Weight and Height
Charlotte is such a big girl now. She weighs 18,5 pounds! I have no idea how tall she is though. They weren't able to measure her during the last check-up. She threw a tantrum and would not cooperate. She definitely has a mind of her own!
Charlotte is still wearing her 9 to 12 month clothing and still wears a size 3 - 4 nappies. She already has plenty of clothes to get through the winter and spring so we started shopping for next summer and winter already. I'm begging the hubby to take us to the designer outlet soon for some serious retail therapy! I love those little designer clothes, but I don't like paying the full price for them since they grow out of them so fast at this age. So some outlet shopping would be just perfect for us! Hopefully I'll be able to do a haul soon!
Charlotte can eat just about anything. We don't have to chop things up anymore, she can handle big chunks just fine. Drinking is also getting a bit better. She can now drink on her own from a small cup, which definitely helps her fluid intake!
Charlotte started walking! It started about a week before her first birthday, and she looks so big and grown up doing it! She's not a pro yet, but she's starting to become really good at balancing and making turns and stuff. I know walking before the first birthday may sound fast, but to us it took ages! Charlotte started standing and getting mobile so fast, that we were absolutely sure that she'd already be walking at around her 11th month, so having to wait for almost en entire month really seemed forever! She also learned alot of new words and she can point out several objects and name them. She also loves to clap her hands and climb the couch and she's really into mimicking what we do. She holds her phone to her ear and pretends to talk on the phone. So cute!
I'll probably still post some pictures of what her birthday party would have looked like. It all looked so beautiful and I would hate to see it all go to waste. Who knows, you might get some inspiration out of it! Now people told me that the first birthday is the most memorable one, and that I wouldn't forget this day very soon. Well, I can definitely say they were right! This was a birthday we're going to remember for the rest of our lives!
First of all, happy new year everyone! I can't believe it's January already! Things have been so crazy during the holidays that I didn't even notice that I haven't blogged for two whole weeks! The holidays have been wonderful here, and I hope everyone has made some wonderful lasting memories over the last couple of weeks.
Not only was it the time to share with the people we care about, It's also the season of retail therapy. I'm not a crazy shopaholic, I only purchase items that I have given alot of thought and I know that we'll get a great use out of. But December is the month I let loose a little. I wanted to share some of our favorites gifts and gets. If you have any birthdays or parties coming up soon, there might be some useful ideas in this blogpost!
And last but not least, I got another car! Yay! But you probably already figured that one out from the picture on the top of this blogpost. Now this wasn't a Christmas gift, but I did buy it in the month December, so I thought I'd throw this one in anyway. I love it! It's a tiny beige Nissan Micra. I think it's a really cute car and since I'm always struggling with parking, the smaller the car the better!
