Pictures from the Aquarium:
Natasha turned 16 months last Sunday and we took her to the Aquarium of the Pacific for the first time (mom and dad's first time too). We met up with the Tippers since they are members and had free passes for two guests... thanks again! Natasha had a great time with Kyra running around and seeing all the fishies. But, I think I had the best of time touching all the sting rays and small sharks.
Besides chatting chatting chatting, this 16 month old is starting to put her skills to the test. As you can see, she is starting to become a little bit of a dare devil. And it is not just at home. Natasha loves climbing all over the jungle gyms at the park, sliding down the slides by herself and walking straight into the water at the water park... might be time for some swim lessons.
Natasha is still eating well, sleeping great and now loves taking baths again... yay! She is also completely weaned and she (and mommy) are doing great. Natasha will still sign milk, but now it is for her sippy cup of milk instead of the breast. Zac and Natasha had a great weekend together while I was in Vegas celebrating my friend, Joliene's bachelorette party. I will admit that it was hard for me to get out of the car at the airport, but once I was there with my girlfriends I was able to relax and have fun. I knew Natasha was going to be fine with Zac and I don't think she even knew I was gone for two days. I definitely looked forward to our phone calls before her bedtime. It just melted my heart to hear her on the phone trying to talk to me. All in all, I am glad I went away and that we all survived the weekend.
Natasha's social calendar is still full of fun with music class, story time, play dates at the park and swimming with friends. It definitely keeps us busy and makes the week go by fast so more fun is had with dada on the weekends. We also have a Yo Gabba Gabba addict on our hands. She loves this show and asks to watch it morning, noon and night. Natasha will actually hand us the remote and press her chin down on her chest and say "Gabba Gabba." It really is super cute to see. At least we can lure her away from the tv with other activities and we don't need to schedule an intervention quite yet.
Thanks for checking in on our little monkey (aka danger monkey)!
