What's New in Charles Town

I'm in awe of my cleverness with the title of this post.

Carrying on...

I'm really bad at writing down what's new with Charlie. So maybe every once in awhile I'll do a "what's new" post so I can have all the cool stuff he does on record. I know it's not really all that interesting to a lot of people, but since this blog has kind of turned into his baby book, why not?

Lately, Charlie has become very grabby. He likes to get his hands on pretty much anything, which means he is constantly pulling my hair or reaching for my drink. He also loves to stretch out as far as possible when I'm feeding him, which means that sometimes he's almost upside down. It's hilarious.

And speaking of grabbing, this week he reached out and grabbed two of the cats (Mao and Woogas) for the first time. I don't need to tell you how thrilled they were about that.

This morning he discovered his hair. He has taken to rubbing his ear at times (no, he does not have an ear infection), and this morning his hand wandered up to the top of his head. I loved watching him explore his own head.

Another relatively new thing he does is look behind him sometimes when he's being held facing out. He does this a lot in the bathtub when I'm messing with the back of his head. He looks backward at me, leans back into me, and puts his hand on my face. Yes, that is the sound of my heart melting.

And now for some photos. These photos were taken a couple of months ago (right after Charlie turned three months old), but I didn't get the disc until today, so here are a few favorites. I will cherish these photos forever.

Hope you're enjoying your weekends, all. As for me, today Roy and I dropped a decent amount of cash on some much-needed new clothes. Maybe tomorrow I'll share some of my purchases.
