#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 349: Mama's belt) . Charlie likes labeling all of our clothing, especially our belts, while she narrates us getting dressed. Today she wanted to wear my belt so I put it on her and we danced around the house to Baby Shark (like we do every day). She's such a goober. Her favorite verse of that song is "run away do do do do do do," to which she starts running & doing "happy feet" which is basically her running but with high knees. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #babyshark

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 341: Crawling into bed) . Today was one of those "oops" days where bedtime rolled around and I realized I'd forgotten to take any photos. I snapped a quick one with my phone as I was crawling into bed next to this nugget. I love when she wakes up just enough to say "mama" and then fall right back asleep. Also, she loves her "unicon peeyays" 😘 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #cosleeping

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 340: Entertainment) . Give a kid a cardboard box and they'll be fully entertained, right? Now just substitute the box for diaper genie refills. Charlie wore these as bracelets for a good half hour. Then she took her sock off and we put it on "Muncher" (my hand) as his hat. He wore the refills as necklaces and munched on Charlie's cheeks. My days are spent making up silly games and doing anything and everything ridiculous to get her to laugh - wouldn't have it any other way! ❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #games

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 338: Winter sunsets) . Today we squeezed in a walk down our road with Sunny at 3:45 before it got dark (at 4:15 🙄) and the sunset was beautiful. All the snow and ice has melted off the road, for now, and it was nice to get outside even though it was 26 degrees out. . I had an awesome afternoon with C just playing and being silly. She is SO fun these days and literally has full conversations. I'm not sure if it's just because we talk to her normally all day long (we nixed the baby talk a longgg time ago) but she legitimately speaks in full sentences. Her favorites are: Lacey get down off counter Peed on potty big girl Mama go get it Up with Daddy Mimis on couch/yogi Throw ball for Sunny One more veggie (stick) please Mama help please Sing happy birthday *insert someone's name* Read book *whatever the title may be* - she literally knows them all etc. etc. etc. You can see her little brain working to formulate her thoughts and she really pauses to think about what she wants to say first, then will blurt out these whole phrases that are perfectly clear. I LOVE being able to really talk with her! <3 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #wintersunset

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 335: Indecisive) . Lately, Charlie plays this game where she constantly and repeatedly changes her mind. In these photos she requested to have her slippers on then instantly laid down and wanted them off again. She'll also say "Mama, kiss..." and then, when I pucker my lips toward her, exclaim "all done!" and laugh. It's become quite the back and forth. Sometimes it's a little much but, for the most part, it's pretty cute and silly. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #patterns

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 333: Reading with Desmond) . We had friends visit today that we hadn't seen in over a year! Farrr too long (life just got busy) but it was great to see them again! Charlie and Desmond ran around together for a good 3 hours and tuckered each other right out! They were so cute in this moment of quietly reading together on the couch before they took off running again 😄 (Desmond 3.5 and Charlie 17 months) . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #friends

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 332: Canoe) . Today we deemed this laundry basket the "canoe" and pushed Charlie around the living room in it. She had Santa join her for rides, played peek-a-boo, and giggled while Puppy stuck his nose in all the holes to sniff her. We went to the park today for a short while too just to get out of the house... I hate that it's only the start of winter and we can't play outdoors all day anymore but at least it pushes us to be creative and make up new games inside. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #canoe

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 331: Hair in eyes) . That curl is always in her eyes, especially after it flattens/straightens out during naptime. It doesn't really seem to bother her that much but it drives me crazy! I feel like it should irritate her or something, and it does sometimes but not nearly as often as you'd think. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #toddlerlife

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 330: Chasing Lacey) . Charlie's newly obsessed with chasing the cat around with the corn popper. She cracks up when Lacey runs away from her, it's pretty adorable. This is her reaction when the cat has finally had enough and runs upstairs. "Umm, this is unacceptable, Mom. I'm gonna need you to go get her and bring her back down STAT." Also, swipe to see her reaction when I said I wouldn't chase Lacey and that she had to do it herself... lol toddlers... . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #catsofinstagram

