Melts My Heart

Can't tell you how thrilled I am that when I look at Nate and say "smile" he actually gives me a beautiful toothy grin.  What a love.

Other developments in The World According to Nate:

  • New favorite word: "that" -- repeated over and over and over.  With pointing.
  • Still loves looking at books and hugging his stuffed animals, especially "Tiger."
  • Walking!!  Prefers we hold his right hand when he walks.  And only on his toes.
  • One day, he's a great eater.  The next, he only wants crackers and fruit.
  • We'll say "no touch" and he responds mischeviously, "touch??"
  • Cries if we don't go visit Auntie Ruth (his great-great Aunt) every day.
  • Loves/fears the neighbors' cat, Chip.
  • Dances on's a bobbing up-and-down kinda dance.
  • If you're not careful, he'll quickly pull his dirty diaper over his head while you're changing him.  Eww.
  • Says "dad" or "da."  No "mama" yet.
  • Still terrified of the vacuum and DustBuster.

I love his little walk on his tippy toes- sooo cute :) And I love that he hugs his stuffed animals- that makes me smile.
