The adventures of young Charlie

Today, Charlie and I went to the museum with some friends. We stayed a little bit later than our friends, and when we got out to our car, it wouldn't start. So we called Petie and he came over from work to give us a jump start. While we waited, we took some pictures in my car. Is this the cutest face you've ever seen? I love this shirt and this hat! Both super cute!
And a picture from our walk yesterday. He's finally getting used to his stroller!

Charlie IS growing!

Charlie had his 2 month appointment today.
The doc says he looks great and he is growing well. Here's his new vital stats:
His height is 23.6 inches (67%), weight is 11 lbs 6 oz (19%) and his head circumference is 39.2 cm (43%).
So he's tall and skinny and growing everyday! He also got a bunch of vaccine shots, and he did great.
Here's some pictures of my big boy!

Charlie is growing!

Charlie is having a growth spurt! This means that he wants to eat all the time! Even all night! So mommy and baby haven't gotten much sleep the last 3 nights. We are both super tired, but it means Charlie falls asleep at funny times. This morning, he fell asleep while I was giving him a bath. Then he feel asleep on his toy mat, looking at himself in the mirror. Handsome boy!

Charlie activities!

Hi y'all!

I get to watch Charlie when Bre goes swimming - we have lots of fun together.  Usually he reads the New Yorker to me, while I doze off.

This time Charlie started playing with his little play-area-thingy in a way I hadn't seen before - he's batting away at all the things, and sometimes (accidentally?) grabbing them!

It's super fun to watch.  And way less boring than the stupid New Yorker articles he's always reading to me.  What are they?  Like 30 pages each?

Anyway, here's a link to the video:

And here's the video itself:

Enjoy!  More to come soon.

Poppy's poker party

Every year, we have a poker birthday party for Poppy. This year, he turned 88. Charlie was the hit if the party. Here are a few pictures.
The poker tables:
And grandma Cookie and Holly, not playing poker.

Here's my Aunt sandi with Charlie. He looks like he's hatching an evil plot. Also, that cow dog is about to attack him.

Hi everyone! 

Charlie spent an 80 degree day at Huntington Beach today!

He was protected from the sun by an umbrella and his surf shirt!

We went to dog beach with auntie Bernie, for a long walk and fun in the sun!

Finally we went to a vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant where we sat outside to enjoy the Southern California sun!

Charlie and Poppy

My grandpa Poppy isn't much of a baby guy, but he sure does like Charlie!
This is beautiful!

Charlie meets his other Great Grandma

Charlie got to meet his other great grandmother, Barbara. It was a brief but wonderful visit. They were both so cute! 
Here are Pete and Charlie, waiting at the airport.
And here's grandmother and Charlie.
And here she is showing Charlie off to a TSA agent. He passed the cuteness inspection!
