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!! :)
