Friday Randoms

1- We went to see Isabella play soccer 2 weeks ago. Nolan had a blast kicking the ball around with her.

And borrowing my sunglasses.

2- Nolan & I have had a nasty cold for a week now. The kind that makes you cough up a lung and feel generally crappy and, in my case, lose my voice almost completely. I spent 2 full days sounding like Marge Simpson.

& for the first time in my life, Nyquil is not helping me sleep. Is it weaker than it used to be? Or is it me?

3- We went to the health department yesterday to get vaccinated for H1N1. I have a slightly unreasonable amount of fear about swine flu. We all have asthma in our house, and are prone to getting coughs that won't quit. Nolan especially. So it was really important to me that we get him vaccinated, and us too, if possible. Ben found out about it the day before and got to the health department early that morning. He was 10th in line. And it's a good thing. This is the line that looped around the parking lot as we were leaving:

There were just as many people behind me
and in the building when I took that photo too.
It was like something out of a movie.

4- Nolan went with Tamera to a photo shoot this week. They were there early, so Tamera took some shots of Nolan while they waited. I LOVE them. Nolan had a ton of fun playing in the leaves, and she captured the future model in him.

Blue Steel

5- The month of October is completely getting away from me. November is not going to be better. I can't really handle the idea that snow is going to be flying and it will be Christmas before we know it. I like this season! I want to enjoy it!

It's not just you on the NyQuil thing. They took out the pseudophedrine, so it's no nearly as good anymore!

Nolan's eyes... I could drown in them. Gorgeous.

I feel the same about the season - where did it go??

Rachel said...

Seriously, his eyes are quite amazing. Our blue-eyed boys are going to have us wrapped around their finger for their whole lives!
