It is nice to see her get lots of hugs and kisses when our families are here as well
Natalia is just pulling herself up every chance she gets. She rather play standing then sitting and when she is sitting she is crawling off somewhere within seconds. I am very proud of her but all these early milestones are more work for the mommy! : /
Her smile just makes me melt
Daddy is a great cook! He makes breakfast and dinner often and it is really nice actually. Here he is eatting yummy pancakes that he made for everyone.

One night we decided to go to a basketball game at East Carolina Univeristy (the school that I currently go too- only one class left by the way, internship!). Then I will finally be a Child Life Specialist http://www.childlife.org/ . Well actually I will still have to take a certification exam but then that's it!
As you can see, we were really high up in the stands and I did NOT want to bring Natalia up there because it was so high and I was very nervous. I felt like she was just going to jump out of our laps and tumble all the way down to the bottom. But, there comes a time when you just have to trust your husband because he told me he would hold her the entire time and she would be fine. He was right. Not to mention, Natalia actually really enjoyed the game. She just watched and we stayed for the entire game as well. Now, I realize when she is two, we won't be able to do something like this because two year old's do not like to be restricted, so needless to say, I am enjoying these moments now : ) Taking a bottle! A nice brake for the mommy who is still breastfeeding.
Grandma L reading to Natalia
Natalia got to open Christmas presents from Frank's sister (Aunt Karen) and her family. She got her two different riding toys that she absolutely loves!!! Technically, she is still too small for them but she seems to be okay and having fun : )
