Saturday Stories

Charlotte continues to surprise me. Surprised? You shouldn't be... she is always doing something new.

This week, she mastered how to sign "daddy." Bruce and I took 1 day and just kept repeating it to her over and over again, in context of course. Sometimes, she will still point her index finger to her forehead, but with a reminder will use her thumb. Of course, I tried to catch it on video, but once the camera came out, it was difficult for her to focus.

She has also taken a liking to spinning and rolling. I know, rolling over is something she mastered several months ago... but this is different. Now, she is rolling like a gymnast, for fun. I think it is a precursor to somersaults. Maybe I need to get us back to that gymnastics studio.

The spinning is fun to watch. Especially when she does it while holding Dolly or Tigger.

Charlotte tried a new food this week - cottage cheese. And Erica, she didn't like it. But I tried it and it wasn't nearly as awful as I expected it to be. I'll continue to offer it to her and we'll see where it ends up on the list of foods she will eat.

I have been extra busy working on a new project so haven't uploaded pictures. Maybe I'll get a chance this weekend... look for another post later on.

What are your plans for this weekend?


  1. I think signing is so cool. When my son was old enough to use it; I was just too busy with school to figure it out with him (plus we had a few baby-sitters). Maybe if there's a next one, I'll try it then. But it's so cool when they master anything. My son just learned head, shoulders, knees & toes (the song) but only will put his hands on his head...that's all. Very funny.

    Anyway, sorry for the post. Cute blog.

  2. well, we just got back from our runway experience, and it was funny to say the least.

    and we love cottage cheese over here!!!!

  3. Rylee loves cottage cheese. I think it's gross personally. Rylee does some signing. She signs "more" a lot. More everything.
