We didn’t do Halloween costumes or trick-or-treating this year at Halloween, but with several pie pumpkins in the house, I decided to carve one into a jack-o-lantern. I tried to get Nolan’s help with the insides of the pumpkin, but he wasn’t interested in touching it.
A few snapshots from the past month, with succinct captions (the better to post this quickly and head to bed!). Another day, another something to get into (don’t worry, it was clean!) Hanging out; I loved the way the light was hitting him (that T-shirt is from his preschool) Nap-time snuck up on him mid-play… Continue reading Snapshots, Month 29
Here he was very busily carrying the legos onto sofa one by one and arranging them on the windowsill in a row. When all the blocks were up, he proceeded to toss them all back onto the floor and do it all over again. Whatever uses up that energy, right? He has been playing with… Continue reading Wild Thing
Some photos of our busy boy from the past month or so! Nolan loves his stroller to death. We leave it out all the time because he uses it like a chair to hang out in.

As you can see from the video Jeremy just posted, Nolan can even climb into his crib now, so nothing is out of bounds for his strong arms and legs. Yes, he can now climb onto the seat of our Bowflex without… Continue reading More Playing Hard and Sleeping Hard
I showed Nolan that he could put his favorite monkey and blankie into this bag to carry around, and he promptly did so, then climbed in himself. In the past two days, Nolan has been climbing onto the back of the sofa pretty frequently. All the better to see the dog running around in the… Continue reading Baby Billy Goat
We all really liked the cake. Jeremy took some video of the carnage; maybe he’ll post it here later. This little monkey rug was part of his birthday package from Grammy Rita and Grandpa Nelson. As soon as I set it on the ground, Nolan promptly sat down on it and rolled all around. Guess… Continue reading The Cake Hunter
