Cooking is so much fun when Charlie is having a good time.
And he’s usually having a good time at snack time.
Good buddies Gladys and her (three generations of) boys
Charlie and his Kali
We had a wonderful Easter weekend with the Lingens- I didn’t actually take too many pictures, but the ones I did get I think are worth sharing.
This was just after he realized I was watching him crawl behind the couch.
Trav came home and crashed after work one morning, so I just set Charlie next to him for a bit while I did a few things. You can tell how excited he is about his dad lately. In the morning, as soon as he hears the porch door shut, he is completely alert and looking for him.
And now Charlie has decided that he would like to feed himself. I get the spoon up to his mouth, he clamps down on it, and then takes over (which I guess could also be because he’s working on some more teeth). Then I have to steal it back and start all over.
Sometimes it takes a while to feed him :)
Charlie and his new pajamas…
Needless to say, we are in full baby-proofing mode… outlet plugs, cupboard latches, and most importantly, electric cord wraps (and duct tape). He’s having a hard time exploring right now because I have to keep stopping him… from getting into everything! He did find Meow’s vacant house, though. I sent some toys in, and he stayed playing in his new fort for awhile.
Trav is always taking video when I am at work, so its kind of fun to see what the two of them are up to while I'm gone. And Charlie is loving this centipede now. He puts all of his effort into wrestling it, but still usually ends up on the bottom.
*I can't edit or view videos on my computer because the program is not compatable, however I am able to post videos under 100 mb or something like that; so this is the best I can do for now, until I figure something else out.
This is what happens when you leave your stall unattended. Millie is currently awaiting her bundle of joy in the lean-to of the barn, and the cats have taken up residence in her empty stall. Not too much longer though, and then they’ll have to give it up (her due date is April 9th).
Okay, that was honestly my quote for the senior year-book :)
Katie’s going to a ring-prom thing for the Air Force in Colorado after she’s done with school (she can expand on that if she’d like). SO we thought we’d practice a few hairdos to go along with her fancy one-shouldered, rented dress (renttherunway.com).
I kind of like her hair like this the best…
Woops, now this post has gone to the goats.
Charlie did not love the goats. Even though they are babies, and adorable.
I am blogging so much lately because I'm procrastinating finishing my taxes in my spare time (i.e. when Charlie is sleeping). Now I've outed myself, so Becky (in the third person) Get your taxes done! And Katie, hope that Thesis is progressing...
Charlie was in a total zen the whole time we went for a walk today, and while swinging (a relief for the poor baby and his poor teeth and gums). I think pushing Charlie in the swing for the first time was my complete favorite moment in life thus far.
