One Year Check-up

One year check up was great!  We have a LITTLE guy...20 lbs 7 oz (34%) and 30.75" tall (50%)  But he's healthy and ready to get into some stuff and learn!

The paper is always fun!

1st Game of the Season

Here we go!  We didn't make many games last year but this year it's on!  We are ready (I think).

 



Charlie...and it's his BIRTHDAY!!!  He did SO good!

I kept telling Colt to go see his Daddy...Josh wants him to be on the field with him...he was so close to doing it!
 

ONE Year!!


The day has finally and quickly come...Charlie is ONE!  What happened!!!  Our precious LASY baby hit a BIG milestone.  He's such a mushy sweet little baby!  Today is such a busy day, I wish I could spend all day with him, but I have a CPE class I've got to go to:(  Thankfully it's the weekend but we have a football game to go to tonight! 
 
What he's doing now:
 
Charlie weighs 20 lbs and 7 oz (34%) and is 30.75" tall (50%).  He's so much smaller than my other two.  He's not too interested in eating and never has been.  We've struggled with taking a whole bottle and now we will struggle with table food.  As of today, I've completely weined him off the bottle...I'm hoping it will go ok!  So far so good.  I was only giving him a night time bottle for the past two weeks and he hasn't missed it.  He loves to be fed...typical male:)  He doesn't try to grab the spoon nor knock it out of your hand.  If he's done he moves his head to the side and says "no-no."  He will have to eat on his own eventually.  He does seem to throw just about everything I put on his high chair on the floor...boo.
 
Milestones:  Charlie is NOT interested in walking...he's just started scooting a long furniture just a tiny bit.  He has only stood up (by himself not holding anything) maybe a couple of times.  He's no where close to walking.  But he sure is fast crawling!  He still doesn't put much in his mouth..really a low key easy baby so far.  I know a one year old brings on a lot of frustration though. He's talking more.  Some words are mama, dada, ball, no no, more (rarely)...I'm sure there are more I just can't think of any right now. 
 
Play:  He is OBSESSED with balls.  I've never seen anything like it really.  Although he's small now, maybe he will grow and be a little bigger than Josh and I:)  That's the main thing he is interested in...he will call just about anything with any kind of curviture a ball!
 
The night before one!
 
Even though it's a very busy day, we had to celebrate a little this morning.  Waffles for Charlie in a fun birthday high chair!  Of course, he didn't eat hardly any of the waffles.

 
  

 


 

 

 

 

Best shot!  They love him so much!

 

Of course, I got these shots over the weekend.  Last little tie for this one:(

 

 

 



 



 

 

 
We love you Charlie!

Be The Good

Being in first grade brings on homework!  Luckily they ease you into it, because so far it hasn't been THAT bad.  Colt has a reading test on Thursday and a Spelling test each Friday.  So far, he's doing great in school.  
 
 



Highlands "moto" this year is "Be The Good"  Love this and teaching our kids there is Good in the World, not that they know there isn't quite yet.

Lunch with my Girl

I work right down the hall from Addie and Charlie. She asked me to eat lunch with her. I told her I would IF she was good when I had to go back to work. She promised me....don't trust a 4 year old!  I wish I could eat lunch with her everyday...it was good while it lasted. Silly girl!

Simple Love

She couldn't be any happier.  She loves taking care of Charlie and it melts my heart!
 

Charlie & Merritt

How precious these two are!  Charlie is almost 1 here and Merritt is 7 months old.  Enjoying a day at the park and these two are total opposites!
 
 

Ball in hand...always!

The Countdown is On to ONE

I think we are ready!...Ok, not really but it's coming whether we like it or not!  This is an outfit my sister made Colt for his first birthday!  I'm so glad we are able to use it again...who would have thought!  Charlie is just so precious in it!

Back to School Bash

The neighbors got together and rented several water slides and blow ups for a back to school bash right in our front yard (park).  It was fun!
