Nolan is growing up so fast but I guess he has to since he’ll be a big brother in just 2 short months. He’s learned so much in the last 6 months that I can’t even imagine what he’ll learn in the next 6 to come. I’m kind of sad that once baby #2 is here, I won’t be able to give him as much attention as I have in the last 18 months. At least he even got that much attention since any other siblings will not get the same amount of attention that he’s received. It will be divided between him and his siblings but I’m sure our love for our children will always be equal. Nolan’s pediatrician kind of scared me today saying having a 2nd child isn’t twice as much work but more like 3x! I guess we’re in for a big life changer real soon; too late, no looking back now.

I made a quick treat of a string of Snap Chats I saved in the last 6 months of Nolan doing “Noly” things. Be careful with the volume since one video could be louder than the next.
And lastly is a quick recap in photos of some of the things he’s done in the last 6 months.
