He wore jeans, we had a short period where the weather was cool. we think he should wear a darker wash to lengthen his legs...
Nolan became a carnivoire- chicken puree- gross.
Nolan got two blisters on his feet from playing hard in the jumparoo... his first sports injury
Nolan went to the playground...
He has discovered his shadow (and is perplexed)

Too bad Dave requested not to have the 'family bed' photos put on the blog because they are cute. But not very flattering. This is an adorable photo though!

The other two disasters we do not have pictures of. Thank goodness. But the next night, while eating at a really lovely inn, the second one occurred. This one involved the grunting noises too but also involved dripping poo onto Dave's leg and the restaurant rug on the way to the bathroom to change him but instead dashing outside and stripping him of all his gross nasty clothes al fresco only to realize, once again, the diaper bag was not well stocked. So he sat in a diaper and zip up hoodie.
The third disaster occurred prior to entering the restaurant two days later. The grunting noises began in the car and changing his nasty-ness in the trunk of my car. Thank goodness we began packing the car already because ONCE AGAIN the diaper bag did not have a change of clothes. Now that Nolan is rolling, trunk changing has more of a challenge. But thankfully Dave was there to assist.
Thank goodness this kid is so cute because he is pretty disgusting. And we now have two onesies in his diaper bag and will forever...

This week Dave, Nolan and I packed up and headed off to see loads of family! We spent the first leg of our vacation on the Cape with my Mom's side of the family reunion. There were 12 from Canada and 12 from the States plus the 4 grandkiddos all gathered (yes, 28 people total). We had many firsts- meeting Grandie (Great Gram), meeting all sorts of 2nd cousins, Great Aunts and Uncles, hitting the beach, seeing the ocean and a seagull, being startled by noises, etc. Nolan was the same old ham he normally is, a happy baby with lots of smiles (and showing off his teeth!)
The second leg of the trip was to New Hampshire to see Nana and Grampa, Auntie Sus and Uncle Geoff as well as the New Hampshire Beach Crew. Dave grew up spending much of his summers in New Hampshire so many of these people are like his extended family. It was fun to show off Nolan and to bring him to the beach. He has some traditions to upkeep, like frog hunting in the brook and playing whiffle ball on the beach. This trip he sat at the waters edge and tried to eat sand. Once he got a fistfull in his mouth but otherwise was unsuccessful at those attempts. He went for a few swims and spent most of his beachtime in the water. He's really great with swimming. I also hit up the outlet stores and got some great stuff for Nolan! We haven't had to buy many clothes for him due to the outpouring of generosity via gifts and hand-me-downs. It was fun to shop for him! I can't wait for the whole family to put on our fleece pants and settle in for a football game!
I will have photos of this trip each day this week. Stay tuned!

Though he (and his parents) were even more curious how Auntie Sus could feed him so neatly. Nolan wondered if Mom and Dad could take some lessons or at least get some pointers from Auntie Sus about how to keep his face, neck, hands, arms and legs clean while eating in the chair.

He's also been flailing his left arm around. A few days ago, while playing on the mat, he grabbed his baseball rattle and started beating the blue elephant (picture Bam Bam from the Flintstones with his bat). It was pretty funny. The left arm definitely does some flailing.
