It seems that everytime I turn around, Natalie is growing by leaps and bounds. Rather than being sad that my baby is growing up, I'm reveling in this time of her life. It's so exciting to see her grow and change and discover new things. I'm just so proud of her!
Her newest trick made it's debut at yesterday's La Leche meeting. Mike has been working with her for about a week on clapping, and yesterday she did it by herself! She's been doing it a lot since. It's so amazing to see her start showing individuality and choosing to do things on her own, like clapping.
At one point this morning, she was walking across the family room, saying "Ba, ba, ba" and clapping her hands all at the same time. I about exploded!
