Okay, so time to play catch up. Nolan has done so much in the past two weeks, so here goes. In addition to his top left tooth (when looking at him) he now has the right tooth. He is also starting to cut the two bottom front teeth. He hasn't been too bad with the teething thing, a bit whiney but nothing more. Nolan is eating a lot of real foods now. He loves noodles and bread. He does okay with most meats but hamburger, though he loves it, gets him every time. Tonight for dinner the boy ate taco meat, tomatoes, and olives. LOL. He doesn't like yogurt and he is trying to avoid most baby food at the moment. There are days when I feel like I have to push the food down and I give up. He loves his puffies and the cheese curls. Drinking from Mommy's water bottle is also a highlight of the day.
Nolan is standing and pulling himself up so well. He sits so much better and he is actually starting to climb... God help me. While vacuuming today, I looked behind me and he was two steps up. I had to do a double take since it was the first time he attempted to get up the steps. He still loves the dogs and he enjoys it when Cody tries to bite him. Yes, my son is nuts!
We had crabs over the weekend with Gramps. Nolan sat on the floor with the crabs and got a kick out of them. Too funny. We had a few pool days in the past two weeks, lots of time with the kids that I watch, and time with a few other kids too. I found out a local consignment store is closing and I went to meet with the owner to see about purchasing it. After considering it long and hard, I decided not to. I have however, start a FB page to see if it takes off. If so, a store front is the next step.
We are just a month away from Nolan's first birthday and I have given the theme a lot of thought. I am still trying to find someone to make the perfect cake, but I am not having any luck. Mostly everything else is planned, just need to figure out the food.
Just today Nolan started clapping. OMG, it is so cute. I looked down at him at one point today and he was doing it. I don't think he realized how I would react. I did the whole "yay" thing and he now expects the "yay" each time he does it. I swear, the baby I once knew is now becoming a toddler. Sniffle sniffle...
Well, here a pictures from the last two weeks:
