17 months...

Seriously, I wrote this on Dec. 3rd...time to post!

What fun we have had this month! 3 of his 4 molars have come in, as well as another tooth on the bottom. How fun to be able to really chew!

We've had lots of playdates, fun times at the park, visiting aunt Christina and uncle Damien, meeting baby animals, and playing the bowl drums!

Nate is a super dancer now, spinning around and even putting his arms over his head. Just give him some music, any music, and he's a happy boy. I wonder where he gets that...

He's still my super helper around the house - swiffering, taking out the laundry, bringing in the groceries. Let's hope he likes doing chores when he gets older.

He loves wearing shoes too! He's up to a size 6, and has a few pairs now. And, unlike his momma, he will wear them around the house all day long!

Here are a few pics...so hard to choose!

As I sit here on the computer, checking my emails and blogs, what do I hear downstairs? No, I didn't leave Nate to fend for himself...he's laughing and playing with his aunt and uncle. Tessa neni and Stephen bacsi are playing chase, putting the Avatar in the nativity scene, and dancing to the music. And mom gets a couple minutes of peace. good day. very good day.

lazy post...

it's been a week. i haven't posted. been crazy. highlights - lost my rings and watch (Ry found 'em last night), Nate has figured out how to crawl into and on top of almost everything (boxes, dryer, chairs, table, etc.), boot camp is kicking my butt, and we decided kinda last minute to host an Advent party (tomorrow!). Will work on Nate's 17 month post...teaser for next week!

from mom's purse - yup, Nate has done it! I found $16 strewn around the living room this morning. And when I went after my little boy, he just laughed and ran! Guess someone is ready for an allowance!

happy birthday Mom!!

Today is my mom's birthday! She doesn't read my blog often, but if I tell her I posted about her, maybe she will.

My mom is an amazing woman! She has lived all over the world, speaks 3 languages, a great friend, and a perfect partner to my dad. And I hope I can be as good of a mom to Nate as she was to me!

Happy Birthday! To another great year!!

Here is a pic we took on Thanksgiving, when we celebrated her birthday. We gave her square plates, which she has wanted since she was a little girl. Do you think she's excited?
