Gator Nation, Baby!

What Nathan thinks about the Gators once again being the National Champs of College Football:

Little Nateman looks great right now, doesn't he? He has had an outstanding week muscle-wise and is starting to stand more and more on his own. I think he will start to take those couple of steps on his own again soon if we can keep him well and looking this good. It is amazing how much progress he is making right now!

We did realize this week that we are going to have to invest in a cooling vest for the little guy before the summer months come as it is not taking long at all for his little body to get steaming hot in the upper-70 degree temps we had at the first of the week. The longer he stays outside, the higher his body temp goes, but the "all-boy" boy loves being outside! Anyone know of any companies that custom-make cooling vests or make them in the toddler sizes?

We are hosting a few girls over for our very first sleepover birthday party for the girls tonight. Am I insane? I think I'll definitely be able to get a clinical diagnosis after this stunt. The girls are so excited they can hardly contain themselves. A week ago, I made the freshman mistake of telling two kids who don't completely understand "time" about the slumber party...each and every day since, I have had to explain how many more days until the big day and why they had to wait so long. Since their awakening this morning, they have been mad-women trying to arrange games and toys for everyone to play with and plan events and activities. I think they'll have a blast!So, we're partying tonight...5 year old style (with a little 3 year old style mixed in...poor middle child). We'll have manicures and pedicures, cupcakes, pizza (because you can't have a party without pizza), chic-flicks, popcorn, a big ole' livingroom fort-tent to sleep under and a whole lot of craziness going on. Come if you dare!

Sounds a little crazy. Not sure if I would be brave enough, but I'm sure everyone will have lots of fun. I loved the last picture of the girls.
