6 months?!?

Really?? Its been 6 months?! We can't believe it! What a blast we have been having -- I can't wait to see what is about to come. Charlotte is getting so "fun"! I mean, let's be honest... the first few months you can't really play or get reactions from them. But now -- we actually feel like we are doing this whole parenting thing right. She smiles all the time, and when we know its is for an actual reason we almost think she is trying to say, "Yep -- you guys are good. I think I'll keep you".

6 month appointment stats:
20 lbs 3 oz.
26 and 3/4 inches long

Looking forward to the holidays! Have a safe and happy one!

counting down the days...

Charlotte has been awful busy preparing for Christmas! We listen to Xmas music every morning on the way to school and observe the tree every evening. She loves the lights and shiny red balls on the tree. I think next year will be a challenge to keep the ornaments in tact! She has been on several shopping excursions and is being such a big girl. She'll be 6 months the day after Christmas, and I really can't believe it! She is eating baby food, starting to sit up (with some assistance), reaching and grabbing things, and smiling all the time! So much fun! We are really looking foward to the upcoming year!

Here are some pictures from our recent shopping trip and the neighborhood baby xmas party. 6 month appointment: December 19th!!

First taste of "real baby food"!! Butternut squash seems to be a hit!

Here Comes Santa Claus...

Charlotte has attended her first parade! The Charleston City Christmas parade was this past weekend - and Charlotte was so excited to go! There were lots of pretty lights, colors, and music and she took it all in... then she even took a little nap half way through and woke up just in time for the big finale of Santa Claus! She knows she has to stay on Santas good side!
