Sorry I've been behind on posts. It's been a long few days. We spent Christmas up in New Jersey with Petes family. It was super fun! My favorite part was Charlie getting to hang out with his little cousin Sabas. That kid is the coolest. He's not even 9 months old, and he already weighs more than Charlie. Here's an amazing picture of them together, in their matching christmas outfits! They wear the same size.:)

Charlie's Kitchen!

We're going up to NJ for Christmas to see my mom, so Charlie got his Christmas present from me and Bre a few days early!

Here he is loving his new... KITCHEN!  It's super fancy, and lots of people got Charlie food and fruit and veggies to go with it for his Birthday/Christmas.

Here's a video of Charlie playing with his new kitchen - he makes a heck of a potato chip!

Charlie's Birthday Adventure

We've been promising Charlie a ride on the train at the museum for his birthday all week.  So, when Bre and Charlie went to the museum this morning and the train was out of order, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth!  So Bre did what any good mom would do and googled "where can my husband take my kid on a train".  When I got home from work, my mission was clear - get Charlie to the train at the mall in Cary!

Charlie in the train!  They gave him a sucker too!  He was more excited than he looks.

This mall has a whole store devoted to cookies and cupcakes.  YES PLEASE!

They have a carousel!  Charlie was super excited (not pictured).

They have those little coin-operated cars you can ride.  Charlie doesn't want to turn them on.  He just likes to hang out in them and pretend to drive.

After a long day, there's nothing better than relaxing after dinner with a snack of pepperoni and pears, watching some Dora with Dada.  Happy birthday little buddy!

Charlie has a playgroup we hang out with once a week. We had some of the kids over the other day, to play in the corn pool.

This is Sophie and Carly in the pool with Charlie.


Some of the other kids love throwing the corn!

Mall playtime

Charlie loves the playground at the mall. It's warm and dry, and he gets to climb on everything.

He liked to climb the helicopter, and then jump off the top!

My current favorite picture

I don't remember if I posted this picture before, but it's one of my favorites - Charlie and Wiki just chillin one morning from a few weeks ago when Bre was out of town.

It's my screen saver on all my computers because it makes me smile :)

Charlie loves to build towers. He especially likes to build towers of half and half at Elmo's, his favorite restaurant.

A few weeks ago I took Charlie to the Notasium (when we got the JUMP video).  But Charlie also got really into hats on that trip.  First I snuck this picture of me and Charlie in the mirror.

Then Charlie disappeared for a minute, and came back wearing this awesome pink hat.

You can see he's pointing at me.... because... I need to wear a hat, too, obviously.  So I asked Charlie to go get me a hat.  Here's what happened


Not my best look.  Oh well.

Charlie made Kristen and I get tattoos, and he has one too. But he wouldn't show it off. Now, he demands a new one every couple of days.
