And also my sunglasses. But he always has this expression on his face when the sunglasses are on, almost as though he needs to concentrate on keeping the glasses on his face.
After a few skinned knees, lots of fried fish and ice cream, this kiddo was thrilled to be home and back with his toys and stuff. That vacationing is fun but exhausting.

On Saturday a neighboring town had a Touch-A-Truck event which we thought would be fun to bring Nolan to since he loves his trucks. The kid was pretty scared and I'm not surprised. There were a lot of kids there, live music and lots of honking from all these giant trucks. There were diggers and bull dozers, police cars and fire truck (spraying water for kids to play in) and some mowers and tractors. It was a really great event, well done. Nolan is a bit young for it but I thought he might enjoy it. Maybe next year.
He DID enjoy playing with the balloon we got him though. This is actually the third balloon we got that day- one escaped the ribbon, one popped in Nolan's arms and this one came home with us. He played like a crazy guy with this balloon for a good amount of time.
What a great way to begin a vacation. And we didn't even 'go' anywhere yet.

I guess the beach really wore Nolan out. After a quick trip back to the hotel for a diaper and some wipes I came upon this scene. How precious is this? Nolan was just wiped out. After just 30 minutes of being at the beach! This was SO shocking to us, knowing this kid doesn't want to miss out on anything. He must have been really zonked.

Maybe this should be his new mode of transportation since his legs and navigation seem to be failing him. And he looks awfully cute in there.

he has also created new sign language for cup- slurping as if he was drinking through a straw

Nolan didn't seem to get the humor of the sleeveless shirt but i sure did. And, the logo on this shirt says 'Big Guy' and is a baleen whale. So funny. Hats off to those who make funny kids clothes.

What do you think? Is it time to cut this hair or let him showcase the baby mullet for a few more months?

Nolan has two freckles so far. One near his mouth and the other on his leg. He's getting very good at pointing to his body parts and apparently he knows how to say 'there' or at least that is what it sounds like he is saying in this video.
He really loves pointing (hard) to our eyes which can be difficult. He loves my eyelashes and the inside of my nose...

So after putting sunscreen on him and me I'm already sweating since I have to chase him around the house to get it all rubbed in (hint, close the door to a room so he can't run as far). Then he wants to climb on sweaty/sunscreen sticky me and hold my sweaty hand and play with my sweaty hair.
So today we set up the pool. This pool is double the size of last years pool (oops: I think we'll try to find a smaller pool too).
Even though it's hot and sticky, I wouldn't trade these days away for the world. Plus, since the pool is much bigger (6 feet around and 1 foot deep) I plan on swimming today too!
Or I can always fill the ice tub up with ice water to cool the kiddo off too.

I guess he thought his truck needed a bath. Or that it was holding onto a secret. Nolan also climbed into the ice water and it did not seem to phase him. He allowed me to take him out and continued playing in the ice water. Who knew all it took was some ice for this kid to be mesmerized.
