Natalie has survived the first two months of life with two crazy parents and an “explorative” brother….
doctors have great hope for her future!
She weighed in at 10 lbs. 10 oz. (47%),
and is 23 1/2 inches tall (90%).
I thought, “WOW! She’s grown 2 inches and put on over 4 pounds in 2 months! She’s growing so fast!” Then I looked back at Luke’s 2 months stats, and he had grown 4 1/2 inches and put on over 6 pounds!
So she’s not getting quite as huge as her brother…. yet!
We just adore her! She does smile, but mostly at Daddy.
She is cooing and “talking” now.
She is amazed and confused when looking in the mirror.
She does not like it when Luke pokes her or squishes her, but she doesn’t mind his kisses or licks as they sometimes turn out to be!
He thinks it’s funny to add “ga-ga” to words, so he calls her “Nat-lie-ga-ga” or “Natabear” or “Princess.”
He likes to help with diapers, giving her pacifier to her, showing her toys (not the toys Mommy picks out, only Luke selected ones). She loves watching him run around.
We are happy to have this girl in the family!
and yes, I need to take some better pictures of her! I’m not so good at capturing the sweetness like other people are!
Congratulations! What a blessing to have a healthy baby. I’m glad you got a girl. They are so fun. My daughter’s 3rd birthday is today and it has made me grateful she’s with us, too. Enjoy her while she’s small. The time flies.
She seems absolutely delicious. I want to hold her! I love the dark hair, chubby little cheeks, and the big, beautiful eyes that look like they’ll be blue! In my opinion, Luke looks exactly like Darin, and Natalie looks more like you, Nada. Love it!
What are you talking about…you can’t NOT capture the sweetness. It’s everywhere! Luke sounds like quite the helper with all the wet & sweet kisses. Much more fun to come.
Ahhhhh, she’s such a cutie!! We miss you guys!!
Yay I love the post! Natalie is so adorable I think any picture captures that. I agree she looks just like her mother
