It's been a while since I've WRITTEN much about Nolan. I've posted photos but we've been busy. Lately Nolan has been into new things. He's been really into the dangling toys from his play mat, he hangs onto them, tries to get them in his mouth, rolls on his side to get the ones that are not hanging but laying on the mat. He's really into putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. He can fit 8 fingers, many of his toys, straps from whatever he's sitting in, stuffed animals, burp cloths, blankets, our fingers etc. But he is unfortunately (or fortunately) no longer into the pacifier. This is great since we won't need to fight with him to be done with the pacifier except when he's screaming in public we no longer have a sure-thing fix.
He's also moved into his 3-6 month clothes. Some of his 0-3 still fit but they are getting snug - or we have trouble getting them over his big dome. This is as exciting as switching from a warm weather to cold weather wardrobe- endless possibilities! So fun since Nolan's cousins have given him tons of hand-me-downs so we have lots of old and new stuff.
He's also into songs lately! This, unfortunately for anyone who can hear, is the new thing that calms him down. There is a song in particular that he really loves and we sing him to sleep many nights. I have a terrible singing voice so I feel bad for the poor kid but he just LOVES it. So we need to learn more songs. 'I am special' is getting old.
