Letter to my 15 month old boy...

Dear Nathan,

Today you are 15 months old! Time is just racing by. Before we know it, fall will be here! I can't believe that you are already 15 months old. You are getting to be so big!

This past month has been so exciting for us all. The biggest thing has been our move. Mama and Daddy bought a house! And we moved from the house where we brought you home. :( It was such a bittersweet day. On one hand, we knew that we were moving toward a bright future. We were going to a place where you could grow up and run and play. But it was hard to say goodbye to the house where you spent the first year of your life. Your Daddy painted that nursery a week before you were born. We brought you home from the hospital and fell in love with our sweet baby boy in that house. We paced the floor with a fussy newborn. You and I cuddled and nursed for hours on end in our comfy bed. You learned to crawl and took your first steps in that house. So it was hard for us to leave. But we know that our future is in this house. You have made the transition so well. And I really think that you like it here. This past month you have learned some new things! You love to climb on things now! You are always climbing on furniture and in the shower. You are especially fond of our new fireplace. You like to scare Mama by climbing on the bricks. You have learned how to give people things. You are all the time bringing Mama things and you get so excited when I say "Thank you!". You try to bring everyone something. It is really cute. This past month we also went on your first plane ride! We went to Baltimore, Maryland to Zach and Sara's Wedding. We had a great time and you were such a good boy! We also went to visit Grandma Kay and Grandpa John and went to Holiday World with Grandma and Uncles Ben and Tommy! It was so much fun! You did great and really loved it! You love water. You like to pour it and splash around. It is so much fun to watch you enjoy yourself. You just laugh and laugh.

15 months has gone by in the blink of an eye. You are such a toddler now. It is amazing to watch you learn and grow every day. We love you Nathan Cole. You are our world. And we look forward to watching you grow up in our home. We are so proud of you.
