Nearly There...

Dear Charlotte,

11 months have come and gone, and I can't believe how much you change on a weekly daily basis... I'm fairly certain that you go to sleep one night, and wake up the next night with an extra inch on your legs, or better yet, your hair. oh your hair... every time I brush it, you say, "Oh, look at that knotty hair..." , but really, I feel like it's "naughty" hair for tangling as much as it does. At least you don't complain about it.

This month has been filled with tons of playground time... or just hanging out "outside" time. If allowed, you'd be outside from sun up, to sun down and then some. You want to eat every meal outside, and just want to explore 24/7... and when doing this, you usually want to be barefoot. I'm fairly certain we're at this point where we judge how good of a day you've had, but how black the water in the tub is... usually we have to do two rounds of water filling. The first to get off all the filth, and the second to actually soak and have fun in.

We made it back to the States/Canada before we celebrated your 11 month "Gotcha Day"... you met your Great Grandma (Oma) for the very first time, your two aunts you had YET to meet, and all your cousins that come along with that. You have LOVED all the extra attention and your Mama has certainly enjoyed all the extra hands. I actually enjoyed a WARM cup of coffee the other day, the first of what I assume will be MANY while we're here visiting. You've just enjoyed kisses and hugs and snuggles, and can't seem to get enough... I don't blame you.

We're down to just a few short weeks until we see Dada, and you tell everyone, " in one month" when asked how long until. Oh, these weeks will FLY by, and we're nearly at the 12 month marker...the 1 year celebration, and we couldn't be more excited!

We Love You Sweet Girl,
Dada and Mama
