Eats: Not a very picky eater, though he does not like skins/peels. He loves pickles (insides) and Tomatoes (peels skin off). He loves milk (whole) which we are now switching to what we drink.
Sleep: Consistently sleeps through the night, but still taking 1-2 hours to go down for nap or bed. We are playing with bed time and nap time a bit to try and shorten that, but he does get the recommended total hours of sleep (12-14 hours) so we can't complain to much!
Size/Health: He is 26.2 lbs (43%) 33.5 in tall (19%) and head size is 47.7 cm (34%). He is a little peanut but growing perfectly on his curve so he is a healthy little boy! Belly button is still herniated, but since it is still soft and not bothering him it is cosmetic and we are leaving it for another year (and even in a year a surgeon may say leave it). He just lost a toe nail from hand foot mouth he had almost 2 months ago! Doesn't seem to bother him though!
Knows: He can count 1-13, sometimes skipping order. He is starting to do it 1 to 1. He knows most the letters in his name. He knows some shapes, though we are still working on it. He knows some colors but insists on saying red when he points to his wall and there never was or will be red, haha. He knows quite a few words and is beginning to speak in simple sentences. Here ya go, mama! was one of his longest (handing me the remote). He is definitely starting to string 2 words together.
Potty: He has sat on the potty after nap almost every day and then before bed. He has coincidentally gone a couple times with a big celebration but not consistent yet. He isn't doing much, but at least he isn't afraid!
Nolan got fish from grandma and some trucks and cars from his uncles. He is in heaven!
We celebrated Nolan's birthday with his friend on his birthday while we were staying at Baraboo Hills Campground. Nolan woke up to balloons in his pack and play! He loved it!
For gifts, Nolan got some really cool tractors, a BBQ set, and some letter and number magnets. Literally 2 hours before that I had pointed to a small bike sitting against a tree and told Alex that was what I was looking for for Nolan. A complete stranger/neighbor came over with the bike and said her grandson out grew it and she was wondering if any of the 7 kids under 4 there would want it. We told her we would love it as it was Nolan's birthday and exactly what we were looking for! He was so excited! We bought training wheels when we got home and he is loving it!
