  • Ice Ice Baby

    Ice Ice Baby

    Freyja is going stircrazy in the house. Needless to say, we haven’t been out for the past two days, and not just because our car is buried under a shell of ice and snow. So she hasn’t had a walk for over a week, and she’s got mad energy. She doesn’t mind the snow at…

  • 39 Weeks

    Nolan is 9 months old now, and he’s finally outgrowing most of his 3-6 mos clothes. He’s still a long, skinny boy, but he seems to be filling out a bit. In the past few weeks, he figured out how his sippy cups work and got to see and feel his first snowfall. He also…

  • Week 36

    A few new pictures of the little guy. The last one shows a pretty common expression these days: with 6 teeth visible, Nolan is constantly feeling with his fingers, rolling his tongue around and sucking in his lips to try and figure out what the heck is going on in there. 🙂

  • 8 Months

    8 Months

    I know I haven’t posted pictures in a while, but Nolan is 8 months old today, so I’ll try to play catch-up. He’s had several colds in the last month, and a persistent diaper rash, but he’s also finally growing. No signs of mobility yet, but his legs are stronger than ever, he has started…

  • 30th Week

    30th Week

    Sorry it has been so long since my last update. Nolan is 30 weeks old now, and will be 7 months old on Wednesday. I’ve got a few pics, and will try to fill you in on what he’s been up to. Nolan had his first cold this past month, and I caught one at…

  • Half-Birthday


    Nolan turned 26 weeks old yesterday, and will be 6 months by date tomorrow, so either way you cut it, he is half a year old. Not only can he sit up, he has started speaking up again, really babbling in the past few days. He finally showed off his teeth for the camera without…

  • 24th and 25th Weeks

    24th and 25th Weeks

    Sorry it has been so long since I updated… last weekend was extremely busy with a going-away party for a good friend of ours. We hosted it on Sunday afternoon, so I spent all last week cleaning and the entire weekend cooking and getting things in order. I think it was a big success, though,…

  • 23rd Week

    23rd Week

    In case you were wondering, Nolan’s eyes are still blue. 🙂 That child could win a staring contest handily. He sat there for at least a minute playing with his plastic links before toppling over sideways, but I was lucky even to get this pic because the camera’s batteries gave out and needed to be…

  • Nolan’s Bedroom

    Nolan’s Bedroom

    Our camera doesn’t allow me to take very helpful photos of a small space like a bedroom, but I know people are curious to see how it looks, so here is the best I can manage for now. We’ve still got some work to do, but Nolan has a fully functioning bedroom now, and he…

  • 22nd Week

    22nd Week

    The really big news this week was the eruption of Nolan’s very first tooth. It didn’t seem to be too painful for him, as he wasn’t extra fussy or drooly, but he is definitely chawing on his fingers and everything else he can reach (eg: my shirt, a washcloth, his toys, Freyja’s ear), so I…

  • 21st Week

    21st Week

    Check out that bed-head! You can just see Freyja in the bottom right part of the picture; she was keeping Nolan highly entertained with kisses and tail-chasing.
