Milestones and Then Some

Lots of goings-on around here!

Over the last eleven months, Charlotte has gone from a sweet, adorable 2.75 year old to a 21 year old who knows everything. She's still sweet and adorable, though. And what a pistol!

Milestones reached:
-Big girl bed! No more floor bed.
-Pre-school three mornings a week
-Made Jiffy corn muffins start to finish all by herself (I did measure the milk)
-Carved her first pumpkin
-Went trick-or-treating with kid friends
-Draws stick figure families
-Practically self-sufficient in most daily tasks
-Shot up several inches over the summer and now stands as tall as my waist
... and I'm sure plenty of other things that have escaped my memory.

Charlotte LOVES her baby sis. She would spend hours a day holding her, if only the baby would just stop crying.

Introductions are in order!

Appearing for the first time, Miss Julia Ruth!

After an uneventful but very hot and sweaty pregnancy (North Carolina summer for the third trimester - what was I thinking?!), this crazy-haired little girl joined our family September 10th. 

Now seven weeks, she's proving herself a wonderful addition to the family.

Birth story and plenty of pictures and updates to follow!
