When we found out about Nate's...well...existence, we went about finding a name for him. We liked the name his birthmom had given him, but it as very similar to a couple relatives' names, and we just thought it was too confusing. So, we decided to use that name as his middle name and find a new first name that suited him. Oh my! We went through every single name on the AOL Baby Names list, from A to N...right down to Nate. It took us hours upon hours! But as soon as I read aloud, "Nate" we both went, "Huh...yeah..." It didn't take any time at all for his cousins to start calling him Nate the Great.
I must say, he lives up to the hype.
Kind, thoughtful, an attentive brother and caring friend, Nate reminds me every day of what I should be striving to be. I am so proud to be his mom.
Here are some pictures of Nate the Great. No words exist that can describe how much I love this kid!
