Nathan's Monthly Newsletter: Month Fourteen

Dear Nathan,

Happy Fourteen Month old birthday baby. It has been a really fun month with you. Really most months lately have been fun. Your sleep has gotten a little more consistent this month which I appreciate. Not that every night is perfect, but more of them are getting better. You are also able to cry for a moment and then fall back asleep too. The next step is to try and get away from the bottle, which we still give to you every night to help you fall asleep.

I think the thing I've noticed this month is your funny faces. You make such funny faces. That and you love to dance. You love to boogie, whether it's dancing in his car seat or shaking your legs while standing up.

On a good note you are really enjoying the day home now. You don't cry at all when I drop you off. You continue to play when I get there. We are into a good routine of some working and some staying home.

Soon you will be walking. You love to grab my fingers and try to walk around. Or if I'm sitting and you want me to stand up you push my back away from the chair to get me to stand up. Then grab my fingers. Now we've been thinking that you'll walk for a while and it still hasn't happened, but I'm still enjoying the crawling.

You still love to be outside. We spent lots of time outside. You love to play in the sandbox and go down slides. We have to vacuum you room lots more because there is sand in your shoes. You also don't seem to mind the cold or the wind, like Lucas does.

You are getting better at showing us that you understand the world around you. You can point to your ears, and nose. You can find pictures of common things in books. You love things in the sky. Birds, airplanes and helicopters.

love you buddy

Gosh, those are amazing pictures! They really show what a character he is becoming. I can't wait to see him in person again!

To mirror Lori, those were great pictures. Walking is not far off, and there will be no turning back. Lots of fun ahead.
