Legos, legos, and more legos. Nolan has taken up an interest in the last few months.
I think Paul nearly polished off the whole tin of popcorn.
Natalie is a pretty good eater if her food is pureed. She will tolerate textures, but definitely prefers when her food is not super thick. Fine with me since watering down her food is the only way I can get her to drink plain water. All of her liquid has to be sweetened, so I add nectar or prune juice to even her milk.
We call her hand that you see up near her face "Wilson" like from the movie Castaway. It is her buddy and she constantly needs to know that "Wilson" is nearby.
The nickname Sweet Pea never caught on. We much prefer Natty K or Nattles.
Nattles is smiling more and more everyday. Mostly because she cracks herself up, but sometimes because she is responding to something we have done.
Either way, it sure is cute.
And look at this face. Natalie's expressions are so funny!
The boys enjoy coloring. They got new coloring books and markers for Christmas.
John and I recently celebrated 21 years of marriage.
We went out to dinner with the gift card we got from the kids.
Here are pictures from New Year's Eve.
Cheesy scalloped potatoes are always a hit!
We also made sliders with homemade buns.
When we are all sitting down at the table eating dinner, I often, randomly ask one of the kids, "Do you know why this tastes so good?"
They always answer--
"Because it's made with love!"
