So in case you missed the news last week we were snowed in- ALL WEEK. Nate is like his momma and does not care much for snow or being stuck indoors so it was a trying week. It was a challenge to keep Nate busy and still manage the work emails because thanks to the blackberry and the computer corporate america does not really take snow days anymore. The good news is that the power stayed on and we had plenty to eat and Nate loves a good snuggle so we stayed warm.
However, this week of snow confirmed that I am a southern to the core and I do not care for that cold white stuff.(Hence, the new blog background.) Nate does not seem to like it much either. My highlight of the week was when we finally got in the car this weekend and I when I opened the car door to strap Nate in and Bob Marley was playing on the radio and Nate smiled at me. We had a moment as those Jamaican jams took us to some place warm. It warmed my heart.
I am a little behind as Nate is fast approaching 9 months but here are his 8 month photos. He is officially into EVERYTHING. He is a super crawler and he loves to race towards the stero, DVD player, outlets, and anything else that is dangerous. He is pulling up onto everything too and he is really having a good time, all the time. He loves to eat his finger foods - peas, avocados, bananas, kiwi, and anything that he can pick up. He also loves to "talk" we have no idea what he is saying but he is always having some interesting conversations with his toys.
This is his girl Lila who came in town over the Christmas holidays
Nate had a special Christmas. He got to spend time with his GiGi (great grandmother) and all 4 grandparents, although I have no proof of when his Oma and Papa were here, but they were here sorry that I dont have photos.
It also snowed big time. Nate is not too fond of the wet cold snow.
