1/2 birthday

My baby is 1/2 a year old!! Where has the time gone?
We thought it would be fun to have some family over for dinner and cake to celebrate.
We had roast beef, potato dumplings, green bean casserole, veggies, salad and a yummy homemade lemon strawberry cake for dessert!
Here's the table my wonderful hubby set, I thought he did a pretty good job!

This last month has brought many firsts!
We went to a combined fhe with quite a few couples from my stake back home and Charlie showed his mad texting skills!

he's starting to sit up on his own with a few falls here and there!

Had his first encounter with a dog, Joey (Vess & Angie's dog) A very cute dog I might add!

of course the Easter egg hunt started as soon as we had to leave to put Charlie down for bed, but here's everyone else!

This wasn't Charlie's first time to a park but he did go on the swing for the first time and loved it!

He would just stare at the sky and was really relaxed on the swing!

he had so much fun when Azzie joined him! They are the best of friends!

Typical Azzie!!

This last month has been wonderful as Baby Charlie has grown so much. We've spent a lot of afternoons going on walks around our neighborhood and going to the park with cousins and friends! My hubby and I love this little boy so much!

6 inches

I got 6 inches cut off on Saturday and it's such a big change!
I don't think I've had my hair this short since I was in elementary school!

To tell you the truth I was growing rather tired of having long hair and having to put so much time in blow-drying, brushing and straitening it. Don't get me wrong I love the way long hair looks but I needed a change. I really don't know what I can do with hair this short other than the style in the pictures but I'll learn!

the splash zone

So we recently got little Char a new big boy bathtub and the way he bathes has changed dramatically!!! Be willing to get soaked because this little boy loves to kick his legs and splash the water until his hearts content! The first time we tried out the new tub he discovered if he kicked his legs really fast that about half the water would get on mom and even more on the mirror and counter! With summer around the corner I can't wait to introduce him to swimming and kicking his legs in a pool!

starting solids

here's little Char taking his first bite, slurp was more like it!

It was a success! I was getting worried that he would completely refuse but after the first bite he wanted more! He was making his mom and dad laugh as he slurped the rice cereal like he was drinking out of a straw! So cute! I was telling my husband how it feels like time has flown by with this little one I mean he's eating solids now! how crazy!

Charlie's big boy chair

Baby Char loves his new highchair!

he's such a big boy now

Since Charlie will start solids pretty soon I have been on the hunt for a great highchair. I wanted something sturdy, durable and one that would match my families 'classic' style.
I decided to try out craigslist and KSL classifieds before
resorting to spending more money at a store.
Boy am I glad I did because we got a GREAT deal on this highchair... only $40!!
It's in perfect condition and the exact look I was going for, can't beat that!
