Ton O' Fun!

Lots going on these past couple of days. Summer is my favorite season and it's off to a fun start. Yesterday was Alex's birthday so he had a playdate at the mall. The kid's love playing in the play area they have set up there. You can see some pics of the birthday boy over on Telah's blog.

This is Natalie's friend Nathan. He is exactly one week older than her. Nathan was happy to smile for the camera but Natalie was just too serious.




That evening we met PaPa, Alan, Kellie and the kids at Big Ed's for some pizza. She liked sitting on the table, but still oh so serious.

Yesterday was also Natalie's 8 month birthday. I had intended to take some pics of her by herself but didn't get a chance, so we took some this morning. She typically doesn't like hats on her head so I'm surprised I got even one good one of her with this hat on.

And then for the big event. Her first time in the pool! She liked the water and kicked and kicked when she first got in. In the float she kinda just sat back and relaxed without a care in the world.
But she really just liked to be out of the float with me walking around in the pool with her. She loved to splash the water. It was a big hit!



Plan on spending the evening scrapping! Check back soon for a layout update. And a big thanks to the gals at the Unpubbed blog. My "Laundry Nat" layout got an honorable mention!

She is such a cutie!! I lvoe her in that little hat... boys only get to wear ball caps :( Your LO for the Unpubbed challenge was so cute too! :)

Aaaw!! How cute. It's funny how she looks with that "serious face." LOL!! She has the most beautiful eyes, which adds to the seriousness of her glares. Way too cute...

Isn't it wonderful to see babies enjoy the water. I believe that they have an innate love for water because it wasn't that long since they actually lived in water (the womb). That's my theory anyway. William loved the water as a baby too.

Can't wait to see the lo's!

Leah, Natalie is so cute. I love her serious facial expressions. Probably because Jayla was a very serious baby too. DH and I look back at pix of Jayla and just laugh. We often wonder how in the world that's the same person as this crazy, silly kid we enjoy everyday. lol

So, that means, your day is coming :-). I look forward to the funny stories you'll tell your readers of your "not so serious anymore", little girl :-).

Have a beautiful weekend.

Great pictures Leah. I finally got to catch up on your blog. I don't know how you manage to get so many scrapbook pages done, but you wow me. I also couldn't find a post about a haircut, but it's noticably shorter and very cute!

Mandy said...

Love the hat and congrats on the honorable mention at Unpubbed.

Elizabeth can be sooo serious at times too! I guess we just have some smarties on our hands that are just soaking everything in. Can't wait to see you in a couple of days. Hopefully it will work out for you to come swimming on Friday! See you soon!

Precious! Precious! Precious! Those hat pictures were adorable! Love the pool. You should bring her bathing suit to Neyati and we can take the kiddies swimming. Just tell her not to stare at Brody's bulging biceps.

Alissa said...

Oh! And "The Laundry Nat" layout is awesome! Definately worth a shout out!
