Nathan's first Thanksgiving is today! We are going to my mama's to celebrate. I am sure that I will be back with pictures!

Here are just a couple of pictures from Thanksgiving! I didn't take as many as I wanted. :(

Letter to my six month old boy...

Dear Nathan-

You are 6 months old today! Half a year has come and gone so quickly. It seems like just yesterday that I held you for the first time. Today is a difficult day for mama. Such a bittersweet time.

In six months time you have grown to 20lbs and 28 inches long! You grew out of your infant car seat this month so we had to buy you a new one. You still don't like the car at all! Mama has to ride in the back with you and try to keep you busy with toys. You are starting to sit up better. You seem to get tired of holding yourself up though and just fall over. You have become so frustrated with the crawling situation. You want to crawl so badly! But your poor little arms can't support your weight quite yet. So you have solved the crawling problem by rolling every where! You can roll clear across the room in no time! You still drool all the time. We just aren't sure where your teeth are! You got a new toy for Halloween. It is an exersaucer and you love it! You love to spin all around and jump up and down. You still love nursing. You have invented some new nursing positions this past month! We have started to give you frozen apple slices for you to munch on. You seem to like it. We are going to try solid foods shortly. I have a feeling you won't go for that. You love water though. Mama has been letting you have sips of water from her cup and you love it. You grab onto the cup and guzzle it down! It is too cute. You were baptised yesterday. You did so well! You were so smiley and laughed the whole time. The whole church was amazed at how well you did. And when Gordon said, "I present to you Nathan Cole." You looked at the people and laughed! It was so cute! Mama was so proud.

Saying goodbye at the end of these letters always brings me to tears. My sweet boy is growing so fast. The love I feel for you is so overwhelming. It consumes me daily when I look at you. I often wonder how my heart withstands this much love without bursting. You mean the world to me Nathan Cole. You are my heart and my soul.

Love Always,

Sick with a capital "S"

Ugh....I feel horrible. I have the flu. I am so hoping that Nathan doesn't get it! He should be ok because he is getting all my antibodies from my milk. Thank goodness for breastfeeding at a time like this. Although my supply has decreased because I feel so yucky. So Mr. Nathan is nursing like a newborn! Which is good because I can lay on the couch and do that! Hopefully I feel better for the baptism and Brandon's birthday this weekend.

Speaking of Brandon, he always takes such good care of me when I don't feel well. He went into work early today so that he could come home early to help me. Such a sweetie. Love you honey! :)

P.S. Thank you all for your lovely comments on my little lion!

Tuesday's thoughts

Geez...the weeks just seem to be flying by! November has arrived! The weather here is so beautiful! Nice and sunny; the kind of weather that you can just wear a sweatshirt in. Nathan and I are taking advantage of it because I have a feeling snow and freezing temperatures are right around the corner.

Speaking of November...this is such a busy month for us! Nathan's baptism and Brandon's birthday are on November 11th this weekend. We are looking forward to the baptism because one of Brandon's friends from work is a minister and he is performing the ceremony for us. Our parents are going to church with us and it should be a lovely day.

Then on November 12th, Nathan will be turning 6 months! Mama is already planning on what she will say in his letter. My baby is growing up! *Happy tears*

The week of Thanksgiving, Nathan and I are joining Brandon on a trip for business. It is not too far away but we decided that we didn't want to be apart for that long so Nathan and I are going too! Mama is looking forward to the indoor pool! I can't wait to take Nathan swimming!

When we get back from our mini-trip, we will be leaving again for Thanksgiving at my mama's house. Such a fun day there! The Colts play on Thanksgiving this year so we will be eating good food and watching some football! After that we always put up the Christmas tree. Later that weekend we will be having Thanksgiving with Brandon's parents at our house. Busy, Busy, Busy!

Not too much else to say today, I am just trying to prepare for the busy month coming up! Must run now, nap time!
