So, Nolan is 2 and still sleeps in his crib. He hasn’t figured out how to get out soooo we’re going to roll with this as long as we can! He also doesn’t sleep with a pillow or a blanket yet! He has no trouble sleeping and we don’t want to fix something that isn’t broken... you know what I mean?? But I feel like at some point we need to introduce a pillow and blanket. Mamas!! When did you little get a big bed? When did they start sleeping with a pillow and blanket?
Nolan found a new friend to play with at church a few weeks ago... his reflection 🤣 It had me cracking up! He would run away then run back at the window and laugh at his reflection. He has such a fun little personality. I am so lucky that I get to be his mama! #nolanalong
We have a record player and a collection of records in our living room but what do we listen to? Raffi and Super Simple Songs with some Disney thrown in 🤣 I honestly have no idea what’s popular these days. Please tell me there are other mamas that feel the same way! And if you’ve figured this out lol what is your secret? What do you like to listen to?
Nolan loves the carousel at the @cmomemphis! He always waves to the horses and thanks them when the ride is over. This time I asked him what his horse’s name was and he said “Nolan” 🤣
He now poses and says “cheeeeese” 😄 I keep thinking that this might be my favorite age but if I’m being honest every age has been my favorite! #nolanalong
I was scrolling through my pictures and found this one that I never posted! It’s definitely one of my favorites. I love that he’s always willing to give his mama a kiss! Holding onto these sweet moments and memories! #nolanalong
Posted my clean house in my stories and got some questions about our L wall! I started collecting Ls when we got engaged. Some have very special memories. I write on the back of them where they were from. For example, the one made out of paper we got for our first anniversary. Another one is from the day I bought my wedding dress. Some are just sweet gifts from friends. My favorite one is the giant L. This was our guestbook at our wedding. I love reading the little notes people wrote to us. I especially love that my Dad signed it. It was probably the last thing he wrote to me. I love that we have these special memories hanging in our home where we see them everyday! Do you collect something special?
Earlier this week I opened my lunchbox and found Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez inside. Later, when I went to apply chapstick, there was a Lightning McQueen sticker stuck on the side of the tube. In just about every picture, Nolan has at least two cars in his hands (for instance this picture - that car is lovingly called “white car”). Cars are everywhere for us right now and you know what? I’m holding onto this because one day I’ll miss randomly finding toy cars in my lunchbox or in the bottom of my purse. I’ll miss Nolan running around the house looking for “Mater Tow Truck” and I’ll miss Car stickers stuck to everything (ok. this one is might not miss that much lol). I’m glad that we have pictures of Nolan clutching his cars because years from now we’ll be able to look back and remind Nolan of these fun times where all he wanted to do was play with cars or read books about cars or talk about cars. I’m loving this age and I’ll always love these memories! Now, if there’s ever Cars trivia somewhere, sign me up! I know way more than anybody ever should about these movies haha
This is not a common sight. Yes. Nolan LOVES to read and often does, but he usually kicks me out of the adult sized chair because that’s where he wants to sit... by himself 🤷♀️ I just had to catch a moment of him reading nicely to himself in his own chair!
