Charlie - 21 months old

Charlie turned 21 months old on Saturday.  His 2nd birthday will be here before we know it.  He is so much fun at this age!  He is still obsessed with anything to do with tractors or "big trucks".  He is starting to love playing with little matchbox cars and my dad built him and Collin a table with a garage and ramps that they can put their cars on.  As long as someone is in the same room with him, he will play with it for hours.  He is getting in a stage where he likes to hide from us.  It's cute but it will also freak you out when he never comes out and you have to actually find him which can take a while.  His vocabulary is expanding daily and he comes home from school each day saying new things.  He's starting to speak in 4 or 5 word sentences so it's really cool to hear what he comes up with.  He's also getting a little bossy.  He loves telling people exactly what they need to do, where they need to sit, and his newest phrase is "Go Away Mom".  I've sucked at taking pictures this past month so here are a few from this past weekend when he was hanging out with Uncle Bud and wanting to do exactly what Bud was doing.

12 Week Update

We went for our 12 week appt. yesterday and everything looked great!  We heard the heartbeat and saw the baby moving around like crazy!  It was good to be re-assured that everything was ok after waiting 4 weeks.  We were told that we might get to find out if it's a boy or girl at our next appt. which will be Dec. 13th.  I'm super excited and can't wait.  What a great Christmas present that would be!

Halloween 2010

We started celebrating Halloween on Friday with the annual Downtown Trunk 'R Treat.  Charlie was so good and had a blast.  Everyone kept commenting on how well behaved he was and how good he listens.  We decided to just let him be "Charlie Brown" this year and since the weather was getting cool we had to do a modified version and Charlie Brown wore pants and a long sleeve shirt.  He was still super cute!

Charlie was scared to death of the man dressed like an M&M but thought this monster that pulled his head off was hilarious!

We spent Saturday afternoon at our church's annual fall festival with my mom, Chris & Collin.

Afterwards, we went to Chris & Taryn's to walk around their neighborhood.  The kids are still kinda too young to go to random people's houses for candy so we ended up just pulling them in the wagon and watching all the other kids.
