Week 42

This week was daunting to post as there were so many photos to pick from.

In Seattle the weekend turned out to be super warm and we all went up to the cabin! Fun, Fun, Fun. Nathan loved the cabin. More corners to explore and keep his mom and dad on their toes.

Nathan is working on his balance this week. There is much more work to be done there, but he is doing pretty good.

Here are 2% of the photos we took in Week 42...

40 Weeks

The big 40. 40 weeks that is.

If you are following are blog you know Nathan knows the word light but we have a new development this week, he can sign the word light. Paul and I discovered that tonight. The conversation went something like this.

Nathan looks at up at light and does the sign.
I look at Paul and ask "Did he just sign light?"
Paul answers "I don't know, try it again".
So I turn on the light and Nathan does the sign.
Paul and I look at each other. Hmmm
Paul says "Try again"
I say were is the light? Nathan looks at light and his hand goes up and he signs it.
Can you tell I am excited??

What I don't get is I have been doing the sign for kitty since he was born, we just learned the word light last week and I just started the sign for light this week. Strange. So he has two signs, milk and light.

He has lots of babble this week. ba ba ba and va va va. No ma ma or da da yet.

What else is he doing... eating. This kid has discover the wonderful love for bread and food in general. He is feeding himself finger food... I should say shoveling food in his mouth, using both hands. Things he gets are brown rice, cheese, bits of fruits, veggies, beans, pasta, chicken and bread. If I had to say what Nathans favorite foods are apple/pear sauce, avocado, and chicken. His top two hands down are yogurt and bread.

Nathan has also learned how to have a tantrum when I take away something he can't have. Paper and bread causing the biggest fuss.

Week 39

Lots of activity this week and this week we've managed to capture a lot of photos of this activity. For instance Nathan went on his first bike ride with Mom and Dad. He, of course, hung out in his bike trailer. He was making a concerted effort to sleep, however the bumps seemed to disagree with him. Plus it was another week of Nathan being sick, sleeping more, and generally less happy with his day-to-day life.

Laura also started helping her dad's company by doing some testing of their products. Those couple of days were ultra-busy as she spends the morning getting Nathan ready to go to Grandmas then the afternoon working, then the evening looking after the two babies (one big and one little).

Nathan is starting to have an inkling of an idea about some of the words that his parents use. Such as kitty, light, bird, and halcyon. OK, so maybe not the last word (means peaceful/happy).

Nathan also got his first haircut this week. Fun? Not for him.
