A little more of Nate!

"Can you see me? I am trying to blend in with the couch in my new church duds. Don't forget to check out the open-toed sandal action. You gotta love the bugs on the bottom. Mom just had to have a picture of me in my very first pair of shoes."
"We're going where? A church picnic? Oh, that must be why mom put this silly hat on me!"

"Okay, I really don't know what to think of this thing called 'tummy time', but I am giving it some serious effort this time. I just can't figure out why this blinding flash of light seems to amuse mom and dad."

"There it is again, that blinding flash of light. When I get big enough, I am going to escape to the other room just like our dog, Dexter, does. He must know something that I don't."

First Portrait Session

Nathan had his first portraits taken one day shy of his 1 month birthday on May 12, 2007. He did a great job! The pictures came in a few days ago and I have been trying to find time to get a few of them posted for you to see. He went without clothes and diaper in several of them, and Sam and I are very grateful that there were no surprises coming from the southern region ;-).

Safe and secure in daddy's strong arms!

Mommy just can't quit admiring her sweet boy!

Lunch with Aunt Traci and Grammy

My mommy and I got out for lunch today. We went to the Atlanta Bread Company and to my surprise we picked up Grammy on the way and Aunt Traci met us there. It was such a treat to get to see both of them plus get out of the house for awhile. They love me so much and just can't quit kissing on me. I think my mommy even caught them in the act. Thanks Grammy and Aunt Traci, I had so much fun seeing you.

Mother's Day - 1 Month Old

Yesterday was such a special day. Not only was it Nate's One Month Birthday, it was my very first Mother's Day. I have always wanted to be a mother, and it has taken a while to get here. I always thought I would start my family in my mid to late 20's. Well, God had another plan because I didn't meet the man of my dreams until I was 28, we wed when I was 30, and here I am at 33 celebrating my first Mother's day. Well, I just have to say the wait was well worth it!! I LOVE MY FAMILY! I have the most caring and loving husband ever, and the cutest and sweetest baby a new mom could ever want. They showered me with gifts and love for my special day. There were three gifts: the movie "Happy Feet" from Nathan, a sweet Willow tree figurine of a mom and son from Sam, and a very nice watch from Sam and Nathan.

One Month Check-Up

Hey everyone, Nate here! I thought I would try out this blog thing that all my friends are doing. I went to see Dr. Webb today for my one month check-up (well, I am actually not a month old until Mother's Day--- my mommy thinks that it is so special that we will both be celebrating something that day!) Mommy says I am growing like a weed. Here are my stats for anyone that is interested:

Birth 8 lbs. 15 oz; 20 inches
2 Weeks 9 lbs 6.5 oz (75%); 21 1/2 inches (75%)
One Month 10 lbs 11.5 oz (75%); 22 3/4 inches (90%)

I am having my first portrait session tomorrow. Hopefully, they can capture all my cuteness on film!! Speaking of that, I have to sign off so that I can get some much needed beauty sleep ;-)! Mom says that we will try and post more pictures soon.
