Walkin'

When I picked Charlotte up from daycare on Friday, I was told that she had done a lot of walking that day. Sure enough, when I got her home, she walked all over the place. She continued the trend throughout the weekend. She even got to the point where she could stand from a sitting position without holding on to anything.

(You may be wondering what the red splotch is on her chin - seems she has some eczema)

We spent the weekend down at the lake with Judd's family. During the month of Feb. we celebrated Judd's grandfather's birthday, Charlotte's birthday, his cousin, Andrea's birthday, and his sister's birthday. We had one big birthday party on Saturday. Judd's mom was back to her entertaining self and hosted 20 people! We had a good time visiting with family and playing Guitar Hero. Charlotte got to sip sweet tea out of everyone's cup, ate Fritos and all sorts of other things that people handed her.

Saturday night she threw up in her crib. When I picked her up, she threw up on me. By the end of it, I had gone through 2 different sets of pajamas. We're not sure if was everything she ate on Saturday, a virus, or something else. We ended up leaving early on Sunday in order to get her home. She seems to be feeling better today.

Charlotte got a new table and chairs from Judd's parents for her birthday. We brought it home this weekend. It is just perfect for her. It has some flowers painted on the chairs and the table. She ate a little lunch sitting at the table yesterday. I was kind of shocked that she sat up in the chair and ate like such a big girl! Today I got some pictures of her with her table. However, she decided to test me by continuing to stand up in the chair. In fact, at one point (without prompting), she stood up in the chair and held her arms straight up to show me "How Big" she was. That was the end of table time for a while.

Oh my gosh-you and Judd are in for it now. These pictures could not be more adorable! She is such a big girl, though. Where's our little baby? I love the table and chairs. She is going to do so much playing, eating and creating at her little table. What a wonderful gift.

I didn't realize how tall she was til now! She looks like you!
I remember going to visit Meghan right when Owen was this age and was literally turning on the walking switch that week, and funnily enough, I think Meghan and I spent half the time telling Owen that there was no standing allowed on the chairs in the playroom!

Oh my gosh she's really starting to look more like a little girl than a baby. You either need to come visit again or send me a plane ticket, I miss you guys!

Yay for Charlotte walking! Boo for throwing up on you. :( I definitely have empathy there (been thrown up on 3 times since Saturday!) Hope she is feeling better!

Horray for Charlotte! What a momentous event. I'm so excited and can't wait to witness her new skill in person. She looks so proud of herself in those pictures.
