Charlotte's Birthday Party

Charlotte turned 1. I can't believe it. My how time flies. Well it has flown the last few months. The first seven months were s...l...o...w

We sure are lucky to have her though. She is the sweetest little thing. Some fun things that she has done this year are (mostly so I have written them down and don't forget when they happened):

  • crawled at nine months soon followed by walking along objects
  • She took her first step two days ago, it was very small but it was a step (August 22)
  • She got her first tooth soon followed by the second one at 10 months
  • Started waving this week and can now say ba ba (bye bye) Cutest thing ever.
  • Started saying momma well more like mammammmmmamaaa about a month ago and then quickly stopped and only says dada.
  • Can stand on her own for a few seconds at a time
  • Is finally taking at least a one hour nap a day.....huge improvement.
Though Tea misses the days of her "sleeping beauty" bed, we are all so happy to have little Charlotte in our lives and joy every minute of it. She is still so dainty. She is constantly giving hugs and kisses and constantly wants to be held....which can get annoying but is mostly the sweetest thing ever. She is a petite thing though growing by leaps and bounds every day. She is still in 3-6 month and even some newborn clothing but has major rolls to prove to eats. And those cheeks, my goodness those cheeks can't get any more delicious. Charlotte is very friendly and loves to be held by anyone. She gets sick a lot so we keep her home a lot but she is always happy no matter what we're doing. Charlotte loves to swim, loves to take showers, loves to do mirror time with her big sissy (I stand them on the bathroom counter and they dance in front of the mirror). She loves her big sissy and always follows her around. I can't wait to see them grow up together and become the best of friends.
