Happy Anniversary to Us!!


Two years ago today I married my best friend.
9 months and 8 eight days later we welcomed beautiful Baby Charlotte into the world.
Today the 3 of us laughed, cuddled, hot-springed : ) and enjoyed eachother.
Later this week Jake and I will enjoy a date night just the two of us : )
I am the luckiest lady in the world!!

Doing those things you do...

Charly Bird you are growing and changing in so many ways! I thought I would just jot down some of the cute things you do : )

You adore photographs and like for me to tell you who is in the picture when you point them.

You intentionally spill the water out of your sippies so that you can swoosh your hands around in the little puddle.

You chase Cowboy all over the place. If you can catch him you'll hold onto his tail and walk in circles while he tries to get away. If he's sitting or laying down you'll hug him and say "mmmmm"... your kissing noise : )

You give kisses and high fives... when you feel like it : )

You eat with utensils like a big girl and can even use straws.

You like to close doors and you get so mad when you trap yourself in a room.

You love to have your teeth brushed and sit down excited on the bathroom floor when you see me putting the paste on.

In a room full of toys you can always find the one thing that isn't.

You like to kick balls and bottles around the kitchen floor.

You love to be outdoors. You have eaten dirt and sucked on rocks.

You probably hold some kind of record for the fastest unrolling of toilet paper.

You crinkle your nose up and throw your head back when you whine.

You are an amazing communicator!

You use baby sign to ask for baths almost every afternoon and love to nurse in the tub.

In the bath you like to wash Mama and Dada's hair.

I hope that 50 years down the road I can still hear your tiny voice and darling noises. (in a not-crazy kinda way)

You have turned into a billy goat!... climbing to the top of things like the coffee table, ottoman and play center.... one big fall so far : (

You just started enjoying to be (loosley) swaddled and adored. It is my favorite!! You'll drag a blanket to me and hold it up and "ahhhhh".

Baby, everything you do amazes me and I want to remember it all! I love you and all the things you do!!


oh, and you look like an angel when you sleep.

Outdoorsy Girl

We are so happy to see Spring sneaking in!
Charlotte looooves to be outside so we have been getting plenty of vitamin D lately. She would much rather push her stroller than be pushed in her stroller : )

I love her little hipster shades and am so impressed that she will keep them on!

She loves play with rocks and is still figuring out that the are not snacks : )

Coming inside after our outside time almost always results in a few tears.
We love our little nature lover!
