2012: The Year of Natalie and the Newfs

Today begins our first full year with our sweet Natalie.  She brings so much joy and laughter into our lives every day.  Of course since she is a toddler so there are also some frustrating times for all five of us.  However, the wonderful moments far exceed the difficult ones.  We adore and love her so much (as you have probably already figured out by reading this blog :)

When Auntie visited recently I was able to walk both Katie and Louie while she pushed Natalie in the stroller.  It was great fun... I wish she lived closer so we could walk together every day.

Natalie watches everything we do and tries to imitate us.  This is her attempt at putting Louie's harness on.  She also tries to tell the dogs to sit and points her finger at them in an attempt to get them to lay down.  In a few years they might actually listen to her.  She certainly has the authoritative tone down pat.

We wish you all the Happiest New Year Ever!

Love, Charity, Gary, Katie, Louie and Natalie

You should get some video of her trying to tell the dogs to sit! It might look like the Volkswagen/Darth Vader commercial! :)

I bet she is so funny when trying to boss the dogs. A video would be great. Blessings

What good dogs Katie and Louie are. They are so patient and kind with little Natalie from the looks of it. I'm just loving following this journey that you're on together!
