I am not quite sure what happened for him to make this face, but isn't it adorable??? This was taken at one of our many stops on the way up to Washington. It is so different traveling with our little guy. He was AMAZING on the trip, but we are just used to barely stopping for any reason.
One of the most wonderful things about Washington is the rain. I LOVE IT!!! The day of the fair it rained almost all day. It stopped just in time for the concert. Nathaniel looked so cute all bundled up!
We were so excited to visit the church we served at in Oak Harbor. On the way home, we took Nathaniel on his first ferry ride!
He absolutely loved looking at the water!
If there is one thing I have learned as a mom, naps are mom & baby's lifeline! The first 2 days he struggled sleeping in a new environment...that means we ALL struggled! I caught the tale end of his ultra-short nap.
I just love this mischievous little face!!! :-)
I finally got a great one with Nathaniel and his Great-Grandma.
==================================================OH!! I almost forgot one of the most exciting things that has happened since I last posted. NATHANIEL HAS 2 BOTTOM TEETH!!!! I check his mouth every morning. I checked the morning of the fair, and for some reason, (probably do to excess drooling) I checked that same evening before the concert. I couldn't believe it! I was ecstatic and almost in tears I was so happy. My little boy is growing up!
The very next day, we were celebrating my wonderful sister's birthday, and again, there was buckets of drool pouring out of Nathaniel's mouth. After checking, it was confirmed. Yep, toothy #2 decided to join up with his next door neighbor, toothy #1!
At any moment, Nathaniel will be crawling. He is already inching forward (while trying to reaching the dog crate), and continues to roll all over the entire floor.
I can't believe that one week from today he will be 9 months old. I am looking forward to his 9 month check up on the 17th. We know he has gained some weight (my aching arms tell me that everyday), but he is growing so tall!
As a gift for Nathaniel adoption, a dear church member gave us a gift certificate to have a professional photo shoot. The certificate covers the session and 5x7's. We are so excited!
Thanks for keeping up with us!
(PS, the reason for this delayed post is because we, once again, had problems with our memory card...only now we are pretty sure the problem is the card reader for the computer. We think we have a solution now.)
