No, he's not walking...

Nathaniel isn't walking on his own yet. He still needs to hold on to a hand to go any distance but, if he isn't too frustrated at the time, he will take a few small steps to get to who or what he wants. But it's what he IS doing that is amazing me!

-He is blowing into (and sucking out of) his harmonica!

-He is eating anything we offer him (including stuffed peppers, lemons, etc, etc)

-He is repeating almost anything we ask him to (wow, does he say "clock" clearly!) and saying all sorts of words on his own (baby, bye, Dada, MAMA!!!, out, car, pretty, banana (it only comes out "baaa" but it's the same every time), duck (again, only comes out "du")

-He is showing us his muscles (so, so, so stinking cute!)

-He is raising his arms in the air when we say "Praise the Lord!"

-He is showing us where his head is

-He is trying to sing along to any song he hears and definitely dances any chance he gets

-He is continuing to talk with anyone and everyone who will take the time to talk back (and, often, even those who don't! )
-He is holding both of his toy phones to his ear and trying to talk!

Hmm...I know there is more, but that's what comes to mind. He is simply amazing and I love him, love him, love him!

forget it...

There are so many thoughts running through my mind right now - on everything from mothering to mentoring to cooking (I used a pressure cooker for the first time last night without my mother's help!) to how to write an effecient grocery shopping list. However, I just had unexpected company for lunch and a little one about to wake up. We really need to make it to the grocery store this'll keep this brief. (That seems to be a trend...I really WILL post something more than pictures soon!) Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
So cool!

Nathaniel didn't want to cooperate for a family pic, but I could resist! this is the Savannah airport parking garage! Yes, everything is just lovely here!

Grammy arrived at the airport armed with suckers!
