7 weeks old

This is the best that I've been able to capture on video so far. I'll keep working on it so you can see her little personality. She smiles a lot and is generally pretty easy to please. Charlotte has slept through the night a hand full of times but not consistently yet. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel of exhaustion and it is encouraging. The sweetest thing that has happened in my little life lately was walking into the living room and watching Lily Kate talk to Charlotte while Charlotte was in her swing. Lily Kate was saying "hey seetheart, hey monkey, hey Char" (monkey is LK's pet name for Charlotte) and Charlotte was looking at her with a huge grin. I said "Lily Kate, you did that, you made her smile! She loves you" and LK kept saying, "I did that, I did that". It was the first time that she smiled at Kate. It was a moment to remember.

So Close...

I'm so close to catching a smile on film, I keep catching the moments before. We've had some fun days around here playing with the girls. Charlotte loves to be held, she just stares and coos. It's hard to find time to just be still with her for one on one time but it's really worth it when I do. She's a sweet one.

Plumping Up

She's loosing hair but she's gaining weight. Charlotte has started smiling and cooing this past weekend. It's addicting to sit with her and try to connect. She really is so sweet. We'll try to get a video of her smiling.

We're Rollin

I had to post this because just as I finished my last post Parks called to me from the living room to come see Charlotte. She was lying on her little mat on the floor on her back and Parks had just put her on her tummy. I've seen her come close, but apparently now she's rolling over! Thank goodness we have months until crawling, I don't have enough hands for that yet.

Miss Charlotte is finally rounding out a little, I think she's getting cuter every day.


This is Crawford, I've posted about him before. He and Lily Kate are two peas in a pod. They both like to yell for fun and run around and act silly. I love watching them play, I take comfort in the fact that LK is not the only wild child.

Some Sweet Charlotte

Here she is at 3 1/2 weeks now. Charlotte is precious, she is sort of quiet, she doesn't seem to cry much (for now) even when Lily Kate is helping "take care of her"


This is Lily Kate and her friend, Will on their way to Chick Fil A. You can tell how happy they are. It doesn't get much better than chicken nuggets for dinner, and an indoor playground in this freezing weather.
PS Our other precious friend, Jacob was with us - I wish I had gotten a shot of the 3 of them
