11 months old

Today Charlize is 11 months old. I hear moms say all the time it goes by fast, but now I can see that time really does fly. She is such a fun baby, loads of attitude and personality. It is so bitter sweet when it comes to her growing up. I love cuddling and holding her, but then again I like her doing her own thing. Kids are just the most worth while thing I have ever done. Granted I complain a lot about no sleep, stretch marks, and weight that seems to cling on for dear life! That is all mortal drama that holds no meaning in the eternal perspecitve. She was way worth complaints!

These are just a few pictures from her 10 month folder. Jes was getting agitated that I was slacking on pictures, so eat these up. I would post more but the blogger thingy wasn't having it!

I love this picture because Ben does the most amazing job putting her to bed. I feel so inadequate as a mother:D

I love this time of year. Unfortunately, I will not be spending my summer in Wyoming. Wyoming summers are the best, last two months, but it will have to do. They don't get too hot and there is a nice crisp in the morning air. OH HOW I LOVE THEM! I am really going to miss Pinedale this summer. I rode my dirt bike everyday last year. We went hiking and were outdoors all the time. This is one of our hikes last year (more of a walk) around the Green River Lakes. What a beautiful area. I hope we get to go back soon!
We are going to West Yellowstone this weekend with some of Ben's family. I am excited because I have never been to Yellowstone. Yup, native Wyomingite never seen what Wyoming is known for...But alas, almost 23 (I am young yet) and taking my first trip up there. I can't wait!

As for Ben and I, we really do not have much going on. Ben is done with the semester, but still has some correspondence hud to take care off unfortunately. Oh school, what an endevour! But, Ben did manage to pull an A out of OCHEM II. We have no idea how he did it, it was a miracle. Especially considering he needs a stellar G.P.A. for his program he is trying for.

As for our Charly. She is quite the grouch these days thanks to teeth. None yet...but they are really making her a certified GREMLIN! She is crawling up our stairs, but not walking. I think she just likes to be carried everywhere. We like it though, they grow up fast! She did fall out of her crib the other day. She was TICKED because it was nap time...blah, blah, blah. If you have kids, you know that tune! It is amazing how she makes my day with her cute smiles and laughs. I love having her in my life!
