Natalie turns 11!

On March 11, 1997 after being labor for about 15 hours, Tim and I welcomed our new baby girl into the world at 10:45 p.m. At that time it seemed like the sleepless nights would never end, that she would never talk, or be potty trained. On March 11, 2008 this little baby turned 11 years old! WOW! Now we are on to bigger issues - will she ever stay in the same mood longer than day, we always say 'who should wake her'. All in all though, she is a sweet and beautiful girl that I would give my life for. We now do things together and I really enjoy being with her. We go shopping, talk with one another and laugh together. Some of her best qualities are:

  1. She is so nurturing with smaller children. She really sits down to play with them. I think she will be babysitting soon and probably will be great at it.
  2. She is a good helper around the house - likes to cook, doesn't so much like to clean.
  3. She is a good friend to others.
  4. She has a beautiful smile and gives the best hugs.

Yes we struggle at times - but I am so thankful to have her in my life. She is a blessing!

I hope she had a happy birthday! It'll be easy for me to remember since that's also my brother-in-law's birthday.

My girls LOVED having her here that night y'all were at my house - she was so sweet with them. Definitely a sweet, sweet girl.
