Since I posted Charlie has become an expert at climbing things and standing there, he has yet to walk along furniture or stand without support but I'm cool with that because that means he's a little less mobile then he will be!!!

Other things that Charlie has been doing that I've mentioned is eating. I am in the process of trying to catch the face he makes every time he takes his first bite. I already have lots of pictures of when he gets into mealtime and loves to have a good time with it!!

Exibit A. CARROT FACE...

Exibit B. Carrot face in action..(that's actually remains of a teething biscuit on his face in this pic)

I don't know if you all know but, because Charlie is my son, he has a natural mohawk! We have just recently started to experiment with this so I will soon start posting more visible "cool hawk kid" pics but for now here's the best I could get....

btw, My camera is pretty stupid, first it did that whole blurry thing for a while (thanks to my friend Lyndee, I know how to fix that) and now it's doing that weird 'wrong date at the bottom of the picture' thing. My apologies for that.

Anyway that's all I could scrounge up tonight so sweet dreams everyone!

Male Model in the making..

Man! Crazy stuff has been happening here!

Charlie has been able to crawl for a while, but he's done this army crawl thing. Lately though, he's been getting up on his hands and knees and rocking back and forth. Another new thing he's been doing is pulling himself up to his feet ALL BY HIMSELF! He's only done that twice but still CRAZY!

I've also started making my own baby food which Charlie is taking to very well and loves "supper time". I have always debated how to introduce solids but I think I should turn that part of my brain and turn on the part where I do what I want to and think is best for me (and not everyone else and their babies).

Anyway, you all are probably saying, "What the heck does this have to do with your title??!"
Well, it doesn't but these do.....

Happy hand on hip pose..

This is a cover shot..

look at that expression!! INTENSE!!!

Uncle John can be his agent..

If that doesn't work, He can just be a guy in an inner tube playing a plastic guitar!! MUSICIAN, YA!!

Another Successful Visit with Godparents!

I know it's been a while, I repeatedly do this and then apologize, I know....I also promise to get better and then go back on my promise!! I'm sorry!

Here's is a little update..

We have been doing some traveling around town, and out of town too! Since last I posted we have been to Norman twice and to Charlie's dad's house a handful of times. We also visit our friends/family the Sowards occasionally. I started going to counseling this week too! Charlie is such a great traveler, Why not take advantage??!

Our friends Serena and her baby Lilly come up from Norman to see us 3 or 4 times a month So we decided to take a turn and go to Norman. We thought that would be only fair! Lilly is delightful and it is great to have a friend to talk to that is very similar and fun like me! lol

Wherever we go Charlie is great but sometimes it's nice to have people visit us! That is why when Charlie's godparents said they wanted to visit we were SO HAPPY!! We still also hadn't had our Xmas with them so it was a wonderful time! I have some pictures that They took with their high tech, no short of AWESOME camera so....I hope you enjoy!

Godpapa and Charlie having fun..

NO! That's not right the answer is 5, I have it right here on my calculator!!
I am so excited..and feeling slightly irregular.. can't you tell by my face?

Nothing to say here...way to adorable...

future male model in training...legs crossed just right, hand on hip, yea just like that!

Okay, since Karen was the one taking the pictures, they didn't get a picture of Godmama and boy with their camera...luckily, I had mine so here is the best one I got..
