18 Months

These last three months have really been a blur.  When I look back at the blog and I see how Charlotte has grown, it makes me HAPPY:)  Charlotte is getting to be a big girl and she is building up a vocabulary!!!  There really isn't anything she can's say.  I have a neice Hayle, well here lately Charlotte has been walking around the house saying,"Ayle -Boo".  If you decide to listen to this short video, scroll down to the very bottom of the page and pause the play list listed on the right side.  You may be able to click it quickly and hear it without pausing??

Charlotte is a smart little thing too... you can ask her where her nose, eyes, ears, arms, fingers, toes, mouth, teeth, and tongue are and she will point to it and say the name.  I need to make a video of Charlotte to show you how full of life she is.  Charlotte can hear Brian pull up from work and she starts saying "Da-Da" and when he walks in she dances and does the two step til she gets to him.  It is the sweetest thing to see.  When the girls come home from school, after snack time, they lay in the floor to read and Charlotte takes full advantage of floor time with them:)  She will walk up to one of them and kicks her leg over and sit on their stomach or back.  Then she  bounces up and down til whom ever she is sitting on begs her to get off.  I usually have to pull her off because she isn't very cooperative:)  I love to see all my girls play and have a good time.  I thank the Lord every day that He has given us this opportunity!!!

Charlotte had her 18 month check up this past Friday, and let me say it wasn't a good visit.  We get synages again this year for RSV and Charlotte got her first round of shots and a flu shot, OOUCH:(  Synages will be 2 shots every month for 6 months, this makes for a sad little girl.  But hey I am all for it if it keeps her healthy!!!  Last winter, Charlotte was hospitalized twice and I sure don't want to do through that again this year. 

Halloween was fun this year.  Our church always has a festival with trunk or treats, hay rides, face painting, food, and cake walks.  The children love it because they get to play with all of their friends and have a fun time.  The girls got to dress up and I wish that I had taken pictures of all of them, they were so cute.  Charlotte was a bumble bee, Lily and Emma were cats, Anna was a hippy chick, and Maggie was a bride (really wedding dress).
