6 Months!

We have a half-birthday-girl at our house!  Wow!  I would say, "Where did the time go?" but Charlotte Rose is such a part of our family now, it seems she's been with us forever.  Highlights of the past month:

-Charlotte has become quite mobile, rolling wherever she pleases.  Time to get the baby gate up at the top of the stairs!

-She still has smiles for all, especially Forrest.

-She hasn't started to babble yet.  (Goodness, are we going to have another late-talker around here?)

-She went on her first vacation to Wisconsin, enjoying the destination if not the ride to get there.  What a long ride that was!

A quilt gifted from Grandma Rosemary.  Her mother embroidered the donkeys and pieced the top.  Then Grandma had it quilted in Champaign recently.  What a special thing!

Moved on to the big girl seat in the stroller.  Yep, Forrest is walking or riding his bike.  After the initial protests, he seems to not mind.  

In other news, Baby Will was born last week.  What a long-awaited blessing!  Can't believe I don't have a picture of him.  He's tiny with fuzzy yellow hair!  Looking forward to getting to know that little boy.
