Clearly I'm not trying for Mother of the Year this year. Nathan had a birthday two weeks ago and I still haven't done his birthday blog! Oh you sweet sweet boy. I love you so much and the only reason I haven't blogged yet is because I just can't find the words to say how special you are.
Birthday number 7. This is a big one.
Whenever I do a birthday post I have to put baby pictures in. If nothing else it's just a fun way to show all these cute pictures. Looking for cute baby pictures of Nathan is torturous. They are ALL adorable. Cutest stinking baby ever.
Always been a Twins fan...
always up for a party.
He's still up for a party, so this year we had three of them. Three mini birthdays instead of one big one. My boy was thrilled.
Here he is opening one of his gifts from us. It was a Playmobile ambulance. Super cool. Nathan is very into all things police, fire, and ambulance. Papa and Nana got him the Playmobile Fire Station and it is awesome. We knew the ambulance would be a good fit.
Call it a coincidence, but soon after he opened his present this guy got stuck upside down in his chimney. Not good.
Don't worry...Nathan and his men to the rescue. Check out that tongue. Love.
Our first party was with Uncle John and Aunt Alicia. They came to visit, so we got an ice cream cake and had a party!
The second party was when our family went to Mi Rancho for dinner. Nathan specifically asked to eat here so he could, "wear the big hat." I think he wore it well.
Here he is enjoying the festivities...
And the final party happened when Max, Sara, Will, Greyson, and Tate came to visit the next weekend. When cousins are around you HAVE to have a party...right? And since we were so close to Easter, Nana made the traditional bunny cake this time.
Nathan and Sara, who he calls his best lady, set up a little road and jail for the police cars. It doesn't get any better than that.
This is not a birthday picture, but I have to include it. A week or so before his birthday Nathan and I went to the eye doctor together. We both had to have our eyes dilated during the exam. Nathan thought the sun glasses they gave us were the coolest thing ever. When we were driving away he said, "Thank you so much for the new sun glasses you bought me, Mom! I love them!" We went to McDonalds for lunch and it was very bright in there so he just wore those things proudly. I did not. Maybe I'm a little vain, but not everyone can pull this look off like he can.
This boy is so special. We could all learn a lot from him. God has gifted him with a personality that just lights up a room. He makes people smile. He speaks straight from his heart and has such passion. Nathan sees the good in people. In everyone. He wants to be friends with everybody...no matter who they are. He doesn't care what you look like, how you dress, if you're in a wheelchair or anything else. Nathan sees people's hearts. How many of us can say that about ourselves?
My precious boy....the last seven years have been amazing. God gave me the greatest gift when he made me your mom. I can't wait to see all the amazing things you do in your life.
I love you so much.
