HI!!!! What’s up readers!  My name is Charlotte and I am filling in for my mommy this month.  She said something about being “swamped” with out of town visitors and working and planning a party and freaking out about how big I’m getting, soooo… I’m doing the writing this month. Here I am!

I turned six months old last week, so I went to the doctor last week where they weighed me, measured me, and stuck all these things in my ears and mouth…

IMG_5257They said I am very tall—in the 90th percentile for length {27 inches}, 50th for weight {16 lbs}, and 25th for head…

Everything was going fine until I got FOUR pricks in my legs…

IMG_5255FOUR!  I didn’t do anything to them but grin and drool, and they poked me FOUR times!  And after that, mom & dad even laughed a little because I was so pitiful, which I really didn’t appreciate.

Clothes: I am wearing six to nine month clothes, especially in footie pajamas—I need LONG pjs!  I still wear size 2 disposable diapers and mommy just ordered me new size 2 cloth diapers in pretty colors.  Mom still puts alotta bows and headbands on me and every once in awhile I think, “I’ll show her"!” and I pull them right off.  But then they cover up my eyes and I freak out, so that kinda comes back to bite me.  Most of the time I just indulge her and keep them in.  It’s better than being called a boy, I guess.

IMG_5168Food: I started eating oatmeal when I turned five months.  It was weird and watery and I didn’t know what to do with it, but now that it’s thick and creamy, I love it!  Mama says I get to try PEAS next.  “Peas please!,” she always says… And I still drink three bottles of milk a day, and one bottle of formula at bed time. I am a pro at holding my own bottle.

IMG_5140Two big things this month: I learned how to put my paci in my mouth and I got a bumper in my crib.  Apparently these are life changing events for mom & dad.  No more dropping pacis out of my crib or crying for someone to come give them to me!

IMG_5151IMG_5164But it doesn’t stop me from trying to find you!

DSC_0568My fingers are ALWAYS in my mouth and I am always soaking wet with drool… But no teeth yet!  Mom says that’s good because she loves my “gummy” smile and the doc says it means I will be tall!

IMG_5004IMG_5010IMG_5013I went to Annapolis for my first Fourth of July… I met Tank {who tried to eat my toes A LOT}, I danced with Kristin and Liz, and I wore this really cute seersucker dress…

IMG_5041I’ve fallen asleep on Mommy a few times lately.  I don’t do this much because she taught me that “I am supposed to sleep in a crib!” so I get really confused when she doesn’t let me sleep in my crib!" But again, every once in awhile I indulge her…

IMG_5081I am obsessed with this pink pig that Aunt Landon gave me… It makes me laugh upon site every time.

IMG_5087I got to play with my Grandma Debby a lot…

IMG_5090I am a great sitter!  Probably because Mom puts me like this every time I get on my hands and knees… “Let’s work on immobility!,” she says…

IMG_5202Immobility what?

IMG_5092Some other fun facts from the last month… I am still ridiculously happy every time I wake up.

IMG_4969…I love riding on mommy & daddy’s shoulders…because it allows me unbridled access to their hair…

IMG_5100…I went to my first wine tasting…

DSC_0712And I have been practicing all of mommy’s Stroller Stride moves…

I am a pretty happy, easy baby as long as I’m not tired.  I love Mommy & Daddy a lot and I’m pretty sure they love me…

That’s all for now—Happy August! See you soon…
