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!!!!

Nathan's first sippy cup!!

Nathan took to his sippy cup as soon as I gave it to him but he got very little water out of it - he thinks it's just something to chew on! So, we'll keep giving it to him until he figures it out.

Now, let me explain why it was important for Nathan to have this exact sippy cup.

This Avent sippy cup was recommended by his speech therapist for two reasons. First, the liquid dispenser (part of the cup that goes into his mouth) is very similar in texture to his bottle nipples - this can make the transition from bottle to cup easier. Secondly, see those handles? They're removable - so, the cups can grow with Nathan.

Would I have known this without his therapist's expert advice? Ya know, just as a common newbie mommy? Nope!

That picture of him the in basket is SO cute! We used the same kind of sippy cup, and we also had a lot of chewing. Hope he likes it!

I can't believe he is using a sippy cup already. Before you know it he will be turning one. Time goes by so quickly. By the way, I love the picture of him in the basket. He is a cutie.

Awesome!!! Will you try giving him straws to use too? We did this with Gabe right off the hop and he faired out okay. I can't believe how big Nathan is getting and so soon!

We did that same sippy with Curtis. It was great! The basket pic is adorable!
