Dear Nathan ...



Dear Nathan,

You continue to amaze us everyday. Everyday you are learning new words and phrases. It is crazy to think how just a few months ago you could only communicate in grunts and now you can tell us exactly what you want it don't want.

You continue to explore your world and we call you our monkey. There us no limit to what you won't climb or what piece of furniture you won't scale. You are definitely keeping us on our toes.

You got another haircut this month and you definitely still hate them. This time you began crying before we even made it into the salon. We didn't know whether to laugh or cry when you turned to the stylist finger in the air yelling "NO"! Even though you cried like crazy, you let her finish. You look like such a little man now it is hard to remember that you are still a baby.

You have also become quite the little chef.  You have always loved food (you take after your mom) but now you have discovered a love of cooking.  You drag your foot stool everywhere and get up to help with the cooking.  Your favorite is definitely using the hand mixer and of course you take your role as official "food taster" seriously.  Very few things hit the dinner table without your seal of approval.

We can hardly wait to see what you do to surprise us next.

We love you!

I love that you are committed to creating these Barbara! We will forget about the little things, but these are sure to remind us when they are all grown up!
He is such a handsome boy.

Aw. :) We're still mainly in the grunting stage and it's hard to imagine life on the other side. It must be so surreal!

(Found you on the PYHO linkup.)

Oh he's cute! I do haircuts at home, but I do have to bribe my 3 with "white raisins" (i.e. yogurt covered raisins) to get through it.

I love that he is the official food tester. I want that job too (but only for desserts).

My boy was completely obsessed with Toy Story from Nathan's age until about 7 or 8. I still know almost every word by heart.
