Fireside Five on Friday and 11 Month Photo Shoot!

So apparently the blog is now solely devoted to monthly Charlotte updates and Five on Fridays. We (meaning mostly Eric) have been doing DIY projects out the wazoo at home, but they just don’t quite make it to the blog these days. For now, here are a few things we’ve been up to…

Miss Charley girl turned 11 months on Wednesday! That’s just one month closer to a big one year old! I still can’t believe it…but I say that every month. Taking photos of her has never been more difficult. She doesn’t sit still! This month, she took her first steps (watch out world!), learned to clap, talks all the time, and got cuter…if that’s possible.

On to Five on Friday! These are from the last couple of months as a little update…

ONE– We have fox friends! They showed up on our PORCH of all places one Saturday morning. We had eaten breakfast out there and apparently left some food behind. They were brave enough to come up to the house and eat away. Barkley was at my parents house….he never would’ve let that happen. They’re just pups, so they’re seriously adorable! They come up near the house nearly every night and look for food. I get that we probably shouldn’t be excited that we have fox around (especially with a little cat running around), but for now, they’re causing no harm and they’re cute to see!IMG_9337 IMG_9344


TWO– Yea, we’re in this stage…climbing on everything! It’s hilarious to watch her try to fit in tiny spaces. dishwaser in hutchTHREE– Playing in the baths with friends is fun! Charley’s BFF, Charlotte, came over and we couldn’t resist putting them in the tub together. It’s so amazing to watch these two grow up together. They’re really starting to play, rather than just stare at each other. Dinners together have never been so exciting!playing in bathlooking up in baththe girls playing


FOUR– I have yet to do a post on our 4th of July vacation with our friends! This is one of the many photos from the weekend. We made so many great memories on that trip- I hope we make it a yearly tradition!!Group SmilingFIVE– Our garden is out.of.control. I’ve never seen cucumbers as big as we’re getting, and the tomatoes are coming in by the dozens. I guess that’s what happens when you have 27 tomato plants….woops. We’ve been giving produce away to people every day, so this is just part of the loot from two day’s harvest. Whew! Eric and I have enjoyed gardening since our first house in Sidney, so it’s a fun thing we love to keep going and learning from. Maybe Charley will have a green thumb from all the time she spends out there!
