Happy Fifth Birthday, Natalie!

Natalie was born on this day five years ago.

It’s been quite a ride.

For starters, she didn’t seem to like much.



Inside me, she didn’t like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. I got sick whenever I ate one. It was cruel.



She didn’t like her adorable headbands



Or her bunny hats



Her carseat OR her carseat toys that I bought hoping she'd learn to LIKE her carseat



Her warm fuzzy outfit



Her bouncer



Being called a tax deduction



Her adorable pink hat



Grass



Cake on her fingers

(And, my longtime readers will recall as she learned how to speak she would boldy say, "I don't YIKE this!")

But…

She always ALWAYS loved her Daddy.





And allowed me to dress her in various outfits:

































Before I knew it she was one…



Two…



Three…



Four…



And now she’s 5.



It’s been a fun ride.

Happy Birthday, Natalie.

  1. I do remember her "I don't YIKE this!" phase. It was always funny :) I burst out laughing at the picture of her sitting in the grass like "WHAT is that poking on my butt and legs? Spiky things ewwwww" is what she looks like she's saying.

    She is such a beautiful child. SO beautiful. But you knew that already! Happy Birthday Natalie Rapunzel!

    Love all the pictures, she is so pretty. I had to laugh at all the pictures she was crying in though, and how much she didn't like. Reminds me of my little guy!

  15. She is just so cute! All of her "crying" pictures make me think of all the pictures I have of my almost 5 year old - but instead of crying we constantly seemed to take her picture while she was pooping. No one would really know this but us since we recognize "the face" she constantly made!

    Happy Birthday Natalie!

    (I have quite a few pictures of my Natalie with the exact same face!) She just says "No (blank) for me!" when she doesn't like something.
