Look what happened when I blinked.

My child is trying to give me a heart attack.

Do you see that?  Do you see how she is standing up on the foam letter package?  The one that is plastic-wrapped and thus completely slippery?  SHE KNOCKED THAT OVER AND PUSHED IT ACROSS THE ROOM TO USE AS THE MOST UNSTABLE FOOTSTOOL IN THE WORLD.  Then she turned around, shrieked HI! at me, waved, and gave me kisses when I took her “footstool” away.

Remember when I brought her home from the hospital and she was seven pounds of immobile digestive processes?

Yeah, me too.

    I know!  My little monkey who just turned one can climb up on just about anything!  I have to keep a close eye on him!

    I love it!  She knows she wants to look outside, and figured out how to do it all on her own!
    I love independence! and her chubby little legs and the oranges on the tree!

    She’s hilarious. And also?  a Genius.

    Ah, yes!  That is dangerous, but also smart! 

    And that little cloth-covered bum peaking out of her dress is killing me!  Too cute!

    Do you ever take video of Charlotte? I kinda want to see her in motion after reading this, and hear her too!

    oh goodness…. now you are in trouble!! :)

    Oh boy. Our little one is just starting to pull up now and it’s tough to take our eyes off her. Why do babies have to be so top heavy?

    oh little Charlotte, you are too cute!  I love how she always wants to look out the window, I would also :)

    It’s so freaking fast. It never ceases to amaze me…

    Smart girl!! OOO I want to squeeze those cute chubby legs!!

  14. By Dawn on May 19, 2010

    Yep.  Been there.  She’ll totally be grabbing the car keys tomorrow and screaming “I’ll be home by eleven!“ the next time you turn around.  My own little devil spawn (which I swear I just diapered last week) are, as I post this, discussing the recelnt elections in the UK while browsing retirement facilities for their possibly insane mother.  Crossing my fingers that they pick a place on the beach.  With a bar.

    Oh my jeesus!

    Oh man, she is a smart little thing!  I feel your pain about 5 ba-gillion times a day with a 2.5 year old dare devil and a 1.5 year old.  My favorite to date?  When my daughter chose to stand by herself, no hands, for the first time.  In the bathtub.  And proceeded to flail her arms and clap because she was so excited.  She was about 8 months old and way too young to be thinking about anything of the sort.  She is the older one and is cr-A-zy!

    Too funny. I hate to say it but Charlotte looks less and less like a baby and more and more like a toddler! I love that she saw you and yelled Hi. Too funny.

    SO adorable. You’d better cover those outlets!

  19. By Sarah Christensen on May 21, 2010

    Greener - They are tamper resistant outlets, like what you see in children’s hospitals, so they’re safe as-is.  We keep them turned off, as well.

    These are so cute and hilarious!

    It is simply amazing how quickly they grow! When is the next one coming? ;)

    Hi,
    A week ago I got a new plastic shower curtain liner and hung it up. It gave off a strong plastic smell (I don’t know how else to describe it), but that wasn’t unexpected for a new plastic curtain. But, it is still giving off that strong plastic odor seven days later.What can I do to get rid of the plastic odor?
