baby at work, baby at play

I know most of the pictures on this blog are of Charlotte, but she is definitely the cutest of our family and has become such a little smiler, bringing happiness to our home and our neighborhood! She feels like a real grown up sitting in the bumbo chair.

Charlotte loves her baths.

Little swimsuit model

Family picture taken in Central Park. Believe it or not, this was the best of them!

My little swimsuit model. Lookin' good in a super cute suit Grandma sent! Next step, a trip to the actual pool.

For Charlotte's 4 month mark, we celebrated by using a gift card from the dental class to buy her a jumperoo. She loves it! Our living room has now officially been taken over by baby apparatuses. In other news, at Charlotte's 4 month check up she made the 73rd percentile for height at 25 inches. Thanks for the tall genes, Dad! She also took her shots like a champ though I heard some weird screaming from her while she slept that night.

The Virgin Mother

On our way to the park yesterday, we stumbled on this HUGE "Bodyworld" style sculpture right on Park Avenue in Midtown. It's called The Virgin Mother and most be at least 30 feet.

We resumed our trek to the park on the bus, and noticed a zebra casually crossing the street at one of the lights. You don't see that every day. Upon further inspection we noted a film crew and movie set at that spot.

Charlotte loved kicking her legs on a blanket at the park and was full of huge smiles until the camera came out of course.

We've made this our favorite spot, at the southernmost tip of the Great Lawn. It was a fabulous summer evening. I can't believe it's taken us three years to start going to Central Park! We can thank Charlotte, she begs us to leave the apartment every day so she can see all the cool stuff around her.

Central Park Stroll

Who Me?

On Saturday we went to Central Park. It was hot during the day but in the evening it was perfect for a stroll. At Belvedere Castle we had a good view of the turtle pond that has a ton of moss on it, you can see it - the light green color. A string quartet was playing music near the Great Lawn, making for a very pleasant time. Next time we'll have to bring a dinner to eat there. Charlotte was a good sport for the trip, but got fussy as the night went on since she's started to go to bed earlier these days.

4th of July Fun

We call this the "having the time of her life" smile. It's the one she uses when she's trying to win me over. It works!

Charlotte is happy to have her dad back despite his weird expression.

Showing off her 4th of July outfit and hairbow. I was so excited when we got back to find that she fits into her 3-6 month clothes now.

Our 4th of July BBQ was rained out, so we brought it inside to the lounge where all the babies congregated on the pool table. Charlotte looked on enviously at the older kids who could sit up.