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 329: Snowy woods) . Today we walked into our woods for a bit just for a chance of scenery. Charlie loves eating snow so the snowball I handed her to munch on was the highlight. She can get those mittens off so fast by flapping her arms, it's crazy. At least it was almost 40 degrees this afternoon. I pulled her around the entire perimeter of our yard twice (which is a giant hill in fresh snow with a 30lb toddler... tiring!) then I told her it was her turn to pull me. If only... . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #beanoutsider #mainewinter

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 327: Asking to vacuum) . Charlie was using her corn popper toy today and stopped suddenly to ask to vacuum. I think that's what she thinks she's doing when she uses that toy, especially when she pushes it quickly and violently because that's kind of how I vacuum. 🤣 Anyway, once we got the vacuum out, she was once again in line with it. She loves playing with the hose attachments while I do the carpet. She used to be nervous of it and want to be held the entire time it was on but now she enjoys it and even gave it kisses and hugs today. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #hoover #vacuum @hoover

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 322: Kitty, Monkey, & Puppy) . Charlie's obsessed with these 3 little stuffies that her Grampa, my dad, has given her at different times over the past few months. She loves all of them but Kitty is a strong favorite. She plays with her constantly, brings her in the car, shows her to Lacey all the time, and gives her hugs and kisses all day every day. I think she likes that Kitty looks like Lacey because she's super infatuated with Lace. She just got Monkey today though so we'll see how she ranks in the coming weeks. 😉 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #stuffies

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 321: Watching Daddy snowblow) . Today was my second snow day from work already this year. Ugh. But thankfully I got to spend it with both of my peeps. Charlie loved watching Mike snowblow today. Every time he'd turn around, she'd grin and say "Daddy comin'!" She also ate her weight in snow. Whenever snow is mentioned at all she immediately responds, "eat the snow!" I guess we're going to have to make sure she sticks to eating the white snow only... . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #snowday

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 320: Brushing her own teeth & spitting in the sink) . Charlie is finally on board with holding her own toothbrush, even though she doesn't move it around very much. She loves to mimic me spring out the toothpaste in the sink but here's is more like the "F" sound.

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 318: First snowman) . Charlie's first real snowman! We (well, I) made a snowman from which she just wanted to bite off chunks of snow to eat or lick, until she saw the carrot nose. Then she just wanted to repeatedly pull that out and play with it like her toy carrots. At least the snowman got a hug and kiss. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #snowman #beanoutsider #llbean #maine

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 316: First icicle of the season) . It's going to snow tomorrow. I'm so not ready! 😭😭😭 Charlotte had a very very firm grip on this icicle as I tried to take it away... but she started flailing it around and almost poking her eye out so no more icicles for now unless Mama is holding them. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #ice

How are babies so flexible?! Charlie loves yelling "Dow duh dog!" (downward dog), assuming this pose, then insisting "Mama, dowduhdog!" I can assure you mine is not nearly as graceful but she loves running under the bridge of my legs so I keep practicing.

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 315: Bubble soup and the bank) . Today we caught bubbles in Tupperware and, since Charlie will say "Tupperware" but mainly calls containers "soup" because we feed her dolls from them, we made "bubble soup" in the kitchen. We also had to make a trip to the bank and she was incredibly social with everyone there. Any time someone would enter the door, she'd wave and loudly say "Hellllllo!" She ran around holding my debit card, saying "dow dah doh" as she did her downward dog yoga pose, and labeling herself as a "big girl" while sitting in the adult-sized chair. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #365project #toddler #bubbles #tdbank

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 314: Towel on the poop hammock) . Every night after dinner, I ask Charlie what time it is and she replies, "tubby time" before she gets down from her high chair. I always have her towel for bath time ready on the kitchen island for her to grab and run into the bathroom to put on the poop hammock (this little hammock bassinet thing). These silly rituals have become so special to me, as weird as they may sometimes seem. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #rituals

Yesterday (11.12.18) was the first day this girl ever pooped on the potty!!! 😁 Look at that grin of pride! She'd had a night full of tossing and turning which usually means her belly is upset or she's gassy. Once we woke up and got up for the day, we tried the potty like we do first thing every morning and sure enough, number 2! Oh the random things that bring you pride as a parent... 🤣 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #pottytraining

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 313: Coloring circles) . Today we colored since it was, sadly, far too cold to venture outside. Charlie's getting good at drawing circles; she practices daily on the magnadoodle. She can identify a few shapes super well, I'd say at least 95% of the time: circle, square, triangle, and star. We're still working on oval, heart, and rectangle. She loves to color and name all the different colors of the crayons. She can recognize her written name and says "thar-lot" with the cutest little voice! Now to just not lick the crayons... . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #crayola

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 311: Rainy Saturday) . It rained all day today so we snuggled, watched birds out the window, and gave Lacey about a hundred kisses. Lately Charlie's favorite game is to say "Mama, kiss!" Then wait til I come over to kiss her and say "All done!" with a giant grin on her face. I try to respect whenever she doesn't want to be kissed or hugged so this is a fun new game for her to assert her bossy side. 😂 . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #rainyday

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 310: Mama's socks) . Charlie is all about seeing her "toe-toes" or "piggies" and the "this little piggy went to market" rhyme. She calls our "market" and can recite the last word of each line. Hearing her say "roast beef" is adorable. Anyway, she wanted to put my socks on today so I helped her put them on and she loved prancing around the livingroom. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #socks

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 309: Gonna get you) . Charlie's current favorite game is "Gonna get you" where she runs top speed across the room from the deck door to the livingroom and belly flops onto the yogi while we chase her. She totally gets that adrenaline feeling you get when someone is chasing you because she starts holding her breath as she's running and collapses into fits of scream-laughing when she crashes into the yogi and I catch and tickle her. She instantly says "Again! Get youuuu!" and runs back to the doormat on the other side of the room to start again. . This girl has become such an affectionate toddler. She's always giving giant squeezy bear hugs, trying to feed us with her play foods, rocking and burping her dolls, and kissing everything in sight, including the cat. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #chase

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 308: Apple chomping) . Now that Charlie has 4 molars, I let her chomp on a whole apple tonight at dinner. She thoroughly enjoyed it and would get all tense and determined when talking a bite. Then she'd say "mama bite" while she held it out to me, and refused to bite it herself again until I took a bite as well. Needless to say, we took turns biting the sticky apple covered in toddler spit (until I grabbed my own apple). It's amazing how that would make me nauseated with any other person or child but it really is different when it's your own kid. Must be something about growing them in your own body and birthing them that makes you not care one bit about the gross stuff. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #apple

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 307: Breastmilk ring) . After 4 months, this was finally delivered in the mail yesterday! Worth the wait! 😍 The center stone of this ring is my breastmilk! The milk that has helped my daughter to grow and thrive for the past 16 months. The milk that has given us an incredible bond that I never knew I'd cherish so much. I've said it many times before, and I'll continue to say it repeatedly, that nursing is such a special connection to create with a child. 95% of the time when I walk in the door, Charlie will immediately run over to me with a giant grin on her face, yelling with excitement and asking to nurse. She relaxes right into my arms with a perfect fit, lays perfectly still, and for those moments, nothing else in this world matters. I have become such a huge advocate for breastfeeding and will always uplift any and all moms who may need a little extra support, especially ones who face criticism and dirty looks or comments for any number of reasons: nursing uncovered in public, "extended" breastfeeding, etc. The only people who have a say in a breastfeeding relationship are a mother and her baby. It is an unbeatable, insanely beautiful experience and, though C and I are nowhere near done, I'm so thankful that I have this ring to always remember this journey. ❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #nursewithoutfear #bumpieswhobreastfeed #dropthecover #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeeding #nursing

