My Handsome Nathan

I'm so pleased with myself for figuring out how to create a collage using Picasa 3. I've been reading up on digital scrapbooking and took to heart the author's advice to just take a whole lot of pictures in order to have a better selection of keepers. And speaking of keepers... here's my favorite keeper of all: Nathan Freeman.

Posted by Picasa These are a few photos we took last week of Leah at our most favorite beach -- La Jolla Shores. If only there really were seven of her!

We're lovin' the spring time here. The days are longer and the nights are warmer. We've renewed our commitment to get out to jog and walk more. It turns out Leah really enjoys taking fieldtrips on her jogging stroller and her Mommy and Daddy do too.

Our Funny Valentine

Leah was our sweet little Valentine for the first time this year. I had been saving a red dress that Leah's cousin Lizzie (now almost 12 years old) wore as a baby for the occasion. Don't you love her sunny smile? Happy Valentine's Day and lots of love from our family to you and yours.

Nathan's My Number One

Marrying Nathan was the smartest and best thing that I've done in my life. He is a wonderful husband, friend, and father. Not only does he work hard to support our family, but he spends quality time with us and does nice things for us. Case in point: When Leah and I flew home from Utah after being gone for five days, Nathan had cleaned the house spic-and-span, bought flowers and chocolates for me, and arranged for dinner take-out so I wouldn't have to cook. He's a thoughtful man and he's my #1! I love you, Nathan!

Leah's First Flight

Leah and I flew to Utah for a few days at the end of January. I was nervous to take an infant along with all of our stuff by myself while Nathan stayed home and worked, but our travel went relatively smoothly. We were busy spending time with all of our Peterson family. Leah loved meeting her cousins, visiting her Grandma and Grandpa Peterson, and seeing her aunts and uncles.

Grandparents Are Grand

Leah was lucky enough to see both sets of her grandparents in January. Grandpa and Grandma Freeman escaped the cold of Missouri for a few days to visit us here in sunny Southern California. We had fun catching up, going to the temple, watching for whales, and spending time at the beach together.
