On Thanksgiving we went to visit Santa at Bass Pro Shop. We went with Grandpa Steve and Grandma Lark as well as Brooke & Joe and kids who came to visit for the holiday. It was really fun. I was worried Nash would be nervous of sitting with him, but no he loved him! Once he saw his cool beard (which was real) he was all about him. He reached for him and sat right in his lap (and pulled his beard). It was so cute. 

They also had a carousel with reindeer. Nash loved it!

Nash Catch-Up

Nash has been doing some cute little things lately. I was talking to Taylor about how I really need to write some of it down, because there's no way I'm going to remember all the small things he does.  He told me I could blog, which I laughed to. But he's right. I don't think any one really reads blogs anymore, thanks to the wonderful invention of Instagram (which I love). I don't want to fill everyones feed with pictures of Nash, so I'll do it here, even if no one sees it. This way i can remember all the cute things my sweet boy learns and does from day to day. And I think Nash will like to know some of this stuff when he's older.

So for now it's catch up time, here's a few recents...

Nash got his first 2 teeth while we were visiting Grandma and Grandpa in Oregon in August (6 months old). He cried one night for so long and nothing would soothe him. We had no idea what was wrong. He finally passed out and the next morning there was a tooth! We were shocked. A few days later, the other bottom one came in.

Nash got 4 teeth on top a few weeks later. He took it like a champ.

Nash started scooting around the house at about 8 months. He's a full on crawler now. He loves to pull himself up and climb on stuff. He's getting braver and letting go with one hand when he's standing. It's wont be long before he gets even more gutsy and lets go all together.

Nash loves to eat. The only thing he hasn't liked so far is carrots. He loves all fruit, especially mandarin oranges.  We started feeding Nash solids around 5 months and it didn't take him long to figure it out. He recently started on more people food like chicken nuggets, french fries and spaghetti-os, which he loves. I was worried he'd be a picky eater because Taylor was as a child, but so far, so good.

Nash likes to mimic us. He thinks it's a game. We'll cough and then he'll cough. This will go back and forth over and over. He'll just keep fake coughing. He's always had a little fake cough that he does. He's kinda goofy like that, pretending to cough.

Nash is so sweet, but he is not a snuggler. I think we can count on one hand the times he actually snuggled and they haven't lasted long. He's just too busy for it! He's always on the move. He wants to go and be everywhere. Church is particularly tricky, because he can't sit still, plus there are so many people and things to see and investigate.  Last week was the first time in months we didn't have to take him to the foyer. It was a shocker.

Nash is big! He's consistently been in the top 3% of babies in height, weight and head circumference since about 2 months.  At his 6 month wellness check he weighed 22 pounds and the Dr. said he was the size of an 11 month old. Last week at his 9 month wellness check he weigh 25.5 pounds and was 31" long, the size of the average 16 month old.

Nash loves to go on walks in the stroller. We like to walk to the park where they have the baby swings. He loves the swings! He just giggles.

Nash's has recently mastered his first word, which is Mama. He is now working on Dada. He also is pretty good at playing peek-a-boo and high five.

Nash loves the bathtub. He takes a bath every night. He kinda goes crazy in the tub! He splashes us so much and we're usually as wet as him by the end. He's just so excited about it.

Nash is starting to have an interest in tv. When he was a few months old he would lay on the couch and stare at the tv, but now he's really into it. He especially likes Sesame Street, it mesmorizes him. He loves when people sing too. When there are musicals in church he always stops what he is doing and stares at them. He also likes to sing in the car with me. He can't say anything, but I would definitely says he's singing. It's a crack up. Maybe we have a future musician on our hands.

Nash gets to go to his Aunt Lyndsay's house 2 days a week, when I go to the office to work. He's always excited to go and I know he has fun with his cousins Claire and Henry. Claire is a good babysitter. I'm so blessed to have them watch Nash, so he dones't have to do to a day care. I couldn't be more grateful.

Nash is such a joy to have. I'm so blessed to have such a sweet boy. He loves to laugh and have fun and be kinda goofy. Taylor thinks he has my personality, but he definitely has Taylor's looks. They're twins! Taylor is such a good daddy. He was saying the other day that Nash is his best buddy ever. He's so sweet to him.

Okay that's all. I'm glad I did this. I really do want to remember all these things about him.

Some recent tricks....

4 Months

Nash is 4 months old, I can hardly believe it, time is going by so fast! We love this little guy so much!

Nash's favorite things to do is definitely talk! He's always talking, talking talking. He also loves to look around at everything and try to get his hands on everything, and then into his mouth. He so smiley and such a happy guy.  He's giggled for us a few times and I can't wait until he can do it more often.

At 4 months Nash weighed in at 18 pounds 11 oz! The nurse was shocked when we put him on the scale. He is 26 1/2 inches long so he's a big boy in that way too! He's in the 90th percentile all the way around.  I just love all his rolls!

Here's some cute pics of him, if my Instagram feed of Nash wasn't enough for you ;).

Nash's Blessing

Last Sunday we were joined by tons of family as Taylor blessed Nash.  It was a very sweet blessing.  Afterwards we had a yummy brunch and got to visit with our family.  Here are some pictures from the day, unfortunately I didn't get my camera out until a lot of people had left.  Thanks to everyone who came and supported our family.
