6th Month Day

Our little man has been with us now for 6 months! I can't believe what our lives would look like without him. Charlie is such a joy. His personality is exploding with each passing day. He is sitting up now all by himself, which is so fun to watch. He also loves to make fart noises with his mouth (that is the only way I know to describe it). He keeps drooling like crazy, but no new teeth yet. He likes squealing and talking throughout the day. He has the sweetest voice I have ever heard. Charlie still does not like rolling over so he does it rarely, usually assisted:) But it's not like the pediatrician in the house is worried, so why should I be? We purchased a new large rug for our living room in hopes that it will give Charlie some extra room to roll around and crawl when he feels ready. Charlie is learning to enjoy foods. He is eating fruits, veggies, and cereal. We will give his stats after his 6 month check up on Tuesday. We enjoy every moment the Lord gives us with this precious gift.

Playing in the toy basket
He loves to cross his legs...he does it constantly just like his daddy:)
He loves playing piano with his daddy!

6 month "birthday cake"
He loves fire...probably more than the carrots themselves.
He puts everything in his mouth, even the glass jar.
And the candle (we are going to have to watch him like a hawk esp. once he is mobile!)
Ready for bath time! Once he hears the water running he starts smiling:)
Scrub a dub dub! Happy 6 months Charlie!

Trip to Jackson

Our trip to Jackson Hole, WY was fabulous! We had a wonderful time skiing, eating, and spending quality time with family. Jackson Hole was beautiful! Charlie did very well traveling out west. This picture was taken at around 5:45 AM, our bright eyed boy was ready for the da' plane:) He was so cute all day, even with a layover in Salt Lake City.

Our room!!!

Charlie in his new snow bunting outfit, Charles kept referring to him as the Inuit Indian.

Our first day on the slopes! No falls, but it wasn't always pretty (at least for me).

Cross country skiing was one of my favorite parts of the trip. It was great exercise and very comical. At one point my crash caused Charles, Mary and Michael to fall as well. We were all laughing in the snow, especially me due to the crazy position I was in. We also saw 2 moose from a distance. And Charlie napped the whole 3 hrs were were gone, which was nice for our great babysitters (thanks RaRa and aunt Judy).

The whole gang at Aunt Biba's and Uncle Johnny's

Our family on the slopes...and no, Charlie did not ski even though Charles wanted to take him.

Our precious little man!

Great food! This is seared tuna Chuck cooked perfectly for us.

Gettin' hot in the hot tub

Yes, this is us in the snow in our swimsuits making snow angels!

Playing in the snow after sleding.

Downtown Jackson, on our way to go shopping.

While shopping Charlie met Sasquatch:)

The fam.
We were leaving for the airport while the rest of the family hit the slopes. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation (well, maybe more sleep). Thanks to all that made this trip so amazing!

Our last view of Jackson....BEAUTIFUL!
