I L-O-V-E to play!

I even love playing in my activity center so much that I fell asleep in it the other day! I passed out on the musical keyboard - and when mommy and daddy found me, the music was still playing!! Haha!!

Happy Turkey Day!

We went Tuesday for the Thanksgiving Feast at Charlotte's school. What a fun time! When we arrived Charlotte was appropriately dressed for the occasion and was smiling from ear to ear. A feast it was! a bottle for Charlotte and all the traditional turkey day food for mommy and daddy (and the bigger kids)! You will notice each of the kids were given names to match something in their personality... Charlotte's is appropriate if you have heard her "growl of excitement"!!! You'll also see two more of Charlotte's favorite things about school in the following pictures -- her friend Covington and the swing outside!!

don't eat too much!
love, mm, wes, and smiling bear

nothing wrong with a little holdin' hands.

In a nice afternoon to evening playdate with Jack - they enjoyed the johnny jumper, exersaucer, and some stimulating conversation of vowel sounds. While Jacks mom, Robyn, and MM were sitting the kids beside each other, Charlotte began to reach for Jack's arm. They then batted at one another for a bit before slowly grabbing each others hand. Their first holding hands experience!! How sweet! Now, if they could only sit up on their own so we would have a free hand to take pictures of such wonderful things!!

Tarheels vs. Bears!!!

Lenoir-Rhyne College recently played the UNC Tarheels in an exhibition basketball game at the Dean Dome in Chapel Hill. Wow! Since our families are Tarheel fans -- and MM (and mom, dad, suzanne,cousins, grandfather, aunts, uncles, etc...)went to LRC, we had to cheer for both!! Of course the Tarheels won - but it was such a great time - I think Charlotte had a blast!

Mommy's Birthday!

Here are some pictures from mommy's birthday celebrations. We went to the beach for a bit, out to dinner several times (which she mostly slept through), and Charlotte made mommy a card at school!!

Time for one of our favorite holidays! Hopefully we have started Charlotte down the path of it becoming one of hers as well. She dressed up as... well -- Charlotte! She was Charlotte from Charlotte's Web (one of our favorite books). She did great with the costume -- she even like grabing onto her "extra legs" and trying to chew on them!! We trick or treated with Robyn, Jake, and Jack around our neighborhood. There are so many kids now in our 'hood making this year really neat. The streets were filled with kids in fun costumes and parents with flashlights and wagons. We are so lucky for a great neighborhood! Enjoy some pics!
