|Kevin and I had a picnic in the park for our anniversary a|
couple of weeks ago. We took Charlie with us, he sucked
on a lemon while we had burgers and fries. Yum.
In my last post, I wrote about Charlie's first top tooth. That same day, we found another tooth...then another. So, now he has his two top teeth and three bottom teeth. It made for a miserable week, but thankfully we all got through it relatively unscathed.
He has some new sounds now, too. He can say his t's, s's and d's. But unfortunately, still no sign of an m. That's ok, though, because I'm sure "Mama" will still be his first actual word (Kevin will vehemently argue that he's already achieved the first word milestone with "Dad", but reality is what you acknowledge, so I say it doesn't count).
|Charlie loves his dad. They are the best of buds.|
|One of those faces I was talking about. This was a grape|
popsicle. I couldn't get it out of the wrapper fast enough
for him - it was gone in less than 2 minutes.
My mom sent Charlie a package from their trip to Yellowstone a few weeks ago. It was moose-themed, of course. Charlie got a cute red jammy set, a book and a stuffed moose. As soon as I got the moose out of the box, Charlie got an instant smile and lunged for it. Since then, he sleeps with it at night and during naps. He loves that moose.
I'm starting to think of what I want to do for his birthday. It's still a couple of months away and I don't plan on doing anything elaborate (we'll save those birthdays for later) but I'd still like to do something fun. I'm still not sure what our family has planned for Thanksgiving, but I might try to combine his birthday celebration with a family get together, if I can swing it. If not, shoot - I'll just bake a couple of cakes and let Charlie go to town. Any excuse to bake a cake is a good excuse.
|We tried pancakes for the first time with great success. No |
choking or gagging, relatively good self-feeding and extra
cakes for mom. Win-win!
|Angel is holding a very tired Charlie at the fair. The poor |
guy couldn't get any peace and quiet to take a nap until
it was time to leave.
|More grape popsicle. I expected him to struggle with the cold|
ice chunks, but he did extremely well.
|Here we are trying whipped topping for the first time. This |
was actually just to distract him for a few minutes until his
breakfast was ready. He was not impressed.
