Natalie's Summer

Natalie has changed so much in the 2 months since I last blogged. She has 6 teeth on top now (including 2 molars) and 4 on the bottom. It's a good thing she's got all those teeth because her new favorite food is corn on the cob. She's also gotten very good on her feet. Her pace seems to quicken everyday! She walks around the house pointing to things she can't play with and says "no, no". She can say so many things now, too. Her new vocabulary includes bama (grandma), papa (grandpa), birdie, something that sounds like thank-you and she says it at the appropriate times, air (hair), dawie (doggie), done, bubba (baby), bath, and bah (bye)! Who knows what else she can say that we just haven't figured out yet. She also knows signs for more, please, eat, drink, and milk. It's so exciting to be able to communicate better. Everything she says is in the form of a whine followed by a question mark! Natalie loves to brush her teeth. One day I thought, "It's too quiet! What's she getting into?!" But she was just sitting on the couch watching Seseme Street brushing her teeth! We are just so in love with her. She has gotten such a little personality all of a sudden. She loves to make people laugh. One way she does that is by walking while bent at the waist with her eyes half-shut. It's crazy but it gets people everytime! She has been such a blessing to the family.
