Just about a year ago

Nikki and I were stuck in the Hospital waiting the arrival of our little one. It was a very complicated process. It’s hard to imagine how long we were stuck in the hospital now. We all made it through and Natalie is a beautiful baby girl now.

A lot has happened since the last time I updated. The reason is right before Christmas Grandma Moore, my Dad’s mom, passed away. It is hard to let go of someone you have known your whole life, and even harder to write about it. I put off doing an update because I couldn’t very well leave out what had happened but wasn’t really ready to write about it either.

We ended up heading home to Oklahoma earlier than we planned and stayed through Christmas. We went to the funeral, where Natalie got to entertain everyone. Nothing is better than a happy little baby to cheer everyone up. Natalie had her first Christmas and got to spend lots of time with Aunt, Uncles, and grandparents.

Natalie is getting bigger everyday. She’s crawling, pulling up on the furniture, and trying to walk. She’s even started talking a little. Her first “official” word was “cat.” She knows what a cat is and refers to our cat, Oreo as cat. She calls me Dada and Nikki Mama and has even started referring to Zoe, our Corgi, as dog. Of course, with such a small vocabulary, she uses the words for more than one thing. Mama is her word when she us upset. Dada is what she says if she wants something, and she often says cat when she’s just happy. Dog though is just for Zoe.

Here are the 9 and 10 month penguin pictures of her.
