8 Months



Charlotte is a crawler! She went from nothing to Ms. Speedy in 1 day basically.  Easter Sunday, she decided was the day to crawl, mid week she decided to pull herself up on items and stand. So now we crawl (loves to chase Jack) and stands holding on with 1 or 2 hands.

She is in size 3 diapers and wearing 9 month clothing by Carter's or 6-12 months in Gymboree and 77 Kids. Shoe size 2. Chunky Monkey!!

The cage has been set up, her toys are inside and she plays.  2 kids on the move is newest challenge here.

Foods: we have been braver since she is our second and well Jack tries to feed her everything.  She has tried all veggies and they are mainly the foods we have been given her.  She has tried apple sauce, pear food, PUFFS, Biscuit cookies, and pizza crust.  I call her my guppy, she is like a fish when food is near, mouth open- begging for food.  She likes sitting in the highchair or toddler table set up in kitchen now.  Jack pulls out her seat and tells her to sit.

Reacts to TV now, like Jack, certain shows spark her interest.  Caillou is one of her favorites just like big brother?  Why do kids love that show?? Is it because most parents I know get aggravated by the show like us?

She has started to participate in MyGym classes more, climbing on things and rolling around.  She attends library with us and thankfully sits while I chase Jack around.  Swim class should be starting up soon.  I am sure she will be walking by summer vacation to the Shore.

I know I am repeating myself, but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE watching Jack and Charlotte together, he cherishes his sister and she idolizes him.  Lets hope it stays that way forever!
