Go Nolen...I mean Noles!

Nolen is a Seminole by birth, the boy had no choice. I mean a boy named Nolen can't exactly grow up and decide to go to Florida now can he!?!

This past weekend we took Nolen to his 2nd ever football game. He did better then last year. For one, mommy could drink till her hearts content, no nursing this year! He also made it a lot longer into the game then he did last year. A whole 15 minutes into the 1st quarter longer (we take our small victories.) He can also do the warchant now. This has nothing to do with the hours and hours Mr.A spent teaching him. Maybe after football season we can teach him something more useful, like his ABC's.

Overall it was a really fun weekend. Football, JoJo & Papa, and a little escape back to the college days. We <3 football season (and our little Seminole!)

Chatty Cathy

I've read about this before, how language explodes after 18 months. Wasn't quite expecting this. This kid is talking, all day, all night, repeating words like a parrot.
Yesterday I told him we were going to the grocery store. He replied, "wine, cofcof (coffee), french fries." Sounds like a good grocery list to me!

Then there's his bedtime stories. His Favorite, I Love you Through and Through, he can read a whole page himself.
Me: "I love your happy side"
Nolen: "Sad side, sad side, sad side."
(Some call this memorizing...I call him a genius baby who can read!)

Then there's morning time when I leave for work. He follows me out making sure I have all the essentials, yelling "keys, cofcof (coffee), ice (my water), byebyes, byebyes, olive (I love.)"

Ahh..I know I've said this before, but THIS is my favorite age. Love this little man!
