Bumbo


It's probably time for a little update. Charlotte is 10 weeks old now! She is really sweet. I know I say that all the time but she is just so smiley. She is finally falling into a decent rhythm during the day with some consistent napping in her crib (still her least favorite place to sleep). She is still waking once to eat at night. Kate cut that out at just under 7 weeks so I was a little spoiled. I passed exhausted a couple weeks ago but I'm getting used to this sleepy state. Sometimes I look at her and think that she looks so much like Lily Kate but most of the time I think she has her own look. I think she looks more like me than like Parks - but really not exactly like either of us. When Parks is holding Charlotte and talking to her I've heard him say, "what will you be like" at least 8 or so times. We're both so curious to know her more as she grows. I'm predicting some laid back attributes - she just often seems very content. What a blessing that will be to herself (& us!) if that remains. Parks asks Lily Kate every once in a while if we should keep her or bring her back to the hospital and I agree with Lily Kate, "we gotta keep her"

Finally - we caught a smile!

March 9th is a big day. It's Pop Pop's AND cousin Scotty's birthdays.
Happy Birthday to you both.

How sweet is it to have a naked little baby sleeping in your arms.

"Too Bright, Too Bright!"


So, the sun is out here in Wilmington! After breaking not one, but two different retractable window shades in my car Lily Kate has been riding in the sun light the last few weeks. As I'm driving along sometimes I turn a corner and change directions and the sun will hit her window and will she start to yell "too bright! too bright!". I tried to explain to Lily Kate that the shade in her window could really help with that but I know better than to buy a third one. So, yesterday I bought her some very stylish "lellow sunnies". (To her credit, Parks and I call sunglasses "sunnies" so she got that word correct). Here they are!
