My pretty girl is one today. I cannot believe how quickly that year went by. Seems literally like yesterday I was curling her up for newborn pictures. Natalie has almost 4 teeth, has no desire to walk, is very stubborn and independent (like me) and has recently learned to climb our stairs… Up but not down. She is terrified of falling down it seems, but not of heights. We’ve recently learned of her new found love for “George”, Aunt Jenny would be so happy to know her Curious George gift is going towards much use of comfort during naps and bedtime.
While I may be biased, our Natalie Pearl is such a bright little girl. We love you so much sweetie-pea, and you lighten the whole family, bringing a sense of “girl” back into our masculine family. You are able to melt hearts with one glance of your bright, blue eyes and your sweet ginger hair. How I love you little one. Grow, grow, grow…. just not too fast.
Lots of sweet pictures to share. I put Nat in her fancy red polka dot pants, packed up Jayden and Devin and we headed down to my favorite spot. We’d probably not been out but 5-7 minutes and I must have stirred a mosquito nest! We were swarmed much like bees, and my boys booked it down the dirt road screaming like little girls. Meanwhile, Natalie is happy as a lark, just looking around. Not much longer they were just too bad, so we packed up in a hurry, to find about 30-40 skeeters in the car! It was horrid, so my 3 squealing girlsand I opened the windows and sunroof and sped down the road. Most the skeeters were sucked out, but I still had to kill a good ten or so.
Always a good story behind cute pictures!
