Somebody Turned THREE!

by Mollie

Natalie had her birthday on March 1, after months of anticipation.  Check out that straight-out-of-bed hair she is sporting on her birthday morning!  Her special request was a donut for breakfast.

After breakfast we let her come out to the patio and find her gift, a playhouse.  She and Ben love it and play very nicely together inside!

Three year olds are so much fun!  Natalie has an amazing imagination.  In this picture she is completely in her own world.  That stick is actually a fishing pole and she is going to “catch a whopper” with it.

She is also becoming a great helper, happy to assist in any chore.  The other day she climbed up on the counter and peeled two whole heads of garlic for me all on her own, which was actually extremely helpful to me through the following week!

Natalie started ballet classes back in January and is learning so much!  It has been wonderful to see how well she listens to the teacher and participates in the class.  As soon as she puts that outfit on, she is completely in character!  Her first recital is coming up, so that should be quite entertaining!

I hope this gives you a little peek at what Natalie is like right now… she is so very lovable and we are looking forward to everything her next year holds!

    Three already! She seems to have grown up so fast! I remember vividly the day we were sitting in the McDonalds by the hospital waiting for Chelsie to have Jackson, and you were still pregnant…wow time flies. I like her donut request…and the fact that it looks like she got the ultimate donut with frosting and sprinkles! She is such a beautiful girl.
