Last week Nolan was a football player, this week he’s a race car driver. Can you try guessing what next week and the rest of October will look like as far as “costumes” will go? I have to note that 95% of Nolan’s wardrobe was handed down to him–including this Ferrari jumpsuit he’s sporting. We haven’t had to buy much clothing for him other than socks, bibs and gloves. So blessed to have so many sources for hand me downs. It truly helps on cost savings since he grows so fast and only wears items less than a handful of times before we size up again.
Two things to note in his development this week:
1 – He’s found that his hands are great tools and tries to grab anything that he thinks is within reach. It’s just so awesome to see the progression in his learning of the human body and mind. I didn’t think I could be so excited over a child grabbing a toy for the first time. First time mommy, eh?
2 – Discovered a whole new octave in his voice: screaming just because I can and not because I’m hungry or sleepy. Whenever that happens Rob and I just stare at him in amazement and laugh.
What’s up with his skin condition? Still the same if not a little worse. We’re going in for his 4 month shots this Friday so he’ll have a thorough check-up with the pediatrician to see if there is anything else we can do to help it get better. What does that mean? Another blog post of course!! One of those weeks where its a weekly and monthly milestone. Stay tuned then for another fun-filled blog in a few days!!
His crazy hair with this outfit reminds me of a daredevil.
I love it when he smiles and ends up inadvertently winking at me.
Couple of photos from my phone. He enjoys playtime in his jungle gym and grabs everything in site. He also loves to match with Daddy.
Sharing a video of Nolan laughing for over 30 seconds straight. It was more like a minute but I didn’t capture the entire thing on camera. His laughter truly makes all my worries and sorrows disappear. I wish I could bottle it up and blast it wherever I go; spreading the joy that I know of as my greatest achievement, Nolan.
