Nathan IS Michael Jackson!

Nathan's school announced a few weeks ago that they were going to have a lip sync. Songs had to be 25 years old or older so Nathan and I got on YouTube and started looking at some classics...Elvis, Michael Jackson, etc. He decided he wanted to do Thriller by Michael Jackson. Sounded like a good choice to me! We went and bought a CD with the song on it. They were only allowed to do 60 seconds of a song so we chose the first 1:02 which included the intro music and the first verse and chorus. Nathan was really excited about it and practiced lots at school and recruited 2 friends to perform it with him. They were his "zombies"! They did such a great job and were so cute. I used an old long sleeved red t-shirt of Nathan's and black duct tape to create the signature red jacket that Michael Jackson wore in the Thriller video. Here are some great pictures and a video of Nathan's performance. Enjoy!

Jonathan's 1st Day of Preschool

We went to the school a few days before he started to get his paperwork turned in and such. There's a few pics from that day and a bunch from his first day of preschool. He walked right in the classroom on his first day and wanted to jump right into the middle of everything! His teacher said he did great and was happy as could be, for a boy who had to be there in the middle what is usually nap time! He LOVES preschool and we are so excited to see how much progress he is making all the time now!

A few days before...

Road Trip!!!!

In February, we took a road trip to Arizona to see cousin Jacob get baptized. The drive was uneventful and the weekend was fun. Didn't get a lot of pics but here's a few!

Jonathan's 3rd Birthday!!!

On February 8, Jonathan turned 3 years old! What a big boy! We had a great little party with cake and presents and lots of fun! Jonathan got a big boy bed with big boy dinosaur decorations, a sand and water table and lots of fun toys! He had a great time celebrating and we had fun watching him enjoy it!

Last day at Bright Start

Jonathan had his last day of therapy at Bright Start. It was bittersweet. We miss Jamie and Christine (and Loreen and everyone else) so much but we are so thankful to all who were a part of Jonathan's huge progress in his first 3 years of life! Here's some pics from his last day of OT and Speech therapy at Bright Start with Jamie and Christine!

Things Jonathan learned at Bright Start...

PUSHING & PULLING!!! (sometimes at the same time!)

HITTING!!! (appropriately of course!)

Exhausted at the end of Therapy but not too exhausted to POSE!!!

Thank you to everyone at Bright Start who made my little guy work so hard and gave him such a great jump on life!
He wouldn't be where he is without any one of you!
