New Favorites

Posted Wednesday, September 19th, 2007 by Mollie

I think this is my new Favorite Picture Ever:


It features Natalie’s new hairstyle, and her newest “camera face”. She’s becoming quite the ham. Aren’t you just loving the pigtails?!

Her latest tricks are:


Holding herself up on hands and knees… she still needs help getting to this position, but can hold it really well.



Sitting up on her own!

Another favorite picture of mine:



Here’s a link to my September photo gallery if you want more. Andy and I even made it into a few pictures!

Natalie is nearly 6 months old already! She can almost sit up on her own, and her first tooth has popped through! Here are some pictures from the past few weeks.

As usual, she is cheerful and excited about life 99% of the time. Here she is excited about her new headband (I wish you could hear the sound effects).


She is getting very active, rolling all over the place, but still likes to cuddle with her mama:


She had her first trip to the Ventura County Fair, where she met a goat and tried very hard to eat Mike’s nachos:


She can’t eat nachos yet, but she enjoys her cereal and drinking from our cups.


Last week Natalie got to meet her cousins Lily (5) and Mia (2). They are the daughters of my sister Katie. She loved watching them, and they were so sweet playing with her. The girls are wearing coordinating outfits from my mom.



As for Andy and I, we haven’t been doing much of anything lately because we both have had a really bad cold. Hopefully we will be better soon and able to go back to normal life!

Highlights from Last Week

Posted Saturday, July 21st, 2007 by Mollie

Just thought I’d post some pictures from this past week…

On our anniversary, we had a family date. We ate at the restaurant where we had our first real date– a little place near Silverstrand Beach. After that we went for a walk around the new marina and got dessert at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.


The following night, Natalie hung out with her grandma, grandpa, aunt, and uncle while Andy and I went to see the new Harry Potter movie.

Natalie has been trying very hard to sit up unassisted but can’t yet, so we got her a “Bumbo Seat”. She LOVES sitting up like a big girl! It is so funny when she wants us to get her out of it, though– she sticks her arms out and flaps them around.


And just for cuteness, Nata sleeping in her swing. She likes to cuddle with blankets.


And here we have Andy and Natalie hanging out together, with Nata making funny face and a camera face!


3 Years Ago Today…

Posted Tuesday, July 17th, 2007 by Mollie

Today is our 3 year anniversary, wow! Time flies! It feels like it’s gone by fast, but then again, a lot has happened in just 3 years. It’s neat to see that we’ve changed and grown up, but changed together. I think we make a pretty good team. I love you honey! I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years bring!

Oh, and if we needed any further proof that Andy and I were meant to be together, look at this cute baby we made!!

Hopefully there will be more posts coming soon, we have lots of pictures to share and it’s kind of hard to post them all here (I asked Andy to make some changes soon to make that easier for me), but if you have a Facebook you can see my July photo album there.

So Jim, Chelsie, and Jackson are up visiting this weekend for my sisters’ graduation, and Natalie seems to find Jim and Jackson very, very funny. Enjoy!
