Dave's been out of town the last two days. It's been ok. Nolan has been fine but aside from knowing the days will be long, one thing has been a lot harder than I imagined.

Sometimes we play a game like this, not in the car, where he puts his blanket over his head and stands really still. Then I ask 'where's nolan? Is he hiding behind a chair?' And Nolan will stand very still but a voice from under the blanket will say 'no'. I continue to ask where he is and he continues to say no until I find him. I think it's hysterical. He does too. But for very different reason.

Tomorrow is back to the grind. Mondays are always tough but I'll be running solo for the next few days and that can be difficult. I hope this little angel is on good behavior.

This weekend it was Hat-n-Mittens weather. We still took our walks but got all bundled up. This thrilled Nolan to pieces.

Nolan LOVES his pockets. He loves putting his hands in his pockets and finding new ones- like the ones on the back of your pants. Sometimes he even pulls his pants down while he is trying to smush his pudgy little hands into the pockets.

Where was I? Before the storm threw off my regular blog habits I was doing some Halloween stuff. Here are some never before seen photos of Nolan the monkey. We are at a nearby town's library. He loves this place.

Nolan LOVES the camera. But he doesn't love having his photo taken. We wants to look at all the pictures I've just taken. This makes it difficult to get a good photo of him doing something fun or cute because after he sees the flash, hears the camera click or just senses I'm taking a photo he jumps up grunting at me to see the photo I've just taken.

This week we had a lot of exciting activity on our street. In one single morning, AT THE SAME TIME, there was a truck with a claw picking up the debris from the broken trees and putting them into a dump truck, a school bus AND a cable truck with the worker in the cherry picker working on the wires above.

Sometimes I'm amazed at silly little things. Like how does Nolan know this is a phone? I am fairly certain he's never seen me use a phone with a cord, but then here he is playing with one exactly like he might have seen me using the phone... 20 years ago.

It seemed to me that last week Nolan changed developmentally a whole lot! He started singing along with songs on the cd from music class, he seemed to be interested in pretend playing a lot more, he just seemed to grow up a lot last week.

One of the benefits of having the power out was being able to take some photos of Nolan without him seeing the camera. As a result, we got a few good photos. Notice the mess of delivered pizza goods in the background...

Here is Nolan at breakfast day 1 in the hotel. We forgot his bib so Dave made this one. I think he looks absolutely hysterical.
Here is Nolan looking at the turtle at the Boston/New England aquarium. He LOVED the turtle and we looked for the turtle often, anytime we went to another part of the aquarium we went back to the giant tank and walked around it until we could find the turtle again.
What seemed like a great idea to this scuba diver was NOT a great idea for Nolan. I am not sure I've seen him more scared before and anytime we saw the scuba diver he totally freaked out.
