Seeing Natali, scooter gear

I finally got some more pictures uploaded to Flickr, among them are new pictures of Natali from this weekend when we took a quick trip to Longview.

I love that funny face she makes! It looks hilarious with the new teeth coming in! 🙂
Also, a few pictures here of all the pieces of scooter gear which have finally come together. Here we have me in my helmet and motorcycle jacket, which is mesh and has great airflow, but also has full built-in armor for protection:
And here is the latest addition to the bike itself, a specially ordered license plate which I hope will help people with their frustration when they’re stuck behind me, since I can only go 30 mph max:

I’m hoping you can see it, but it says “IM SLOW PLS PASS”!

Happy Birthday, Natali!

Sunday was Natali’s first birthday!! We drove to Longview after church to attend her party. We would have come earlier in the day or the weekend but we had to take care of babies at church that morning so it was a day of babies for us. I don’t think my pictures came out that great but Christina put some on their site also, and the exciting news about Natali taking independent steps while we were there!!

Baby pictures!

This weekend, we went to see my family, just for dinner, and got to hang out with my niece!
All that time she did all these cute things, and we only got 2 good pictures.
That’s because I was taking pictures and I am not very good at it.
She has a new trick: she will put both her arms straight up in the air like “yay!”. So, we started doing it too, every time she did it. We started this in the van, she was in the middle seat and Christian, my brother and I were in the back seat.
She would look and us and raise both her arms, and then all three of us would raise our arms in the air and say “yay!”. She thought this was pretty funny. She started doing it randomly. We would be talking and have to stop and raise our hands in the air and say “yay!”. It was pretty hilarious. We were laughing so much.

I have also posted pictures of Amelia’s second birthday. I can’t believe she’s two! And one picture of her new little brother, Max, in the photostream on Flickr as well.
