Sweet Pea


I can't get enough of this girl these days. She is so fun. She could roll and scoot around the floor with Lily Kate all over her and be content all day. Charlotte has finally started eating baby food, which makes life a little easier for me because she can survive without me for a meal now!! Speaking of food - we learned tonight that Charlotte is allergic to strawberries. Parks gave her some really yummy pound cake (thank you, Grace!) that had been soaked in strawberry juice and shortly after her skin was "polka dotted" (according to Lily Kate). The nurse had us watch her for the next 2 hours to make sure she didn't stop breathing because that is common in strawberry allergies (how's that to make a mama a little nervous). She's was just fine and happy the whole time. What a sweetie.

Play date with Oliver


Here's our buddy, Oliver. He's our sweet friend who is 16 days older than Char. This picture makes them look serious but they were all smiles all night but, of course, I couldn't get a picture of them both smiling and still enough not to blur the picture.


Both of the babies are on the verge of crawling. We find Charlotte rocking on her hands and knees all the time. She can sort of launch herself forward but so far no legitimate crawling.

Baking & Bath Time


Lily Kate and I made brownies the other night. "Cooking" together has become really fun. Baking is especially great because she can dump in ingredients and mix things. She and I ate about 1/3 of the batter before we made them. Notice there are sunglasses in her hand because she wore them the during the whole process :) After baking we headed to the bath to join Charlotte. I don't know if you can tell by clicking on the picture (to enlarge it) but Charlotte's eyes are almost completely green now, like mine.
