Big Man


Nolan is getting so big! We are just amazed everyday at what he can do! Our new favorite thing is working around the house while he sits in his Bumbo! He loves sitting up and being a part of all that is going on around him! Check it out!

Holy Cow!


Yesterday we got a call from a friend who offered us his Cubs/Rockies tickets for last night! We couldn't pass them up...what a great opportunity for Mark to be able to take Nolan to his first major league game- with his two favorite teams at that! So naturally, I got Nolan ready to go to the game...in his Cubbie blue. When Mark got home that's when the fun began! The first thing he said was, "I had a feeling you would do that." And so begins our lifetime struggle- who will Nolan root for? The Cubs or the Rockies? Mark won out last night with his argument of, "You know how much this means to me!".


So off to Coors Field we went, Nolan sporting his Matt Holliday t-shirt, and our compromise- his Cubs pacifier! The second we got out of the car downtown, Nolan was in the Snugli, facing forward for the first time, he was laughing hysterically. This is truly the first time we heard him laugh! Either he was so excited for his first game (That's what Daddy thinks!) OR he thought his Mommy and Daddy were so silly for arguing over what he should wear to a game he would just scream though! But we thought it was adorable! Nolan loved taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the park. He lasted a few good innings surrounded by Cubs fans! But then decided to cry for awhile, fall asleep for awhile, and then demand to go home!

We were brave to take him down and happy that we did. It was great for us to get out, have a Rockie dog, and expose Nolan to a little taste of his future! The Cubs pulled it out in the 10th while Nolan was fast asleep in his car seat on I-25 and his Mommy was singing..."Go Cubs Go, Go Cubs Go, Hey Chicago, What do you say, the Cubs are gonna WIN today!"

Tummy Time

Nolan and I have had a great start to my Spring Break! We love lounging around the house, running errands, going on walks, and working on our latest homework: rolling over! He's not quite ready yet, but we are doing lots of Tummy Time to practice. Check out the the video to see how strong Nolan's getting!

Counting Down...



What a crazy week of weather out here in Colorado! The past 3 or 4 days were in the 70's and then today...it's snowing! We had a wonderful weekend with friends, grilled, and went jogging twice. It has been so great to get out of the house! Nolan loves riding in the jogging stroller and loves watching all the people and dogs at Wash. park. He wore shorts for the first time! It's cute to see his chubby little legs! And now tonight, here we are wearing sweats and cuddled up on the couch under a blanket. I only have 2 days left to teach and then I have 3 weeks off! We are looking forward to spending a lot of time together and a trip to Chicago too!
