Charlie, Another month has passed and yet again, you’ve grown SO SO MUCH!! You’re becoming quite the little man and everyone who meets you just seems to fall in love! You are a continual reminder of God’s blessing. Likes: DaddyMommyFood (A LOT!

So far, Charlie has only had rice cereal and applesauce., but he loves his food! (Just like his daddy…) He grips the spoon with a vice-like grip and insists on helping himself…
During Charlie’s playtime the other day, I found him like this… In trying to reach his toes, he instead reached his socks and promptly put them into his mouth. Daddy and Charlie also came to visit me at work yesterday. We walked over the Highland Queen (a hot dog joint) and enjoyed some summer eats! (Charlie even had his first… View Post

I thought that it was just a bunch of citizens walking their animals in a line. They insisted that it was a big affair and boy, was it! We received… View Post

We grabbed the camcorder and the camera. We waited until he was in a good mood and mixed up a little bit of rice cereal (VERY… View Post
Charlie attended his very first MLB game last night – the Los Angeles Dodgers v. the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. He wasn’t a huge fan of the crowds, even though he is a social butterfly, but he was quite a hit with guests as he walked the park with daddy. A bunch of…highly inebriated…women were quite interested in holding… View Post
