Nolan Bradley Jansen was born two years ago today at 4:08 a.m. He weighed 8 pounds. Today, he weighs 33! I can't believe 2 years have flown by already! As I sit here writing this Nolan is down in the basement playing at his toolbench (Santa's gift to him this year), and it just seems like yesterday that he was Heath's size swaddled in a blanket next to me on the couch! We are so blessed to have two happy, healthy boys!
We are so thankful for Nolan's chubby cheeks, big blue eyes, feisty spirit, sweet, cautious, and thoughtful nature, and funny personality! He has us laughing constantly with silly words, make believe, and circle dancing with his fireman hat on. We are amazed at what he learns each day: he knows most of his shapes, colors, & animals, and we are working on his ABC's and counting! He keeps us challenged by his stubborness, whining, & screeching, but is very good at sitting in time out and giving hugs and saying sorry when done! And he continues to soften us with his big hugs and "I... Love... YOU!" before bed each night!
I made a video of pictures from his past year! It's amazing to see how much he's changed. He went from a CHUBBY, rolly polly one year old, to a solid, tall two year old! He is just so "handsome"! If you ask him who is handsome he will say "No No"! (Just like his Daddy!)
Thank you to everyone who has loved him, prayed for him, watched him, and taught him! We have so many amazing friends and family members who have, and will continue to shape him into the incredible boy he is and who we dream he will become someday!
Happy Birthday No No! Mommy and Daddy love you more than you can ever imagine!!!
