Nathaniel news

2009-05-08 2-minute read

It’s been too long since the last blog… Nathaniel and Alice had their latest vaccinations March 24th, the day after Don was laid off from Pason… Nathaniel weighed 21 lbs, and is 75% for weight and 90th for height- the tall Murray! I keep meaning to update Nathaniel’s progress- he knows so many words now!! Here’s the list I can try to think of: Car (has been saying this for months), Truck (“uck”), Plane (“pane”), Alice (“acss”), Mama, Daddy, Bye Bye, Toothbrush (“busch”), Uncle “unco”, Auntie “a-tee”, Cassie “ca-he”, Chase “teace”, meow meow (“mao mao”), puppy, mess, ba ba (for his bottle), wee, two, bo-bo, hug (“ug”), remote (“mote”), dragon (“a-gon”), rock (“ock”), happy “a-py”, no, phone “oan”, toes, hot, motorbike “mo-mo”, uckie, nose, eyes, blackberries “blackie”, noodles “noonoes”, apple “app-o”, ball, horse, owl, book (a new word this week), up, down, go. He learns new words almost daily. He loves to sit and read books, and will often gravitate to the bookshelf while Alice happily watches treehouse. His favorite books are the happy baby words ones, where he can point to things and say what they are. The most important word is “B”, for his blanket- his most worldly possession (I think he loves it more than me!) And now he can put 2-3 words together, ie/ go-go-go (this is what he says as soon as he sees hockey on TV), bye-bye, no no, etc. This week he also learned how to blow kisses–the most adorable thing! And he knows all his body parts and proudly points to them when asked ie/where’s your fingers? He is smart, and I kiss him all day long!!!
