We’ve been spending our time playing with friends, making treats with Daddy, and begging him not to go to work…
Natalie has finally discovered the fun of drawing people and “writing.” If you happen to get a letter or picture from her, know that you are lucky because I only let her actually mail one or two out of the dozens she creates. Of course our sweet mail carrier enjoyed a few pictures I forgot to remove from the mailbox after she went to bed. Which was great because she wrote her back, thanking her for the pictures!
Also Natalie has taken a liking to calling us Darin and Nada more often than Mom and Dad. I just nicely remind her that she can still call us Mom and Dad. Really though most things are cute when she talks, except for the whining and crying, that I could do without. I love when she whispers, “Can I tell you a secret? I love you.”
She also has a ridiculous love for stickers right now. My handvac has about 30 stickers on it, I’ve scraped way too many off my table and walls, and every day I am wearing a few… sometimes I forget. I wonder how many people were laughing at the upside-down ice cream sundae on my chest as we ran errands last week… oops!
