Bored and Busy
ugh. no pictures, I haven't downloaded any in a while... no excuse other than I'm tired. soooooo tired. I finally got a good night's sleep last night and am not very caught up so as of 7:49 pm (right now) I am off to bed in a few short minutes. We visited family on the fourth, it was a really nice day and nolan was good until we got to my sister's house in the evening... he was just done. DONE. so we left early and put him to bed. Luckily, none of the people setting off fireworks woke him up... Hell, even I woke up a few times but he never did. (Bowing down to the sleep Gods).
Anyhoo, he had his 12 month appt... 24 lbs and 1/2 oz. (90th %) and 30" long (75th %) he humored me by eating lima beans today (yay!) and has been giving mama lots of loves lately.
oh, and he took 3 steps several times yesterday! once at home in the a.m. totally by himself, he did it a few more times at my sister's house last night being prompted w/ cell phones. I don't think he'll be walking next week or anything, but I am holding out hope by the end of the month!
