Happy Birthday, Nater Tater!

Nate and His Cake

Well, if you can believe it, the Nater Tater is 3.

It’s been a fun year this past year. Nate went from almost zero verbal communication to full blown sentences. His speech therapy has been amazing to watch and I praise all the great folks who have worked with him so diligently.

Nate’s also turned into quite the computer guru. He can turn on the computer by himself, log in, open a browser and he knows which link will take him to “games.” And if he’s feeling in the mood for a little Disney Toontown action, he asks Mommy or Daddy to “type it” - referring to the password needed to get in (he hasn’t figured out how to do that yet).

    Birthday Roses

    Birthday Roses

    My wife is very smart. Most of you know this by now, but I need to throw that out there because she single-handedly figured out ALMOST everything that was going to happen surrounding her birthday today.

    Now, granted, she told me what she wanted:

    • Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street - We are both huge Depp fans (obviously she more than I for, again, obvious reasons), and have been looking forward to this for a while. I still wish we could have seen it in the theatres, but ah well. The big screen TV will have to do.
    • “If you are going to get me flowers, I want roses: red, orange and yellow.” - Well, this blew part of my plan, as I had already placed an order last weekend for her usual favorite: purple irises. Thankfully I was able to call and cancel it since they hadn’t left yet. But, she knew, somehow…and here’s the kicker. She wanted the roses from Safeway or King Soopers. WHAT?!?! I thought she was crazy. But I forgot that one little thing: my wife is smart!
    • “I’ve got dinner covered.” - Again, ruining part of my plan. I had secretly talked to Cathy to make sure she could babysit, then I was going to pick up dinner from one of the places close, so that Delphine didn’t have to cook (or Cathy, who is kind enough to watch the kiddos), and so that we could go out. But she already had the big chicken pot pie pulled out and ready to drop in the oven tomorrow afternoon.

    [SIGH] She’s so smart. (more…)
