Scoot Scoot

There are a lot of can'ts in Nate's life. Nate can't:

Breathe on his own
Eat by mouth
Crawl, stand, or walk
Get his own toys out or even play with most toys without help
Laugh or cry audibly
Go swimming
Play on playgrounds or in sandboxes
Go to church with us, or to any crowded place

And that's just an abridged version. Basically he just has a lot of limitations. We try not to let them define him but they do influence everything we do. So we really appreciate all he can do and are especially excited when Nate gains a new ability.

Nate's latest and greatest trick...scooting! He's figured out how to get onto his tummy and do a little army crawl. It's slow and awkward and he can't get too far before he gets tired but he's proud of himself and so are we! He's awesome.
