Say "Cheese"...

14 months already?!?!

Natasha loves strawberries picked fresh from the vine...
... she loves them so much that we rarely get a bite

First Baseball Game:
Yay, Angels!
Thank you Baylee for the Angels dress!
Dinner with friends:
Jake had a little too much fun playing in the fountain...
... and so did Natasha
Playing with Kyra (BFFs)
Chasing Kyra
... CHEESE! Natasha added the word "cheese" to her vocabulary this week and it is so cute to hear her say it. She also turned 14 months this week and obviously has no intentions of slowing down for her parents. Besides saying cheese, she can say ball, dog, dada, mama, water (sounds like waa-waa) and hat. And she is learning new signs all the time. Natasha can sign milk, more, hat, cracker and Thank You (so cute). She is pretty close to signing bicycle and car. It's so amazing to see her grow everyday and watch her communicate with Zac and I.
Last weekend was a busy one for us and we are paying for it this week with Natasha's first cold (and a cold for mommy too). Up until yesterday, Natasha was playing, eating and sleeping well despite being congested and having a terrible cough. Then she had a slight fever and she did not sleep very well on Thursday night, so off to the doctor we went on Friday. Her lungs were clear, throat looked good and no sign of an ear infection... phew. Our doctor said it was a common cold and it would last 7 to 10 days. She slept most of the day on yesterday and seems to be doing better today. So hopefully we are (both) on the way to recovery. But we did have a good time last weekend celebrating or friend, Amanda's 30th birthday with dinner at Buca di Beppo on Saturday. It was so much fun having five toddlers sitting at the dinner table with us. And as you can see the kids had fun after dinner running around outside by the fountain. Natasha attended her first baseball game on Sunday. We decided not to stay for the whole game because it would interrupt her nap schedule. She clapped with the fans and even though she did not try a hot dog or sausage, she sure loved the ice cream sundae. I see many more games in Natasha's future... daddy's little sports fan!
Hope everyone has a great Memorial day weekend... we will be resting!
