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!!!!

It was an uneventful weekend in the Terry household because of the extreme temperatures...Nathan spent most of the weekend in the house hanging out with his parents. However, I do have a very funny story to share from therapy this week.

On Thursday, we welcomed back Nathan's speech therapist that had broken her ankle so badly she was out of work for a month. She was excited to see Nathan eating real food like a champ and holding his bottle with two hands!!
Because she had been out for so long she came to the house both Thursday and Friday. The first day Nathan was more interested in looking at Coreen than holding his bottle but on Friday I wasn't having it. So, as he was sitting on her lap I kept putting his hands on his bottle and he kept letting go. Finally, he realized he wasn't going to get away with it any longer so, he decided to hold on. In the meantime, Danny had come home and the three of us are standing in the kitchen chatting when all of a sudden I look to make sure Nathan still had his hands on his bottle and guess what I saw????????
Yep, Nathan putting all the sign language skills that I'm teaching him to good use - letting mommy know just what he thought about having to hold that bottle!!! We were all cracking up! I couldn't believe my eyes. I still crack up looking at this picture!

Nathan is adorable and getting so big! Although I wonder at what age it's no longer cute to be flashing the bird at the camera, intentional or otherwise.

That is SO funny! I guess you won't get away with much around this little guy!

Only an infant could get away with this! And, only because it's not intentional!!!! It wouldn't have been so funny if we weren't having the bottle battle!
