Four Months: The Land of Charley

Little Charley Bug is now four months old:

 She's so adorably cute!

I remember the thoughts that ran through my mind when I discovered that we'd be bringing another little babe into this world. "Will I be able to love him/her like I love Grace?" "Will he/she fit into our family?" I am willing to admit that I was a little petrified at the thought of Grace becoming a big sister and myself becoming a mother of TWO.

Last Week...

...I totally forgot to mention the week before that Grace had her first modeling gig. She took photos in Halloween costumes for a catalogue and will be used on the packaging in stores. They liked her so much that she's going back next week to do more costumes! We weren't allowed to take any pictures, but I'll be sure to post pictures of the catalogue as soon as it comes out. So proud of my baby girl!

...Grace and Daddy read together:

...Charley and Mommy played:

...Grace sang the intro song to The Lorax:
(I'll have to get this on's adorable!)
...Charley napped on Daddy:

...we had dinner at Poppa's, and Grace danced to Duran Duran:

...Charley finally laughed out loud:

...Aunt Jessie, Uncle Larry, and Aunt Laura came to town, so we had dinner at El Torito. After dinner, Grace had gum balls for the first time and loved them.

...the girls enjoyed their new swing set:

...we had fun during bath time. Every night when I tell Grace it's bath time, she tells me, "I yuv baff time. Chaw-yee taked a baff, too?" She loves helping us wash Charley. I'm so glad she's back to enjoying baths again:

...Grace played with Mommy's make-up brushes while we got all dressed up for breakfast on Saturday:
