Nathan is hysterical lately. All he wants to do is move, move, move. Whether it's walking behind the walker, cruising around the furniture, or dancing like Stevie Wonder, he's a mover and a shaker. He's still not walking on his own ~ thank goodness! ~ but I'm betting it will be soon. The other morning, we were lying in bed and he was grabbing onto the footboard and moving his head up and down like he was galloping on a horse (hey, maybe he'll be a jockey - he IS only in the 15th %tile for his height) Of course, when I decided to video him, he didn't do it like he had been, but I think you can get the idea. Too cute!

Nathan is 1!

We celebrated Nathan's 1st birthday, which was November 1, with a family party with a twist. It was supposed to be at our house, but Mark was sick with a stomach bug for 5 days (!) and we didn't want to expose anyone to his germs. SO, I took the party to my parent's house minus Mark :( And some people still didn't want to come because they were afraid of the germs the rest of us might be carrying :) WIMPS! :) Just kidding ~ but when Nathan looks back at his 1st birthday party pics, he'll wonder where you all were....

We decided to go with the whole "smiley face" theme since Nathan is our smiley guy. He was so sweet. Was completely unsure of the cake, but after I put some icing in his mouth, he was all over it. He got into opening the gifts, too, which was fun. Will make for a fun Christmas morning at our house.


Halloween came and went again this year without too much hoopla. We had our annual pumpkin carving party the weekend before and had great fun with our friends, family, and all the kids. I think all told, there were 19 adults and 16 kids with one on the way. Pretty soon we will be outnumbered ~ scary~

Here's some photos from the event and our trick 0r treating ~ we had a lion, a frog, and a crusader this year.


Alright, I admit, I've been a MAJOR slacker on the blog as of late. I don't know if I've been extra busy or life just hasn't seemed that funny around here but that's all about to change. I'm going to make up for the slacking today! Enjoy!
