The Last First
It was fun to post birthday blogs for Heather and Kyran, many of their pictures hadn't been seen before. Nolan has been a part of this blog from day one though. Some of you may even remember his first debut! Even though you have probably seen these pictures, I still want to share them again. It is my very last first birthday.
Nolan doesn't have Heather's charisma, or Kyran's lovability, but then, he has things they don't. Nolan has the most contagious smile I have ever seen, and he uses it constantly. Just today he was laughing because he was sitting in a shopping cart. He is very independent for such a little baby, quietly playing by himself for hours. It can be easy to forget that he's not napping. Kyran is quiet and moody, Heather is loud and crazy, Nolan is my sanity. The quiet in the dinh. If Nolan had been any different, I am not sure of how well I would be handling my situation as of now. Sometimes I get into lengthy conversations with my mom about how good he is. Simply amazing, isn't it?
Anybody who has kids will understand. Nolan hardly cries, when he does it is out of neccesity. You can entertain him just by smiling at him, and he will take naps without a fight. Of course, the constant smiles make him an instant favorite for my camera. lol I'm sure, if you have been keeping up with my blog on a semi-regular basis, you know the constant trouble Heather and Kyran cause. When I became pregnant for a third time, I felt worn out and frazzled at the idea of THREE! I am glad to know and care for him though, he is an angel. If it were not for his mellow and happy attitude, things might be different. :)
So, Happy Birthday Nolan! It has been a crazy year, full of many experiences for us all. You have taught me that compassion and love really know no bounds, and that a smile really is all it takes to brighten a room.
