Charlie is growing up before my eyes. It all happens so fast, every time I turn around he is able to do new things. He is 5 1/2 months old already, and can currently roll from his tummy to his back. He is able to turn in a full circle in about 30 seconds or faster. He can scoot backwards--multiple feet backwards in just a couple of minutes. Charlie's favorite thing to do is stand as I hold his fingers. He squeals at an ear piercing pitch, and looooves to watch his sister in everything she does!!! Also, his hand, eye, mouth coordination is just super! As everything he sees he grabs and puts in his mouth if possible. This is something Gracie just never did...why do I even compare??
This morning Charlie was grinning ear to ear, looking at Gracie and squealing, as he often does. I said to Gracie, 'You are his best friend.' She said, 'Well I'm not his best friend.' In an instant it made my heart sad to hear it, but then wondered who her best friend was. So I asked. She replied, 'You are.' At that moment Gracie jumped into my arms and gave me a hug and kiss. Talk about making my heart melt. I became all teary and told her I loved her SOOOOO much. I have the best girl in the whole world!!!

A tender moment between father and son...
We had the BEST time the other day at the pumpkin patch. I had the kids in their country bumpkin outfits as I have done every year. Jason mentioned he was surpised I didn't have overalls for him! There is always next year!!! Gracie had a blast, too bad we can't live in the country now. We played in a hay maze finding stamps, went on a hay ride pulled by a tractor, pet and fed a few goats and chickens--throughly scrubbing our hands afterwards, rode on a pony, picked out a pumpkin and ate some yummmmmy peanuts. I love good family days where time doesn't dictate US.
