Mellow Man

Everyone always comments about how mellow Nolan is. And thank goodness for that, because we drag him around everywhere with us! We had another busy weekend full of friends, family, and fun! And Nolan just went along for the ride. Being that we are the first of all our friends to have a baby, we don't want to miss out on any of the fun, so we just bring him along. And he is more than happy to be held by anyone and everyone! Here are just a few pictures from a wonderful long weekend! Happy Memorial Day!

Congrats Uncle E and Auntie Kim on your new home!

Moving Day!

Naked Nolan

Just a few snapshots of Nolan's new favorite past-time...being naked! It has been so hot here, and he has proven to be a true Jansen, he is warm all the time, the less clothes he has on, the happier he is! Check out his awesome rolls!

Whirlwind Week

So I haven't posted in over a week because I really don't think that I have had a chance to sit down and relax in over a week! I am now back at school and after teaching all week, after school commitments, and getting ready for Barbie's Birthday Bash tonight...I'm wiped! A few highlights from the past week: Nolan's fist adventures with rice cereal, a WONDERFUL Mother's Day, and a great night with family! Here are some pictures to document our fun times!
I'm not so sure about this mushy stuff!

More Kisses from Nolan's favorite cousin Payton!
It's really hard to get all the kids to smile at once...
so Nolan decides to nod off!

Sweet Home Chicago!

We are back in Denver after our wonderful trip to Illinois and Michigan. Nolan had a stomach virus and got off to a rocky start, but hung in there as we visited with one friend or family member after the next. With one bottle of Pedialyte consumed and an average of 4 dirty diapers an hour, by Sunday we had our precious Nolan back to his normal healthy self. The last few days were just as busy, but much easier with a happy boy on our hands! Here's a video of all our adventures. It's a bit long, so sit tight, relax, and enjoy!

Sumo Baby

We had our 4 month well check appointment with our pediatrician today. And as we expected, Nolan is one healthy boy! Weighing in at 17 lbs. 6.8 oz. Nolan is in the 90% for weight! He is 25 3/4 in. long, which puts him in the 75% for height. And once again, the "meatloaf", as a good friend of mine calls him, has a little head, 41.4 cm. (27 %) But no concern, his "chubbers cheekers" make his head look plenty big! So now we are ready for the next step...rice cereal! We take off tomorrow for 6 days in Chicago, so we'll probably start that adventure when we get back home next week. We are so blessed to have such a healthy baby, and we are especially thankful after he's slept for almost 12 hours, straight through the night now for about 2 months! At this moment Nolan is sleeping off the pain from his shots, while I'm busy packing for his first flight. We can't wait to be surrounded by friends and family this long weekend. Pray for no screaming on the flights and a happy baby as we cart him around non stop for days!
