First Hair Cut!

On Saturday November 28th Charlie went to get his hair cut for the first time. He didn't just go to any run of the mill establishment but Charlie went to meet Bobby, the same man that cut Josh's hair for the first time and the same man that still cuts Charlie's Pop's hair. Charlie did great for the most part, there were no tears but there was a lot of curiosity, which made for a hard time of keeping our little boys head still. After all was said and done Charlie looks much older, his hair is now out of his eyes and he still has some curls in the back.

Right before CP got his hair cut!
Look how long that hair is in the back!

One Messy 18 month Old!

I can't hardly believe it but Charlie is 18 months old and he is one messy and crazy little boy. These days he is all over the place climbing anything and everything that he can and pulling out anything and everything he can find. He is chatting up a storm, dancing all over the place and exploring his boundaries. I will have to say that I love this age so much there really is nothing better then when your child comes running at you, arms wide open and saying mommy!

Last Friday we took Charlie to see Dr. Joe for his 18 month checkup. Our little guy did so great and Dr. Joe could hardly believe how much he has grown in the last 6 months. The only issue we came across was that the tube in his right ear is looking as though it is coming out. Both Josh and I are hoping that when it does fall out we will not have to have it replaced. At his check up he had to get two shots, we decided to postpone his 2 vaccines and get the seasonal flu and he h1n1 shots instead. Dr Joe decided that was the best thing to do and that we would just wait a month and he would come in and get the 2 vaccines he missed. No real biggie it just means that Charlie will have to get shots again in just a few weeks. Below are Charlie's stats from his 18 month check up.

Look What Daddy Taught Me!!!

Not only have we accomplished the slide while sitting up, today I thought I would teach CP how to climb up the back of the playset to get to the top of the slide. He needed a little help on the first try but after that he was doing it all on his own. Now we just have to sit back and await the first broken limb.

Mommy gets Crafty!

I decided last week that I was going to pull out the sewing machine my mom had given me and teach myself how to make Charlie some pants. I bought a few remnants of fabric to practice on, the first pair didn't turn out so great so I just gave up on them and moved on to the second pair. Much to my surprise I finished them hem and all and they actually looked like pants. The only problem was that the fabric was quite hideous but that is what you get when you buy remnants. Since I was successful with those pants I decided I could buy some cute fabric and make a pair that Charlie could actually wear.

The finished product is below and I think they turned out pretty good, I still need to get a little bit better at the hem but I think that will come with practice. I am hoping to but my new skill to use and make Charlie several pants that will go with all the super cute shirts that his Aunt Molly has made him.
Happy little Guy!
Modeling his new pants!
Showing off a little more!

Trick or Treat!

Last night we took Charlie Trick or Treating for the first time, since he was only 5 months old last year and sick he didn't go out on Halloween. For Halloween Charlie went as a Train Conductor, and I am pretty sure he was the cutest train conductor there ever was. We only took him to about five or so houses before he had enough and wanted to be carried so we decided that it was time to come home. When we got home Charlie decided it was much easier to Trick or Treat from the bucket of candy at the house. About every five or so minutes Josh had to dump Charlies bucket back into the big candy bucket because he had moved all the candy from the big bucket to his bucket. As the night went out Charlie stood inside and waved at all the Trick or Treater's we had and pushed around a Tupperware bin that we had gotten to put all his baby clothes in.

To close out the night before Charlie went to bed we had to have a little drama. Our poor little guy got his fingers smashed in the door, I really thought he might have broken one of his little fingers. I have never heard him scream and cry so hard, after about 5 minutes of crying and finding a paci for him he was okay but wanted to stay close to mommy. After his little accident we decided that it was bed time. Aside from the accident I know Charlie has so much fun on Halloween and I really can't wait until next year!
