Charlotte turned 6 months old March 4th!
She continues to be our breath of fresh air....just a sweet, beautiful joy. It amazes me how each child can bring something perfect to the family unit...the one thing that was missing but you never knew it was missing until it was here. You follow me on that? She was missing....and I never even knew it. I was okay to just have Collen. After losing Ayden, Collen had fulfilled me in ways I never expected! I had another boy....I had that mother/child connection again. I had a future to look forward to. I was okay to be a mom of boys and leave it at that. But God said, "Oh, no....y'all thought y'all had seen My work in your boys. You just wait until you meet this baby girl I have for you." She continues to be our beautiful, precious, most wonderful surprise.
And look what I finally got around to doing.....6 months after she was born.
I had realized that I hadn't done a birth announcement for Miss Charlotte. Mommy of the year, I tell ya. Since 6 months had passed I wondered if it was even in good taste to do one, but I did one for Ayden and for Collen, so it just would not be fair to our little Miss if we didn't do one. So, I put one together and just love it. Now, I just have to get them in the mail. Hopefully that won't take another 6 months to complete.
At her 6 month check up:
Charlotte weighed 15 lbs 8 oz (50%) and is 26.75 inches long (90%). So, she is tall and skinny! I hope she stays that way because she sure does not get that from me. Sounds like a Grandpa Tyson or a Whitley trait to me. She checked out healthy and happy and charmed the doctor through the entire visit. He tested her sitting up skills and standing; he was impressed with both. She's developing normally. Normal is good. I like normal.
