Nate The Great

I admit that when we named Nate, I planned on rhyming his name with "great" a lot, perhaps excessively, but what else am I supposed to do when he deserves it so much?  Nate started taking steps on his own when he was about 9 1/2 months old.  Here is a video of him walking with assistance about a week or two before his first real steps.

Just last week, at 10 1/2 months he started really walking on his own.

As stated in the video he talks ALL the time and amazingly enough a lot of it is intelligible.  He's said mama and dada for month and months, but just this past three weeks he has had a language explosion.  He can say hi, thank you, welcome, oh yeah (this one IS as cute as it sounds), Elijah, Ganna, ball, wow and whoa (kinda the same as wow) all of these words he has said on more than one occasion and I am sure he know what they mean, he can also wave and sign more and finished.  He has also said "here you go" (as he was handing people things), and I love you, but while he said them several times one night, he hasn't repeated them more than that day so I'm not counting them as official words he knows.  Here is a video taken this week of him walking and waving.

Yep, Nate is pretty darn great!
