all for clean knees

Charlotte's started doing this weird elephant crawl around the apartment. Her little knees might be getting tired of the hard floors...! In any event, it is hilarious.

She's also working hard on getting some teeth. We can see a tip of one and it is quite exciting, as all of her contemporaries have several teeth at this point.

Helaman is scrambling around now to finish everything he needs to do to graduate and get licensed. They don't give those licenses away for free. Every day brings more fun surprise fees.

I spend a chunk of each day lately online looking at places to live in Dallas and waiting for pre-approvals to arrive. I can't believe we're going to live in a regular city soon. We're flying out in April to search for homes, which will also be a fun vacation for us with my parents watching Charlotte in Houston and reliving her glory days of having only one child. Soo.... we are also working hard on weaning Charlotte from breastfeeding which is harder than I thought. I've introduced whole milk a couple times and she's not as crazy about it as I imagined. It's so delicious! Like drinking ice cream!

That is so funny! I especially love the splits. And seriously. How can anyone not like whole milk?! Maybe do a mix for a while. Breastmilk is super sweet, so perhaps the less sweet taste is what she objects to?

My little sister didn't get her first tooth until she was 18 months old! For a while my parents were worried that there were no teeth in there.

Good luck with weaning and finding a house. There are some really terrible houses out there. I visited quite a few of them.

That is a really cute video. Charlotte is getting really big.
I am excited to hear about your new lifestyle in Dallas!

I am still so sad that you are leaving. Thank goodness for blogs so that we will keep in touch.

I have a tip with the milk thing. Warm it up a bit. My kids hated cold milk, but 10 seconds in the microwave seemed to do the trick. Since breastmilk is warm, the coldness of the whole milk may be the turnoff.

That is so funny. She didn't do that yesterday at lunch bunch. Anyways, I'm glad I found your blog. Feel free to visit ours. It's
