Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend Charlotte was blessed. Here she is posing in her beautiful dress and shoes for the occasion.

Earlier in the week, we took a subway ride to the park to meet up with the other babies. I love her expression.

Decked out in a bonnet a tad too large, on the way to Central Park.

Hanging out with Uncle Phil and Aunt Jennie.

In Central Park Charlotte posed while an artist drew her portrait. She loved all the attention she got from people walking by. We couldn't believe she sat there patiently for a half hour, usually she gets antsy when her stroller is not moving.

Who does she look like?

No one can really decide who Charlotte looks like - Helaman or me. So here are our baby pictures, tell us what you think! For pics of Charlotte, feel free to browse the last 100 or so posts.

Monday Madness

Charlotte loves her new friends that hang above her chair. When pulled, the cow plays a tune, but never gets the credit. She patiently listens to the song, then favors the blue sheep with a huge grin every time.

Last night we celebrated the end of "24" with a rooftop BBQ in the wonderful weather.

After a couple of tumultuous nights, last night I put Charlotte to bed at 11pm. I automatically woke up at 3am, but she wasn't up or even stirring. I kept thinking she would get up soon, so I couldn't sleep for another hour! It turns out she decided to sleep in until 8am!!! I don't expect it to become a regular habit quite yet, but it was fun though I kept waking every hour wondering what she was up to. Go figure.

My First Mother's Day

My mom

Beautiful roses from Helaman who made me french toast for breakfast (my favorite)

My little bug who honored her mom by staying up through church and taking a nap afterward as is the Erickson custom

More smiles!

There she is grinning for the camera this morning, probably due to the fact that she slept for a 5 hour stretch last night! Which, by some accounts, is "sleeping through the night". Debatable in my opinion, but it definitely works for now.

Out and About

On the go with Dad. Charlotte falls instantly asleep at the prospect of going to church after spitting up on Helaman's tie. Good for a peaceful meeting block, but not so good for Mom and Dad's nap afterwards...

She's working up the courage to get out there and make some new friends at the park. Maybe next time.

After a long day.

Just the Three of Us

Our first family picture! Would have been nice if she were awake...
This picture was actually taken a couple weeks ago, which is why she is a bit smaller than in the last post. She's not shrinking!
