Are you there?

1. Date night while Jordan's parents were visiting...Happy hour, Cheesecake Factory, Movie. Bliss. The red floral headpiece I wore was awesome too.
2. Charlie got dressed up to take lunch to Daddy...the first article of clothing she's ever refused to take off.
3. First morning wagon walk we've been able to take in 4 months!
4. Charlie's friend Katie sweetly riding the carousel at the mall.
5. Charlie watching Katie sweetly ride said carousel because she could not get herself together. Worst tantrum EVER.
6. Precious.
7. If you could only hear the crazy cackle coming out of her mouth.
8. Kid loves pineapple, and ravioli, and well everything except Swiss cheese.

I have successfully not blogged in 2 months. Go me.  I have been caught in the tricky Blog vs. Post-Everything-on-Facebook dilemma... I don't want to over share on Facebook, but it's much easier  and quicker to use it. Booooooo.  But for the sake of keeping an "online scrapbook" for myself and my fam, I will try to post more regularly. My next post will feature current stats on the kiddos because it's been a while!

A Couple Things

 Charlie welcoming us into her new, cardboard house.
Uncle Todd is awesome for many reasons, including the fact that he bought Charlie ALL the stickers the store had to offer. 
And he feeds babies too.

1. Uncle Todd came from L.A. to spend the week with Jordan and I.  We loved eating pizza, watching movies, doing arts & crafts, and discussing life as well as Justin Bieber. I am always sad when he leaves because it makes me wish we all lived closer and could be a more daily part of one another's lives.  Love Todd big time.

2. SO pumped for the Olympics. Opening ceremonies are FRIDAY!

3. SO pumped for the Bachelorette Finale tonight.  They're claiming the "Most unpredictable ending in Bachelorette history." Ever. In the history.

4. Teddy has started "waving" and it's the single cutest thing I've ever seen.

Charlie's 2nd birthday consisted of the following:

1. Homemade beanbags and a banner from her mama.
2. A sleepy brother.
3. Daddy assembling __________.
4. Frosting from the Tupperware.
5. A delicious lollipop.
6. An emergency bubble bath after said lollipop.
7. Trip to the greatest place on Earth,  Chick-fil-a.
8. Snickerdoodle cupcake with whipped cream cheese frosting. She did not care for it, cake is not her thing.She would rather have a "Cuppa cheeps?" (couple chips)
9. So many kind wishes, presents, and spoiling by lots of friends and family!

I will spare you my sappy thoughts for now on what the last two years have meant, except to say that Charlie has changed the entire scope of Jordan and my life.  She is my biggest daily challenge, yet my absolute greatest source of joy.  She is every cliche thing parents say about their children, and I thank Jesus every day that He not only blessed us with a child, but blessed 
us with Charlie

9 Months

Doc says Teddy is "Super strong, and super handsome!" I concur.   
The outtakes are for sure better than the actual monthly photos. New nicknames for these two: Zen and Drama...guess which is which?

Still Here

This sums up what they are doing these days.

Charlie is doing things she's not supposed to (drinking bath water).
Teddy is doing things I'm not ready for him to do (scale tables, bathtubs and the like).

We're still here, and until Blogger magically doesn't make me want to scream, posts will be light.  I have a lovely friend that is currently working on a new blog for me to call home and I am super grateful and super excited.  Yay for a fresh blog!

2 under 2

 {browsing the weekly ads}
 {feeling puny}

We are taking these knuckle-heads to Oregon tomorrow for Jordan's cousin's wedding!!! The last "free" flight for Charlie...Lord help us with our 2 under 2!

8 months

My little guy is 8 months and as always, I am in disbelief.  He is officially crawling, has 7 teeth and is eating "solid" food.  This little darling is his mama's boy and my whole heart.
