I have turned into that person...

who only takes pictures of their kid...
She is just so cute I can't help but pull the camera out all the time.
 Hamming it up for the camera.
 She rolled from her stomach to her back this past week! 
 We went to the arboretum this weekend
 The weekend started out bad when Charlotte still had her ear infection and I came down with strep.  After doctor's visits and meds we both felt A LOT better Sunday!
 Daddy and Charlotte
 Charlotte loved putting her feet in the grass
 We finally got C in a pool!  She loved it! 
 Thanks to Barbie and Brian for having us over to swim!
Why can't every weekend be three days?  I guess if they were then I would just want four day weekends.

Big girl!

We finally got Charlotte's high chair put together yesterday!  I think she likes it!  Does she not look like she is 4 years old in this picture?  My baby girl is getting so big!

5 Months!

I say this every month but I can't believe our little Charlotte is 5 months old.  This past month has been so much fun.  Charlotte is now laughing all the time and smiles constantly.  Dan always gets the best giggles from her. 
Charlotte is in mostly 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.  She is so long and lean that she mostly sports dresses with bloomers or leggings.  This past month she started grabbing anything and hair, my necklaces, my face, the dogs...everything.  A few days ago we started rice cereal.  Our doctor gave us the go ahead at her 4 month appointment but we decided to wait a little bit.  She did really great but was way more interested in her bib than the cereal.  
 It was so fun to celebrate my first Mother's Day with Charlotte.  We had a big brunch at our house for family and of course I hardly took any pictures.  It was special day and Dan and Charlotte made it so sweet for me.  Last year on Mother's Day we told my mom that we were pregnant so it was really special to have Charlotte here with us this year.

Happy 5 months baby girl.  We are loving every second with you.  Can you just slow down a little bit?  I want you to stay little forever.

Life is sweet

Hello blog world! I've been MIA for a little bit in a funk.  Do you ever just not feel like yourself?  I think that the past 6 months we have been going non stop and now that things are finally slowing down I don't know what to do with myself.  Between a new job, a new baby, and a big move we have had a lot going on.  Three big life events in a short period of time. 

I am so thankful for everything that life has brought us the past year and I can't imagine it getting any better than this.  I am going to enjoy that our house is unpacked and we are settled.  I am going to be thankful that I have a career that allows me to work from home and have a flexible schedule.  I am going to cherish the moments that Dan and I spend with Charlotte and I am going to appreciate the slow times.  Life is too short to be in a funk.
