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!!!!

The Mother of All Video Posts!

Summer has arrived in New York!! Now, let's hope it sticks around for the next 4 months without too much rain. I recently upgraded my phone to the new 4G iPhone, which means I have all sorts of new features; including a video camera and the ability to take pictures in HD! So, I've been putting it to good use. The only drawback, if there is one, is that the video doesn't fill the screen unless I turn the phone sideways.

Here are a few videos from hippotherapy. Nathan's doing very well - his stamina on the horse is improving, he's sitting up straighter, and able to do more, like play basketball from the saddle!

A few weeks ago, Nathan and I went to the Greek Festival and he was terrified of the Gladiators! hehe.

Summer means spending lots of time at the Lake and enjoying the company of friends and family.
Last week, Nathan's cousin Lily came up for a visit and it turned out to be more than just fun. As you may recall, Nathan has never like the swing - ever. Well, that all ended the moment he saw his cousin get on and go for a ride. Now, he likes both the tire swing and toddler/baby swing. Super cool!!
 Last year, Nathan also didn't have the motor plan to climb up the ladder on the jungle gym and go down the slide without the support of an adult. I remember how heartbreaking it was to watch him struggle with what other toddlers found to be "child's play." This season, he's doing it by himself! I tried to get a video of him climbing, but as you'll see, it didn't quite work out that well. :-)
The commencement of summer, also means the start of a few of Nathan's favorite things ~ dance parties and swimming! He does a lot more running than dancing and a lot more jumping than swimming, but it's all good!
