Nathan went and sat on Santa's lap for the first time. We expected him to start crying because he has been having separation anxiety and will start to cry when other people hold him, but he did great. We even got him to smile a couple of times (Christopher had to make some silly faces and noises). I think that he was really curious as to what "Santa" was and that kept him from crying. We also lucked out and got to the mall at perfect timing and were the fourth or fifth family in line so we didn't have to wait long. The picture that we have is scanned in so Nathan's hair looks a little green :)
Nathan and I are now doing much better! It isn't fun being sick. I just hope that all of us can stay sick free for the rest of the year. Nathan and I are flying up to Graeagle on Sunday and then Christopher and Lucy will be joining us a couple of days later. We are really excited about it and my mom has said that it has been snowing there and we are looking forward to seeing the snow (just last week it was in the high 70s here!).
Nathan has been working hard on getting up on all fours. He can get up on his hands and knees and will rock back and forth, but then he collapses on the ground. I think that in a month he will be crawling. In case anyone was wondering, Nathan still has no teeth. He is 7 1/2 months old and still toothless. There doesn't seem to be any coming either.
That is it for us. If we don't post next week, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!
