Nolan at 10 Months


Weight: (Need to Measure)

Height: (Need to Measure)

Clothes Size: 12-18 month

Diaper Size: 3 (Pampers Swaddlers) - Will be switching to size 4 with the next box.

Sleeping Patterns: Nolan is sleeping through the night (8:00PM - 6:00 or 6:30AM) consistently now... he still wakes up occasionally in the middle of the night due to teething.  He is taking consistent naps now too - one in the morning for about 1-1.5 hours and one in the afternoon for about 1.5-2 hours.

Milestones: Teething: We now officially have 8, almost 9 teeth and will soon have 10 - this month has been rough as far as teething, but Nolan seems to be feeling much better now..  Nolan is crawling and pulling up EVERYWHERE.  His favorite spot to pull up now is on the media stand in the den... he loves to turn the Xbox on and off since it lights up and makes a cool sound.   Eating solid foods is still going great.  He can now pick up several foods to feed himself but likes cheerios the best.  (We are currently working on keeping the food on the tray instead of throwing it on the floor.)  Most of the time, he still prefers to be spoon fed.  Nolan is very vocal and can now say "Dada", "Mama" & the beginnings of "Uh-Oh".  Nolan loves to clap and will start to clap along with me to "Patty Cake."  He can now wave "Hello" and "Goodbye" and loves to wave at anyone who will wave back.  Nolan also loves to give us kisses on the cheek.

Favorite Memory this Month:  Watching Nolan and Josh interact.  Nolan absolutely loves his Daddy and is so excited everyday when he gets home.  He is now used to the routine/time that Josh gets home every day and starts to look for him when it is time.  Josh is an amazing Daddy and loves to make Noly laugh.  It melts my heart.

We have a busy couple of months coming up - I am actually going down to Tuscaloosa next week for some contract work (furniture install) for my old company... Josh's mom is coming to visit and watch Nolan during the day.  We then have a trip to Chicago planned to see the Adams', Labor Day weekend, Josh's parents coming to visit at the beginning of September, a trip to Asheville, a trip to Jax at the beginning of October for a wedding (that Josh is officiating), Nolan's first birthday party (which I have started planning) and Josh and I are planning a quick trip to Savannah for our anniversary.  All of this happening this end of summer/fall and not to mention finishing rebuilding the deck and completing our dining room/living room updates and we should be quite busy.  Oh yeah, and of course there is football :).  Hopefully we will get some interesting blog posts coming up.
