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!!!!

2.5 and Counting: Celebrating All of Life's Moments

The Terry Family spent the last 10 days at camp, and it's a good thing Nathan has therapy or we'd never come home! While at camp we celebrated Nathan's half-birthday. For those of you who are new to our blog, we've celebrated Nathan's half-birthday since he was born. This year we invited our camping neighbors over and enjoyed some cake and sang Nathan, the half-birthday song!

This picture is from Nathan's first half-birthday. The birthday crown was given to him from my Aunt Kathy, and it's tradition that he have his picture taken with it on each July 2nd celebration. These pictures are from Nathan's second half-birthday, which we also celebrated at Alpine Lake last year.

He's getting so big! YIKES.

I've included a few pictures here just for Nathan's therapists. Look at how well he's doing self feeding! We've been practicing a lot at camp because the mess outside doesn't bother me and there's a door to the bathroom right behind Nathan. One night we had to strip him down outside and put him right in the tub!

Probably not the best fork to use but it was the only one we had at the time. :-)

We also had cake the following night and it was more fun watching Nathan than eat our own cake.

I love this picture. Messy boy with the biggest smile!!

We love you Nathan!!! xoxoxo Mommy & Daddy
