Professional Football

We think Nate may have a career in professional football. Not as a player... but as the ball itself since he LOVES to be carried like one.

6 Months!!!

Nathan Wolf is 6 months old today!

And he is pretty happy about it!

It has been so HOT lately that I thought Nate deserved a frosty treat... a momsicle. For those of you who don't know, a momsicle is a popsicle made out of frozen breast milk. Nate wanted it and didn't want it all at the same time. I am sure it tasted good to him but he was unsure about the temperature. In the end, I think he liked it and even tried holding it himself.

Hummm... what is this?

I dont think I like this!

Well, maybe one more try...

Ok,maybe this isn't so bad when I can do it myself!

5 1/2 Months of Nate

At Nate's last doctor's appointment our little man weighed in at 14 pounds and 25.5 inches long. Wow! He hit all of his 5 month milestones and is otherwise in great shape.

He has expanded his palate beyond rice cereal and breast milk to include apples, pears, peaches, oatmeal, barley, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes and butternut squash. He LOVES them all. In fact he hasn't found a food he doesn't like.

He has also started to play peek-a-boo. When someone ducks behind something and then pops out and says "Peek-a-boo!" Nate ducks down and pops back up at the same time. He doesn't actually say "peek-a-boo" but he giggles hysterically.

It is so amazing to see this little guy acquire all of these new skills.

Here are a few pics of Nate at 5.5 months:

Hard at work

Here, let me do it!

Do I have something on my face?

Nate Wolf Like to Jump... Jump!

5 Months of Nate

At 5 months Nate has developed a few new skills. He can transfer a toy from one hand to the other, he can tuck his knees up under him and propel himself forward (sometimes), he can crab walk by arching his back and digging in his heels, and he is learning to drink water from a sippy cup. Amazing!
