Natalie's Tricks, Talents and Milestones--16 Months Old

I've been meaning to write down all the new things that Natalie has been doing but hadn't gotten around to it.  Until today.  I started a list to keep in her baby book and also as a reference when we go for her well-visits with the pediatrician.  I figured if I started posting them here it'd be a good record for me to refer to later if I need to.  I'll add to it every month or so to keep it current.
