The Past Couple Weeks

Now that she's bigger, Natalie likes to sit (and climb on and bounce) in her little chair.  Here she is watching a video while we have 10 minutes of quiet time for dinner.  :) 

Here she is with her dad, chilling out before bedtime.

We tried a popsicle last week and she loved it!

Mom turned 60 last week!  Dad threw a little celebration dinner for her.  It was fun!  Here's the birthday girl.....doesn't look 60, does she?

And here she is with Dad...

Camping Trip

We went camping with Justin's family last weekend at Mt. Hood.  We got to stay in a cute little cabin, the weather was beautiful, and it was fun to see everyone!  Natalie had a great time cruising around in the dirt.  Here are a couple videos and pictures of us hanging out on the deck at the cabin...

Did I mention how much she loves puffy snacks?

Video from Hawaii

I've been terrible about posting videos and they're even more fun than pictures!  So below is a link to one I took when we were in Hawaii back in May visiting my brother and sister-in-law.  Brad would play his guitar and sing for her and she loved it!  I love how her legs are kicking and when she gets her arm going in the air!  CLICK HERE to watch.  

Unfortunately, it was too big to load directly onto to blog, but hopefully you can access it via uTube.  Here's a picture of Natie with the guitar she got for her birthday.

Justin was in Las Vegas for work a few weeks ago, so I flew down for a day/night to join him.  It was nice to get away and get some time together.  We hadn't been there in a couple years and its amazing how things are always changing.

Here's Justin striking the pose of the mannequin...or maybe performing 'I'm a little teapot'.  Not sure. 

A classic self portrait at the new Encore

We saw this cool fountain at the Bellagio.  Wish we could have one of those in our back yard.

I bought Natalie some new walking shoes a couple weeks back.  She likes to take them off and chew on them.

Tried to take a self portrait of us the other day.

At my parents' house the other day, my mom and Natalie were playing catch with her new dolly.  Natalie was having lots of fun flinging her all over the place.  Here are some action mom's expressions and the dolly in motion make me laugh...
