Nathan is 11 months!

Mommy is running a little late actually posting these pictures of me! I guess I'm keeping her busy - but can you blame me for wanting to play with pretty sparkly balls that are in the tree with all those pretty lights?

When I'm not playing - or pulling - ornaments on the tree you might find me just standing around. But really, this standing thing, sometimes I just really want to practice standing. And then decide that crawling is the safer and faster way to get what I want. Unless I'm standing next to something that I can push- then I'm off!

I still love the stairs. Sometimes when Luke isn't around I go into his room and play happily and quietly with all of his toys for long stretches of time.

I love to eat. So far my record is two whole pieces of pizza in one sitting. And whatever day they gave me ham for the first time (and TONS of other new things to try!) was a very good day!

I have my four front teeth, and am working on at least four more, maybe six. Mommy tries to count when I'm laughing and my mouth is wide open.

Speaking of laughing - nobody can get me laughing as hard as Lucas. Daddy is a close second.

We Might be Moving

Just a quick update - we have put our house on the market!  In an effort to simplify our lives - and end the commuting madness - we're hoping to move over to Bentonville or Rogers, Arkansas.  While we'll miss our house and especially our friends, we are excited about this new opportunity.

So, if you know of anyone interested in a great Craftsman style home, click here!

Nathan is 10 months!

So I'm TEN months today!
Mommy is so on top of it today.

I still love all the things I used too.  I also really love looking at board books.  Climbing in the sandbox.  And I learned how to slide off the furniture on my belly - so I don't land on my head.  I guess that isn't a good idea.  I'm pushing all four of my top teeth through too.

Sometimes I say "mama" and babble "da da".  But I still don't know who is who.

Well I'm going to go climb the stairs or something!

Nathan is 9 months!!

Hey guys -
I made it to 9 months (and a few days).

I way a whopping 22lbs 12ozs, and I'm 29in long. I finally have two teeth. And I climb stairs like a champ! Actually I think it's a hilarious game when mommy sits me in the living room to high tail it to the stairs and then I start giggling when she chases after me. Every. Single. Time. I also pull up on everything. I sometimes can open the cabinet doors. And I especially love to open the drawer under the stove and pull out the pans in there.

When I'm outside I love to get dirty. Eat sand, and mulch, and sticks, and pine cones. I also like to go for bike rides in the trailer and watch luke ride his bike "wiff pedals and a chain". And I love slides!

Nathan is 8 months!

Hey everyone -
I took some time out from my sit schedule to get my picture in the chair. Here's what you need to know about the last month.

I crawl!
I pull up on things. Mommy and daddy had to lower my crib mattress because of that.
I say mama and dada and make lots of other fun and exciting noises.
I'm still working on solid foods. I really love to gnaw on trees (broccoli). I love to swing.
I still think it's hilarious when Luke sits on me or lays on me. My face lights up whenever he is around. And usually that means Luke changes his mood too since he seems to like me.
I'm currently wearing 18 month onesies. I might be foiling mommy's plan of wearing hand me downs. At this rate I'll be wearing Luke's current wardrobe next month.
And I weigh in at 22lbs 4oz. (Only 10lbs behind Luke.)

Nathan is 7 months!!!

And a few days:)
After a long month if traveling to South Carolina, ohio, michigan, and Indiana we finally made it home. Mommy caught up on everything and remembered to take my picture!

I am now a master roller- and I'm really trying to figure out how to move once I get up on all fours. My favorite things to say are "mUHmuhMUH" and squeal at Luke because I think he's hilarious! I'm also figuring out how to pick little things up - specifically roasted carrot and sweet potato sticks and broccoli and gnaw them with my gums. I'm still super laid back and HUGE!

Workin time

Mommy and daddy are getting me ready to drive grandpas tractors when we visit this summer.

Nathan - 5 (+ a few weeks) months in the chair

Oh hey.
Mommy says we were out of town for the actual day of my five month birthday. All I know is mommy keeps telling people how well I traveled, and I even slept the entire flight home. I think on all four flights I was asleep before we took off!

I found my toes this month...and spend a good amount of time just laying on my back holding on to them.

I also love to sleep on my tummy. And recently discovered that when I'm not too tired when mommy puts me down for a nap I roll all around my crib.

Oh and almost all of the time I think Luke is hilarious...except when he scares me awake.

Nathan - 4 months in the chair!

So mommy is a little late posting my four month chair picture! Probably because she's so busy squeezing my chubby legs and keeping Luke out of trouble!

This month I've started to roll from back to front pretty regularly, and even roll over when I'm sleeping to get more comfortable.

I also went to the doctor and got shots (who's idea was that?) and they weighed and measured me. My head is in the 99th percentile. My height is in the 98th percentile at 27in. And I weigh 16lbs 12oz. Basically I'm huge!

I also smile and laugh and drool!

Nathan - 3 months!

I love to smile.
I'm learning to laugh.
Sometimes I roll over from my tummy.
I really love sleep- especially 11-12 hour stretches at night.
I spent three nights with just daddy and Luke while mommy was at a work retreat- and we all survived!
When my hands aren't being tricksy and evasive I really like to suck on them.

Invitation to the pile

Luke LOVES to make piles of blankets and pillows go crazy in them. I consider this Luke's "welcome to the club" -that he invited Nathan into the pile.
