It has been too long...

...Since I've posted on this blog.

Either the reason is: A. I'm not as interesting as previously thought ~or~ B. I've been so busy with my exciting life that I haven't had time to post.

I'm biased, but I believe it is option B.

Here are a few things that have been going on over the past two weeks:

Last week we celebrated my older brother Johnny’s birthday. We were able to have a great family dinner and some birthday cake – Yum!

Thursday the 30th my mom and I took Natalie to Target for a “photo shoot”. Natalie was a great subject and we got some great photos, which we get to pick up on Monday. This is probably the only downside to getting photos taken at Target; however the low price makes up for it – big time. The night before the photos, my mom and I sorted through some outfits trying to decide what Natalie should wear – here are some of the ‘pre-photo shoot’ photos.

This is the yellow dress I wore in my 5 month photo

I think Natalie looks like a doll in this photo

Saturday, after a LONG day of Jobies, we had Kim and Brent over for dinner and a fight, the Pacquiao vs. Hatton fight. I’m not a big fan of boxing; however I’m a fan of Hatton and really wanted to see him win. This was not the case, he lost, big time. At least I was able to spend some quality time with Kim, which was the best part of the evening – by far.

This past Tuesday we had dinner with some friends, two of whom have babies pretty close in age to Natalie. Until this dinner, I thought that Natalie was big. I mean, she has been growing like crazy, her legs are so long and she has doubled her birth weight. These two other babies made me realize that Natalie is a petite girl. I guess each baby grows at their own pace, they are all about the same length – but these babies each outweigh Natalie, by a few pounds! I wonder if this is a predictor of the future….tall and skinny?

Last night Natalie and I traveled to see Frances and help her pack up her life because on Sunday she will be leaving Utah and driving east, to Washington DC to start a new job! Even though we will miss Auntie Fran, we are very excited for her. GOOD LUCK!

Today we have a graduation and graduation bbq to attend. I’ll update more later.
