Two Weeks

What in the two weeks already!?! Geez! Charlie has already begun to learn and grow; she is one smart little girl. She has the cutest personality, and here are a few things about her so ya'll can get to know her a bit better.

-She is the queen of milk mustaches. The celebrities in all the milk posters have nothing on her.
-She is a little night owl. She'll sleep all day and then around ten or eleven she decides to be all bright eyed for a good three hours straight. I, with my early to bed late to rise motto, have no idea where she gets this tendency and fully blame Seth even though he goes to bed early--like I used to. Grrr.
-She loves being swaddled. She will get a bit fussy and all we have to do is wrap her in a blanket and she quiets down. I foresee Linus-like security blanket issues.
-She must have some awesome dreams because she smiles and smiles while she sleeps. I just have to wonder what she dreams about--it must be her mommy.
-Charlie cries so little that the other day Seth decided not to pick her up when she started whimpering because he couldn't remember what her little cry sounds like. Love it. (And it didn't last very long. After two little cries he couldn't stand it and picked her up.)

And now for some pictures...

This is Charlie sleeping...dreaming of mommy.

Photo shoot!

Stop mom! What do you think this is? TMZ?

Charlie doesn't like my and Erin's attempt to accessorize. Her hat and shoes were a bit too big.

Charlie really does love Erin despite her look in this picture.

Sunday afternoon nap with daddy.

Charlie was totally showing off her muscles the other day. Do you see how she is plumping up her bicep? How vain!

Look at how I make Seth do everything! Work on his computer, talk on the phone, watch the baby. What a multitasker.

Charlie's first ride in her stroller. She had no idea what was going on.

Charlie's first bow. Do you think it looks a little heavy? We need to work out those neck muscles so she can hack it!

Bath time! Assume the position!

Erin styled Charlie's hair. I'm likin' the look!

So Fun. Makes me baby hungry. I'll just vicariously live it through you for the time being.

Erin said...

I'm so glad that she loves me!! That was a ton of fun! Can't wait to do it again! Oh, and I LOVE the bow. Did Seth like her hot hair?

She looks like such a healthy and happy baby! I'm glad Mommyhood agrees with Seth, you and her so well!

Erin said...

Tricia! Charlotte is so beautiful. I'm so sad that I missed the MarComm trip to see you in the hospital, but it's great to hear that you three are doing so well!

I don't know what makes me more jealous...that your tummy is flat two weeks later or that your baby doesn't cry.

Charlie is so cute, and she is looking very grown up.

baby bolke just kicked a bunch while I was reading this. I'm interpretting them as: I can't wait to meet Charlie! So...can I come this week?!
