Twenty-six weeks

Sniffle, sniffle... this was me laying in bed the other night as I looked at how my tiny little baby is growing up so fast.  I just can't believe that he is already almost 6 months old. 

He has conquered rolling over, to the point that he can maneuver across the living room floor.  He can turn himself, as needed, to get to his toys.  It will only be a matter of time until he is crawling.  He still loves holding onto something while he eats or sleeps, usually it's my shirt.  He loves playing with the dogs and can even occupy himself while watching Cody for several minutes.  He watches TV and his favorite shows are Backyardigans, Yo Gabba Gabba, and Wonder Pets. 

This week Nolan has really started blowing/spitting.  Nothing like feeding your child and having them blow/spit everything in their mouth back at you.  I honestly think he does it like he is talking, but I could be so wrong.  He has come to understand that when he is done with something he just needs to start screeching and Mom will come to the rescue.  Yes, so this means that there is a lot of screeching that goes on in our house. 

We had to get the 6-9 month clothing out of the attic this week, not because Nolan needs them for the standard clothing, but because he needs the stretch suits to sleep in.  The poor kiddo has been wearing the 3-6 month sleepers and he can barley stretch his legs out.  Oh, and diapers, yea we had to move up a size in them too.  I thought it was just the Huggies and Luvs cause they are a bit smaller, but  no, the Pampers size 2's are too small too.  So my little tiny butt baby is now in a size 3 diaper. 

This week Nolan ate sweet potatoes (which is liked) and squash (which he LOVED).  Nolan had a minor cold this week which started with him gagging on the mucus resulting in throw up in bed, on the chair, and on the living room carpet.  Fun! 

We didn't really do much outside of the house this week, but in the house we cleaned, organized, and finished the pantry closet.  The first snowfall of 2012 took place on Friday night into Saturday morning.  We were supposed to have Hayley's birthday at the zoo, but it was cancelled due to the weather.  Upon waking up on Saturday, there was a blanket of about 2-3 inches of snow.  We wanted to take Nolan out to get a picture in it, but with him being sick and how cold it was it didn't make much sense to me. 

Here are some pictures from the week:
"So that's how this works."

"You got me with Flaps again "
The best way to watch television... upside down.  Not sure why he wanted to do this, but he had to be upside down.

Watching TV... of course with Flaps near his side

"Say what?!"

"Just take the picture so I can continue playing"

Lounging with Mommy

"See, aren't these socks awesome?"

"Yes, I did finally make it over to this dog toy that you told me not to touch."


"Don't worry Mom, I have it under control."
