Christmas Parties and Nate on the Move

Nate got to go to a Christmas Party with mom and dad and he loved crawling over to the crackling fire
Nate's cousins Anna Claire, Matthew, and Oscar sent Nate a few things to help him get into the Christmas Spirit so we let him open it early for a little practice so that he would be ready for the big day. He knew exactly what to do.

Tis the Season! and SNOW

Our very own Clark Griswold hanging lights in the snow

Nate's very first snow flake touched his sweet face was last weekend. It was just a quick flurry and no white stuff on the ground but he was still pretty interested as to why he was out in the freezing cold.

7 Months Old

I can hardly believe that Nate is 7 months old already. Everyone told me that when you have kids time flies and it is the truth! We both are both still in shock that we have a real live baby living with us. And now that baby is on the move. Nate starting crawling the day he turned 7 months old. Nate only likes to crawl if he is really motivated. If you put a cell phone or a remote control down in front of him he is gone. Go figure. He also clapped for the 1st time this weekend. He loves it when we clap and over the weekend he was trying so hard to get his little hands to make the clap sound. I would do just about anything to get him to giggle (and I do since it gets me every time). Hearing his laugh if the best thing that my ears have ever heard.

THis is Nate's cousin Jacob and even at this young age this boys are buds! Nate got super excited whenever Jacob came to play with him,

All the old ladies at the pool were checking out my boys.

We all had such a great time spending Thanksgiving in Florida with Oma and Papa.
It was warm enough for Nate to hit the pool and boy did he enjoy the swim.
