charlie, three months.

Last week you turned three months old, Charlie. How is this possible? You have changed so much, so quickly. I hate that the weeks seem to be flying by so fast, but I'm also so excited for each new milestone and am fascinated by the little parts of your personality that are becoming more revealed with each day.

You rolled over for the first time last week, from back to front. You caught us a little off-guard with this one. I think you caught yourself a bit off-guard as well and were not a very happy camper when you found you'd rolled yourself right into tummy time. But still, you did it over and over, practicing your new skill.

A couple of times in the last month you've teased your dear, sweet mother with 7 hours of consecutive sleep. Seven! What a reminder that sleep is such a sweet luxury! And while many nights are nowhere near that refreshing, we both seem a little less sleep deprived over the last month. You are still sleeping in the pack & play next to our bed. Your room just seems so far down the hall and you seem so little still (even though you're nearly 14 1/2 pounds!). Let's keep you near us for just a while longer. But we visit your crib every now and then for a photo or two.




We're beginning to wonder if we'll ever convince you to try a bottle. You just really don't seem to want that weird thing in your mouth. Fingers, however- you'll take all of the fingers all of the time.




We discovered this month that you really like being in the pool. You become like a little zen baby in the water.




You keep it no secret that you count this guy as one of your favorites. He keeps us all entertained (and looks stinking adorable in his "pretend glasses"). He adores you so. My two loves.






You and your brother are regularly doted upon by your Gaga & Pappy (even when you're being a bit of a diva). I love watching you all together.



It's so much fun to love you and watch you grow, Charlie-girl! What did we ever do without you? We can't wait to see what the next month will bring!

spacing out.

On our first date I think it took me all of five minutes to pinpoint my favorite things about Will Zuill. He was cute. Funny. Fantastic accent. Geeky. (I really like that part.) It turns out his geekiness is contagious. These days, Henry watches every move that his Daddy makes and knows about many of the things his Daddy likes. And he, too, loves some of these same things- Doctor Who, Star Trek, and basically all things 'outer space'. The apple doesn't fall far.

Last week Will took a day away from the office so we could all go on a little road trip- guaranteed to satisfy curious minds big and small.








Charlie's level of excitement was not as impressive.





Thanks for checking in and seeing what we've been up to!
