Laurie Berkner Band

video

Natalie loves the Laurie Berkner band. Whenever they play videos on Nick she gets pretty excited. I was able to capture a little of her on video today following along to one of her favorites. She's a little slow in the beginning but really gets moving towards the end!

I Love the Snow!


Little Mommy


video


Natalie is such a little mommy. She loves her baby dolls and is constantly rocking them, singing to them, and in this case...sharing her breakfast. Notice how the doll is in Natalie's booster seat. She no longer sits in it but always has a "friend" in that seat at every meal. Today she also decided the baby was cold and needed to be covered in blankets while eating. Good thing today was a laundry day.

First Haircut

The "Before"

I'm not so sure about this...

Just keep talking to me Mom, I need a distraction from those scary scissors!


The "After". All even!

We took Natalie to get her first haircut this weekend! We are growing out her bangs so those were off limits but we had an inch taken off the bottom to even it out and get rid of some of her "baby hair". She was a little unsure about the whole process so she sat on my lap the whole time. But overall it went well!

Yo Gabba Gabba!








We went to Chicago this weekend to take Natalie to see a live performance of Yo Gabba Gabba...her all-time favorite show. Joe, Leanne, Maggie, Andy, AJ & Audrey all came with and a fun time was had by all. I didn't know what to expect since Natalie has never been to a live show but she had a blast clapping her hands, singing, and breaking out some dance moves she has clearly been saving for a special occassion. We had so much fun that I am considering becoming a groupie. DJ Lance Rock may have a stalker in his future!

Top Chef


Let's get cooking!

Gourmet Cafe





Dear Mom & Dad, Thank you so much for my new kitchen! I will be preparing dinner from here on out. I hope you like corn & watermelon soup...it's my speciality. Love, Natalie

Happy Birthday!

Yippee!! I'm so excited it's my birthday! Mommy & I are spending the morning together!


Yum...that was a delicious breakfast...
Sesame Street cupcakes that I took to school for all of my friends

Rocking my baby doll and giving her some milk...just because it's my birthday doesn't mean I get to skip out on my responsibilities!


Pizza and pears...one of my favorite combos
My mom is no Martha Stewart but I still loved my sprinkle cake she made me!

Actually I liked it so much that I opted to eat the whole thing straight out of the pan with a spatula...

It's my party and I'll destroy the cake if I want to! I love a good mess!
