Tate has been doin the army crawl for a few months now, but just this weekend he learned that he can actually get around on his hands and knees. I thought he might skip over crawling, but he finally did it! And, now we can't get him to stop. He is always moving or climbing. He wears me out!!
This video was the second time he crawled on his hands and knees. (After the first, I ran to get the camera. I had to entice him with my laptop to do it again!)

This is always a debate between Nathan and I. Nathan thinks Tate doesn't look like him much, but now we know it isn't true. Tate is almost a perfect mixture! Do you agree? Who do you think he looks more like? (And, just because he is very white doesn't mean he looks just like me!!) :)

I know that I am completely behind the rest of the world, but I just finished reading the third book in the Twilight series. I started the first, Twilight, last week when we were on vacation and have been crazy-obsessed ever since. Nathan had told me awhile ago that everyone at his work was reading these vampire stories and I was not impressed. I am not so much into reading things about vampires. BUT, nobody told me about the LOVE!! Holy cow there is so much love in these books that I have been going insane between being so excited and then bawling my eyes out. I do love love. So, I finished the third book a few minutes ago, and I can't handle it. I ordered the fourth book a few days ago and purposely had it delivered in a week so that I can have some sort of life in the mean time. I haven't been able to do anything since I started reading these books, including sleep. I stay up all night reading and then dream all night about Edward and Bella. Nathan asked me today when I was going to be normal again. I told you I am a freak. At least I am not alone....the more I talk to people and look online, the more freaks I find, Twerds as I heard them called. I can't wait for the movie now!!!!

Tater boy is ten months old today! I cannot believe that he will be one so soon! Where does the time go? Well, Tate is a busy boy these days. He can get around the house with his half crawl/ half scoot moves. He could spend all day walking around with anyone who will hold his hands. He loves to climb and get into everything. He says Dada and Mama, even though most of the time he still calls me Nana. He gives kisses and hugs and just started waving the other day. He is such a funny little boy and so expressive, as indicated by our "Faces of Tate" photo shoot today. I love to watch him make his little faces...they remind me of Nathan. He is definitely entertaining and we know that we are in for a wild ride with this kid!!

We just got back from a great trip to Palm Desert, California. We went to Nathan's family's (his aunt and uncle's) timeshare. It was SUPER hot, but so much fun. It was great to just relax and hang out. Tate experienced a lot of firsts on this trip: his first plane ride (he did GREAT!), his first trip outside of Utah, and his first time swimming. Tate loved swimming, after he got used to it. At first, he covered his ears (which he does when he is scared). But, after he got over that, he was a swimming fool. He would have stayed in there all day. He also loved his little raft. He would just lay back and cross his litttle feet and lounge. It was a great trip and we are sad that it is over. This was one vacation I wasn't excited for it to end!!
