Random Natalie Pictures

(I apologize if anyone is squeamish - I tried to keep the ick-level to a minimum)

All ready to catch Natalie
My baby-catching rockstar
Meeting her for the first time
In total shock as to what just happened ...
Napping with DaddyNatalie thinks she's Number One
(... and rightfully so)
Our "First Baby of 2009" gift from Baptist Hospital
She loved her first bath ... or, you know, not
Her tounge rarely stays in her mouth

yipppeeee!!! I have checked like every 2 hours!

Lee looks a tad nervous in the 1st one! I love his concentration when he is catching her!

She IS the number ONE New year's baby...hehe!

So, I guess it's cool that you didn't already buy the carseat system.

I love her and I don't even know her.

I love the bath picture. That reminds me of Duke's first bath at home!

Diann Lee said...

She is absolutely beautiful. I knew she would be. Thanks to Richard and Beverly Solchenburger, I was able to see the pics. I will show them to Gary later.

Dear Suze and Lee,
I have just found out that Natalie has arrived--somehow Liz knew and somehow she remembered to tell me. Let me say, Natalie Jane is gorgeous! I don't say this about too many babies, but she is as beautiful as mine were. I know she will be as loved and as sweet as mine, too.

Lee, you did a great job! I'm so proud of you!

Dear Little Natalie, I'm sure your New Year's birth will be just one of many memorable 'firsts' in your life. And remember, 'Pretty is as pretty does!' (That's what my grandmother always said to us--I'm a throwback, I suppose).

Anyway, as you know, Suze and Lee, you are richly blessed. You will only now understand just how much your parents love you...
