|This is about 20 minutes after his delivery. He hadn't even been officially cleaned off yet and he was so alert.|
|Nolan's First Birthday|
And he is so smart. He blows us away with the things he remembers and the way he solves problems. But like his momma, he gets frustrated when things don't come easy because so many things do. That's something we have been working on. Frustration is okay; giving up is not.
Right now he is playing sports: baseball, basketball, and soccer and also does Lego Club after school. He was swimming every week for a while (almost two years), but stopped that in April. He loves to play chase or tag, and he is absolutely obsessed with wresting. He also loves electronics (what kid doesn't?). And he has made a lot of friends in the "neighborhood" and recently they have just been playing in the yard after school. When his friends describe him, the word most often used is "silly." He can definitely ham it up for attention. Which is funny because both Ben and I tend to shy away from a lot of social attention. But I love that he is different from us in that way.
