This weekend we took a road trip to Tomahawk to visit some friends of mine from college. Charlotte did super in the car but didn't sleep the whole time like she used to. We get lots of motorboat noises from the back seat. On our way home, we stopped to visit Great Grandpa and Grandma LaPean and Great-Grandma Jurkowski. Charlotte was happy to see them all. They were amazed by how big she is getting.
On Saturday, since the fall weather was beautiful, we did a lot of hiking and bird hunting with our friends. Charlotte just LOVED being outside in the backpack. There was lots to see and smell. The three dogs were the most entertaining to her.
At home Charlotte is eating lots of good food. We just started giving her puffs, which is solid food (like Cheerios) that melt in her mouth. She has to pick them up with her fingers and pop 'em in. She also enjoys standing on the floor and gripping the ottoman. Those legs are getting really strong. The two teeth are in and her sleeping patterns are still not ideal. I also think she is growing and growing because she can't seem to eat enough food and MILK.
