Watch out! He's got wheels!

So, Nolan decided to pull himself up to the walking toy and take off across the floor yesterday.  So crazy, since he just decided about a week and a half ago, that he would start crawling on his hands and knees- instead of doing the army crawl across the floor.  He doesn't know how to turn or guide the walker, so he gets irritated when he gets to the end of the room and runs into something.

Pictures of the kids

These are just a few pictures I've taken of the kids when we've had some nice weather lately; and I've been having fun playing around with photo editing.
I need to get a few more of Nolan, but it's a little more difficult to get him to sit still for a photo shoot.... he tends to crawl out of the picture before I can snap it!

I loved this one.  Such a fabulous expression on Nolan's face!

We went to visit Grandpa and Grandma Bauer and the weather turned out to be beautiful, so Grandpa took the kids over to the church play structure to get some energy out.


This girl LOVES to swing!!

Yes, Grandpa was pretty much the hero of the day!

Wordless Wednesday

Look Who's ONE!!

Nolan turned a year old on Monday, the 17th, and we had a big family party for him that night.  This past year has flown by, and it just doesn't seem like he could possibly be a year already.

Grandma Bauer made the cake.  I told her I would love to have something with monkeys, and told her the colors. It was perfect!  So adorable!

He has very quick hands, and swiped at the cake before anyone could catch him....
and he LOVED it!!

Here's just a short clip of him with his cake.

The end result.... a very messy boy that got tossed in the tub!

The boys had fun playing basketball in the hallway.

He got some great gifts.... toys, clothes, and books!!

Granny and Austin

Papa helping the kids discover how the new toys work.

Nolan and Mommy.  Sure do love this little booger!

(Daddy hid out behind the camera a good portion of the night.  He has a way of consistently avoiding pictures!)

Nolan really enjoyed the balloons!

Happy Birthday, Little Nolan-bug!  We love you so much!!

Not a fan!

I put Nolan on the horse swing outside thinking he would love it.  Hmmm.... not so much!  This is the reaction I got.  Guess we'll wait a while before we try the horsie swing again!
Sure made for some cute pictures, though!
