Well, the teen months are over. And to celebrate that Nate has really started communicating. His current spoke words include mom/ma, dad, football, yes, no, nana, teda (tessa), papa, juice, wawa, tuto (pacifier) and night night. His signed words include all done, more, touchdown, baby, ball, dad, eat, dog, thank you, snow, rain, water, dance/music, sleep, cat, happy, please, tuto, I'm sorry, milk, book, bread, toast, and drink.
We are in amazement of it. He really like to tell us stuff, sometimes using made up words, but often some signing or real words come through.
Football is almost coming to an end. Nate has been watching many a game with me...I hope the Olympics will fill our sports void next month!
It is super cute when he wants to play - he signs "more" in the living room and wants us to chase him. He's even learning how to chase us!
What have we done? We celebrated Ry's birthday, got to meet Thomas' new sister Helen, played with friends - especially our neighbors!
Here are a few of our favorite pics!
