Dear Nathan (20 months old)

Dear Nathan,

Hi love!  You have had quite a month!  You are talking so much - you pretty much say whatever you want now.  Sentences, questions, all of that.  It's pretty amazing.  You got to make an announcement this month to everyone on Facebook.  I am pretty sure I already posted the photo here on this blog, but in case I didn't...

Big Brother!  You are going to be an amazing big brother.  I hope you teach your little sibling everything you know.  Well... maybe you can skip some of the things.  ;)  

Either way, life is going to change, but I think it's going to be for the better.  You will be so happy to have a constant playmate.  

A couple of big things that happened this month: you stopped using your high chair and started sitting at the big table with Mommy and Daddy.  You are still a little short for the table, but you manage just fine.  :)  

And also, you are obsessed with brushing your teeth.  You love it.  I'm not complaining at all here - I'm super glad you enjoy it, as I've heard from other parents that getting their kids to brush is quite a challenge.  But then, you are pretty "whatever man" about most things.  I haven't seen much that makes you fight.  Except putting on clothes.  You don't love clothes.  

You continue to make us laugh almost constantly.  Our cute, sweet, funny boy.

All my love,

Influenster #MKGlam Voxbox

As a member of Influenster, I occasionally receive boxes in the mail with different products to try out.  And what fun I had with this one!  A box from Mary Kay filled with some fantastic summer makeup!  I actually used several of the products in my look for a friend's beach wedding shortly after receiving the box.  There were many wonderful products included - I think my favorites are the brushes that came with the box.  They are very high quality and super nice.  :)  The blush is a beautiful shade and is perfect for my skin tone.  I'm also loving the lip and eye colors!  Also included in the box was a catalog, which I am happily looking through now to see what I want to order.

And here's the look I created from this box's products!

Thanks, Influenster and Mary Kay!  This was a great box!
