A little Halloween preview...On paper, I just wanted to make sure it fit. In reality, I just couldn't wait 3 more days. :)

Coat Cuteness!

All bundled up and ready to go out and celebrate a birthday~ Charlotte's Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw have birthdays in this fine month! *Please excuse the partial curler shot of my head...I forgot to trim this image before I uploaded...oops!
The coat is even cuter in the's gather along the empire waist~I'd love one in my size!!

Random Cuteness!(and yes, I used "Cuteness" twice ...but if you've seen Charlotte, you can't blame me.)

I can't tell in this window what order these will appear in, so in no particular order: Charlotte having fun walking around her room (well, she actually is getting back up in this pic), thrilled to have escaped with the Real real cell phone (not the "Fake" real cell~aka my old dead one), enjoying some baby food "pasta" goo (*Update: she is actually consuming yobaby yogurt...hurray!!), and getting ready to go for a shoulder-ride with Josh :)

Alivia is Awesome!

Alivia and her beautiful mom, Kindra, came over to hang out the other night :) The fun music table was a loaner from our sweet neighbor who's son didn't mind the girls using it...super nice!! Plus it was nice for us moms to have some variety in the "talking" toys category :)

Family Fun :)

My parents came up for a visit this past month :) It was a blast as always and Charlotte (as you can see) loves seeing her Nana and Poppy!!

Hello My Future Boyfriend, This Is What I Sound Like...

Super fun!! Erin U and the boyz got to meet us at Hanes Mall for a mini-reunion while they were in town. While it appears that Charlotte was consoling Finn as any good girlfriend would do, I think she was actually accidentally hitting him. Which could still bode well for the future romance... Ask Josh~hitting and caressing are the same thing in our house haha! (I'm like Joey's girlfriend on Friends...the hitter!)

Jack entertained us on the carnival-sized trampoline~great job, buddy!!!

*Charlotte's cute shirt is courtesy of EU~Thanks again, friend!
**The extremely cool photography effect of Charlotte still and Jack in motion was produced by my hard work and high skill level....or, it was an accident. Choose your own adventure/version....

Fun Family Times!

The annual Shelton reunion~super fun family and great food!! Charlotte is with her uncle and soon-to-be aunt and her Maw-Maw!

Reading with her Dad :D

Don't worry, it's not a scary story. It's a story called Rose White, Rose Red. Although now that I think about the elements of the story, it is a little weird. Right on, Charlotte.

I-I-I'mmmmm Sorrry, Soooo Sorrrrry...

Wow, it has been a whirlwind month!

Some basic next time I promise!

*Charlotte is nine months old!! (So much for that 9 months to put it on, 9 months to take it off adage) She is 28 1/2 inches long and 20 lbs! Tall and lean like her daddy :) She has two teeth (bottom center) and two on the way (top, on either side of the front teeth~which are not there..hee hee). She walks maybe 10-12 steps at a time, and crawls super fast when she's in a hurry and doesn't have time to wobble-walk to her point of interest. She is so sweet. I promise. She's the happiest little thing~happy as a little happy clam I always say! (something like this phrase is from a movie that Josh and I can't place, but we say it often when referring to Charlotte). She can now clap her hands, too (as of today, when I picked her up at Steph's)!!

*Josh is doing great in his MBA program~way to go, honey!! We're so proud of you!!

*I got a job at the Central branch of the Forsyth County Public Library! Huge praise there!

Like I said, I'll post pics next time~we have some fun ones of good times with family :D Charlotte loves all of her grand and great-grandparents!! (and so do we ;D)
