Yep – today is definitely the due date and everyone knows it except the star of the show – Nolan himself! 

(Who has apparently inherited his father’s incredible ability to sleep in.)

So onward we go, towards July…

C’mon little guy… mommy only has so much time off work this summer and would like to spend some of it with you!

Apparently when you combine a Superman shirt, a motorcycle helmet, a two-year old and his grandparents this is how you spend the afternoon…
we’ve dubbed him a new superhero called “Speed Racer”:


We’re going to try and get a site up that lists all of our video files in one place, but for now, see Speed Racer in action by following these links:

Follow these links for a couple short video clips of Carson telling mommy about Nolan’s toys, and saying his soon-to-be brother’s name.

Apparently someone was misinformed about who is supposed to occupy the little bed next to mommy and daddy’s bed!

Carson’s new favorite thing is playing Baby Smash on the computer. The program was written by a guy who runs a tech blog that Scott follows and allows a kid to just sit and beat on the keyboard, or play with the mouse, without harming anything else on the computer. (Unless you have a laptop and your hard drive is located under the keyboard!) Carson loves playing with it for 10-15 minutes at a time and I highly recommend it to any other parents with a kid who wants to beat the heck out of a keyboard now and then.

Today was mommy’s last day of work until September 2! After a hectic week of wrapping things up she walked out the door around 6pm and, thanks to some friends who offered to watch Carson for a few hours, went out and enjoyed some yummy tapas to celebrate. If baby Nolan doesn’t come soon, she is looking forward to some serious mommy time this week, filled with a few days of NOTHING.  

The final minutes on the countdown before she walked out the door read:

Aunt Cindy got a great shot of our little sun-bunny playing in the grass at Jay and Katie's wedding on Saturday... needless to say, someone is enjoying the season!

Big, huge, to the ladies from our church group who joined me last night for a ladies night and to all of the couples for the gift of a new jogging stroller/car seat combo. I had a great time hanging out with all of you and, as of this morning, the car seat is securely fastened in the van and ready for a trip to the hospital.
