Week 32

Really, 32 weeks?? Wow. Nathan is up on all fours this week. He has three directions, backwards, left and right.

We think he is teething but really it could just be a cold. I have no idea at this point.

Nathan had pizza crust for the first time last night and really went to town.

That is all as it was a hard week for both the grandparents and parent. When it rains...

Week 31

Saturday - Looked for bike for Laura. Bought Laura a bike. Looked at 3 wheeled strollers as the one umbrella stroller is a bit short to push on long walks.

Sunday - Trip to Costco to find a bike helmet, unsuccessful but we still bought lots of other items. Dinner at the grandparents house. Nathan tried peaches and really liked them. Thanks Gramies.

Monday - Got new car seat and installed it in under 5 minutes. Wow those Britax are easy to install. Nathan looks pretty good in his new plush seat. I wish they made them for adults.

Tuesday - Mom whipped up teething biscuits, just because she wanted to make something. Not because Nathan is teething.

Wed - Not really sure I think I walked in a daze from a lack of sleep.

Thursday - Parent/Child Class. The topic of choice this week was breast cancer. Still a daze from no sleep. Went to bed at 7:30 with Nathan and had a great night of sleep.

Friday -Went for a walk with some moms. We think teething has begun but we think he is starting with his molars first? Only time will tell. We are doing ear pulling, drolling a bit more than normal and chewing on everything.

One thing that Nathan started to do a couple weeks ago is scream in delight at the cats. He hasn't figured out that they run away when he screams. Paul has also given Nathan a new nickname. "Bam Bam". Nathan is constantly hitting or slamming toys on the floor or counter. Nathan clearly understands the sign for milk these days. He gets very excited to see it when he is hungry. I hope he starts to use the sign soon. He also has a strange love for water. A cup or sippy cup will bring delight to his eyes (as long as it doesn't contain formula). Nathan rolls to get to everything these days. So I have started to baby proof the downstairs area. I need to be better at keeping my purse off the ground as he rolls over to it the moment I turn my back. No forward movement yet but he is working on it.

Lots of pictures this week, none of Paul. Need to work on that.

Week 30

What a wonderful week to be the proud parents of Nathan. Nathan got to spend last Saturday morning with his father. Dad gave him a bath and took him to REI. Then Nathan went on to spend the afternoon with Gramies and Bestafar while mom and dad got to go roller blading and out to a sushi dinner.

Paul is a Chilly Hilly champ. Biking over 33 miles around a very hilly island with another 4338 other crazy people. Nathan and I headed over to play with Dylan and Ryan. They were very eager to let him hold pennies and nickels. Their mom was quick to point out that Nathan is a bit young for that.

Nathan had his 6 months photos done with week, too bad he is almost 7 months. Paul says we don't have to tell him he is 7 months in the pictures. :) I have to say they turned out great. I can't wait to share them with his fans.
