Little Nathan....

We were blessed with an extra gift this Christmas--some information on our little Nathan. We received a very special email with a few choice tidbits such as....

* He wears a size 4T in clothing and a size 8 shoe.

* He started sleeping in a regular bed one month ago and it's reported that he’s sleeping much better now that he’s not in a crib.

* He has also started using the potty! He’s asking to go and everything!

* He’s beginning to talk in 2-3 word sentences such as “give me that”.

I can't tell you how excited we were to get this information! We can't wait to meet this little man....hopefully in February!!!!


  1. That is all such exciting news! Great report! Praying you can go get him soon!

  2. It so awesome to get info on our kiddo's to be!! Nathan is SO cute!! Glad you got such a great update!

    Better start looking for BOY clothes!!! Any ideas on when you will be leaving???? We are very excited about little Nathan!

  4. What a great report on Nathan. That's exciting information to get.

  5. Will you be calling him Nathan? It seems to fit him and your family. He is so stinkin' cute!

  6. Thanks for your encouraging comments, Ladies. If we get our US approval, we hope to travel after Feb. 7th.

    Karla, I am on it....got the coat & snow pants ($10 at Penneys), pjs, and two cute outfits, oh and little socks. Too fun!

    Alice, this is a huge debate at our house! We can't "legally" change his name until we return to the States. So he will be "N...." Burckhard on all his paperwork. (can't put his real name there yet.) We are conflicted as to what to do....I'll keep you posted!

  7. Oh, what a fun new report!! He is SO STINKIN' CUTE!!!
