I realize that we spend a lot of time on this blog with Lily stories. She's such a quirky, funny baby! But I feel like I must now talk about my Charlie a bit. He is just the world's easiest, sweetest, most lovable baby. He is SO good! He's happy to do whatever we want him to. He'll gladly sit for hours in the kitchen with me watching me do chores and bake. He smiles and laughs so easily. When he sees me, his whole face lights up and he breaks into a huge smile. He'll then follow me everywhere with his eyes and watch the doorway when I've left the room waiting for me to come back. I could not have asked for a better son. I often feel like I don't deserve the love and adoration he has for me. I hope I can be the kind of mommy he seems to think I am!
In other news, we got some serious snow here this weekend. I'm guessing there's about a foot and a half to shovel out of. Why do these storms happen on weekends? What a waste - we would have liked Daddy to have a snow day!
My sweet, sweet Charlie!
This playmat was handed down to us by a triplet mommy whose daughters spent time in St. Peter's NICU. I pulled it out the other day because I thought the babies were getting bored with their playmat. Charlie LOVED it! The first time I put him on it he stayed for an hour and 15 minutes smiling and staring at everything!
Feeding time! We've easily mastered the double feeding. Look at Joe go! (And look at the snow falling! That was just the beginning. Roger had the time of his life at that window yesterday.)
I forgot that we had these bathrobes, a gift from Aunt Linda. I found them in the closet yesterday and of course had to put on a baby fashion show. Lily doesn't look too thrilled though.
Note to self: Do not attempt baby photo shoots at 8:30 pm right before bath and bedtime bottles. Babies are tired, hungry and cranky. This is how we ended the picture taking - Charlie was trying to eat Lily and Lily was trying to eat the couch.
