4 Months

Teddy is 4 months!
He is an easy-going, good-sleepin', hungry-all-the-time child and I could not be more in love.

Here are the outtakes from our little afternoon photo shoot:
{Charlie is interested}
{annndd, Charlie is disinterested}


For the first time since Teddy's birth, my hair shed less today than it did yesterday!
Is this the beginning of the end?!??!! Let's hope.

Whole Lotta Baby

Our weekend was a wonderful mix of eating, drinking, snuggling, shopping, laughing, feeding babies, diapering babies, bathing babies...and more of the same.

We adored having Jody, Whit and their precious Harrison stay with us this weekend and was so sad to see them go. We will see you again soon!

This face is going to be in my home tonight.
I am pumped.

Taking Notes from the Toddler

Teddy was fighting a nap for the better part of an hour until Charlie piled him high with warm laundry. Seemed to do the trick!
You better believe I left that laundry right where it was until he woke up.

Dear Charlie~
Today we celebrated your half-birthday. You are fairly confused about birthdays these days, thinking every day is YOUR birthday. Happy Birthday is your favorite song and we sing it daily which makes matters worse. As if regular birthdays weren't perplexing enough, your mom insists we have a half-birthday too. She likes baking cakes.

We did all things Charlie today, and it started with a trip to the doc's to get a Hep shot. You wow'ed Dr. Wendy with all the words you know, your super waxy ears, and the fact that you made it back on to the charts (3% for weight, 25% for height). Go you! We also went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch with Daddy...You ate about 3 fries and one swig of chocolate milk. We played at the park, listened to Adele all day {okay, that was mommy}, played "stickahs" with your sticker book and address labels, and had a total of zero time outs. Go you! We all had fun today in your honor, and wish you many more Happy Halfies!!

Sugar & Spice

Oh Charlie,
You are one part sweet to two parts spice.

We wouldn't have it any other way.
