New Years

It's 3:13 am and I'm currently hour 3 into my 30 hour shift over this holiday. Luckily, none of the drunks have hurt themselves (yet) so I figured I'd update this poor neglected blog.

Aaron is currently home with the sweet girls. Charlotte has been really enjoying watching movies when she's home with mom and dad. Today, her favorite is The Little Mermaid. I must mention that her dethroned favorite was Pocahontas (Pocus-hontus, as she calls it). Charlotte is clearly a neglected child as she's started to say "That's enough kisses!" at least once a day. She's very good with her sister and is slowly learning to not snatch things from her darling sister's hands. She is extremely good at putting together her 40 some odd piece puzzle. She has also started to cheek her food. For hours. At Huser Christmas, we finally left at 630 in the evening. Charlotte began crying that she didn't like broccoli. We finally get home and she asks, "Can I spit out my broccoli?" Girlfriend had that broccoli in her mouth to FIVE HOURS through cupcakes and punch. Blegh!

Moving on... Norah Mae is officially walking. She has been taking 5-10 steps at a time with adorable deliberate stomps. She also has begun teething times 5 teeth. She has been tolerating it like a trooper and we are loving the teeny tiny toothy smiles. She had her first birthday last month and has become somewhat attached to her new moose, Mike. She also has decided that she is much too old for baby food and must eat what we are eating. She has also started to show signs of being a climber. She may have been a little later on the walking but she is crawling on everything, terrifying this helicopter parent. She falls more than I'd like and rebounds like any child with an elder sibling.

Here's hoping 2015 is half as good as 2014.

Baby Char

Norah was furiously screaming on the trip back from Bartlesville, Charlotte started cooing and trying to cheer her up.

Our EXCELLENT eater.

Hello, I'm Charlotte and I'm POTTY TRAINED! Woot!

Charlotte had a birthday!

Charlotte turned two and I have yet to post about it. She had a great quiet birthday dinner with her grandma, grandpa, Kyle, and Logan. This birthday's huge present was a cedar play set. It has taken poor Aaron several weeks to assemble with the help of Char's godfather. I think I might be more excited about the playhouse portion than Charlotte. Charlotte has already proven her braveness exceeds mine by leaps and bounds. She is always requesting to "go HIGHER" on her swing and skillfully climbs the ladder to her playhouse while counting, "one, two, three, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!" There are five steps but that's neither here nor there. Charlotte has learned her full name and is very helpful with Norah by either wiping spit up off her face, giving her a pacifier, or a myriad of other motherly activities that seem to come naturally to her. 

Norah is growing fast and "talking" a lot. She is an extremely smiley baby and has started taking a pacifier. Life has been a lot happier for everyone since the inception of the pacifier. She rolled from her back to her front yesterday.

Norah's first laugh

Unfortunately, no picture or video. I didn't even get to witness it due to being at work, but Aaron tells me she laughed at him just smiling at her.

Char has become accustomed to hollering "Norah Maaaae!"  throughout the house, And is now getting a lot better with manners. She'll say please, thank you, and welcome. Charlotte's birthday is rapidly approaching. I will take and post pictures of Charlotte's birthday present. It's a good'un.
