Big News in LaLa Land

Charlotte ate an entire peach this morning!

Ok, that's not really the big news (though she did eat a whole peach, which is crazy because she never eats anything, so it did make me really happy... but anyway....)

Charlotte is walking!!!

Yes, that's right... first Katie and the baby jail escape and now this. I'm in big trouble. A friend the other day said I will get really skinny chasing them around, so that is something... but knowing me I will find a way to chase them and eat a cookie at the same time.

In all seriousness, I am so PROUD of my little LaLa. Late last week she started standing on her own for a long time, not just the few seconds that she and Katie had both been standing without holding on to anything. So we knew, she was really close. Yesterday we were over a friend's house for a BBQ, and Charlotte took three steps right up to our friend to get something out of her hand. Then today, she just kept doing it... I'd see her out of the corner of my eye, taking little hesitant steps around baby jail...

The problem is, she won't walk to me. She gets too excited and tends to just throw herself into my arms (which is terribly cute) so I've been having trouble getting video of it. This is the best I could do - she takes a few little steps, you get the idea.



The funniest part of the whole thing honestly is Katie kissing her. The girls ONLY kiss each other. If I try and get them to kiss me or Daddy or anyone else, they act like they have no idea what I'm talking about. But if I say KISS LALA! or KISS KATIE! they maul each other. It's very sweet.

So Charlotte is walking, and Katie is a great kisser. I couldn't be prouder. :)

Way to go LaLa! And what a sweet sister Katie is! They are getting cuter & cuter aren't they? If you lose too much weight chasing the girls around, send them to Dallas for a few months. I could use some baby practice and quick weight loss. tia! ;)

Keep up the great work Mommy & Daddy!

Good job girls - a walker and a kisser - you couldn't ask for much more. They are getting so big and cuter by the minute.

Yeah LaLa! How exciting!! And the kissing is absolutely precious. I can't wait til my girlies figure out how to give each other kisses.

And I really hope your friend was right about losing weight while chasing babies around, I could use all the help I can get!

How cute is it that Katie kisses her? My daughter will be 1 Sunday and I'm pretty sure we are a good month, if not two away.

Yay Charlotte!

Alright Charlotte!! Way to go! And I LOVE the kissing. :)

Jody said...

OMG that video actually made me cry. They are growing up so fast, which means MY girls are growing up fast, too. I'm not ready for walking abd babies kissing each other, even if it is the world's cutest video!

Katie M said...

The kissing is too cute!! Go Charlotte!

mommy2twinkies-Deb said...

Wow that's great. My twins didn't start walking until 15 months and 18 months. I was getting a bit worried. It actually makes it easier, trust me.

Awww, they are so cute! My niece used to refuse to give kissies, she delegated that task to her teddy bears. I got a lot of teddy kisses during THAT phase, LOL! Oh and it is true, they learn to walk so they can get into things that are higher up with both hands ;).
