Coffee & Friday Play Group

I look forward to Friday mornings when I can enjoy a nice cup of coffee with some of my girlfriends while our children can play. Here's a few snap shots from earlier today:

Run Daddy, Run!!

Eric has really had fun lately with his workouts and has run in a few races the last few Saturdays. Nolan and I are so proud and can't wait to join him when the weather is warmer. Here's a few pics from the BE5K he ran in before the Mercedes Marathon 2 weeks ago. This was his warm-up for the Adam's 10K he ran this Saturday in 58:59. I'll try to post those pics if I can locate some.

Nolan & Briley

My friend Kerry has the cutest little girl Briley...who Nolan just adores. They have Baby Praise together on Monday and are in a play group together on Friday. Everytime Nolan sees her he gets so excited and can't wait to hug her! He just loves her and it's so sweet watching them interact. Here's a few pics I snapped before Briley had a melt-down!

Mommy's new haircut

So I decided I needed a different kind of haircut...a new look for a new mom :) My hair texture changed a lot when I was pregnant and I haven't liked my hair as much. With spring around the corner I thought what the heck - it can always grow back if I don't like it. I love it though and my hair stylist said it was very posh like!

Here's a few pics of Nolan playing with our neighbor Ethan who is 3 months younger.

We finally got a new camera!

Now that we've got a new camera I can start posting more pics again. Here's a few from our weekend in Laurel and some from earlier this week. Nolan has had a slight cold with a runny nose and mild conjestion for over a week now. We haven't made it outside much with his cold and the yucky weather for a stroller or wagon ride, but I had to briefly take him out today b/c it was so beautiful outside...just a little cold & windy! Nolan also cut another bottom tooth on Sunday. He was very fussy the whole weekend, but slept soundly through the night last night...Praise God! He's also started making Ba-Ba sounds I think because we call him Bubba Bear so often! Nolan also started scooting backwards last week instead of crawling forward. He can get pretty fast so I have to constantly watch him when he's on his belly.

Happy Birthday Nonna!

My mom's 60th Birthday was yesterday and we were unable to be with her so we borrowed our neighbors camera, snapped a few shots of Nolan, and had one pic framed and mailed to her in time for Sunday.

We had a very busy weekend and threw a going away party for our good friends Lindsay and Derek. They're moving to Austin, TX next week and we're so sad :( Lindsay and I have really become good friends over the past few years and we're going to miss seeing them. We are looking forward to spending a few days in Austin this September for her brother-in-law's church plant (through our church).

My favorite Lullaby

I See the Moon
I see the moon and the moon sees me
Shining through the old oak tree
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.

It seems to me that God above,
Created you for me to love.
He picked you out from all the rest
Because he knew I loved you best.

God Bless the moon and God Bless me
And God Bless our whole family.

6 months Old

Nolan was 6 months old on Saturday and we went for his routine check-up yesterday. He weighed in at 22.8 pounds and 28 inches long. The doctor told me he's in the 99th percentile for weight...which isn't a great place to be. He told me I HAD to completely stop breastfeeding him when he wakes up during the night. He said his last feeding should accompany milk around dinner time. Since Nolan usually eats at 6pm and then goes down to sleep right after, that will be his last feeding until he wakes in the morning.

So last night he cried on and off for 3 hours because he wanted milk when he woke up at midnight. As hard as it was hearing him cry...I kept consoling him and then finally laid down with him in the guest bed. He fell fast asleep until 4:30am when I gave in and fed him. I'm one exhausted mama today and probably will be for the next few days until he stops waking up out of habit.

Nolan has the Giggles!!!

This will be my last post until we purchase a new digitial camera. Ours was either lost or stolen over the weekend and we're so bummed. This video will for sure make you laugh until I start posting again!
