Check me out!

Walking with her walker
Climbing the stairs



So proud, but now has to figure out how to get down!

Check me out, walking!

Check me out, climbing!

Boy, are we in trouble now! Natasha has had a big week for such a tiny girl. First, she finally cut her first tooth. A little fussiness and some night waking, but other than that it has not been too bad (I may regret those words later). Then Natasha started walking with her new walker toy. She does a great job controlling the walker especially from the carpet to the hardwood (don't worry, we stay fairly close by just in case). And now Natasha can climb the stairs... time for baby gates! I see many exhausting days in my near future chasing around our little one.

Next up... 11 months on Thursday!

Have a great week!

Sunflowers and Tutus

My absolute favorite photo!









So full of smiles










The crooked smile





There is that tongue




Wow, we are already into February and the sunny days continue with warm weather for us, Southern Californians. With the nice weather, there have been many outings to the park to go swing and slide down the slides. After taking a break for the holidays in December and Janurary, we have a couple of play dates set up for this month with the 2010 Babies Club, so Natasha will get to see her friends soon. Our little monkey continues to bring us smiles and laughter everyday. She is pulling herself up like a champ and even has dared herself to let go for a bit to try and balance. She loves to walk (while we hold her hands), but crawling is so much easier. Natasha has even been saying "mama" to me. However, it's only when she is mad, sad, hungry or fussy. But it still counts and melts my heart each time. "Dada" still gets smiles and giggles. Natasha still loves music and her music class on Monday mornings. She does a great job shaking the bells and maracas and listening to the songs we sing.


The beautiful pictures posted above were taken on Saturday by a local photographer in Ladera Ranch. She was running a special for mini sessions and I couldn't pass up on the good deal. It was Natasha's first professional photo shoot and she did a great job flirting with the camera. I am hoping to use one of the photos for Natasha's birthday invitation. And the flowers seen in the photos will be apart of the decorations for her party.


Speaking of birthday parties, Natasha's BFF, Kyra turns the big 1 on Friday and her party will be on Saturday. We are very excited to celebrate the special occasion with her and her parents! Hopefully, I will have some photos to post next week of the girls together at the party.


Enjoy the rest of the week!
