Sunday evening after Nolan's baptism we were greeted with the beginning of Hurricane Sandy. We did not go to work on Monday or Tuesday. We were lucky and did not lose power. Although under terrible circumstances, it was nice to have a few days off of work and trapped inside spending time with the little stinker!
Indoor fun during the hurricane~Nolie is having fun in his new jumper from Aunt Kim, Uncle Brent and Colby! He is also being a good little helper and helping mommy and daddy with the laundry! :)
Since we were trapped indoors we figured it would be a good time to start Nolan on rice cereal, as directed to do so by his pediatrician. Day 1 he did not get too much in his mouth. The feeding resulted in crying out of frustration. He is slowly getting a hang of it now! His puffy little chipmunk cheeks are too cute when he is eating!
10/29/12 First rice cereal...
This week was also Halloween. Nolan was a pumpkin because I don't think there will ever be a Halloween where he will ask to be a pumpkin. I decided to get it out of the way this year. At first he did not like his costume, but once he realized that he was not coming out of it anytime soon he started to enjoy it. I wish I would have gotten a picture of Nolan with our neighbors little girl, Olivia. She was a crab and it was absolutely adorable. Her mommy made the costume and did a great job. I really wish I had taken a picture because it was too cute!
So happy! Nolan is cheesing with his fingerprint and footprint pumpkin. Idea was found on pinterest, of course!
We got Nolan's first project from Ms. Ginnie this week. I am in love with it, my little guy's handprint on a baseball. Ms Ginnie found the idea on pinterest. Seriously, who doesn't love pinterest??? I am stealing a baseball case from Ryan and putting the ball on display in Nol Nol's nursery. Ryan and I think that the ball turned out perfectly.
Yes, Nolie has a big hand and his pinky and thumb are on the seams of the baseball. :)
And, I finally have a picture of Nol with Ms. Ginnie! Nolan was showing off his new skills of sitting like a big boy this past week. He is growing up so fast! Speaking of growing up fast, he turned 5 months old on Thursday. Make sure to check the Nolan Month by Month tab to see his 5 month pictures! :) Where has the time gone? He is getting so big!
Meet Ms. Ginnie!
Look how well Nolie sits up!
Ms. Ginnie sent me this picture on Halloween. I really don't think it gets any cuter than this!
This past week has not gone well for sleep at all. Either Nol is teething or having a growth spurt. Either way, I am an exhausted mama who is hoping for a calm evening and a good nights sleep. We keep checking Nolan's gums but really can't tell if he is teething. It's so sad to see him get so miserable. Here are a few more pictures I thought were cute!
Getting ready to visit daddy at the golf course. I thought the hat was appropriate...Ryan told me to take it off of him right when we got there. LOL. Ryan looking pretty sleepy with Nolan awhile at work!
Saturday evening we went for a walk around the mall. Um..Santa already?? I guess it is November, but still we were shocked to see him and hear the Christmas music playing. Oh well, I am excited for the holidays!!! Nolan's first time seeing Santa :)
My boys <3
New toy! Haha, Nolan and Chuggins are having a stare down. Nolan is looking at him saying my toy, not yours! Chuggins is thinking that he is going to steal one of the balls (yea, he did too)!
