17 months


Charlotte is always learning new things and growing so fast! She is sprouting new teeth constantly. It's been one molar after another. She says "Cheese"(or something close to it) for the camera now. She tries to say backpack. She is getting close to saying all kinds of things, I can tell it won't be too long now before the verbal explosion. She is wild and loves playing rough with Daddy. She wouldn't dream of being left out from anything that Tucker does. She often goes into a room by herself and shuts the door only to emerge a few minutes later smelling suspicious (poopy)and often brings a clean diaper out with her and hands it to me. I think she is ready to start potty training, but I am not sure how smoothly that will go with the big changes of a move and a new baby on the horizon. She is down to one nap a day now. She loves to make animal sounds and to be read to. She likes to walk around in big people shoes. She likes to dip her food. Hot dogs, chicken, fries. She learned how to get out of her crib about 2 weeks ago, but after one falling incident she hasn't tried to since that first day. She drinks milk from her cereal bowl. If you tell her she looks pretty she will automatically touch her hair. She jabbers and sings. She loves bath time with Tucker. When she is hurt she goes to her Dad first. She loves to blow raspberries on exposed skin. She likes water and playing on the trampoline. She is a beautiful, smart, little angel. She gets very concerned when people are sad, she likes to kiss them or hug them better. Especially Tucker. I am so blessed to have her in my life. I am so grateful for my perfect children.

Other tidbits.
We had stake conference this past Sunday. Elder Flukinger and Elder Jensen of the Quorum of the Seventy spoke. I especially enjoyed Elder Jensen as a speaker. The choir sang beautifully and the congregation sang the loudest and most heartfelt of any I have heard. Tucker was a little disappointed that there was no primary and spent about 45 minutes of the meeting snoring on my lap. It was a wonderful Sunday.

Last night my mom gave Tucker a Batman mask. He put it on the second he woke up this morning.

drinking from her cereal bowl is hilarious, she seems like such a grown up now! I had fun hanging out with the kids yesterday one day Charlotte will teach me sign language...

Like I have said before, I love reading about your life because I can see what mine potentially could be like with more than one kid. Molars, potty training... wow, you do it all. You amaze me.
