My Future's So Bright...

I gotta wear shades!


Who knew an exersaucer tasted that good??

America's Next Top Models

Jack was away in New York this weekend for his best friend Garrett's bachelor party. So I decided to pack up Natalie and take her to Peoria for a visit. Uncle Nick, Aunt Lauren, Aunt Maggie and cousin AJ were in town and none of them had seen Natalie since Christmas so that was fun. On Sunday we decided to take the kids to have their portraits taken. Here are some of my favorite shots.

Party Pooper

After her morning bottle Natalie usually spends some time playing in her exersaucer. This morning I put her in there so I could pack up the car and get organized for our trip to Peoria. She was laughing and talking as usual and then all of the silence. So I go in to check on her and I find her fast asleep. Guess things got a little too rowdy with Baby Einstein this morning.

Queen of Comedy

Jack and I have discovered the best way to make Natalie laugh is to say "What??" over and over...she just looks at us and giggles as if we are asking her to tell us what is so funny but it's her own little secret and no way is she sharing...

Deep Thoughts from Natalie

Natalie always has plenty to say (just like her dad!)...Here's a small sample...

We gave Natalie her first taste of baby cereal today! Here's how it went...

I've never been in this pretty chair before. This should be fun!

This doesn't seem like a bottle...

Not so sure I liked that!

Wait...are you trying to tell me I have to do that again??

Hey, that was kind of good! Maybe this isn't so bad after all!

And we even captured a bite on film!

We took Natalie to the pool at Leanne's hotel today. She isn't quite doing the butterfly yet like her daddy but she liked bouncing around in the water with her mom and some nice people loaned us a floaty for her to use. As you can see by the last picture it definitely wore her out!

Ft. Myers

Here are some pictures from Natalie's trip to Ft. Myers. We are having a great time in the sun and loving the warm weather. She did great on the plane ride down and we have kept her busy with trips to the pool, stroller rides on the beach, shopping and of course lots of playtime!
