Catch up!

It has been about 2 months since I posted last. Hopefully this isn't too long. We have been busy with Natalie, family, work and friends. Well to begin in March. . . 
 Jon and I were outside looking at the yard to see what needs to be done. Well that was Natalie's first time outside in the sun without it raining or snowing. lol She was so small then.

 Natalie had her first Disc golf course run. I carried her around in one of those backpack-front pack things. By the 16th hole she was worn out and fell asleep. Now every time we go she sleeps well after. But before she falls asleep she laughs and talks to every one playing. 
She was out like a light. I couldn't stop laughing at how asleep she was. :) 

Now onto April. . . 

She also started suck on her hands and fingers or anything she can grab and suck on she will. She also loves the bumbo. When it's time for dinner i put her in it and she just sits there on the counter and watches me cook.

Easter came and went. But my favorite part was picking out Natalie's dress. The Easter bunny did come and brought a bunch of new toys for Natalie.


Don't worry Jon was mowing his mom's lawn and I decided to see if Natalie likes the grass of not. As I have heard from others some babies don't like the feeling of grass at first. Well I don't know if her look was "Why am I here Mom?" or "What is this new feeling?" or "What is that noise I hear?" She seemed to be okay with it. And since then she seemed to not really like the grass. 

Now onto May. . . . 

Devin and Cami blessed their baby girl on May 2nd. It was amazing and you can see the happiness in their eyes. I also had the time to finally got to meet Kymbree Jo Mitchell, Matt and Jodi's baby girl.

We got the girls together. (Left to Right) Natalie Lee is 16 weeks and 2 days old (3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days old), Grace Ann is 8 weeks and 6 days old (2 months and 1 day old), Kymbree Jo is 2 weeks and 2 days old. 

The final and best picture! We are all done. :) (left to right) Jodi with Kymbree Jo born April 16th, 2010, Cami with Grace Ann born March 1st, 2010, Marissa with Natalie born January 8th, 2010. 
Mekensy, Natalie and Arcadia

Mekensy and Arcadia chilling eating a Popsicle with Grandpa Habel when we went to visit them.

Natalie had her 4th check up and shots. She did better this time with them than at her 2 month. I didn't have to feed her to calm her down. The book that is next to her was given to her by her doctor.
Her stats @ 4 months:
13 lbs. 11 oz.
(50th percentile)
 25 inches long
(65th percentile)
 about 16 inches
(4oth percentile)
One day I was working on my scraping and Natalie was helping. :) She was making sure the circut was doing what it was suppose to be doing. lol 

Jon was working on the sprinkler system and Natalie and I came out to keep him company. Our bush bloomed and I couldn't resist taking a picture of Natalie with a flower on her ear. lol 

One of new things is that she likes to hold her bottle now. We have to give her a small bottle because of genetics she has inherited my small hands and can't hold the big bottles as well as the little ones. j/k.
She loves her feet now. And loves to be swung by her hands and feet. :)

And here is Natalie doing both at once. lol 
Now Natalie's favorite position to sleep in is on her side in the corner. She even turns on her side when I put her to sleep for a nap on her back. 
 In other news we didn't do any yard work for a long time so we had a field of grass for a front and back yard. It was long enough that we could put Natalie in it and she would be lost. 
 Our neighbor who has a riding lawn mower came over and helped us out with the tall grass. It was really nice of him to help and it cut the time in half in just doing it with a regular lawn mower. 

Well that is all for now. Hopefully I will not go as long as I did before I post again. TTYL...

Jon, Mo and Natalie

I can't believe how big Nat is getting. We should get together soon for a summer barbecue.
Also, I was very happy to see that Natalie was decorated for Easter!
