Hamburger Reunion

We were able to see the Hamburgers a couple times this month and it was really fun to connect with them again.  Unfortunately we forgot to take pictures of any of the adults but we captured some of the Nathan's playtime with Wesley and Lucas (Jack was asleep)!

Last Pre-Nathan Birth Layouts

I know that it is August, but I just finished a number of Christmas layouts from Christmas 2014. This first one includes elements that were inspired by Creative Embellishments' mood board: the circular swoops for the roller coaster and the boughs. 

This second layout is for Stuck?! sketches' August 1 sketch.

And this layout is based on a Stuck?! sketch too -- the August 15 sketch!

My final Christmas 2014 layout is based on the scrappy friends sketch and I also used border strips!

And last but not least is the final pre-Nathan birth layout ever -- our 2014 Thanksgiving at home that I completed for CSI's case 208:

Nathan's First Day of "School"

I can't believe it -- Nathan started "school" (day care) today!  He is now going to day care twice a week and will be at home the rest of the week.  Doesn't he look like the cutest little guy with his backpack?!?  Despite a tearful goodbye, Nathan had an amazing first day, having lots of fun and even napping well!  What a big boy.

When You're Happy & You Know It

Nathan is a happy little guy (the vast majority of the time anyway!) I love seeing him smile and hearing his sweet baby laugh.

He likes the song "If You're Happy & You Know It," and has been clapping along for quite some time.  Just this past week, he has been doing the "stomp your feet" part, with his own adorable signature style.  This is seriously too cute to miss out on:

Fun Nathan Videos

I wanted to share a few videos that show fun things Nathan has been up to lately.  Nathan loves vehicles of all kinds, and in this video, he is making a siren noise while Jesse is reading him a book with a fire truck on it!

And in this video, you can see Nathan making a huge mess while doing a pretty good job feeding himself!  Such a big boy!

As you can see in this last video, Nathan has now got a hang of his sit toys!  Take a look of him scooting around:
