Natalie's favorite thing lately is Snow Globe Stories. I'm not sure how it started, but one time we told her a made-up story of someone stuck in a snow globe, and since then she's asked for snow globe stories frequently, especially in the car or before bed. They can be anything, as long as a snow globe is involved. Usually it's about someone or something that is in a snow globe. One of our favorites is about Belch the whale who burped his way out of trouble but created so many air bubbles that his snow globe burst. We even combined two Natalie classics by telling a snow globe story about Bart the Bat. I wonder how long she'll ask for these stories.
Lately she's also been making up songs, too. Yesterday I told her Renetta's kids were sick and the whole time in the car when we were out and about she was singing about how she wanted Will and Mabel to feel better and how Renetta is helping them. The "songs" are basically tuneless but they are long and she is committed to them haha.
There's so much more I could say about her - she's curious and perceptive and energetic and sometimes generous, sometimes selfish. She's sensitive and caring and loves her family and loves changing her outfits and being cozy. We love you Natsby - here's to the last few months of you being 3!
