8 weeks, Charlie Bug

Little Charlie Ann is 8 weeks old today.  It goes so quickly!  I
 have already posted pictures of her first and second weeks... so here is the newest:

Week 3
My debut week in Springfield, Missouri. Everyone is wanting to come visit and hold me.  I definitely got passed around for 6 hours on Thanksgiving Day to every aunt, uncle, cousin and every great aunt, great uncle and second cousins, and of course passed to all the great grandparents too.  I was pretty much the hit of the party, although I don't remember a thing because I slept ALL day.  Also this week, I met my dad's side of the family, watched my grandma run a 5k, met my great-great grandma and did a lot of Christmas shopping in the mall.  I am really loved by everybody!
Grandma's house was super ready for me, I had a pack-n-play, a bassinet, a bouncer, a swing, diapers, wipes, a dresser, a boppy, a carseat, a stroller and new clothes.  A girl could get used to this kind of treatment!  But, I am a big fussypants at night and don't want to go to sleep before 11:30pm/12am.  But after I get walked and rocked and everyone knows I am here, I usually give in and go to sleep til around 3am.

Week 4
This week I started to make a few tiny, little sweet sounds if someone talks to me.  I am also going to bed closer to 10:30 and waking up at 5am for breakfast!  Mom is happy to get some extended sleep, and I am too.
This week I met a lot of Mom's friends and we went on some big shopping trips, but I dont mind cause I get to be carried in a sling!

Week 5

I am getting better and better at sleeping through the nite, and after my 5am breakfast, I go right back to sleep until second breakfast at 8am.  Everyone is happy about this!  I am also cracking tiny little grins to Mom and Grandma and Gabby and few lucky others.

Week 6
Dad came this week!  I have missed him the last month.  He doesn't let anyone else hold me, and that's okay... we have a lot of catching up to do.  I am celebrating Christmas and phew, another l-o-n-g day of being held and passed around to all of Mom's relatives.  So fun, but so exhausting!

Week 7

All I remember about this week is.. THE  CARSEAT!  We drove for three days from Missouri all the way to Southern California.  Where I slept in a drawer, a chair and a king sized bed, but I did not sleep in my carseat.

8 Weeks Today!
Hello again, SoCal.  I am so loving this warm weather here.  I get to wear dresses, take lots of walks outside and enjoy the sunshine.
