6 Months Old!!!

Nate is 6 Months Old!!!
We are all loving this age. Nate seems to love it to. He is a champ at rolling over and scooting all around. He moves all around the room however, he has not launched into a full fledged crawl. He makes all kinds of noises and he is enjoying his first few tastes of FOOD. So far he seems to like the fruit and vegies.
His hair is getting long enough that he wakes up with some serious bed head on some mornings. Last week we had to take a picture right when he woke up because his hair was sticking up. It is so adorable.

We tried to take some pictures of Nate in his Halloween outfit last weekend when it was nice and warm. We could not get him to sit still but he sure makes a cute Giraffe. Here is Nate trying to eat the pumpkins.

This is my 2nd post this week so if you missed it, check out the last post- Road Trip

Happy Halloween!

Road Trip

Nate was fasinated with Jay and Quinn!

And of course he LOVES Traci's new house and he always enjoys visiting with Jessica

We had a whirlwind of trip this week. Dad went to see the new private practice that his buddy from Duke opened. Rob and Joe were Rheumatologists together at Duke and now Joe has his own show in Raleigh. It is quite impressive. I also had a client meeting in Raleigh and managed to squeeze in a few visits. Nate was a great sport as we managed to fit all of this in one and half days. On our way back to Atlanta we had dinner with GiGi (great grandmother). Nate put on quite a show for her and his great aunt Jane. He loved the soft carpet at GiGi's house and he was almost crawling.
It was a long car trip for a super short visit but we got a lot of good visits in!
Check back mid week or so for some halloween posts!

THe videos are found!!!!!!

I have officially lost my mind. For the past five months I have been trying to keep it all together; Having a baby, attempting to keep house, entertain family, maintain a career, and show up to places looking like I have gotten some sleep. For the most part I feel that I have done a decent job. However, yesterday I did something that made me feel like failure. I lost my flip video camera. I suspect that I lost it prior to yesterday, but it was yesterday that I realized it went missing. This video camera has some of the most precious memories of my baby and yes, I do put the highlights on the blog but for the most part there is tons of footage that had not been saved on a computer. I turned my house upside down. I looked everywhere. I looked under every piece of furniture and this only made me feel worse because I realized that I do not clean under the couches and soon Nate will be crawling to these dusty dirty locations. My mind kept repeating, what kind of mother loses the video camera with all the memories on it. I entered into a deep self loathing. (thank you mother for taking my desperate phone calls). I obsessed about for the better part of 24 hours. I lost sleep over it, and I really do not have any extra sleep (or energy for that matter) to be giving to anything like this. In a last ditch effort I decided to dig through the trash. So like a mad woman I got out there this afternoon with gloves and went through the big out door trash can and pulled out garbage and after a few minutes I FOUND THE FLIP CAMERA!!!! I was elated. I was not a terrible mother after all. I left like willy wonka with the golden ticket. I cannot believe that I almost threw away my precious memories, but I am not going to go there. I am just going to be thankful that I have the camera and some more precious memories to share with you.

Happy 10-10-10 Birthday Daddy!

Happy 10-10-10 birthday Rob!!!!
We have had a week full of celebrations. On Tuesday Nate attended his 1st happy hour. One of Rob's fellows (rheum doc in training) had her 30th birthday on Tuesday and since it was early Nate came along to wish her happy birthday.
Then Friday mom and dad went out for a Date night to celebrate Rob's birthday. Thank you Mimi and granddad for watching Nate.

5 Months Old

Nate is 5 months old already! He is so much fun and he is a jumpy, squirmy happy little boy.

He loves his bouncer and moving all around. He is an expert turner on the playmat and he loves to roll and roll. No official crawl yet but he is close. I had a hard time getting his 5 month kermit picture because he kept moving all around and trying to eat kermit.

Warning: the video make make cause motion sickness, Nate likes to move all around in the bouncer
