Weight: 18lbs (according to our scale at home)

Height: Larger than 26" I am sure... PJ's starting to get tight!

Clothes Size: 6-12 month, 9 month

Diaper Size: 3 (Pampers Swaddlers)

Sleeping Patterns: I am don't even want to say it for fear I might jinx it... Nolan has slept through the night (7:30PM-5:30 or 6:00AM) for 5 nights in a row!!  Josh and I are stoked.  He is still sleeping on his tummy a lot.

Milestones: Teething: Two bottom teeth came in at 5 months and no new ones so far...  Nolan is still rolling all over the place and grabbing for EVERYTHING.  No drink or phone or ANYTHING else is safe :)  Eating solid foods is still coming along... Every day he typically gets 2-3 solid food meals including one of the following: oatmeal cereal (likes this much better than rice cereal), bananas, pears peas, green beans, apple sauce, avocados, and sweet potatoes.  When we first started him on solids about 6 weeks ago, he was ravenous - acting like he could never eat enough.  That has slacked off a bit... and he is starting to get pickier... the Doctor said he probably went through a growth spurt and now he is just not as hungry.  Nolan is a lot more vocal now... he likes to sit and just babble or talk to us... he definitely thinks he is having a conversation.  We are starting to really work on those syllables with him... Usually "MaMaMaMa" or "DaDaDaDa" depending on who is with him :).  He is also starting to learn lots of funny things to do with his mouth and when he learns something new, that is all we see/hear for a few days: Example - "Blowing raspberries" or "Fish Face".

Favorite Memory this Month:  The "Scootch Buggy" - This month Josh's parents and grandparents came to visit and brought along a walker for us to use.  Nolan LOVES it - He can navigate it so well, forward, backward, making 3 point turns.  His favorite thing to do is to chaise Molly around the house in that thing... Lucky for her, the floor transitions between rooms keep him from following her everywhere.  It really does seem like he is scooting along and when my friend, Liz told us about her family's term for the walker, we instantly adopted it.  Now anytime that Nolan sees it he wants in it and we all say "Time to SCOOTCH!"

Update on me staying home... A couple of the projects I was working on for my job got delayed until later in the summer and so now I will be working through the end of May instead of June.  I am ecstatic :).  Countdown until Nolan and I stay home: 4 weeks from TODAY!!

But until then... I am off to Tampa next week for my LAST furniture install with Capstone... surprisingly, it is actually bittersweet... I really have loved my job and the opportunity I have had to travel the country with them, but it is definitely time to move on and start this new chapter in my life.

Don't gooooooooo!
But, I guess Nolan is a pretty good reason to call it quits. And Molly. :)

Love the pic and we agree it is difficult getting a good pic of Nolan. He is such a joy!!!!
