Charlie calls my sister (Katelin) “Mo”. Not sure why? It would make more sense to call my sister in law by that nickname since her name actually starts with ‘M’, but no one said toddler nicknames would make sense. (On a related note, but in no way related to these pictures: My mom had decided she would be a “Grammy” before Charlie was born, so that’s what we’ve been calling her all along, but C recently decided she was Mimi. So we’ll go with that, he runs the show, you know?)
Anyway, most of these pictures came from a night at my parents when Mo was learning to play the ukulele. (I just had to google how to spell ukulele, which looking back is pretty dumb, but when have I ever had the occasion to type the word ukulele before? And now I’ve used it three times, go figure.) Learning to play that instrument because if ever there was a useful marketable skill to have, playing the ukulele would be it. Umm, anyway, I thought it was pretty cool. Charlie really just liked the mouse he was walking around clicking away. Toddlers are funny.
You get random today. New words he’s said lately: goat, soup (stoup, he’s a little Rachel Ray fan apparently), honk, duck, most of the color words- most recently green and white, yum, yay, and several people’s names. Oh and rain, which I am counting twice because he says that for both actual rain and for raisins. 🙂
Yup, I’m posting my Christmas pictures Jan. 11, true to my inner procrastinator. I may have missed Christmas morning (working a split shift), but Brandon took enough photos that I feel like I was there! You all can too, here you go:
And some of my favorites:
Charlie loves my cousins, but they don’t all share that feeling.
(these picture makes me smile)
(I don’t know why there is a toilet wand in the background here. Some sort of joke? hopefully. The downside to not being there…)
That’s it… my favorites of the 500+ pictures B took on Christmas morning. Looks like it was all about Charlie, not that that’s surprising!
