two months (actually, two and half, but who's counting). TWO WHOLE MONTHS. the fastest of my entire life, i solemnly swear. since its been a month since i updated you on your doings and beings and feelings, i'll get started:
-you were blessed. it was a simple affair, with both sets of grandparents and aunt and shannon and uncle justin and cousins and your uncles. it was beautiful, and we had a lunch at grandma's afterwards.

-you have spent countless hours in your carseat shuttling children to and from school and church and various activities. mostly you sleep and people peek in at you while you do so. you have attended many baseball games and park days and preschool activities and you don't even seem to mind, which is a good thing because...well, fifth child. sometimes you spend a LOT of time in your seat and therefore a LOT of time sleeping and then you don't sleep well at night, which makes sense...but nathan, i really could use a little sleep at night.
-grandma and grandpa came back to visit and you happily settled into your grandma kristine's arms and stayed there. you also met your grandpa chris!
-you eat, sleep, poop, and occasionally crack a sweet smile. but mostly you eat. you're going to be huge. you've had two growth spurts in the last month, and it means that you've been asking to eat every hour most of the time, including at night. nathan, i have mentioned that i'm exhausted, right? because i am. but also, you're getting huge. you're full of round shapes instead of straight lines, you have fat on your thighs and your arms. your tummy is fat. we glory in this fact. you have a strong spirit, baby nathan.
-you were a model for my friend jessica's knit blankets. aren't they they cutest? we're going to start making some, based off her patterns.
-you are declared the cutest, sweetest, most handsome, best, favorite, etc. baby several times a day. you're still a very popular fellow. we can't help it. nathan, you're the best. we love you.
