Cousin Joshua, nurse Zachy, and "Charlos"

Alli loves taking care of Charlie and being the big cousin. From the time he was a baby she would stand about an inch from his face and say, "Hi my sweet cousin!" Even after Jen came home from the hospital Alli would call Joshua "sweet cousin!" I am pretty sure now she has learned to call him her brother.

We were hanging out at the Menlove's a few weekends ago and I heard the funniest, cutest conversation as the kids were in the playroom.
Alli: "Okay, Zachy, you be the doctor."
Zachy: "No, I want to be the nurse."
Alli: "Okay, I'm the doctor and you're the nurse Zachy."
Zach: "Otay!" (while holding Mr. Cuddles and sucking his thumb)
Alli: "Charlie can be sick... Charlie boy, come over here."
Alli: "CHARLOS, CHARLOS, come and play doctor."

10 months

This picture says it all! Charlie is a total wiggle-worm, crawling all over the place and climbing up on everything. He is the happiest kid around. He loves going on wagon rides to get the mail with dad. He actually said "Dada" while Adam was out of town but we have not heard him say it since then. Our boy has 8 teeth and more on the way and his favorite thing now is blowing raspberries with all his excess drool.

Happy Easter!

We had a great time in Vegas over the Easter weekend. Charlie loved being with all his cousins. This picture of Reese, Clara, Audrey, and Charlie on the hammock shows how much fun he had.The big line-up for the Easter egg hunt.
Hailey was such a big help, she fed and played with Charlie every second she got.
After church on Sunday we went outside to take a few pictures. Charlie and Reese just wanted to play with Daisy... actually, Reese wanted to hug and kiss Daisy and Charlie wanted to eat her fur. My cute boys!
What's wrong with this picture? Easter Sunday family picture. Charlie and his Easter basket. He loved all the goodies the Easter bunny brought. He especially loved the "cat toys" and plastic squeaky chicken... sadly, the church books were his least favorite. We hope everyone had a great Easter... we sure did!

So proud of himelf...

Last week Charlie learned how to pull himself up in his crib. I was in the room when he did it for the first time and he stood there laughing forever!
