6 Months Old!

Who's that?!

Chompin' on her yummy.

All smiles for the camera.

A little tummy time.

Charlotte LOVES her ducky.

So, I'm obviously not the world's best blogger. It's hard to find a spare minute to blog, I'm really not sure how all these moms do it, maybe there's a secret I'm unaware of...if so please fill a sister in!!! My goal is to post at the very least once a month...maybe that could be my New Years Resolution. Maybe. In all honesty when I do have a spare moment blogging just doesn't seem to be making it to the top of my list....who wants blog when you could snuggle up on the sofa with your hubby in the evening? Not me!

So, Christmas is right around the corner and Santa has been working very hard to make it a memorable one! We're having Christmas at our home this year and I'm thrilled! It will be nice not to have to travel this year and just be at home with our family. Plus we'll have left overs for days and that means momma doesn't have to cooooooook! Merry Christmas to ME!

As you can tell, I define my life with how old Charlotte's not December it's 6 Months. I guess that happens when you're a momma. She's really hitting a lot of milestones this month. She's sitting up all by herself....she does fall over sometimes, but for the most part she's sitting! She really does not like to be on her belly for long, so I'm not sure how long it will take her to crawl, maybe she'll just start walking and skip crawling all together...who knows! She really likes to sit on the sofa like we all do...I think she just likes to be like the rest of her family.

She's eating big girl food in the evening, she loves bananas....oh how she loves bananas. She gags when she eats peas, she loves sweet potatoes, peaches and prunes (go figure). We're actually very glad she likes prunes....gets the digestive system flowing. Until you're a mom you don't understand how happy you are to see a poopy diaper.

She's been so great about sleeping, this girl loves to sleep in...she'll sleep until 8:30am some mornings and she goes to be at 8pm. She must get that from her momma!! Naps on the other hand are touch and go, she'll go down for a morning nap....but an afternoon nap is hit or miss. Poor girl gets so tired, but it's like she doesn't want to miss a thing, like another episode of Yo Gabba Gabba. (If you have kids you know the pain I'm talking about). I know all the words and the songs continuously play in my head..."Don't, Don't, Don't Bite Your Friends....".

Her hair is turning blonder by the day. When she was born it had a touch of red in it, and still does if the light hits it right or if she has orange or red on, but for the most part this chicks got blond hair and blue eyes....her daddy may have himself a little problem when she's about 15. Thank goodness for big brother Evan to watch out for her!!

Well, I guess my next post won't be until after the New Merry Christmas and Happy New Year........I hope Santa brings you everything you want and you all get to spend time with the ones you love. (All together now....."Awwwwwww").

Love to all!

The Owen Family
