Nathan is 23 months old!

Nathan turned 23 months old last Friday.  He's really grown so much this summer.  He is now speaking in 4-5 word sentences.  We are having conversations about everything!  He still adores Emma and loves to play with her.  He loves dinosaurs and is always asking me to draw him a dinosaur.

One of my favorite words he says is "vamp", for elephant!  Sometimes he says "el-vamp", but either way it's cute!  He really likes to pretend to be different animals.  He will hop like a frog and say "ribbit", and hiss like a snake!  He also pretends to be a monkey, hopping around saying "oo-oo"!  He has even strapped a soft collapsable laundry hamper to his back and said that he's a turtle.  He is so creative!

We went ahead and turned Nathan's car seat around to face forward in the car.  He really likes it and enjoys telling us what he's looking at out his window.  He'll see a bus and scream "Bus! SEE IT!" He also likes taxi cabs and calls every yellow car a taxi.

He loves to run and jump, and asks us to watch him run or jump.  He loves an audience, it kind of reminds me of someone else who likes to show off!  He is a very sweet and loving boy, always giving hugs and kisses to us.  We are so lucky to have him in our family!
