I forgot to mention that Nolan has 2 teeth that cut through a couple of weeks ago. This may be no big deal to some, but for Nolan (and us) it means a lot of drooling, congestion, fever, and fussing. Pure joy.

a little glimpse of jealousy in the background.


It’s pretty funny going through all of the outtakes, here is one that Adella felt the need to jump in on..

I had to crop it down because a certain someone is in the final stages of potty training and prefers to run around in her birthday suit.

5 Months!

Here is Nolan’s 5 month photo! He can now sit up on his own and play with toys, and he is loving all the “real” food we are giving him. His favorites so far have been carrots and sweet potatoes, and he pretty much refused to eat green beans. We’re not sure how much he weighs at this point, but he is getting really heavy and I should also note that the onesie being worn in this photo is one of Adella’s 18-24 month…

SoCal Snow Day

The community we live in hosts events throughout the year for residents, and this past weekend was the annual “Snow Day”. We arrived early and watched the hired snow making company shred up the huge ice blocks and set up the hills for sledding. It was Adella and Nolan’s first time ever touching real snow, or somewhat real…. and we invited some friends to join us for the day too. Tim wasn’t able to sled because of his injury, and Adella wasn’t thrilled with sledding, so we only went down the bunny hill a few times. She thought it was too cold, a true socal girl. The best part was that it was in the low 80’s and no shoveling or winter gear was required.

The day ended with lot’s of provided doughnut holes and a coffee bar that we took full advantage of. Can’t wait till next year!!
