Charlotte's First Tea Party

Tonight Charlotte and I had a special guest for dinner, Grandma! After our yummy dinner Grandma decided she would like to have some tea, enter impromptu Tea Party! Charlotte was so cute, wanting to have her tea made up exactly like ours with lemon and sugar.

She was an interesting combination of very careful about drinking the tea (while it was still sitting on the table) and spastic by swinging her tea cup around wildly while gesturing. It was really fun to watch! Although Charlotte used her small play tea cup she did have EIGHT helpings so I think it’s safe to say she likes tea!

Princess Charlotte & The Queen Mother

Here is a cute picture of Princess Charlotte posing with the Queen Mother!!!

The Queen Mother (aka Grandma) made Charlotte a really neat cloth book for her birthday about being a princess. At the end of the book you are supposed to include a picture of your princess…Charlotte.

Today I FINALLY got around to taking the picture, thanks for being patient Mom! There were lots of good pictures of Charlotte by herself but THIS ONE, with Grandma, is my favorite!

Swimming with Ducky & Baby...Plus A New Trick

This afternoon I took Charlotte out in the backyard to swim. Most of you know she has been insisting that Ducky do everything with her, including swimming – we devised a Ziploc bathing suit to make this possible. However, today she also wanted one of her babies to come swimming too. What a funny afternoon… I spent most of my time just watching Charlotte bustling around on her own agenda. At one point she grabbed her towel and wiped their eyes then she told them to “look at sky…smile” so she could take a picture of them with her play phone… adorable!

She really didn’t swim much today, just ran herd on her baby and Ducky. My favorite thing she did was say, out of the blue, “Oh, Baby you want go down slide? Okay, I hold your hand – be safe!” Then she took the baby up the slide steps one at a time before she said “Ready? Go!”

Oh yah, I was finally able to get a good video of Charlotte doing her new trick…saying “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” she is such a sponge!!!

Cooking With Grandma

Charlotte is lucky enough to spend a lot of time with her Grandma, just makes me smile. Tonight she helped Grandma make dinner by washing potatoes with her. You can see how much fun they had. This picture really reminds me of all the times I have cooked with my Mom – she is a great teacher!
