Hanging out with Robyn and Dom!

She loves the swings and then she falls asleep in them!

Dominic! Don't climb out!!

Fast friends :)

My friend Robyn came up to Lakewood to hang out and we took our kids to the park! Dominic is a little more mobil than Charlotte but they'll be running around together in no time!!

Rainy Days and New Friends!

Lil C LOVES dogs, all sizes and shapes! She doesn't discriminate!

Big dog...big licks!

Making friends with Zoey! Charlotte really wanted her pacifier!

A beautiful rainbow after a charming rainy day :)

It's been raining, raining, raining for the last 5 days! I love the rain, so I haven't minded it one bit! But it has kept us indoors quite a bit!

On Friday morning my neighbors woke me and C up to tell us that the tree in front of our house was tilting and I should probably move my car so it didn't get smashed! The root was sticking WAY out and the tree looked a little shaky! The city checked it out on Friday and took off most of the branches and came back on Monday to take the whole tree down! I've never liked that old tree so I'm kinda stoked to get a new one! Yay!

Going doooown....

This root wasn't there yesterday!!

They trimmed the right side of the tree on Friday to take off some of the weight.

It was pouring while they were cutting. His little bucket had inches of water at the bottom!

They came back on Monday to cut the whole thing down! Timber!!!

There she goes!

They were done is less than 10 minutes! Crazytown!

Just a little stump on Loomis! I'm going to plant some roses and other flowers! I can't wait for them to grind it down!

Sitting up, Standing up!

So, Charlotte started crawling and then the next day she was pulling herself up on her knees and two days later she was standing on her own and now she's cruising all over the house...holding on to the couch or our ottoman. I can't believe it! She looks so proud of herself, but she can't quite figure out how to get back down!

She loves looking at herself in that little mirror! She'll even figured out how to pull off the mic and shake it! Such a big girl!!

Sarah's White Coat!

We were excited to see Sarah get her white coat tonight; she's another step closer to becoming a chiropractor! So awesome! Getting the white coat was symbolic of her start at the clinic on campus. She'll finally be able to get in touch with clients and start testing out all that she's been learning!

Congrats Sarah! We were so happy to see you get your coat and to celebrate at dinner!

Happy 9 Months Baby Girl!

Charlotte, you're 9 months old today! It's crazy to think that you've been here in my arms for the same amount of time that you were in my belly! 18 months, a year and a half! I really can't remember life without you! Well, I do remember the naps :)

You started crawling in the midnight hour of your 8th month...I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but Kevin was obsessed, I mean obsessed with Charlotte crawling. He was afraid she would skip it entirely and go straight to walking. But wheewww...he's happy as can be to see your little self crawling all over house and home!

Well, in the last month you celebrated your first Christmas and New Year' didn't make it up until midnight (Thank Goodness!) but you made it though the Rose Parade :) Visited Kidspace and had your first celebrity siting!

Now that January is here...I'm in full birthday planning mode! I can't believe that you'll be 1 year old in just 3 short months. You are turning into such a little girl, so independent, a wonderful cuddler (my favorite feature) and you're getting quite a bit of hair! Finally!

Happy 9 Months Charlotte! You're a beautiful, loving little lady :)

My Little Disaster!

She looks innocent enough...

Quick like a rabbit!

Yoga? Downward Dog? You go Charlotte!

Now what?!

Looks like she might just dance right off the table!!

So, changing Charlotte's diapers, clothes, shoes, socks...anything! Has become quite a challenge! The minute we put her down she's shimmy shakin' all over the place! Looks like we'll be changing a lot of diapers on the floor from now on! Or else she might sprint off the dresser!

FYI - Kev was inches away from her if she tried to jump for it...but she didn't! Thank goodness :)

Hello 2010!

We didn't quite stay up until midnight...

Hey Baby!

I love Charlotte and Kevin in funny glasses, it's an obsession!

The ladies of the night :)

2010! That's crazy! 2009 was quite a year, it brought me little Charlotte Rose, someone I've been dying to meet since 2008! I feel closer to Kevin than I ever have before and as a family we feel complete. Another baby in the future would be amazing times amazing, but if lil C is all that happens for us then that would be just fine :)

Bring it on 2010! I can't believe in May it will mark 10 years since I started dating Kevin! That doesn't even seem possible! But I can't imagine a day without him.

Love you all! And Happy New Year!
