Getting to know our readers' babies ...

Who: Three-month-old Noah Karter, turbosmommy's son. He had a somewhat bumpy start. He was hospitalized at only four days old for RSV, but is doing much better now.


How long does he sleep at night? He normally sleeps from about 10 p.m. to about 3 or 4 a.m. then eats and goes back to sleep till about 9 a.m. I'm pretty lucky to have two kids that are late wakers.

What makes him smile? He hardly smiles or laughs. He has a very serious personality, which can be a bit frustrating at times. I just want to capture one smile on camera!

How did you choose his name? My husband chose the first name via googling while I was in labor. I chose the middle name Karter; I heard it one day, and it just stuck on me. Oh and we chose to spell Karter with a K because our first son's middle initial is K and we wanted the names to have something in common.

Any siblings? Ethan Kaden, who will turn 3 in October.

What's Noah's latest milestone? Noah has mastered holding up his head without support, and he can sit unsupported for about 20 seconds before toppling over.

What's his fussiest time of day? He gets fussy around 2 p.m. every day. For some reason, he always fights his sleep at that time every day, but once he gives in he will sleep for about two hours and wake up a much happier baby.

What will he do for a career? I'm not too sure yet, hopefully something that he loves, and benefits humanity. :)
