Letters to Nolan: 11/18/13

Dear Nolan,

What a big boy you are! You are growing so fast and it amazes me every singe day! You think that you are a big boy and you want to do everything that your big brother does! You are trying to figure out how to crawl and have some pretty interesting ways to get around.  Rolling doesn't quite work for you just yet because you only roll from your tummy to your back so instead you push off with your arms and "crawl" everywhere backwards.  You have also started trying to scoot around while sitting up.  
We visited Sneads Asparagus Farm to check out the pumpkin patch and took our annual trip with Uncle Aaron, Aunt Krystal, and Colt to the Apple Harvest Festival at Graves Mountain! The fall is always packed with fun activities and family outings.  You also attended your fourth (yes fourth) wedding this month and were the most behaved baby! 
This month marks the first time I have ever left your side.  Since I started working you and big brother get to stay with RaeRae the one day a week I have to go into the office.  You still haven't taken to liking the bottle even though it is still momma's milk, it is just not the same to you! Our routine at home has changed a little too since I am working at home. Suyappa, our wonderful nanny comes to play with you and brother while momma is working and you both love her. 
Last but not least you are really (really) really excited to start trying to eat "real"food.  Whenever we are eating dinner you watch us so intently and even get mad if we don't let you have some of our food! We have played around with some purees and food that is large enough for you to gnaw on and you seem to be okay with most of them.  Anything that is more of a mushy texture you don't care for.

Here's what you've been up to this month:
