Natalie's 3rd birthday was the day before we left on our vacation. We kept it simple and went to Mc Donalds with a few cousins. Obviously my gift to Natalie was that I didn't do her hair that day. (*snicker*) I was a little pre-occupied with getting 6 people ready to go on vacation for 12 days!
Natalie is our little independent child; for example if she is hungry she goes in the kitchen and gets herself a yogurt or a cheese stick or goldfish or whatever it is she is wanting (including candy, the girl has crazy candy radar) She can be such a stinker but she gets away with it because she is too darn cute. She has been pulling these tricks since she was a tiny baby. She just gives us her sneaky little smile and laughs and we can't stay mad at her.
I am so lucky to be the mom of four beautiful and fun girls. They make me so happy and challenge me all at the same time. It is funny how different they each are, the other day Hailey did something and asked, "does that make me your favorite?" I thought that was so funny and I told her they were all my favorite, each in their own different ways. People ask me all the time if I want a boy, and I have probably said this before but, I love having all girls and I would be just fine if that was all we ever had. Allan on the other hand loves his girls more than anything in the world but he hopes someday we get a boy too. DISCLAIMER-We are not done having children but that is not because we are TRYING for a boy.
