Here are lots of pictures of Charlotte (in an attempt to appease you for our long blog absence... well, long for me, anyway).

This is Charlotte on the day she supposedly rolled over. I don't buy it because I haven't seen it with my own eyes yet.

I may or may not have let Charlotte lick a little bit of dark chocolate.

Family trip to Copper Harbor.

Snuggling with Daddy.

What is Charlotte thinking?

Family trip to Marquette.

She looooooves that monkey.

Roll Over

Look how strong I am!

Charlotte is three months old today!
She can do really cool things now, like hold her head up, sit in her Bumbo seat, laugh and smile at herself in a mirror (for very long periods of time), and sleep through the night (11 hours last night- WOO!).

For Auntie Amy- this is the cutie outfit you bought her!

With Aunt Bernie. My stepdad's aunt and uncle live just 45 minutes away from us, so whenever the family comes to visit we head over and have a big party!

Bundled up for a run with mommy- with socks for mittens, a pumpkin coat, and way too big boots

For our Sunday School kickoff at church (Kyle and I are teaching the first ever young adult class!) we had a tailgating breakfast in the parking lot and were supposed to wear sports team apparel. Here's our little Cubbie bear!

Once Kyle saw her, he said she looked like a boy, so I added this red bow.

Charlotte had her two month check-up today (even though she is almost three months... long story). She now weighs 9 lbs. 12 oz. and is in the 25th percentile for her weight. And she is 23 inches long and is in the 75th percentile for her height. Tall and skinny. Just like someone else in our family. Not me, obviously. I still can not get over that Charlotte STILL is not as big as Kyle was when he was born (11 LBS!!!!).

The doctor told us that Charlotte might be cutting her first tooth this early (she's kind of drooly, cranky, and addicted to her pacifier). And she also told me that Charlotte might be ready to eat rice cereal (she has gone from eating 4 oz. bottles to almost 6 oz. bottles every 3 or 4 hours in like, 2 weeks). We will see about both over the next week or so. Those two pieces of information made me feel like- no!!!! she's still my little newborn!!!! I love her.

After Kyle's surgery our pictures are seriously lacking. Probably because I suddenly became a mother of two and Kyle only had one hand. But, we had a fabulous end of our vacation. Yesterday was our church picnic here at camp and it was so fun to finally go to church again. Last night we had dinner with a bunch of friends and it was so good to eat and laugh and watch home videos.

Charlotte in her hooded sweatshirt on the drive home- it was cold!

Charlotte and I after church yesterday

Charlotte bundled in her jean jacket from Auntie Megan and her flower hat from Grandma Lynn

What a cutie!
