Nathan's Aunt Kathy has been the recipient of his crying and she was feeling pretty bad about it until the therapists gave us some counsel and advice on how to handle these situations. Unfortunately, Nathan is beginning to associate his Aunt with mommy leaving so, we've had to make a concerted effort to change our behavior and simply visit without mommy leaving.
Funny story - the other day, we went over to my sister's so she could go run an errand and as she was leaving she waved bye to Nathan and he started clapping and smiling! Like, yeah mommy is staying and Aunt Kathy is leaving!!! bye bye It was cute.
Look at this child ~ standing all by himself! I tried to get some video of him taking steps but the battery on the video camera was dead! It's charging as I type this. I'll have video in the next few days.
We're in the market for a camper and today while shopping, Nathan was testing out the fishing boats! We love camping and would like to do more of it. We're really not sure what to buy - we don't want a big camper or to spend a lot of money but we would like to have a bathroom. Just something to make lots of fun family memories in (that's warm and dry).
When I first saw this cheerio on Nathan's forehead I immediately thought of the caste system in India! Don't ask me why. If you aren't familiar with that system it's used in India to basically determine a person's social status. Nathan has been accepted into the banana nut cheerio caste and therefore, granted all rights and privileges as such. (disclaimer - the caste system has been outlawed in the Indian Constitution although, still recognized in rural India.)
