Weight: 28lbs measured at the Doctor on 10/07/14 (2 Year Checkup) (50th %)

Height: 37.5" (>100% = Off the Charts!)

Clothes Size: 2T or 3T shirts, 2T pants

Diaper Size: 5 (Huggies Snug & Dry)

Sleeping Patterns: Nolan is still sleeping through the night (8:00PM - 7:00 or 8:00AM).  He is still taking a 1- 2 hr nap in the afternoon as well - Hope this continues for a while after the baby gets here too :).

Milestones: Teething: Nolan still has only16 teeth and his 2 year molars are working their way in as well.  Nolan still runs EVERYWHERE and can climb our stairs very well - he is also able to walk down the stairs holding the railing... with Mommy, Daddy or Aunt Mel close by.  He can climb on about anything that he wants to... he has climbed out of his crib a couple of times - but Mommy moved it away from the big bed and that has stopped... for now at least.  Nolan moved into his new big boy (Cowboy) room last month in order to get ready for baby brother.  He is still in his crib for the time being.  Eating is still going great - he has mastered using a spoon and a fork.  His favorite food right now is cantaloupe and peanut butter/jelly sandwiches and his least favorite is still green beans.  Nolan is talking more and more.  He will say and repeat (when he is in the mood) lots of words and phrases - "Mama, Daddy, Papa, Mimi, Uh-oh, I do, NO, I go, All done, Meas (Please), Tractor, Truck, Car, Two, Baby, Cheese, Teeth, Up, Down, I see you, There you Are, Gotcha! etc."  He can also make several animal sounds - Our favorites are the Cow, Pig & Chicken - just ask him!  Nolan LOVES to brush his teeth and usually acts like it is a treat to do so.  Nolan still LOVES trucks - he usually tells me "Trucks" when I ask him what he dreamed about last night.  Nolan just had a big 2 YEAR Truck Birthday party at our house at the end of September.  He was very excited to eat "Cupcake" and run around the backyard with friends.

Favorite Memory this Month:  As we are getting everything everything ready for baby brother to arrive, Nolan has been quite curious about all of the baby gear we are pulling out.  When we tell him what it is for, he will usually walk up to it, pat it and say "Baby" or give it a hug and say "Awwww".  Can't wait for our boys to meet :).

We love you sweet boy and can't believe you are already TWO!  We have so cherished these past two years and can't wait to see what the future holds for you and our family.
