Nathan just turned seven months old, and I’m resolving to back on top of blogging, and not just for monthly updates.

At seven months, Nathan is much like he was at six months. He still has no teeth, shows no signs of crawling, and eats well. I just recently decided he could eat a solid food “lunch,” but only fixed a small amount of food as he seemed content and not hungry when he didn’t have lunch. He ate everything quickly, and I went to put his bowl in the sink. When I returned, Nathan was waiting with his mouth open, ready for more!

I think Nathan will be a later crawler, like his brother. He’s not really a fan of being on his stomach, and while he will roll to get things he wants, once he has them, he’ll play on his back or cry until you put him in a sitting position. He has started to occasionally purposefully move from sitting to his stomach to retrieve some coveted item, but he does not do so with any amount of grace.

Since Christmas, coveted items include wrapping paper (the cheaper and easier to tear the better), bows, and best of all, tissue paper. Besides all the paper, Nathan’s favorite Christmas gifts were all the baby food pears Santa brought him and the stacking cups (reminiscent of bowls, another favorite) from his aunt and uncle.



Just a 20-something girl living on the East Coast, trying to figure out life. I'm a wife and mom to two. I'm trying to rediscover my love for long walks, yoga and pilates. But not hiking. I still don't like hills. I was raised at the beach, but I don't like the beach. I like to look at it, but I don't like to swim in it, I'd prefer a pool, thanks. I'm just trying to become the best person I can be -- the woman God wants me to be. That's easier said than done!

Hubby is my all-time favorite guy. A perfect mix of serious, sarcastic, laid-back, handy and nerdy, he is the perfect complement to me. I love his strong work-ethic and the way he always loves and supports me through everything. Some of Hubby's favorite things include: hiking, Virginia Tech football, woodworking, and his family. When I married him in July 2007, I had no idea what an amazing journey we were headed on, and how I could come to love him so much more each day.

Our oldest, Colton, is three years old. He is equal parts sassy and hysterical. He loves all things train, car, bus, truck, and machine related. He has a penchant for made-up words and loves to be the clown of his pre-school class. Our younger son, Nathan, was born this May. He is pure joy and full of smiles! He is such a blessing and a perfect fit for our family.
