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!!!!

BYE BYE - Mama!

Nathan has begun to wave bye bye all on his own!

We were told by his speech therapist two weeks ago that we needed to really work on this. Nathan had been waving but we had to hold his arm up but not anymore!

Saturday morning Danny brought him down for breakfast and he was waving and then just seconds later he said "Mama!"

We were shocked! It was 6:00am and he'd been awake for minutes and he just started performing! So, he now says dada and mama. I'm thrilled!

Isn't that just the best sound in the world? Way to go, Nathan!

WOWZERS! Nathan is doing really -- and I mean really! -- awesome!!! Honestly, both my husband and I are having the best time with Gabriel lately. He's talking so much and even though it can be a challenge to figure out what he's saying (He's dropping some first letter consonants...) it's all worth it!

Nathan is certainly well on the path of speech! Way to go, Nathan!
