Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

30 Weeks and Counting!!

Danny and I created this blog to keep everyone informed of Nathan's growth, medical updates, and lots of other little tidbits of information. We will also blog after his birth to keep you all updated on how and what we're up to! This blog will also allow you to see the latest pictures and videos of him. And, so much more! Please feel free to leave comments and/or ask questions. We'll be checking often to respond!

Kandi's Post --
First things first -- We found out at last weeks appointment that Nathan is gaining weight!!! Our little peanut went from being in the 6th percentile to the 10th!!! I now go to my doctor each week for a non stress test (where they monitor the babies heart rate for 30 minutes) and I see a specialist every two weeks who monitors his weight and growth. Just as a precaution.

Our appointment today went very well. The doctor was pleased with Nathan's progress and are just going to keep monitoring him. If his weight drops below the 10th percentile then we'll make other appropriate decisions at that time. I'm convinced he is just a little peanut -- like his mom and dad!!! Oh yeah, and Chopper too! Other than that I am feeling perfectly fine - a little tired at times but that's about it.

The Baby's Room -- thank God for sisters!!!! My sister has been here painting room after room and getting the house in order for Nathan. Danny has to move the bed and dresser out of his room but that will be done this week. Danny moved the office upstairs so that the room off the living room can be Nathan's play room. Well, at least after we've redone that entire area of the house. I figure he won't be crawling for some time so there's no rush.

We haven't purchased the crib and dresser yet but will do that next week. I've picked the set out and it only takes 7 to 10 days for it to come in. I don't have a rocker and am not sure if I should get one. (see the survey)

That's it for this Nathan report. See you all, or at least most of you, on Saturday. I will blog again after the BABY SHOWER and then each week after our appointments!!

Rocking chair...may want to consider a glider version, with padded arms. You will definitely use it!

Kandi this is a great idea. I am so happy for you and Dan, the rocking chair...get it! Really, you will love holding him and rocking him and just looking at him. Glider and glider stool. You will love it. My mom still has her rocker and some day it will be mine. Memories are created everyday, it was such a calming great memorie of mine. I loved it.
See you Saturday!
