Happy 1/2 Bday CGR!

Charlie had her 18m check-up on Wed and in preparation for it, I did what I always do... Make a list of annoying questions  and all of her recent milestones.  As I was sitting at work making a list of all the words she says, as I knew he would ask me the exact #, I couldn't help but laugh at the ridiculousness and randomness of them... It really is a reflection of me and the words that I say most often.. Apparently I say: ick, ew, yuck, oh no!, a lot!! Yes, my daughter loves to point to a piece of hair or random dirt pile that the dogs drug in while saying any of these words. And woe to the person who does not clean it up immediately. I find it comical, but it gets kinda embarrassing when we are out somewhere or at someone's house... You are officially warned, Charlie demands her surroundings be immaculate. She says a total of 27 words, which Dr. Chi said is at a 2 year old level.. I was not kidding when I said she has the gift of gab. Dr. Chi said she 'passed all of my tests' so I guess that means she is allowed to get older...He also said that based on her current stats, at 20 years old, she is projected to be 110 lbs and 5'9'' to which he said 'Sorry mama',—still not sure what that was supposed to me?!?!?! I found myself wondering, "did I just get 'dissed by my daughter's ped??" My next thought was "Is it terrible that I am going to hate my 20 year old daughter for having the body of a supermodel??" ha! O yea and she needs to be off the bottle by 21 months and potty trained by our next visit.. in 6 months... Those are awfully lofty goals Dr. Chi... Lofty. Goals.

Here is a recent pic of Charlie, me and my friend Cara at our friend's grand opening. She has the BEST spice shop. They literally have EVERYTHING.. Dan and I are obsessed... Check it out Savory Spice
