He’s One!

Today is Nolan’s birthday.  I can’t believe he has been a part of our family for a year already…yet I can’t remember our family without him, either. 

He was born on Thursday, June 30th at 10:38 a.m. weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and 19.75 inches long.

He was a pretty easy going baby from the start, and he hasn’t changed much!

six months – this is my favorite picture of him.  His cheeks are rosy from teething!

When he was six months old we started calling him “The Nolanator” and the name has stuck…probably because it’s so appropriate!  He started eating solid food at four months, crawling at five months, sitting at six months, pulling up to stand at seven months, and walking at nine months.  I wasn’t really ready for any of those things…Nolan keeps me on my toes!

Nolan is now a bundle of energy & movement, with a lot of noise thrown in for good measure.  He loves the vacuum, hair dryer, or anything that makes noise.  He waits for Ben to empty his pockets after work so he can grab the cell phone.  He loves to do anything Elaine is doing – to her great dismay.  Nolan will pick up items that I ask for and bring them to me, and he blows his food before he eats it.  His one and only word is “ball” – gonna be a baseball player like his Daddy!  He can roar like a lion and he loves anything that rolls or has wheels.  At at 20 months younger, he’s barely a head shorter than his big sister, a pound lighter, and they wear the same size shoes.

He’s my little man, and I love him!
