Life is precious. Our life is blessed. And we have chosen to spend it together.

11 months favorite number and perhaps my favorite age so far.  I did think we would be getting sleep at this point but what did I know.  We of course have a child who doesn't tire himself out after crying for 45 mins.  What the heck.  Poor guy.  Poor parents.  Other than that, he is pretty great.  He is crawling all over the place, standing all around the house, and eating like a champ.  He definitely has his likes and dislikes but I wouldn't want it any other way.  I love that he has personality, albeit feisty and moody.  But with that his laughter has gotten louder and his smiles bigger and toothyier.  He is hands down the most handsome kid I have ever seen ;)

mover and a shaker

It's all over...Nolan is crawling and we are chasing.  And listening, and saying noooo, and cringing.  He is pulling himself up on whatever he can and so far his bum is taking the brunt of his lack of steadiness.  Thank goodness!  We haven't had the inevitable faceplant or big crash.  I have to say it is beyond cute hearing the pitter patter of his hands and knees cruising around the corner.  You can hear him pick up speed and you know he is excited.  I am trying to keep myself from calling him over like I call the dogs but it is really hard!  This all started July 15, 2013 putting Nolan at just over 10 months.  There is it for the record books!  (i don't know how to add videos :( )
