Well, sad things first. The Comins moved to Vegas this past weekend and I had the hardest time facing the fact that Kiki was leaving. We have become such close friends over the past 3 years in Ohio and we just got along so well right from the start. I miss her so much already and I would be lying if I said I haven't cried a few times.
So here are the happy things. I have really been wanting some shelves where we can put the teeny bit of food storage we have so Nate decided to build some. It was kind of a Mother's Day gift. Here he is getting started:
The finished shelves that I actually haven't put any food on yet...Nate was up till like 2 in the morning working on this for a couple nights. It's so nice to have the extra storage space.
Natalie is so fun right now. She can throw down some serious tantrums but for the most part we just can't get enough of her. Here she is tearing apart her closet. She is talking more each day. Here are some of the things she says:
I'll do it!
Bless you Momma.
I did it!
No, I try.
A new one! (Meaning she wants a new sippy cup, not that one that appears dirty)
How about that one?
Don't say that Mom. (She seriously said that to me. She was imitating Jansen.)
We grilled pizza on the BBQ the other night and it was so good. It was our first time so we learned a few things but I think this will be a new favorite summer time meal.
