Visits, love & laughter

Charming’s grandparents from Minnesota came to visit when he was 2 weeks old. They had such a wonderful time visiting him. Well, maybe they enjoyed Charming’s parents too. They really wish he lived closer, and delight in letting Mama & Papa know about all the wonders of the Mid-West.

Charming was 3 weeks old when his first Halloween rolled around. For some reason he really wasn’t interested in Trick or Treating, but he did love being dressed up in his Tigger costume. Or was it mama who loved his costume? In any case he looked adorable.

As we flew into November Charming just kept getting cuter, and cuter! Impossible you say! Well just take a look at the photographic proof!

Thanksgiving came and went and we were into December and Christmas. It’s amazing how much stuff one little boy can acquire. The presents just kept coming. And not all from this Auntie either. It was a rare day that something didn’t come in the mail from one of Papa’s friends or relatives. Mama’s friends and relatives didn’t slouch either.

One of the funnest things that came is a play mat. It is multi-colored and has animal faces on it that you squeeze to make animal noises. The cow moos, the pig oinks, the duck quacks, etc. I think Papa has had more fun with it than Charming has! Charming has discovered faces. He’s so intrigued by them. Of course he loves looking at himself in the mirror, so he had to have another playmat that let him do just that!

Grandma & Auntie from Minnesota came for a visit right after Christmas. Charming loved seeing them. Not as much as he loves seeing me of course, but he loves them all the same.

Charming has started laughing. It’s the cutest thing and so unexpected. When the boy is finished eating he usually wants his binky right away, however the other day as he finished his bottle he was just looking at me and grinning. So, when he’d slurped it all down and I took the bottle out of his mouth, he started giggling at me. I giggled back and we had a giggle fest for a few minutes. Mama tried to capture it on film but as soon as the camera comes out he stops. It was just too wonderful!
