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.

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.
