I'm a Big Boy Now

Nathan is getting so big, he will turn 1 year in a little over a week. His teeth are really close to actually making their appearance, it looks like he will get 6 around the same time, but they have been at this point for about two or three weeks, so who knows when they will put him out of his misery.
He is a fun little guy. He is very active (although he is still too scared to actually walk unassisted) and starting to get more and more verbal. He can say da da and maaaaa, which is not necessarily meant for me, it is just what he says when he is upset and wants something, although I am the one who fixes the problems so maybe it is really meant for me.
He also thinks he is as big as his brothers. He wants to be just like them and LOVES it when they play with him. I am always finding him trying to sit with them on the couch or following them around as they play downstairs. This annoys them a little but usually they just think he is really funny. And his favorite thing to do is play with their toys up in the playroom, their toys are obviously much superior to his own, probably because they are off limits.
Here is a picture of Nathan playing the piano with his brothers, he thinks he is such a big boy. I love how he is on his tip toes and still is struggling to reach the keys.

I threw these next pictures in just for fun. Samuel and Jacob went on a camping trip to our backyard with their daddy this last week. We have been having a very very bad drought here, as is evidenced in our terrible straw-like grass. But this night it was actually a little stormy. The boys lasted through a movie (complete with camping treats, apparently they sucked down a whole bag of gummy bears in just a couple of minutes) and an hour of sleep before they were complaining about the wind and the sprinkling of water, so Alan brought them inside to finish sleeping. It might have been short lived but they were happy and all had a good time.

We are looking forward to some fun visitors coming soon, sooo exciting to see family!

He is not 1 is he??? I thought there was at least another month until his birthday. Wow, I cannot believe it.

What fun and all of your changes with the new house, hope you are loving it, thank you for your cards, you are so thoughtful and I am so forgetful! Thanks!

I can't believe Nathan is almost one year old. It seems like just yesterday that I was there in Waco with you. Actually it seems like it has been too long. Fun Camping in the back yard too! Fun times :D
