It's been too long.

What an almost year this has been. I feel like it's been a lifetime and seconds at the same time. This little girl that came into our lives has thrown us for a loop. We are so happy to have her and love the relationship that is building between her and her big sis, but man it's been a lot more than I ever expected. Charlotte is the sweetest thing but she is tough. She still is not sleeping through the night yet, nor does she nap. Contrast that to her sister who was amazing at both and still takes naps...that's right my almost 5 year old naps. Charlotte just recently started to roll and up until then she was a newborn. It was a 8 months of having a newborn. It still continues but she is starting to show her adorable, sweet, dainty (yep dainty), sensitive personality, she is her father - minus the dainty, Greg's not too dainty. She is much different from her sister, except in looks. She just had her 9 month check up and is 17 pounds, 27 inches, wears newborn and 3-6 month clothing which is opposite of Tea. She loves her big sis and her big sis is really starting to love her. Oh and she loves her real food. She has always hated drinking her food and is loving the big kid stuff. However, it's difficult for her to eat since she has yet to produce teeth, all in due time.

Her favorites right now:

Baths, swimming, always being at home (seriously, she is a major homebody), walks, Oreos.


being scared, loud noises, sleeping :), grass, being alone

Yay, I hope you keep blogging! I miss you guys. And I love those sweet little girls, I can't believe how big both of them are getting!

Good to hear from you! Your girls are adorable; Love Tea's hair! My kids don't sleep through the night much until after their first birthday, and even then it's hit and miss, so I know how hard it is to not get good sleep! I hope she starts wanting to sleep more!

So glad you posted an update. I've been wondering how the first year has been going for you. Bothy your girls are so CUTE!! It's one thing I love about having preemies--the newborn stage stays around a little bit longer and you get to love on them a little longer. Sorry about the no sleep/not napping thing though. That would be so--exhuasting!! Hope you post again soon. Take Care :)
