A day in the life of Charlie

Several people have asked my Mom, "How is Charlie? How do you like staying home all day? What do you do all day with him?" so I decided to give you a glimse into a typical day with me and my Mom. First I have a bath and get snuggly warm in my towel.

Next my Mom dresses me in a very cute, but manly, outfit that is still a little too big for me and combs my hair.

This can be a little taxing so I take a snooze.

Then comes my kick boxing on the floor followed by another nap.

Next...TUMMY time! I love it I tell you!

By now I have worked up quite the appetite so it's time to eat:)

After I eat I just relax and let the food settle nicely in my tummy.

And this is where the magic happens people! This is where I make my's rough being so talented at such a young age!

Next I take a break in my vibrating lounger so my Mom can continue with the laundry and cleaning...all that boring stuff.

Now it's time for jammies which I love!

After a long day I like to snuggle with my Dad when he gets home from work/class.

We both have had such busy days we end up crashing together:)

Finally it's back to bed for me, Mom gets me just the way I like, on my side, and it's sweet dreams until it's time to eat again.

Now I want to let you know that I did eat more than once, but I thought it would get a little redundant so I only mentioned it once. Also, I took SERVERAL bathroom breaks througout the day but decided to spare you the messy details. Well I hope you enjoyed this and thank you all for joining in my journey:)

I'm sorry but I had no choice but to post these pictures! I just love my little guy and think he is the cutest ever! The first picture is him in his jammies playing with Mom and Dad before his bath. The next two are of him clean and smellin' good! Isn't that outfit to die for...what a handsome little guy...can you tell I'm his #1 fan!

My Hair!

On Saturday while Jack and I were at the temple my wonderful mother babysat Charlie for us. I figured since we were down there I could have my Mom cut my hair because I was getting really tired of looking at myself in the mirror. By the time she was finished my hair was 6 inches shorter and I felt like a new woman! Thanks Mom!

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Hall

On Saturday one of Jack's old mission companions, Elder Ross Hall, got married. We were lucky enough to be invited to the temple ceremony and it was beautiful. Congratulations Ross and Brittany, we love you both!


This weekend we got to have Jack's brother Pat and his family come visit. We had an awesome dinner, made forts with the girls, watched "Karate Kid", and had a sleepover! It was a blast! Thanks for coming down guys, we will miss you so much when you move to Texas:(

Remembering September 11th

In remebrance of September 11th I want to thank all the troops who fight for our country every day to keep it free. I want to especially thank my sweet husband for all the years he served in the Marine Core. He just got out in January of 08 after serving 8 years. He luckily did not have to do a tour in Iraq, but many of his good friends did and to them I am grateful! Here are some pictures of Jack serving in different places over the years. Picture 1)Jack in the Ukraine at an open-air fish market, 2)Bridgport Ca. 3)Jack and I at the Marine Core Ball in Novemeber, 4)Jack in Israel training with the IDF, 5)Jack in Japan on Mount Fuji.

Just Chillin'

We have a huge love sack as many of you know and we always take pictures of our family and friends jumping on it...well this is as close as we can get of Charlie jumping on it. He loves to just chill in the middle of it so I thought I would post his love bag experience:) (Look at those skinny little legs...I promise I'm trying to fatten him up!)

All Smiles!

Chalie has been all smiles the past few days and today I finally cought some of them with the camera! He is the happiest little baby there ever was. He eats and then we just hang out all day making goo-goo eyes at eachother...I LOVE being a Mom!!!

First Drive-In

Charlie went to his first Drive-In on Friday. We went with our ward and saw Wall-E and King-Fu Panda...It was a blast. Charlie slept through the whole thing which was nice and I just wanted to post a picture of him in his cute Fall outfit with his Daddy. (We didn't get any pictures at the actual event, but this is right before we left:))
