11 Interesting Facts About Charlotte

  1. She knows 2 signs - "all done" and "hug." As her Daddy mentioned, she made up the sign for hug herself.
  2. She can put herself to sleep at night now, though still likes a little attention every 3-4 hours at night.
  3. Crawling is only used if something is almost in arm's reach or she is tired. Otherwise, Charlotte is on her feet running back and forth between Mommy and Daddy.
  4. The ring stacker is no challenge for her, but putting them on in size order is. Every time she plays with it, she always, without fail, waits to but the rounded, unpainted piece on top, right where it belongs.

  5. She climbs the stairs faster than her G-ma.
  6. When it comes to playing with her shape sorter, she can get all of the shapes in their holes, if we show her the right hole.
  7. Charlotte doesn't like to be fed. She especially exerts her budding independence at the table, only wanting to eat foods she can put in her mouth herself.
  8. Her favorite foods are macaroni and cheese, blueberries, and drinkable banana yogurt.
  9. There always has to be something in her hands, preferably something soft and small that won't prevent her from climbing the stairs.
  10. Buttons. Buttons. Buttons. If I had a nickle, nay a penny, for every button she pushes, I'd be a millionaire already. She knows how to turn the TV on and off, and how to turn the volume up - loud!
  11. The camera is Charlotte's favorite friend. Whatever she is doing, if a camera appears, she immediately stops doing it and begins hamming it up for the camera. She will chase you down if you try to get away too.

  12. Oh, and her sense of humor is still a little low-brow. The giggle towards the end of that last video is a result of her daddy bumping his head on the table as he walked backwards trying to get away from her!


  1. Oh what a cutie! I love that walking video! Esme always loved buttons, too. It amazes me how she knows exactly which ones to push. She does NOT like cameras, though, unless she is the one holding them. I have a hard time getting smiling shots of her, since as soon as she sees the camera, she reaches for it and all I get are fingertips in the photo.

  2. Hey! She gets to climb up the stairs and I have to walk...thats not a fair comparison. Though maybe I shouldn't go there...Charlotte may still beat me up stairs :)
