Happy Birthday Natalie!

We celebrated Natalie's first birthday last week. I can't believe she is already one! It went by so fast. Here is a brief timeline of her first year:

Born December 28th, 2006. 7lbs 6oz, 19.5in long. Chubby cheeks and lots of hair.
2 months old. Still chubby, still lots of hair. Getting more adorable every day.
4 months old, still chubby. Hairline starts to recede, makes her ever so much more adorable.
6 months old. Can she get any cuter? Yes. I believe she can.

We had a little party with some friends and family. Natalie was excited about the balloons and the Albrecht kids the most, I think. Here we are at the party.

Opening some of her presents. She likes pulling the tissue paper out of the bags.
Butterfly cake made by mommy with help from Grandma Barnes and Tiffany.
She got scared and/or shy at all the people singing at her, and started crying.
She quickly turned off the tears when she saw the delicious butterfly head on her tray.

Dig in! Yummy!

She was so adorable and had a great time. Thanks everyone for coming and for the gifts! She sure is loved.

She had her one year checkup at the pediatrician. She is now 21lbs 3oz and is 31in tall. We love her to pieces and are looking forward to year #2!

She's so cute! I had to laugh about her getting weirded out by the singing. I probably found it a little intimidating too at that age, but I don't remember! Anyway, I was thinking we should get together sometimes since we live about a block away from each other now. Plus, we could both probably use some getting out of the house!
