Almost 5 years already??!?!!!?!!!?!?!?

It is so hard to believe that on Sunday August 16th, Nathan will be 5 years old! I was looking through his baby book and remembering the little things he did. Remembering what it was like to be able to pick him up and cuddle him. How he would giggle and coo at me from the bouncy seat. I remember my dad saying "yep, once he gets that little tongue working and forming words, he is never going to be quiet"...or "you are going to be a going concern once you start walking".
All I can say is "AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH!"
I completed a little survey of him on July 19th and wrote down what he said and we took measurements of him too....Check it out:
