1 month old

William turned 1 month old today! Can't believe how quickly the last few weeks have flown by. We are very blessed with such a good baby :) William is on a 3- 3.5 hour schedule during the day and usually goes down at 9:30pm and will sleep till 2:30 or 4am. He's still not very consistent with his nights and sometimes he does great...other times he's up and hungry! The last few days he has really starting smiling a lot and making sweet sounds. I often get told by people everywhere I go that he looks like me. What do you think?

My Brother

Nolan has really started to adjust having a baby brother around all the time! At first I think Nolan wasn't sure what was going on and didn't like the attention being shifted, but over the past 3 weeks, he has really wanted to be where the baby is and has started interacting with him a lot more. It is so sweet to watch how Nolan has gone from only child to sweet Big Brother. Here's a few pics we've snapped of the two of them:

Nolan's 2nd Birthday Party

We celebrated Nolan's birthday a week later with his friends b/c we were not sure when baby William was going to arrive! We had a fish theme party at the Ocean Springs Spray Park and celebrated Nolan's 2nd birthday with close family and friends. Nolan had a blast running back and forth from the water to the playground and barely sat still to eat cake and open presents. We had to keep chasing after him! Nolan really enjoyed the afternoon playing with his friends and it was nice for Eric and I to get out and socialize, even though William was just 2 weeks old!

Happy 2nd Birthday Nolan!

We celebrated Nolan's 2nd Birthday today with our family and are looking forward to his birthday party with friends this Saturday. Eric and I bought Nolan his first Thomas the Train set which was a big hit! Nolan just loves trains so we thought this would make the perfect gift, and we were right! We enjoyed lunch at The Dock (Nolan's favorite restaurant here b/c he can run around and play and go look at the boats) and we got him a big chocolate chip cookie cake that he actually got to blow out the candles on this year! We had a great time visiting with family and can't believe how much our little boy has grown-up. He's still as sweet as can be and full of all that toddler energy!
