Such a hungry boy!

Nolan has really gotten pretty active the last few weeks. I told Eric the other day that he's such a boy - trying to tear up his exersaucer by jumping and banging on it as loud as he can! He's really a strong boy and his new favorite thing is to stand on your lap and jump. He gets such a kick out of this. Nolan has also been teething quite a bit and keeping Eric and I awake during the wee hours of the morning. He's gotten into this pattern where he falls asleep in his crib at 7pm. Wakes up around 11:30pm for another feeding, then wakes again around 3am - wide awake laughing and cooing...ready to play! After about an hour of calming him down, which usually results in nursing him back to sleep, he's awake again at 6:30am - hungry again.

Nolan has exhausted me with his growing appetite. He still nurses at least 6 times a day and is also eating a jar of fruit, 1 vegetable, and either oatmeal or rice cereal. You would think all this food would tie him over to sleep through the night, but it's not working. It's always something, either his teeth are hurting, he's gassy with pain, or he's hungry. I just have to keep a good sense of humor about it all because he's always smiling and it makes me smile no matter how tired I am.

I pray and pray over him everyday to sleep soundly at night, but he still wakes every few hours. If anyone has any advice....please share!

I love when Mommy & Daddy take me for a wagon ride!

I love playing the piano on my musical table that Nonna gave me

This is my new thing - chewing on my thumb all the time

All this playing wore me out Mommy!

hey girl - I was just thinking about you this morning and how I feel like I haven't seen ya'll in months!! Just wanted you to know I've been keeping up with ya'll through the blog - I can't believe how big Nolan has gotten! It feels like just yesterday he and James were newborns and we were starting the mommy & me group!
