Just a Swingin'

Yesterday was such a pretty day.  So on our way to the grocery store, we decided to stop by the park and give the swings a try.

Charlie LOVED to swing!  He laughed and laughed as I pushed him.

We started off with a little jacket, but it was so warm that I took it off.  We only stayed for 15 minutes, because I was worried about Charlie getting too much sun.  And since this was a spur-of-the-moment swing trip, I didn't have sunscreen handy.

But I do believe we will be going back on the next sunny day!

Want an Overload of Cuteness?

Click here and check out a few more of Charlie's six month portraits.  Frankie at Stylized Portraiture did a fabulous job and had Charlie laughing through the entire session.

Playing with Daddy

When Marc and Charlie are playing, there is always lots of laughter.  Here they are working on Charlie's balance and having fun along the way.

6 Months - UPDATED

I can't believe Charlie is six months old.  Wasn't this just yesterday?

UPDATE: And here is my little six month old - we had portraits taken this morning and this was posted on the photographer's Facebook wall.  How cute is our little monkey?!

Big Blue Eyes

We still don't know if Charlie's eyes will stay blue, but we will enjoy them while we've got them!

What's Going On?

We are now the proud owners of 72 additional feet of drain field for our septic system. 

Too bad Charlie's not older.  He would have loved the dirt piles and the backhoe in our yard. 

I was going to surprise Marc with a vacation to Ireland once I am done breastfeeding, but instead he will be able to continue to flush toilets and wash clothes.  I know that is a better deal, but it isn't nearly as fun.

The dogs are not allowed on the furniture in the living room - and they know that.  But we have suspected that Sandy has been breaking that rule when we aren't home.  And because her hearing isn't what it used to be, Marc caught her and snapped a picture on his iPhone.

What We Awoke To Last Thursday

But it was wasted snow.  Wasted because I still had to go to work!  No snow day and it was all gone by the time I got home.

General Cuteness

Yes, I know his leg is out of his pjs.  He was kicking so hard that he kicked the snaps wide open.  Strong legs!

What We Ate Last Week


Again, another hit.  I think Charlie would have eaten twice the amount if we let him.

Happy Valentine's Day!

There is a local photographer in Athens, Stylized Portraiture, who often does photo shoots for charity.  We first tried them out at Halloween, when with a certain donation to the Athens Area Cancer Auxillery you got a mini session for your child in costume and a print.  For Valentine's Day, it was a donation to the American Heart Association, a "Love Letters" mini shoot and 10 valentines.  Charlie's pictures were so good that I had to buy the digital images.  Behold the Heart Day cuteness, and have a love-filled day!

What's So Interesting?

Must be something good to capture his attention and him not move long enough for me to run go get the camera. 

Of course it's Lullabelle!  Charlie has really started to notice the dogs and follow them around the room.

Or just lay contently and stare.

Cuddling With Sandy

She must have been very tired to let Marc love on her.  She likes her personal space.

What We Ate Last Week


While Charlie liked - and ate with gusto - the carrots, with every first bite he got a funny look on his face.  It was as if he was expecting one taste and got another.
