Milestone Moment - Forward Movement!

A couple of weeks ago, on April 28th, Nate made his first forward movement!  Since then, he's practicing a lot and has gotten more efficient and is picking up speed.  Amy was able to capture the milestone on video since it occurred at Gymboree.  Yay! 
{Listen carefully and you can hear that he is blowing bubbles the entire time he is moving.  Cutie!}

8 Months {Forever Ago...We are WAY Behind}

Mom of the Year, right here.  Now that Nate is 9 months old, I figured I should finally post his 8 month pics.

Hello Mr. Owl!
 We were in Napa on a little adults-only weekend when Nate turned 8 months old, so Ms. Amy took these pics for us.

They turned out really cute.

And she even got a few of him smiling!

I love this picture--its pretty typical of life right now!  Our little guy is just so full of life and energy, we are constantly on our toes.   He's so much fun, and I love seeing his little personality develop.

We just went to the doctor this week for Nate's 9 month check up, so I will do a full post in a couple of days with all of his stats.

Bathtime Fun

We moved Nate to the big bathtub about two months ago, once he could sit up well on his own.

It is a big hit, and bath time is a favorite activity for all of us.

He loves to splash around!  He's just too cute!

A Trip to the Dallas Zoo

We took a trip to the Dallas zoo with some friends and their two girls.  The weather was perfect and we had a great time.  The Dallas Zoo has really been revamped since Michael and I were kids.

Ready to see the animals!
At the bird show.
Feeding the birds--so cool!
Love this picture!

There's a bird on my big deal.

On the monorail.

Feeding the giraffes.  The best part of our day!
There is no zoom on this shot...the giraffes were that close!

We have a season pass so I'm sure we will be hitting it up again (especially when the weather gets a bit cooler).  We all had a blast!

Mother's Day 2011

We had a nice, uneventful Mother's Day this year.  Michael got up with Nate and let me sleep in a bit, which was awesome.  We hung around the house in the morning, and after Nate's morning nap, we went to Brunch at our favorite restaurant, The Grape.  It was so good! 

Shoes are yummy.

Michael and Nate gifted me with a beautiful heart-shaped locket from Tiffany's.  I love it!  I just need to pick out a picture to put in it. 

It was a great day with my boys!

A little video of Nate waving.  Who knows if this was just an accident or not, but its still pretty cute!
