12 weeks

(I want to share some pictures on here so badly but it's telling me that i've used up all my free photo space! What the heck?)

My baby boy is just about 12 weeks old and i'm in disbelief! He is growing up SO fast! I wanted to take some time to post a little bit about this sweet boy of mine and how amazing he is!

Nolan is over 15 lbs now. He has already outgrown all 0-3 month size clothing and much of his 3-6 months clothes! Big boy!
He is such a happy little baby and loves to share his smiles with you.
He loves to sit and look out of our big front window.
He LOVESSSS when you sing to him. Smiles and giggles the whole time.
Nolan is also very ticklish. It's hilarious! We love his laughs and squeals.
He sleeps SO GREAT. 7, 8, or even 9 hours at a time! After Katie, I didn't really believe that any baby ever slept longer than 3 or 4 hours, but then Nolan came along! Boy loves his sleep.
He definitely loves his momma. Sorry everyone. He is mommy's little boy!
He has such a sweet disposition and personality. Everyone can't help but comment on what a good baby he is. Katie was a good baby too, so. . . nature vs. nurture, you decide. :p
He loves to stand up or sit up, and to be facing outward so he can see everything.
So far, he doesn't really like the bouncy seat but the bumbo is a winner.

Katie LOVES him, although she gets a little bugged when he "hits" or "kicks" her. We try to explain that he can't help it but she still gets annoyed. For the most part though, she is absolutely in love with her little brother. I always have to tell people this, so sorry if you've heard it, but it's such a sweet story! Sometimes, Nolan will be upstairs napping or with Brad and Katie and I will be downstairs. We'll hear Nolan start to cry and Katie will drop whatever she is doing and run to the stairs calling "I coming Nolan! I coming!" It melts my heart how much she wants him to be comfortable and happy and have everything he needs.

My heart is just full of love for my little family and the amazing blessing that they are to me. Though they can't fully understand yet, I tell both Katie and Nolan everyday how thankful I am for them and for Heavenly Father allowing me to raise them. I tell them how much I love them and how much their Father in heaven and Jesus Christ love them and that I am so lucky that I get to be their momma. I really am so lucky.

For pictures, check Facebook because I can't figure out how to get pictures on here! :(
