1. My mister and his new toy
2. Sophie The Giraffe made her first appearance for Miss Charlotte!
3. My mister makes me teary eyed sometimes.
4. Valentine's!
5. Candles, candles and more candles. With all the annoying power outages we have been getting these babies are always close at hand.

5 Months!

My Charlotte turned 5 months old yesterday! So hard to believe...
Right now she weighs 13 pounds and is a wearing a big 0-3 or small 3-6 month clothing. She loves her jolly jumper and chews everything in sight. She just discovered that big ol' left ear of hers and likes to bat and flick at it. She still isn't much of a talker but will squeal with delight when you smile at her and tell her she's pretty. If you laugh at her she will echo you quickly with her own little raspy giggles and she loves to be tickled by her daddy. She is still a very easy going baby and quite content although she has given up her dreamy sleeping habits, waking every 30-45 minutes at night (much like her brothers). Such precious times, I hope so much to remember every second of it!

Life around here has been moving at a steady pace. We all seem to have something going on but are slowly figuring out how to mesh everything together so everything gets done.
I have been drinking lots of tea and thoroughly enjoying myself while doing it! I had forgotten just how wonderful tea can make you feel.
Charlotte is growing and changing so fast! She can entertain herself a bit, reach for toys and smack at them, bring things to her mouth to chew on and she loves her jolly jumper like it's no one's business!
I have developed a new love for water color paints... seriously the BEST form of paint for the boys... the mess is so much smaller, requires less prep (covering surfaces and what not) and, personally, I think it looks so much nicer! The boys love that they can still see the picture they are painting beneath the paints and they think turning their water into "mud" is the best thing on the planet.
I subscribed to a fiber club using some of my Christmas money and received my first shipment (this could have happened last week...) of a merino, silk blend... it is dreamy!
My mister bought a snowmobile so I am trying to barter for a spinning wheel... I'll keep you updated on my progress...

I had plans for this week's posts... but I forgot to type them, go figure!
So in an effort to redeem myself I have included a song for your enjoyment... it pretty much explains everything...

Musical Monday: The Stella's - Perfect

Whew! February already! I'm not quite sure what happened to January or where it went, but all's well in our house hold, if not crazy busy.
I make no apologies for the little code of silence I had going on here last month, but am hoping to break it this month. I've been busy with some projects and working on my 4 F's... I'm afraid fitness is kind of taking over my life...
We can talk about that more later though! for now, lets get back on track with a musical monday...
Love the Stella's!
