#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 13 . A fun visit from Grampy and Gigi today! We went out for lunch then played at the park all afternoon. It was sunny and 75. C went down the slide about 100 times, watched Grampy jump off the swings, and snuggled up with Gigi. A great family day spent out in the sunshine! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #grandparents #slide

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 11 . We broke out the hammock swing today! I spent so many wonderful moments snuggling and playing and nursing Charlie in this swing last year. I was so excited to break it out again this year and it didn't disappoint! C was all smiles swinging and spinning and snuggling. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #swing #hammock

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 10 . Today was the first time Charlie ever spontaneously asked me to take her picture! I'd taken a photo just before dinner of a coloring page C had just finished. Then during dinner she said "Mama take a picture of 'Carlie'!" So of course I did and she cheesed it up hard for the camera. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #cheesin #happiness

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 9 . One last post-dinner snowball before it all melts outside. This girl had a blast eating snow all winter long. . At bedtime tonight, Charlie noticed that the bird in "Big Dog, Little Dog" is the same one as in "Are You My Mother?" She loves when I say, "Good observation!" . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #snow #observations

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 8 . Charlie's newest thing to do with her books is to ask, "What dis page say?" and turn it around so we can read it to her. She only does it with her books that she hasn't yet memorized (which is very few 😆) in an attempt to be able to read them herself. Also, as you can see from these photos, she never. stops. wiggling. Ever! I swear I've only ever seen her stand perfectly still for maybe 2 seconds at a time ever since she learned to walk... she's SUCH a wiggle worm! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #books #raisingreaders

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 6 . I live for nice weather and days at the park with my girl! This park is 5 minutes down the road and a nice open place for C to just run and get tons of energy out. She was all about wearing her new sunglasses today. She's learned how to put them on by herself and slide them to the top of her head when she doesn't want to wear them. We played on the park bench, ran the bases around the muddy baseball diamond, and practiced walking/ running up and down a tiny hill without face-planting. Good day! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #park #sunglasses

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 5 . It's been two days since we visited the cat shelter. We haven't really talked about it much, other than on the day we went. Tonight, Charlie was coloring while I made dinner (like she does almost every night) and turned to a page with a dog and cat. All of a sudden she says, "Fred!" and looks up at me with a big grin on her face. At first I thought she meant the dog like in her Fred and Ted book so I responded with some comment about the dog. She paused in silence for a moment then said "Kitty's name is Fred." It took me a minute then it dawned on me, the first cat we met at the shelter's name was Fred. My jaw dropped. The moment I started talking about the shelter again, Charlie started laughing. She was so happy I'd deciphered what she was talking about. I asked her what color Fred was and without hesitating she answered, "black and white!" Yup! Seriously though, her memory AMAZES me constantly. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #memory #catsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 3 . Charlie had a great time visiting the cats at the local shelter. She gave a few of them gentle pats and played with them using their toys. Hopefully we can go back in a regular basis and make more kitty friends. She talked about it all afternoon after we left, "We saw a lot of kitties!" . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #catsofinstagram #adopt

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 April 1 . We played frisbee outside with Sunny in the sunshine today. It's tough to manage both Charlie and Sunny outside because I don't fully trust Sunny around Charlie and all Charlie wants to do is sprint full-speed straight down the hill in the backyard (until she face plants - I'm terrified of her breaking a bone or knocking her teeth out). It's a challenge but, when they're both cooperating, it's fun. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #frisbee #dogsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 31 . We painted clay pots today and then planted flower seeds in the rain. Charlie didn't hesitate with the soil at all and got nice and messy. Whenever her hands get dirty she always wants me to be the one to wipe them off so I've been telling her to just wipe them on her clothes... pick your battles. We had to come inside to actually put the seeds in because it started pouring but C didn't mind. She loved using the spray bottle to mist the soil when we were done. She kept saying "We made a big mess!" and then vacuumed the floor at the end. Now to just wait until we have sprouts! I hope she has fun watching them grow. I want to get her a butterfly garden soon too so we can watch caterpillars transform! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #gardening #seedlings

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 30 . We drove to a local apple orchard to see the trees in the wintertime today. In talking with the owner, I learned that these trees are 85 years old! I took lots of photos of Charlie at this orchard last autumn while we picked apples and hope to take photos of her here this spring during the bloom as well! So dreamy! We stayed on the path since the orchard is closed right now but Charlie made a fun little game of cat and mouse where she'd sprint toward the ice and I'd have to go chase her. She also loved waving to the beautiful horse across the street! We'll have to ask its name next time we visit. . After a quick visit to the orchard, we drove up the street to Bradbury Mountain State Park but the trails were super icy so we stayed by the entrance and played on the playground for a little bit even though that was slippery too. I can't wait for warm weather and sunshine so we can visit all these fun places again soon! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #explore #littleadventurer at Hansel's Orchard

#CharlieCheeseFries2019 March 29 . Whenever something is turned off or broken and Charlie's trying to use it, she adorably states, "Not workin' weally well..." Today it was when she was trying to use her muscles to push open the garage door. I think the odds are against you on that one, babe, but keep setting those goals high! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #myreasonwhy #muscles #goals
