Wow, you would’ve thought I fell off the face of the earth! It’s amazing how little free time you have with a baby around. But I tell ya what, it’s so worth it. Charlotte is becoming so much more interactive and her adorable personality is starting to come out. She’s so smiley and playful. She’s rolling over, grabbing things, and putting everything in her mouth. It seriously is the most amazing thing to watch a baby grow up and learn something new everyday! This is definitely the best job in the world. She still doesn’t like to sleep…like at all. So, we’re pretty sleep deprived, but our bodies are getting used to it and we’ve got a pretty nice routine going for taking “shifts”. Parenthood is all about teamwork, right?!


I spent the weekend at my parents house a couple weekends ago while Eric spent the weekend hunting in Western KS. Charlotte got a bath in the sink! She pretty much loves baths, so she didn’t mind!Charlotte's bath at Grandma Charlotte's bath at Grandma's


Grandma has been visiting us one or two days a week since Charlotte was born (and some more when I was in the hospital). She loves watching Charlotte grow each week and we LOVE having her here. What a HUGE blessing!! They have a special connection, as you can see…Grandma reading to Charlotte2

I can’t get enough of all of Charlotte’s adorable faces and her teensy toes, fingers…every little part of her is perfection!Grin IMG_7899


She even attended her first wedding reception! She was kind of amazing, I have to say. She slept some, and put on a smile for all of our friends the rest of the time. It was about an hour and a half away, but she slept all the way there and back….miracle! Wedding with CharlottePhoto booth
And see that big girl sitting up in her Bumbo?! Hello neck control!Bumbo
Every single Sunday, Eric decks out Charlotte in her Chiefs gear. She really is his best good luck charm 🙂Chiefs fan
Let’s pretend this photo isn’t blurry. I have to say, Lilly kitty is pretty adorable with Charlotte. Sometimes she gets a little too close for comfort…and that’s when Charlotte grabs her tail. She may or may not put her tail in her mouth (gross, I know). She’s a cuddly kitty, so I think she wants to make sure we both know she loves us. Cats are weird.  Lilly and Charlotte
And last, but definitely not least- the cutest little turkey in the world! My Mom got her this outfit. Adorable!!! We spent the holiday at Eric’s Mom’s house, which was great! She got to meet most all of her family on that side. Thanksgiving outfit Thanksgiving I promise not every post will be solely about the babe. We’ve been doing some fun Christmas decorating, home improvement projects, AND even have a big ol’ renovation in progress (a new porch!), so I’ll be sure to share that along the way too 🙂
