Life is Good

This most likely is going to sound a little fake and sugar coated, but this past week all I have been doing is enjoying time spent with baby girl.

 I probably shouldn't let it affect me so much, but her mood definitely influences mine. Her tooth has finally broken through the gum and she has been in much better spirits lately. That makes me a happy mama.

She is learning so much everyday. Today she climbed two steps all by herself. She's also been very sweet and gave me a bunch of baby kisses today. Maybe they weren't so much kisses as it was her licking my face but it was still nice.

I really think she's starting to pick up on little words too. We'll put her in her car seat carrier and she'll start getting fussy. We then say that we're going bye-bye and she'll calm down. Could be coincidental but who knows? 

This weekend we went to a friends house for a play date and Natalie had a good time. She played with two other babies and enjoyed some different toys too. There was a little lawn mower looking walker thing that she actually took a few steps with all on her own.

I am so proud of this little girl. I absolutely love my simple little life and couldn't ask for a thing.

Since day one she makes this face where she sucks in her bottom lip.

She is such a sweetie, looks more like you in every picture you post, I think. I'm glad you're enjoying life and your baby girl so much. That's what life's all about. And I know all too well how much influence the baby's mood has. There's nothing that can lift your spirits more than a happy baby.

She is so beautiful! Happy babies are good for the soul! <3 And cranky babies are bad for your waist line (well.. mine at least!)
