Charleigh is one!

I can't believe that Charleigh is already one! The year has flown by! She is such a good baby. She is so sweet. She is always giving open mouth kisses to everyone. She loves her sister and looks up to her more than anyone. Her first word was "A-yet" which translates to Elliot and she always has to know where Ell is and what she is doing. Elliot is just as sweet with her too! Always looking out for her. They are so much fun.

Char is also walking so she is in to everything. I think she may be the smallest walking person on earth! To go with her sweet side, she has an ornery side. If you turn your back on her she will bolt to some where she isn't supposed to be. She is talking quite a bit now too. She loves puppies (they are her rock stars). She just has the funniest personality. There will be lots of fun silly years to come with these two girls!

Here are some pictures of Char's party and I'm out of practice so the pictures are out of order.

4 Months of Catching Up

Well, since I last posted, Elliot has turned 3 and Charleigh had turned 7 months. Elliot is sounding out words and if you give her a word she will tell you what it starts with. Charleigh is already crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything! She is just 7 months! She is trying to keep up with sister. Here are a few pictures from the last 7 months...

We have been very busy in the last month. We moved into our new house and went on vacation. On Father's Day weekend, we headed down to DFW to introduce Charleigh to our friends. We love living close to our families, but we really miss our friends in Keller, so it was really great to spend time with everyone. We went to the zoo and a Ranger game and had a great time. The girls were awesome travelers! Here is our trip summed up in pictures...
