Well, as of Sunday January 27, Nolie is one month old. Already???!!! We know - time flies when you're living with a newborn. And we've already seen so many milestones!
First off we're in disbelief that he's outgrown his newborn clothes. He's also getting a bald spot like daddy! Nolie's starting to resemble an itty bitty octogenarian.
He makes eye contact now - that is when he's not looking past our heads at the window or blinds - the excitement of pattern play! He also tracks our whereabouts - particularly during tummy time when he turns his head left and right to find mom's face or dad's voice.
Nolie's pushing with his legs, either to climb Mt. Mama to cover her face in baby "bites," or to kick up with froggy legs when he practices jumping. And he's now regularly attempting to lift his head throughout the day! Baby steps indeed.
Meanwhile mommy and daddy are continuing to adjust to a sleepless and love-filled life. Jeremy went back to work last week, while Mel is adjusting to solo time with the little guy. Luckily Grandma and Papa Joe Raelin come over weekly to provide support, along with local friends who visit and help out. Along with y'all in our online community- through this blog, Facebook, and phone check-ins.
As life becomes more social and oriented to the outside world, we find ourselves posting less. But never fear, we will continue to tell the story of Life with Nolan as it unfolds. Now enjoy his latest photographic highlights from the parent paparazzi!
