The Latest

He makes this "fish face" all the time. Not sure where he got it from

Getting into and onto EVERYTHING!! I am pretty sure that right after this picture he fell on his face but now he's got it down. Hours of entertainment...

Teething. 3 new teeth have been giving him and me fits. This is what everyday looked like for two straight weeks. My head just hurt from all the whining. 

Helping dad with the plumbing. The kitchen is almost done. Pictures will be posted eventually

Santa Baby

Don't have time to write much, but we hung out with Santa today. Nolan was very stoic. Honestly, I was hoping for the classic "Baby wailing in Santa's lap" picture, but we couldn't get him to cry either!! :) Maybe next year.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

We were finally able to get our Christmas tree this past Friday. We usually get it the weekend after Thanksgiving, but it was raining and so cold this year! I had been itching to get it up since there are fewer weeks between the two holidays this year. The past two years we have gone out the the same tree farm to cut down the "perfect" tree. It was so fun to take Nolan this year. Thankfully he could really care less about the tree in our house and has, for the most part, left it alone. Yea!!!
My cute boys!

The tree

Dragging off his kill :)

Neither were overly excited about taking this picture :)

My parents are coming on the 24th so we needed 5 stockings. I always think that my mantle looks so lame- I need some greenery. Maybe next year.

My New Favorite Thing

Before we had Nolan I found a really cute wooden highchair on Craigslist. I was so proud. I have since come to learn that cute does not always equal practical! He would slide around in the chair, bang his head on the back of it which would often lead to crying (meal time can be stressful enough!!), and it was difficult to clean. Then I found this magical chair. The best feature is that it folds down completely and I can put it away at the end of the day. Our house is little and any space saving we can do is a total bonus. Nolan also love it and will sit in there and eat toast or other snacks while I get things done in the kitchen. Score!!

Practicing for the Heisman. No pressure!! :)

Nine Months!!

Today Nolan is nine months old. I think it's fun that he's been out of my belly for as long as he was in there (more or less). He had his check up and is weighing in at 22 lbs. (70%) and length is 30 inches (93%). He is now "crawling", able to feed himself, has three teeth- with at least three on the way, and is just an all around joy. We are so thankful to have him in our lives!

With a BAA and a MOO and a COCKADOODLEDOO...

Since this kid can't get enough of the "Barnyard Dance" he just had to be a chicken for halloween. Actually, I found this at a consignment sale months ago and have been so excited to use it. It was a fairly uneventful day. We put to costume on in the morning for pictures and visited with our neighbors. Went to a friends for lunch and to Gigi's and Papa's for dinner. He is by far the cutest chicken I have ever seen!

Sky Top

Today we went to Sky Top Orchard in the mountains of North Carolina. It's such a fun family- oriented place with hay rides, carmel apples, and a plethora of photo opportunities. The weather was perfect. Rocky was the star of the show- all the little kids wanted to pet him, and he LOVED it!! Nolan was a trooper and flirted with anyone who would make eye contact with him. I am excited to make this a annual trip- Jerel is excited about the apple cobbler.

So big!

Rocky was in love!

Yummy apple cobbler (and so easy!!)

He approves

Problem Solved

Our sock issue has been solved.  Yesterday I headed over to Target and bought the knock off Robeez for half the price. When I have looked before they never carried any that I liked. Thankfully there was one pair of cute brown giraffe's in his size. Now if I could just solve the the teething issue/overly stuffy and runny nose!! Good times.

Oh, and he is 8 months today. Happy birthday to him!!
See,  shoes!

Bonus cute picture for my mom! :)

I Wish...

I wish I could wear overalls!! Guess I will just live vicariously through Nolan.

Long time- no post

I am not sure if there hasn't been anything going on, and that explains the absence of updates, or if I have just been too busy to post. I think I am going to go with too busy, makes me feel better! :)

Nolan is now 7 months and we just had his "6 month" pictures taken. Feel free to check them out here and then type in sarahw under clients. I couldn't decide if I like color or black and white so that is why there are so many duplicates. This week he finally cut his bottom two teeth and we got the "all clear" from his doctor after his ear infection. We have dropped his last night feeding, so technically he is sleeping through the night. Technically. Needless to say, we are all doing great. Without further ado, here are the pictures.

LOVES his daddy!!

Getting breakfast with the Weathers downtown.

Almost a good family picture! Why are these things so hard to get???

Happy all the time!

Still obsessed with putting EVERYTHING in his mouth.
