Natali is improving her speech and social skills daily....which is a good thing.
Her latest thing is to put us to bed.
At her day care the kids are spread around the room on mats. We will be in her room playing and Natali will say "Night , Night Daddy" and wait for me to lay down. She will then place a blanket on me.
Natali will then grab her dolls and spread them around the room while carefully placing a blanket on each one and say " night night baby". I'm guessing this is how the day care employees put her to bed for nap time.
She will then go around her room moving dolls and blankets around. If I try to sit up she will point at me and say "no! no! night! night!"
Whenever she is moody...which happens more and more...she makes sure we know she can be independent.
Natali has been feeding herself for months. Every now and then we can help, but she really likes to do it herself.
More and more often Kelli and I have to leave the area while Natali eats. Natali will put up her hand and say "back! back!" instructing us to back away while she eats. Cute...but annoying.

Over the weekend she took her 47th and 48th flight...I think that's her current number. We flew down to Houston to visit my dad.
Kelli and I find it interesting how Natali and her grandpa interact.

Natali is very standoffish with new people. She has never been that way we her grandpa. She hasn't seen him in about 5 months but was totally at ease. Quite interesting. When Natali interacts with her Aunts (who she has spent more time with) she is always quiet and reserved at first. ...maybe it's the afro?
