I had dreams of picture taking, blogging coffee drinking and a clean house!
By the time the wee one is ready for her afternoon nap the house is trashed. She has taken all of the snacks out of the cabinet, taken a bite out of every apple or tomato (which she thinks are apples) in the fridge, made a pathway out of toilet paper and managed to feed her baby some crumb she finds on the floor that is now stuck inside the baby's mouth.
I dont "let" her do these things. She is like a baby ninja. Quick and quiet. I will be putting socks away and when i come out the soy sauce is on the floor.
It really is crazy.
At around 3 months she fell asleep on this wonderful orange scarf of mine and has not let it go since.
At the same time I am so physically tired. I mean if i didnt eat so much i would be 5 pounds by now. The running around making sure things are picked up, the cat like reflexes it takes to make sure that whatever gymnastics this child is doing doesnt finish with a hospital visit and the CONSTANT" mommmeeee mommmeeeee".
My sweet baby is 18 months old today!!! 18 months!!
If i could take this baby and bottle her i would be a millionaire. She is so very loving and spicy all at the same time. My little Charlie is a cartoon character who really does make all of us laugh on a daily basis.
She is such a mash up of my older two.
Charlotte is smart like Jocelyn and funny like Callie. Man does she LOVE her big sisters. And we just LOVVVEEE her!
