About Nathaniel’s Name


We chose the middle name “Read” in memory of Dad who died on June 11th, three days before Nathaniel’s birth. Dad was an expert in the fields of literacy, spelling, and educational technology. Dina sent updates about Dad’s leukemia that are now available online.

Counting with Nathaniel

Counting with Nathaniel – please contribute to this book in progress.

Birth to Three Weeks

Here are pictures from birth to 3 weeks. During this time Nathaniel met Benjamin in the hospital, Nathaniel came home and was held by Benjamin, Nathaniel slept in a variety of places, Benjamin and Nathaniel went to the supermarket, and Nathaniel went to a birthday party where he met some of Benjamin’s friends. Oh, and there are a few pictures of just Benjamin too.

Three to Six Weeks

Here are pictures from weeks 3 to 6. During this time Nathaniel was read to by Benjamin, met his Safta, went to the zoo, was given a virus from Benjamin (see if you can identify the picture that records this event), went to the hospital for the virus (he had viral meningitis), slept in the hospital and had a bath all while receiving IV antibiotics, met his Granny and Grandad, and had his first family photo taken. Oh, and again we include a bunch of pictures of just Benjamin.
