Hi! I'm Natalie from Nat Your Average Girl and I am a Mama to my 17 month old daughter, Blair! When I found out I was having a girl I didn't think my heart could be any fuller. I pray that we share the same close relationship that I have with my own Mother and I so look forward to coloring, playing dress up, and shopping of course!
Although I can't get enough of the girly stuff (painted toes, glitter hair clips, fluffy skirts etc) one thing that I wasn't expecting to enjoy so much was teaching Blair an athletic skill...swimming! We did our first "Mommy and Me" swim lessons this summer and even though they weren't for the faint of heart, I LOVED teaching her something that I knew she would use for the rest of her life. It was a great bonding experience and it was neat to see how much she trusted me in the water.

Even though it's hard to watch her grow up so fast I can't wait to teach her more things as she gets older. Tying her shoes, riding a bike, and driving (Eeek!) are sure to be great adventures!
