Busy Nathan

The last couple of weeks, Nate has been a busy boy! As you can see from previous posts, we had Pop and Grandma Annie in town for a visit and we have been practicing in the portable lift. Also Grandpa (my dad) and Grandma Judy came over (which they do every other Tuesday) and we all went in the pool. Nate loved watching Grandpa and Owen play! We also had another play date with my friend, Michelle, and her two kids and Stephanie (one of Nate's old nurses) stopped by to see him with her little boy. We all played in the living room and went outside to swing. It was so fun!! But the biggest day of all, was Nate's first trip to the movies! We took him to see Kung Fu Panda and were a little apprehensive about him sitting for two hours and wondering how he would handle the noise. But, he ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! He laughed, made sounds and smiled throughout the whole movie! It was such a treat and is definitely something we will do more of, especially during the hot summer days.

Thanks for checking in!


I'm Holding Nate Again!

We got Nate's portable lift and were able to get him in the living room and I got to hold him!!! Actually, the day before we received the lift, I decided I wanted to try and pick him up and hold him like I used to (on his stomach), so we tried it. We brought the rocker/recliner next to his bed and I picked him up and was able to do it. But it was much easier to use the lift and hold him in the living room facing out and he can see what's going on in the room. Either way, I get to LOVE on him! It has been over a year since I held him and I have missed it so much. He definitely has grown in height and weight, and his head is much bigger too! Trey will get his turn very soon and we look forward to doing it more often.

A Visit from Pop and Grandma Annie

We all had a great time and the boys loved seeing Pop and Grandma Annie!
