Inside Natalie's Closet..

It’s no secret that I love going clothes shopping for my children.

So I decided to take pictures of them in various outfits.

I was going to share photos of Natalie in a Gymboree outfit but I’m still upset with them for not sending me a 40% off coupon. So instead I’ll be sharing pictures of Natalie in a Gap outfit.





Here is Natalie, in all her confused glory. She’s all, “I don’t YIKE this right now.” The tutu is from Gap’s Daisy Fields line, the shirt is one of their Junk Food tees, and I bought the hat from eBay. No way could I make something like that. Oh and in her hand is a piece of trash that she refused to drop.



And here is Natalie ignoring me. She does this thing where she walks away and refuses to look at you. Or move. It’s really fun when she does this in public. Then when I pick her up she goes limp.





I got Natalie to come back over and then she kept her eyes closed for the pictures. The little minx.



I started singing a creepy Yo Gabba Gabba song and her eyes flew open. Then she asked me to be quiet. She’s like a mini Simon Cowell, I tell ya. Maybe she’ll be on the next American Idol panel.



I kept singing and she was all, “You do NOT sing well.” I mean, not in those words but her expression said it all. And the fact that she covered my mouth with her palm.



Since we live on a military base, helicopters and airplanes fly overhead often. Natalie spotted one and was all, “I go on an airplane soon? Yes? I sit?” (One would HOPE that you’d sit. Sometimes I have to struggle with her to get her to sit.)



Pointing out the helicopter. “It’s loud and I don’t yike it.” Oh, and still holding onto the trash.



Natalie’s reaction to the Jesse James interview. She’s all, “What’s WRONG with that guy?”



Yes! A smile. Guess what I did to get the smile?



If you guessed running into the side of the house, you’re right! (And I overheard some woman walking past while she was talking on the phone saying, “This chick just ran into her house. On purpose, I think.”)



Natalie reaction to women loving Edward Cullen. I’ve trained her well. When she sees him she’s all, “Yuck! Too cold!” (Because I told her he had cold disgusting skin.)



For some bizarre reason she decided to pretend to eat a rock.



“Yeah. I’m pretending to eat a rock. Whatcha gonna do about it?” (Take your picture, dear.)



Natalie rocks the tutu better than Sarah Jessica Parker, I just have to say.

I’m jealous of the people who got to see the latest Sex and the City already.



One last smack into the house...

And if you’re wondering why there are rarely any photos of Tommy?

Well.

  5. Oh my god, she is BEAUTIFUL! And those pics are really great- you've either got some kind of crazy awesome camera or you're on your way to professional photography or somthing. HOw did you do that? Mine always come out fuzzy on the best of days.

  10. Love the pics of Nat. The clothes are too cute. But it's your commentary that gets me everytime! Hilarious!! That and your willingness to walk into the side of the house for a decent picture.

  12. Love that hat! She is just adorable.

  13. The hat is totally adorable!! Sometimes I wish I had a girl to shop for. Boy clothes just aren't as fun!

    ReplyDelete
  14. All the picture of Natalie are very cute and all, but I do believe Tommy stole the show.

    ReplyDelete
  15. your kids are so funny.. adorable too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I knew you were going to say you ran into the house before you said it...too funny. I'll have to remember that trick.

    That hat? I wants it. For me, not Tori.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was all oohing and ahhing at Natalie, then suddenly there's Tommy in all his glory. I had to burst out laughing!!!

  19. She is the best dressed kid forever.

  20. Those pictures are sheer hilarious (well the captions) and awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  21. So cute! It's so much more fun to dress little girls than boys! Although, I wish I'd snapped a shot of my son in his baseball cleats with black church socks and shorts. It was quite the fashion statement!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey . . . How do you make your pictures unclickable? And as always, Natalie is adorable! That hat is too cute! Can you put it away somewhere for when I adopt my kids?

    ReplyDelete
  23. She is cute, and worthy of so many pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, her name is Natalie so of course she's beautiful (wink, wink!), but what a beautiful personality, too!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. fantastic pictures. and hilarious captions.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That last picture of Tommy is EXACTLY why I don't have hoardes of gorgeous pictures of my boys. Mine do THE SAME THING. So frustrating!

    Natalie is adorable, as always. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Natalie has the best wardrobe! Love the tutu and the hat. She's so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  28. These photos rock and I still want your son if you get tired of him! Natalie is too funny (on top of being too gorgeous)!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm so totally going to make that face the next time my boss is an ass to me. Which should be in about 5, 4, 3, 2...

    ReplyDelete
  30. haa! she looks adorable!! but that last picture of tommy....priceless!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. He totally upstaged her! ha! Love the hat! Too cute! And of course, the outfit and commentary were great. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You have the cutest kids in the world, hands down. I love Natalie's hat!!! Tommy's face is awesome.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh how I love these photo shoots!!!

    What Jesse James interview? How did I miss that?

    Please tell me you signed her up for the Gap Casting Call this winter.

    She is just a doll!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. um, last photo is by far the best. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. But wait, what is Tommy wearing? Banana Republic?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm pretty certain I haven't seen a normal smile on my oldest in 2.5 years.

    Ha-ha, Natalie is adorable too ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. You have the cutest kids, besides mine of course. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. These posts almost make me wish I had a little girl to dress up.....but then I am brought back to reality; breathe a sigh of relief and just enjoy yours through pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  41. She's a doll! :) Love the post. Had me crackin' up!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Incredibly gorgeous she is.
    And no! Tommy, don't!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your daugther is A D O R A B L E!

    Anyway, in response to your comment on my blog: My novel was the same length as yours but no agents wanted to represent it because of it's length. Good thing I could possibly break this novel into 2 books. So now I am querying it as a series and getting a much better response.

    ReplyDelete
  44. They are adorable.

    Tommy's picture just further reinforces my determination to have all boys. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a cutie! Well, two cuties!

    To get my surly 5 year old to smile, I have been known to do the, ahem, butt dance. Try it. It works. And? It might hurt less than running into the side of the house.

    ReplyDelete
  46. LOL @ Tommy.

    :) The side of your house must have an "Amber Dent" in it by now... You are making an impression!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh my gosh, your daughter is so adorable. Her eye lashes are really long. . . . your son, LOL, perfect answer to the absence of pics . . But he's filled with personality I see.

    ReplyDelete
  48. that is awesome! way to go tommy!

    ReplyDelete
  49. She is an absolute doll baby.

    I also like how you make her pick up trash along the highway in new clothes.

    That teaches love of the Earth and anti-materialism, which is much better than normal child abuse.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your children are precious! I enjoy your blog; you really have a talent for writing.

    ReplyDelete
  51. She's such a little model! And that'll teach Gymboree for not giving you a coupon!

    Nice face, Tommy.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I Just about peed my pants (again.. I'll have to start wearing depend when I read your blog!) when I read the Jesse comment! bahahahaha!

    and I guessed right!!! You're the best smile maker- run into the houser there is!

    She's beautiful! GO BABY GAP! Its my go to store for sure.. besides Target of course!

    ReplyDelete
  53. The cutest little girl ! You have one beautiful daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  54. She's just the cutest thing I've ever seen and I've got some cuties! Love the last one too! haha

    ReplyDelete
  55. Tommy? Hysterical

    Natalie? Adorable

    Amber? Crazy as all get out. You'd better stop running into your house to amuse your daughter or people are going to have you committed. And then who's going to watch the kids when Tom goes to Korea?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Natalie is absolutely beautiful. Tom better become REALLY scary when she is older, its good he is in the air force, and has guns :)
