What we’ve been up to

I already wrote about the yuckiness of our year so far, but we’ve had some nice moments too. And of course, this post should really be titled, “What Nathan has been up to” because it’s all about him! Here’s the past month or so in pictures:

One of Nathan’s favorite things to do lately is “wash” things. He makes such a big mess but it makes him so happy.

Nothing more fun than playing in a big box!

And what came in this big box, you might ask?

A new vacuum for mommy!

It’s smaller than our old one, but oh so much better.

Nathan has also finally decided he likes to sit down and do activities. His favorite thing to do is paint. Sometimes it only lasts 5 minutes, I love that he sits still for even that long.

We had a couple of nice days in January and made sure to spend some time outside in the sunshine.

I caught Nathan lounging on the couch and watching a movie on our Ipod the other day. He has quite the life!

I usually leave Nathan downstairs with a show on while I take a quick shower, but the other day, he decided to join me- with his clothes still on!

I found this great Buzz Lightyear Rocket tent for 75% off and couldn’t resist it. Nathan loves to play in it and apparently fill it with cooking utensils.

When we were outside the other day, I got a great video of Nathan doing all the animal noises he knows. Then, I realized I had accidently taken the whole thing sideways (we’re really tired over here) so this video is attempt two. You can tell he’s thinking, “Mom! I just did this!”

Do you see how short and grown-up his hair is in the last pictures? I seriously teared up every time I looked at him for the first week after we cut it.

Put on the sideways video - we want to hear the noises - doesn't matter that it is sideways. I agree, he does look all grownup with that haircut. Avery likes to wash everything in our bathroom sink here too. Thanks for the update!!
