Nolan is already two months old! I can’t believe how quickly he is growing. He is getting so expressive. He smiles all the time. He has started to “talk” back when I talk to him. Currently his favorite thing is his mobile in his crib. He lays in his crib and listens to the music while watching the dinosaurs go round and round. He kicks his legs and waves his arms in enjoyment. It is really fun to watch him enjoy it so much. Nolan also enjoys listening to Aaron and me read him books.
Nolan went to the doctor for his two month check up and everything looked great. He weighed 12 pounds and was 23 inches long. He has started to out grow some of his clothes now. Nolan got his first round of vaccinations at his two month appointment. He handled them pretty well only crying a little bit, however the next few days were a little rough. Nolan had a fever and was pretty uncharacteristically cranky. I think he is about back to his normal self now, thank goodness.
October has been another busy month. We have watched all of the KSU football games. Even heading up to Manhattan to enjoy the atmosphere for one of the games. We did not make it up to the stadium, but enjoyed hanging out with family. Aaron has been busy recording a new CD at Green Jeans Studio in Wellington. The CD should be ready for purchase by December. I know this has been a dream of Aaron’s for a long time. I am so glad it is finally coming together.
Aaron and I have really enjoyed watching Nolan grow and change over the last two months. On October 26, 2011 Nolan’s first cousin on the Traffas side was born. Andrew and Megan Piester welcomed Kylee Rose Piester to the world at 3:55pm, she weighted 7 pounds 15 ounces. Kylee has a full head of dark hair. She is very beautiful. Kylee seems to really like to suck on her hands, it is so cute to watch. Everyone is home and doing well. It is going to be fun watching Nolan and Kylee grow up together.
We are looking forward to November which brings Diane’s birthday on the 8th. Aaron is playing at the Vickie Lackey Funraiser on the 12th. We are very excited to get some family photos taken by Stacie Strong on the 19th. And of course Thanksgiving at the end of the month. The one thing I am not really looking forward to is November 21st, it will be my first day back to work. I think I will miss Nolan so much. The current plan is for Aaron to watch Nolan, which will make it easier, I hope.
