Occasionally I get discouraged with Nate's inability to communicate as well as i think he should for his age. He had a hard time in his first year of life wearing his helmet and getting his tubes in, which both played a part in his ability to hear and speak. In those moments though, I simply ask him to sing! One thing is for sure, he may not know how to pronounce every word, but he sure does know how to stay on pitch for such a young age! I'm so proud of him! He always has a song in his heart, and I can't help but think of what that little voice will sound like in years to come!
Nate was born on a Palm Sunday, the day that the presence of God was ushered in with much rejoicing! Without trying to sound too super spiritual, I really believe this little man will serve in some capacity of ministry that will help usher in the presence of God (with much rejoicing)! I have strong suspicions this ministry may involve music, because let's face it; he can carry a tune...in a bucket!
