Random Nolan Pictures

Above is the first time Nolan fell asleep while playing...Below is Nolan's first donut, the kid kept looking at me and Greg with a glare daring us to take it away from him. (I should note that most parents document first steps, first tooth, and such...we document first foods - french fries for Wesley, corn dogs for Max, and now a donut for Nolan).

Who is quicker...Daddy or Nolan - Well in this case Nolan, Daddy needed to be better prepared to get the movie in and the doors closed because this kid is super fast. Below he is playing in his toy basket...with a wet shirt - Greg calls Nolan a saint bernard puppy because he drools a ton.

Hanging out in his crib...leg kicked out, toy and bottle in hand. He is such a laid back easy going baby...can the next one be so easy to get along with (well most of the time)?

One Big Celebration!

Since both of the older boys have birthdays so close to major holidays...and so close together, I decided that throwing one big party (Done this year on Sunday 12/4) would be better then trying to smash in two parties among Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nolan has a birthday right after Wesley's so next year he will get included in the big party. My mom made the for Max and blue for Wesley. The trains on top are a new Hot Wheel train and the boys love fact they got some birthday money and used it to buy additional trains - they all will hook together.

After cake we opened presents...emergency vehicles from Grandma and Grandpa Weyerman for Wesley. And a scooter (Daddy said Mommy couldn't buy one for the kids...he didn't say Grandma and Grandpa Alton couldn't...see Mommy can be sneaky).
Max loves flashlights...Grandma and Grandpa Weyerman got him a cool LED flashlight.
Aunt Kristie got the boys some fun new jammies (Wesley needs these since he won't stop growing)

And then came the big black bags with Mommy and Daddy's presents...hoppity balls that look like horses. The boys LOVE these and have happily bounced all week now. Sometimes they just sit and bounce in place while watching TV, other times they bounce up and down the hallway...a much needed activity since getting outside is getting harder with this crazy cold that I don't miss each winter.

Max Had a Birthday, Shout Hurray!

Max turned the big 3 years old on 11-13-11. We started the celebration be going out to dinner as a family on Friday and Max got to go to Target and pick out a new toy (he choose a fire engine that makes all sorts of noise...he loves it and I love it as long as it stays in his bedroom far away from me).
On Sunday, his actual birthday, we went out to Middleton to visit Greg's parents. I gave Max the choice between cake and rice crispy you can see he choose rice crispy treats. I dressed them up with food coloring and sprinkles.
Max kept trying to blow out the candles from where he was sitting...finally, Grandpa gave him and hand at getting close enough to actually blow them out. Max also sings along when you sing him "Happy Birthday" I find that very cute.
In a couple weeks we will have a big party with all the family and some friends to celebrate both Max and Wesley's birthdays...I find it easier with both boys having birthdays in the midst of major holidays to have one big party (next year Nolan will be included but a first birthday is special and will get a special celebration).

Halloween was pretty fun this year. The older boys are really getting the concept of candy handed out freely and all because they dressed up. The week before we carved pumpkins and enjoyed donuts and cider. Then I got to listen to the boys ask for a week when they got to go trick or treating. Friday we went to a trunk or treat in my Aunt Kristie's ward and the boys had a blast, setting off more questions on when they could go again. Finally Monday came and we dressed up and headed out around my parent's neighborhood with Gideon, Jeremiah, Charles, Sara, and Trish in tow. It was a blast and I now Wesley wants to dye Easter eggs (because Easter also equals candy.)

Nolan...Nearly Nine Months Old

I can not believe that he will be nine months old in just a few short days. Time flies when you are having fun (and morning/all day sickness)...His new trick is trying to climb, especially trying to climb up the stair to get to his big brothers. Which is all fine and good until he tips over/tries to get down again...we haven't had much success there yet. My little bit is growing up and isn't such a little bit anymore.

My New...Addiction/Love/Obsession

I have fallen into a love/hate relationship with the website Pinterest - I find that it is great for organizing all of those things (recipes, crafts, sewing projects, etc.) that I have been bookmarking forever. I love that I can be more organized in my search for new ideas but the site is also full of great ideas. And I can loose track of time while in the pursuit of new pins. I think for now I will just focus on the part where I am getting more organized and the part where I stop bookmarking new ideas on Greg's computer (something he hates).

For those that are also enjoying {loosing track of time} pinning...we may need to start a support group - Pinterest Anonymous anyone?
