I feel like I just wrote Charlotte’s last time capsule. The harder I try to hold on to these last moments of her first year, the faster they seem to fly right past me. How can she be 11 months already???
Memories for Charlotte’s Time Capsule this month:
-Charlotte started clapping this month! It is so sweet watch her give herself a round of applause after she practices standing all by herself. She’ll also give a high five (kind of). :-)
-Turbo Speed: that moment when she sees something she wants across the room and starts crawling in high gear. She’s crazy fast. I love it.
-The couch has become Charlotte’s favorite place to play because she can cruise alongside of it to get from place to place.
-She is soooooooo close to walking! I love holding her hands and watching her take steps…she leads me all over the place. I can’t imagine how different it will be when she’s taking those first steps without holding on anymore.
-Um, look at all those teeth!!!!!!! She’s using them to eat a variety of finger foods now (without the funny faces!). And occasionally, I have received a little love bite or two. Gotta work on that.
-This one’s my favorite…Charlotte has loved giving kisses for awhile now, but this month she’s learned how to give raspberries on my cheek. It’s such a sweet, slobbery treat and I could just eat her up!
Sooo, I’m having a hard time as we approach the one-year mark. On one hand, I’m excited for the next phase, toddlerdom. But on the other, I’m so so so sooooo emotional about Charlotte leaving her baby days behind her. I’m not ready. Not one bit. Someone hold me! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Don’t forget that this month is Senior month for Kindness for Callie! I can’t wait to hear about all of your acts of kindness! Please click on the tab at the top of the page for more info about the K4C project :) Thank you always for your support!
