We have ourselves a bonafide 6 month old! I can't believe it! She has gotten so big so fast it's unbelievable!
Charlotte Rose you are a such a big girl now! You've brought us so much joy and excitement. We didn't know what we were missing until you came around. You surprise us everyday with your humor, personality, curiosity, and love.
You had your 6 month well baby check up today, and you of coursed passed with flying colors. (Can you fail a well baby checkup?) You weigh 19.8 pounds, and are 27 3/4 inches long. Your head is 17 1/2 inches. That head size you can blame solely on your Daddy. Moma had nothin to do with that one. You're in size 4 diapers, and you're wearing 6 to 12 month size clothing. You are a chunk sister!
You have 2 teeth! Kind of. Your two bottom teeth are poking through, and it now officially hurts when you bite. Moma and Daddy can see them when you smile real big. I can't believe you have teeth!
Speaking of your smile... Oh my goodness when you smile, I die. You crack me up! You open your mouth real big, and stick your tongue out part of the way, and your eyes are all crinkly. Oh I just can't stand how cute you are.
And your laugh? I die again. You don't give it up easily, but when you do, I can't help but laugh with you. You laugh when I toss you up in the air, when I lift you up off the changing table, when Daddy smiles real big at you, when Keech walks by, and when we play "This Little Piggy" 9your feet are sooo ticklish!). You do this funny thing where you suck on your bottom lip. You look like a little old man when you do. Cracks me up every time!
You can sit up all by yourself now. Gabbie discovered this talent of yours when we were home last, and she was babysitting. You've had this little trick mastered since 4 1/2 months. I didn't think you were supposed to be able to sit up yet, but apparently Moma was wrong. You now sit up in carts, and in highchairs, and in the stroller. You always seem incredibly pleased with yourself every time you have the chance to prove yourself.
You can't crawl yet, but you're working on it. Right now you roll everywhere you need to go. I'll put you on the floor to play, and I'll turn around to get you more toys and you'll be on the other side of the room just giggling.
You are such a water baby! We go to the pool a lot with Miss Amie, Brayden, and Nicolas, and you have a blast every time. You love to chase Nicolas's noodle around the pool, and when you finally get it you wrap your arms and feet around it so he can't get away. And when he does escape, oh girl you are mad! You scream and flap your arms around like a crazy chicken. It's hilarious, but I always make sure I tell you not to act like that b/c I know that arm flapping won't be cute when you're two.
There's so much we have to learn about you, and you're already an amazing little lady! We can't wait to see who you become! We love you bunches and bunches Chickapea!
XOXO, Moma & Daddy
