Bedtime is 7:30-8 every night and we wake her about 7:30 every morning. Yesterday morning (Saturday) we let her sleep in and she didn't wake up until 10! She must be going through a growth spurt because she has been sleeping a lot the past week. It could be because she started school last Monday. It was another big adjustment for our family but after the first day it started to feel more normal. I accomplished a lot more when she wasn't at the house. I don't think I realized how much of a distraction she was when I was working even though I wasn't taking care of her. It was hard to hear her squealing and talking while I was working. Her school is really nice and the women that work there are great. After she gets home she turns into Miss Chatterbox and tells me all about her day (I'm assuming).
Today our little C is 4 months old. 4 months is such a short time but it feels like she has been with us forever. She is the happiest little person all the time except when 7 hits every night. She will go from having a huge smile on her face to her bottom lip coming out. It might be the cutest thing I've ever seen. That bottom lip. I've tried to catch a picture of it but can never catch it. Does that make me a mean mom? That when she cries I think it's cute?
As you know, we have moved. We have been here 2 weeks now and it feels like forever. We absolutely love our home and having tons of trees. Our old house had 4 trees and this house has who knows how many on our 2 acres. There is so much storage here I have empty cabinets everywhere. I'm sure they will fill up one day. This house has so much character and I am looking forward to decorating it and making it ours. Our first project was Charlotte's room. We ended up doing the same paint that we did in her other room at the old house. I'm obsessed with the color gray lately and I think that I will have more than one room that is painted gray. Charlotte's room had 2 layers of wallpaper on the walls. Super cute for a boy but not for a little girl. We had the wallpaper taken down, the walls textured and painted. It turned out great!
I wish I could keep Charlotte this little forever. She is so smiley and giggly and lights up when we talk to her. I want to remember every noise she makes and bottle them up for when she's arguing with me about taking her to the mall or not wanting to do her homework when she's 13. Actually, she probably will never argue with me because she will never want to leave home and always take naps on my shoulder right?

I'm way behind in updates lately with all the moving madness that has gone on. Hopefully I will get some updates on here soon. We have already started some little projects on the house and can't wait to see it all come together. Most of the boxes have been unpacked, but we still have a lot to do. This house feels like our home. We have only been here a little over a week and it feels like months. I never want to leave. Anyway...want to see some pics of our growing, bubbly baby? She really smiles ALL the time...until the camera comes out...
