Library and Park day

Claire and Kayla have been going to story time at the library since they were less than a year old.

This was them sharing a toy at story time back in February 2012.  

Well they both still like story time, but look a little different.  

We also visited the park after the library and Charlotte got to try out a swing for the first time.  She loved it and shortly after this picture was taken fell asleep and took about a 20 minute nap in the swing.  

The big girls had fun too.

 Charlotte has always liked to put things in her mouth.  If she can get her hands on it, it goes in her mouth.  It turns out her current biting obsession was due to teething.  Yesterday morning at her 6 month checkup I looked in her mouth and found 2 little bottom teeth.  

Growing up

I really need to get this blog going again.  I was reading through the posts from when Claire was a baby and there were so many things I had forgotten about.  The girls have been busy growing up and changing everyday.  Charlotte is now 6 months old and crawling everywhere and as of Monday she can pull herself to a standing position on the couch and in her crib.  Claire is busy really developing her personality.  She talks nonstop although you can't always understand what she is saying (she started speech therapy in October). She currently tells me that everything is, "amazing." Claire is really starting to play with friends her age, which I love to watch.

 This is Claire and her friend, Eli.  She is obsessed with him.  She talks bout him all the time.  If I tell her we are going to a party she wants to know if Eli will be there.

4 month stats

 My sweet girl had her 4 month appointment today.  It was rough because a certain 2.5 year old wanted to talk the ENTIRE time so her mommy couldn't hear the doctor.  
 Charlotte weighed in at a whopping 15 lbs 11.5 oz (90%) and was 25 inches long (75%).  Her head size is still in the 5th percentile.  
Charlotte  can roll over both ways and sit up.  She LOVES to play with toys.  If she sees something she reaches and tries to grab it.  She's a big piggie and eats all the time including every one to two hours overnight.  She loves her big sister who can make her laugh.  Everything goes in her mouth.   She is wearing a size 3 diaper, 3-6 month clothes sometimes fit, but 6-9 fit better. She's a very fun girl!

 Charlotte likes to read a good book.  This is her current favorite.

Big girls sit up

 Yep, Charlotte turned 4 months old yesterday and learned how to sit up all by herself.  She also found her feet yesterday.  Charlotte spent the whole day today sitting up and trying to play with her big sister.  

I love how sweet Claire is to Charlotte.  I caught this while Claire was watching her shows this morning.  Charlotte already idolizes her big sister.  Notice the pretty quilt in the pictures, Aunt Katie made it for Charlotte and we love it!

Cuteness spill

Troy took Claire to gymnastics so I got Charlotte all ready for a photo shoot and then. . . 

 I think she still looked cute though.  These jeans are 0-3 months Claire wore then forever.  This will probably be the only time Charlotte wore them.  They were pretty tight on her little belly at 12 weeks.

12 week cuteness

I love little baby feet
