the big 3-0

it happened.
a new decade.

and fly boy truly outdid himself this year.

he woke me up (before charley got up) with his traditional, delicious breakfast in bed.

we went to dinner to my favorite restaurant in town with my brother and sister-in-law.
jess even made me a cake...yellow with chocolate frosting, my favorite!

since our birthdays are only 2 months apart, we decided to take a mini vacation to celebrate both of us turning 30.  just for the weekend, we went to a nearby beach, stayed in a fantastic hotel, and really had a perfect weekend.

only being an hour away, we took our time saturday morning getting packed, but were still able to spend several hours at the beach and pool in the afternoon.  the hotel had a wonderful restaurant, so we didn't have to travel far, just took the elevator down to the 1st floor.   and charley was a doll.

i couldn't have asked for a better birthday.
i would say i'm not sure how i am going to top it for fly boy's upcoming birthday, but i have a few tricks up my sleeve as well.  ;)

charlotte 7 months

hello october!
(and my apologies for the lack of posts in the last month.)

our baby girl is seven months old.

not a whole lot has changed in the last month, except...
- she has one bottom tooth and a second bottom tooth coming in. (and boy is it sharp!)
- charley has learned to click her tongue and loves to click anytime she is hungry.
- we've started with baby food...charley loves every fruit she has tried (bananas, pears, peaches, mangos, apples, etc.) she does not like rice cereal. oh, and charley LOVES water.

i can't get enough of her.  we truly are blessed with a sweetheart.
i actually miss her when she goes down for a nap or to bed.  it's ridiculous.
she's a much lighter sleeper than she used to be, so i know that if i even open her door, she will more than likely wake up and want to cuddle.  there may have been a few nights while fly boy was out of town last week that i purposely went in to "check on her." i was then rewarded with an extra 30 minutes of mommy-daughter time when she surprisingly woke up.

she's not the biggest fan of looking at me while i'm taking pictures, but why would you want to look at a big goofy lens when there is a world of details (and a funny golden retriever) to watch?  :)
