Natie-Bear...15 month checkup

Natalie went in recently for her 15 month checkup.  She is finally 20 lbs!!!  She is only in the 10th percentile for weight, but is in the 40th percentile for height (30 in.).  Tall and skinny and busy as can be. She eats constantly, and will eat anything, but is always on the move.
She will go in to see her cardiologist in the next couple of months to evaluate the ASD in her heart.  She needs to be at least 21 lbs. by the time she is 18 months old.  Her ability to gain weight may determine whether she has her ASD repaired sooner than later.  Of course, we are praying that it will close without surgery!

Natalie is such a bundle of joy, and a bright spot around our house.  She is starting to say more and more words, but has no problem getting her point across, or asking for whatever she wants, without articulating with her words!
I love watching her buzz around and move from one activity to another.  She loves her siblings, and just knows it is her right to participate in any activity that they are involved in.
She loves her magnets, and we find them all over the house.  While they aren't quite as bad as stepping on Legos, they still are very uncomfortable to meet with bare feet!
She knows her sippy cup has to stay in the kitchen, so she hands it to me when she's ready to go play.
Headed upstairs to find the other kids.
Waving 'bye-bye' to Daddy.  Someone thinks she's going to work with Mommy.  Oh, the sad face when I put her down so I could leave.  Her little heart was just crushed!
