For Nostalgias Sake

I took a couple snapshots of Charlie's sleepy face watching the Royal Wedding to show her when she's older. Maybe she'll care, maybe she won't!

By the way, I LOVED the wedding. I am girly to the core and this was a very exciting morning for me! I thought Kate was perfect, the hats were awesome, and the kiss should've been a bit juicier! One of my favorite parts was watching Harry as Will's best man...their brotherly bond made me sort of weepy.
Brotherly bond or raging hormones, I can't be sure!

Charlie and Daddy
Sushi Easter Lunch!
Mama and the babies! {the avocado is 16 weeks}

We had a lovely Easter Sunday...Went to church, and when we came home I decided I wanted to take some pictures of us with Charlie in her pretty Easter dress but when I put her on my hip for the first picture I realized she had pooed all over her pretty outfit. Di-sgusting. So, we have exactly zero pictures of Charlie in her dress. I thought you wouldn't mind that much if I put up some pics of the naked baby anyway!

A Little Something for Your Monday

G-Ma and G-Pa

We spent this last week playing with Jim and Jill! Well, Jordan and I went to work while Jim and Jill played with Charlie.

One afternoon when I got home from work, I was surprised to find that Jordan had rearranged our new living room furniture! What a dear he is!

We had many cups of coffee and few cupcakes along the way and have planned a Cupcake Competition for the next trip~ The Coffee Shop vs. Sprinkles

All in all, it was a lovely visit per the usual and we are literally counting the days (27) until we head to the Oregon coast!!!

Grandma Jill and Grandpa Jim were slated to leave this morning at 4:30am, but only Jim made the flight! Late last night Jill came down with a terrible stomach bug and couldn't get on her early flight this morning :(

While we're sad she isn't feeling good, we're HAPPY to have her here for longer! I got her some 7-up and a People Magazine...that should do the trick!

{we're kinda thinking this was a ploy for more Charlie time}

9 months & 14 weeks

{We're pretty much smitten with each other}

-Has started following me around the house (crawl-style), like my little duckling. AAnnnnd i love it.

-Around 16 lbs. We'll check for sure next week.

-Is constantly on the move, we are exhausted by the end of the day from chasing her around and making sure she doesn't get into anything. (She's got several bruises from bumping into things and falling down) ;(

-Has two bottom teeth and is working on a top and another bottom.

-Says "da da" ALL the time.

-Is learning how to clap her hands. She'll see us do it and then flap her hands around, trying figure out how to mimic us.

- Doesn't have a huge interest in baby food right now. She would rather have formula or people food.

- Fears Jordan's beard. She pulls away from his kisses because it tickles. He said it's enough to make him consider shaving it :)

-No longer nauseated - Hallelujah!
-Baby's heart rate today was 165
-Belly has started showing
-Hungry for protein and carbs (chicken and pasta lately)
-My hair that fell out after Charlie's birth has started growing back!
-Next appt. May 12th..."THE APPOINTMENT" to see if Charlie will have a little sis or bro!
