1 + 1 = 11

On the 29th of Nov. Charly turned 11 months old... okay there is said it. This means that she will be a year old next month and I can't even believe it... Here is a little bit about Charlotte at 11 months...

She had 6 teeth! The top 3 she cut all at once and it was horrible but i am so glad it is over and she looks so adorable with them!

Playing with the Tupperware is her favorite past time

She copies everything that we do! (This is right after I started the dishwasher)


She loves animals! (I know this is gross but i just couldn't hep it)

She loves her daddy and thinks her uncle Mitch is the greatest!


But of course her mommy is still #1


Charlotte is such a blessing to our lives and continues to amaze us everyday! I just love being her mom and count my lucky stars everyday for such a healthy and happy little girl.

Splinter Fracture?

So, Charly's new favorite past time is so throw toys into the toilet. Since I think this is very unsanitary I have been keeping all the bathroom doors shut both at the office and home. Well I was in a hurry trying to leave the office the other day and forgot to shut the bathroom door after Charly woke up from her nap and while I was getting her things together she crawled in the bathroom and then............ It was the most horrible cry I have ever heard, well it was more screaming at first. It was so sad. She shut the toilet lid on her hand. Her pinkie finger on her left hand swelled up and bruised almost instantly. So after doing a little crying myself with her I took her over to the IHC in Hurricane and sure enough we had a splinter fracture. There is not much they can do because she is so little. I still feel so horrible but it is getting much better since last Thursday when she did it. So from now on I am constantly checking to make sure the bathroom door is shut. Hopefully she wont learn to open it when she starts walking...

Bath Time!

So I decided to kill two birds with one stone as some might say! Both Porsha and Charly needed a bath so why not give them one together? Why have I not thought of this before? Charly loved it! Porsha on the other hand.... well she doesn't really ever "enjoy" baths but I totally got a kick out of it! I just love these two, Porsha is constant entertainment for Charly weather she wants to be or not. I am so glad that they get to grow up together. Some of my fondest childhood memories are with my first dog, Shadow.

New Toy!

My mom went out and got Charly a new toy for her to play with while we are working in the office. Charly absolutely loves it! It is so cute, it looks like a lion and when you push it around or push on its nose it makes sounds and plays music. She has caught on so fast, I can not even believe how smart she is! Thanks mom for being such a great grandma! I put up a video below, she totally had it down after only like 10 minutes!

It also turns into a little car she can ride.

The Clevelands 1st Halloween!

Even though Charly was not old enough to really "trick or treat" we still took her and Porsha around the neighborhood. Charly was a lil lamb and Porsha was a devil. All of our neighbors really enjoyed seeing her and Porsha all dressed up. We have the best neighbors! Darrel and Carrol made her a goodies bag with a book, candy, a stuffed animal, and snacks. It was really sweet of them. She some how managed to get a sucker and eat the paper off. She had way too much fun until i realized that she was really sucking on it. Don't worry, I brushed her teeth twice that night :)

New Car...Finally!


So i have been driving my Infiniti G20 since high school. It is a 99' and has 151,000 miles on it. It has been a great car but finally last week the transmission went out completely! I have been driving it for like 2 months with no reverse! The AC also started not working as well which was not okay because of Charly and the fact that it has been over 100 degrees everyday for the last two weeks! So finally Zach decided that i could get a new car! I got a 2009 Nissan Altima and I absolutely love it! I feel so much better about driving with Charly in the car. Thanks to my wonderful soon to be husband Zachary :) Here are a couple pictures, it wont have tint till Friday.
