone else, even Josh.

He has this super cheese ball smile that I can't manage to get on camera.

He slept through the night for 3 or 4 nights a couple of weeks ago and has totally regressed since then, and now wakes up 2-3 times a night and has a really hard time falling back to sleep. It's seriously harder than when he was a newborn. He just got his two bottom teeth about two weeks ago so I don't think that he's teething.
He's become a tummy sleeper.
A few weeks ago he started scooting backward and moving around in a circle while on his belly. He can also move around in a circle while he's sitting on his bum. The last few days he's started rocking back and forth while on his knees, so I think crawling is right around the corner. His favorite thing to roll or scoot to are power cords...power cords that are plugged in. I've run across the room and ripped one out of his hands in a panic more than once. He's such a curious little guy.
He has become terrified of so many different noises. The washing machine, the bath water running, blenders, blow dryers, and hand dryers (you should have seen me trying to calm him down by singing the ABC's while simultaneously talking on the phone and changing his diaper in the Target bathroom...I looked like a nut). He also screams dramatically while being dressed. Yeesh. This boy has become way more opinionated lately.

He's also been imitating what we do, like dancing, putting a toy in a certain place, etc.

We took Noah to the zoo for the first time this month. He was most into the deer.
He's a champ with solids and the only thing he really hates in zucchini, unless I mix it with something else. A list of foods he's eaten:
Fruits- Apples, bananas, prunes, peaches, pears, blueberries, mango and a smidge of apple juice
Veggies-Carrots, string beans, broccoli, spinach, pumpkin, peas, sweet potato, avocado and corn
Other- Oat, rice and teething wafers
