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!!!!

Elmo Visits the White House (and some other stuff)

It's extremely rare when I'm able to combine some of Nathan's favorite things with mine, but this week, on my birthday, Elmo visited the White House to talk about healthy foods in school!
As you might imagine, Nathan was elated to watch his favorite character talk with Chef Sam. I love this level of creativity in policy delivery. It's genius actually. Look, I've put it in Nathan's blog and you've just watched it. That's preciously what you want when you're marketing your victories in policy making.

There isn't much to report from the past week. Nathan's been sick the entire week and we've not taken him out to do much of anything in this weather. He even missed his last two hippotherapy sessions because of the cold. Last Sunday, we were scheduled to have brunch with Santa, but Nathan slept through the entire window of opportunity, which was fine. It's always better that he rests when he's not feeling well. We'll have brunch with Santa another time.

He did manage to make some Christmas cards for some special people in his life.

This is Nathan's favorite Christmas book. It was a gift from his Occupational therapist last year and we must read it and open the flaps 10 times a day! :-)

In our next post, Christmas snow globes and an update on Nathan's transition from Early Intervention to CPSE. Mommy's taking on a new role.
