What have we been up to? A lot...and nothing. The days run together and I don't know what I'm doing most of the time. But, all and all, we're happy (and healthy). Nolan is keeping us all entertained. How did we ever live without this little nugget?

He's wanted to hold hands and walk these days. He may let you carry him for a bit, but then he has to get down and be a big boy. Then he lets go of your hand and goes running down the sidewalk and skins his knee and you realize you are a terrible parent and have no Bactine or Neosporin in the house. You use hydrogen peroxide to clean the scrape and he cries and cries. Another source of tears - cutting molars.

As a result of the patio construction, we have a lot of dirt and sand and mulch and other dirty things in the back yard. He loves to play outside. And get dirty. He he's also throwing in a little dance for you (while one of the new trees casts a funny shadow on his face). Notice Greyson keeping her distance.

After filling up on a hearty sampling of dirt, he decided to climb in the chair. He climbs on everything these days. Why did I think parenting was eventually going to get easier? I guess it 20 years or so.
And this one is after church yesterday. Milestone. When we picked him up from the nursery, he was not crying. And he was playing. With another little boy. It was glorious.

Outside is good. If you want me to have sand in the table on Thurs. night, just let me know - I'll put it in the very corner of the yard & they can get as dirty as they want to! I'm glad he had a good nursery experience.
