Standing Tall

Everything always seems to happen at once. This weekend Charlotte started climbing the stairs as well as pulling up. Today I caught her pulling up everywhere. It is like when she finally figures out how to do something she does it all the time. I am kind of the same way. I will do it until I get sick of it - like listen to a new song, crochet, scrapbook, whatever.

Anyway, Charlotte is doing so many things. She is very verbal and gabbers all the time. I am not really sure where she gets this from because her father is not a talker - I am only kidding. She can say several words - mama, dada (which she still won't really call us), baboo - wich is baby (and everything is a baby), uh oh (which is her favorite, especially when she throws something on the floor, and bye bye (most of the time she just yells out "BYE" really loudly and says it over and over again.) She just learned "dog" this evening calling them "daa." Up until now they were also called "baboo" - translation baby.

Charlotte also loves to sing. She will sing with the television, the radio, on her own and when Mommy and Daddy sing with her. She loves to make a little handle with her arm when we sing "I'm a Little Tea Pot." She also loves to clap her hands when we sing "If You're Happy and You Know It." It is amazing to think that this time last year she was still living in my belly and now she is doing all these things. It sure happens fast. Hard to believe I will be saying the same thing soon about my little boy.

No wonder everyone says to enjoy the baby stage. It really doesn't last, does it? :)

She's getting to big - we need to see her before she is walking all over the place. It's crazy how much she has changed in 4 months and it's even crazier that it's been 4 months since we've seen you guys...
