Nathan and I went to Alamo today to visit the family. We didn't get to see Bay but got to see Dad and MoDear. For the record, MoDear's house was freaking HOT!!!! Holy crap. It was warm and as you can see from the pictures, Nathan fell asleep in MoDear's arms. He did pretty good except for he wouldn't nurse. He's so easily distracted these days!

Christmas Eve

This picture is actually from yesterday. It was really cold and we were going to take cookies to the neighbor.

Waiting for Uncle LJ to finish texting.

Hanging with papa!

Did someone say teeth?

Gizmo is actually pretty good about handling the baby. He grabs her fur and pulls but she just tolerates it. I have a feeling she's gonna freak when he gets really mobile!

Teeth and all that

Yeah, can you believe it? Nathan has a tooth nugget coming in. Yesterday he was drooling like a nut case, and spitting up every three seconds. Then after about the 8th bib Robin asked if we had checked for teeth. So we checked and TEETH! Holy crap! I know it's about time but I can't believe it's actually time.

We got him moved to his big boy car seat since he grew out of his infant seat. It took LJ and David to get that damn seat in there. I almost had to go to the fire station to get some help but they managed to get it in. It's not going anywhere! I guess we need another one for David's car because we don't want to have to move it.

He's doing a great job of sitting up. Most of the time he can sit up for a long time, but sometimes he takes a header straight into the floor. He hit his face on the tile this morning and was not happy. We have found the boppy is great for making sure he doesn't hit his head falling backward.

We have also mastered the sling with side sitting. It takes so much strain off of my back! I wish we had mastered it earlier but such is life. Now I will have something to use when we go shopping since he's not in his portable car seat.

Well, that's all for now. I will post some pictures later, maybe with him posing with all his gifts. His dad went a little crazy at Toy's R Us. Pretty funny.

Long week

Lots of thing have been going on here, not all of them good, some of them down right awful, but I don't want to drag everyone down with the details. Instead, I', just gonna show you some pictures. Nathan has been doing a great job acclimating to sweet taters and peas. He has some stinky poo though. Today he had a little banana. He is now regularly rolling from back to tummy, and tummy to back. It's just a matter of time before he starts sitting up on his own and crawling! I look back at pictures and it's just crazy how fast time has flown by....

Nathan and Tater chillin' on the bed. They were closer but Nathan touched Tater's paw and Tater freaked a little.

Nathan sitting up all by himself.

Nathan taking a bath. He just moved from the infant sink tub to the rubber duckie tub. Stupid tub deflates so we have to blow it up every night.

Nathan rocking his Swedish onsie.

He has a special turkey day outfit. Hopefully it still fits on Thursday. He is about 21 pounds now and wearing 9 month stuff. Crazy huge kid.

Nathan's First Meal

So the little man has been especially hungry the last week so we decided to go ahead and start solid food.  I made him some sweet potatoes thinned with boob juice.  He's not quite sure what he's supposed to do with it but he ate a good sized portion.  Next up, pictures of his poop!  Just kidding.

Not gonna happen!

I was going to try and post every day for the month of November, but as you can tell, that has not happened.  Bummer. 

We had a good weekend with camel (mom) here.  It just sucks how fast it flies by.  Today he took a really long nap by himself.  That doesn't happen very often!  Then he took a long nap with me.  That was nice.  I was tired.  He used to sleep until 8:30 on the weekends but since the time change he is awake at 7.  I guess this is how life is gonna be for a while.  We busted out the baby bjorn and took a tour of Target.  He seemed to really like it.  He got excited seeing all the people.  He kicked and screamed.  I thought the screaming was funny, but I doubt everyone there agreed with me!  They will get over it. 

The new sitter seems to be going really well.  He is playing with the 4 month old there.  He has a swing there that he really likes.  I like it too but we aren't going to get one.  It only works up to 25 pounds and he is almost there.  Luckily he has slowed down on the growing.  I made his first food today. We are saving it for Turkey day.  He's going to have sweet potatoes.  Mom and I bought the potato at the Farmer's Market.  I hope he likes it.
