Life with a boy

Seeing Nate do "boy things" has been one of the most exciting and scary things to witness. He's fearless...especially around water. My good friend here in town who has a nice pool and the friends at the pool/birthday party last Saturday will attest to Nathan's love of water. We have to watch him closely around water because he will dive in without even thinking twice...scary kid. He also loves dirt and sticks and rocks and bugs and will be carrying at least one or more of the aforementioned in his hand (or mouth or ears) about 85% of the time you see him. He also loves to throw things...balls and sticks and dirt and rocks...anything, really. He's all boy, I tell ya. And I love having little sticks around the house mingled in with the princess shoes and naked baby dolls.

This poor little "all-boy" boy is a little under the weather today. His eyes started getting goopy as the day wore on yesterday (sorry, all you Macclenny church-goers). A quick trip to pediatrician this morning revealed what we were thinking: pink eye...and a round of antibiotic drops. He should be good to go by the start of our annual meeting at church this weekend, and we have given the girls strict instructions that they are not to lick his eyeballs for fear that they may indeed get the pink eye plague themselves.

Oh Amber he's precious! There is just something so sweet about watching little boys be boys. It's different for me then to see Audrey be a priss, it tugs at my heart a little more I think!
And James is the same way about sticks, and dirt and especially bugs!!(He get's way to excited when he see's a bug!)Sounds like Nathan and James will get along great if we can ever get them together!!

He is so cute, Amber! It's so good to see him walking, laughing and playing. I hope his eyes heal quickly.
