Summer re-cap

Summer is almost over! School starts Monday. I guess we have to go back so we can get to another summer. We have had an awesome summer. We have taken a couple trips, had some visitors, and just enjoyed our time with Charlie. He had his 15 month check up, he's 33.5 inches tall and 26 lbs 10 oz. The nurse said if he keeps growing like he is, he will be taller than Thomas (early to tell, I know, we won't plan our retirement on the NBA yet). Here's some pictures of the last part of summer:
Silly, silly boy!

Our little Spurs (and Mavs) fan is getting big

First time at the beach- Port Aransas

Texas State Aquarium- Corpus Chirsti
Eating burgers at Bob Hall Pier- the best burgers ever (well, behind the Chicken or Chicken Oil in College Station- they're still the best)
Sweet Boy!
1st band-aid-
that weekend he skinned both knees, an elbow and hit his forehead on the pool...and it begins
Evan and Michele visited for the day. We missed you Graham! The boys had a good time together. See you guys soon.
Grandma has taught Charlie so much- Thanks!
Science Place in Dallas- Thanks Nana (how does that sound, Mom?)
This morning Thomas got up with Charlie and he insisted on wearing his shoes with his PJs. Then I got up and he wanted to brush his teeth while talking on his calculator "phone." Time is flying but we are having so much fun.

The upside of teaching is definitely the summer. Thomas and I have loved the past couple weeks we have spent home with Charlie. We've done some visiting, had some visitors and are enjoying the summer.

Great Uncle Jack and Aunt Mary visiting from California. It was good to see them and had a good time with them here.

Playing with the Wii Fit. Charlie tries to mimic exercises while we do them. It's really cute!

Swimming in the big pool. In the second picture he really looks like a Daniel baby.

Thomas was going to give Charlie a bath and Charlie came running out with his shirt like this. We laughed pretty hard...

Grandma Daniel and I were planting and Charlie participated too. He apparently likes to eat dirt. A little dirt never hurt!
The same night Charlie swept the kitchen for at least 40 minutes. He would scream when the sweeper would get stuck on a chair and then he would keep on sweeping.

Keep enjoying the summer, I know we will!

Gettting Better at the Walking Thing

Charlie's getting there. Honestly I'm not in a big rush because I know we will be running all over the house when he really starts.

Not Walking for an Audience

This was taken a couple weeks ago when Charlie was taking a step or two. We thought we would show him off to my parents but he had different plans (don't they always!). He has such a great personality!

9 months already!?!?!

Last night Thomas and I were talking about how time has flown. It seems like yesterday we were planning a wedding and then trying to find pants to fit my growning belly and now Charlie is 9 months!

Charlie had a big weekend, he has mastered the pull-up. He tries everywhere, the exersaucer, activity bar, couch, Mom, Dad, etc. He is so proud of himself and we are too.

Here's some pictures from the last couple of months. We update the pictures on Snapfish more than we do here, so if it's been a while here check out Charlie's group (there's a link to the left). There is an updated Spurs watch Charlie grow picture.

Talking With Santa

Okay, so it's been a little while since the last post. Time kinda flew by once basketball started. Anyway, we took Charlie to go see Santa today. He seemed to really enjoy it. He didn't seem to mind waiting a little bit to see Santa as long as he had his chew toy in his mouth.

It only took him a couple of seconds to relax once he got on Santa's lap. They seemed to get along pretty quickly. After Charlie posed for the pictures he didn't waste any time in getting down to business. He let Santa know what all he wanted for Christmas. We tried as best we could afterwards to get him to tell us what he told Santa, but he wasn't talking.

We hope ya'll have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I have been trying to take a picture of Charlie's first teeth and finally got one by accident while he was playing.

Happy 30th Birthday, Thomas!

Thomas chose Charlie's outfit for his Birthday (I was okay with his choice because you only turn 30 once and Charlie is still too young to know better)