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 305: Close to home) . Today was super cold so I didn't want to go too far from home but we had to get outside after all the rain we've had lately. Our lawn is still wet and has a slope to it so Charlie still falls a lot while playing outside. I knew there was a community football field 5 minutes from our house so we decided to check it out for somewhere open to play with level ground. I was pleasantly surprised at what a hugeee open space it was and there's a big playground right on the same site! She collected leaves and tried to push them on the swings. She also loved trying to walk on the painted yard lines of the football field, yelling "lineeee!" Awesome discovery for future times when we just need to get out of the house! It's literally right down the road. Plus there were other kids there that Charlie ran around with for a bit. . I put knit mittens on her while we were there which she definitely seemed to like more than the puffy heavy duty winter ones I've been putting on her. Her thumbs actually fit in the thumb holes in the knit pair and she can move her hands much more easily. Any time I put mittens on her, she instantly says "know" so I'll sing "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!" and she claps. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #autumn

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 302: Kisses and climbing) . My favorite thing ever is that Charlie will RUN over to me yelling "Mama kiss!" with big puckered monkey lips (she got those from her daddy). Then right after we kiss she'll just say "more kiss" again and again. (In this photo she really just wanted the camera remote that I was holding though. 😆) . She also loves her bike now but mainly wants to push me around on it or give her stuffies rides before she "parks it in the hearing lot" (she shoe mat by the door) - she'll pick the whole bike up in the air and walk it over rather than pushing it. So cute. . She's also started climbing up the yogi to look out the window and wave to the birdies. She says "climb yogi WINNOWWW" then "boudees" for birdies while she waves. Mike just said this morning how some of the words she says sound like she has an accent. It totally sounds like she's from Boston or maybe New York sometimes. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #kiss

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 299: Little Bo Peep) . Last year, Charlie was a sheep for Halloween. This year she upgraded to Little Bo Peep. 😍 She's currently obsessed with her stuffy "Lamby" and llamas so when I found this bonnet I had to snag it. Also, I made that staff out of paper towel rolls, bubble wrap, tin foil, and wrapping paper. Pretty proud of it lol. C had fun running around outside since it rained all day. Anyway, she's just the cutest EVER. . Speaking of cute, Charlie learned how to say "cute" today and now repeatedly calls Lamby cute. He is by far her favorite stuffy. She runs around the house yelling his name, "feeding" him, dancing with him, and giving group hugs. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #allasbonnets #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #halloween

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 297: WPS fall festival) . Today we went to the fall festival at the school where I work. It was pouring rain outside so they moved it indoors. Charlie had a good time but was a little overwhelmed at first and just wanted to be held. (She's just started developing some healthy stranger danger!) One she warmed up to the environment, she had a good time playing with leaves, coloring, exploring the school and, best of all, playing with balls in the gym. The photo of her holding the red ball is actually her yelling "blueeee" because she spotted a blue one. Once she got that blue ball it was like all the other ones didn't exist, blue has always been her favorite. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #fall

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 295: Vacuum) . My house pretty much needs to be vacuumed daily since I have a toddler and two long-haired pets that refuse to be brushed. Charlie wants to be held and observe from a distance while the vacuum is running but once it's off she wants to touch everything and play with all of the attachments. I try to let her just play with it on her own terms so she gets used to it. She's not scared of it, just not a fan of it moving in her direction if it's on. . Also, she looks so grown up in that first photo... 😭❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #vacuum

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 292: Front door) . After playing outside today, we were about to go back in the house to warm up and I had to stop at the door because Charlie just looked so grown up! Cliche to say but I have no idea when my baby got so big! She has full on conversations with us and I've never met a 15 month old that's as motivated to speak as she is. She narrates her entire day, as well as ours. I can't even imagine what she'll be saying in the next few months! Love my little talker. ❤ . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #growingup

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 291: First leaf pile) . Charlie's first ever leaf pile experience was a success! It was cold and wicked windy today but at one point, while playing inside, Charlie went to the window and said "outtt" so we got bundled up and went outside to play in the leaves. She mostly liked just sitting in them or "jumping" into them (aka squatting to jump then being hoisted into the air by me before being plopped into the pile.) After we were done, we went inside and she spent the next 10 minutes ripping apart leaves that she found stuck to her clothing. She likes to say "yuck" and hand me the pieces to throw in the trash. She always tries to keep the stem at the end until I tell her that that piece is yucky too and we still need to throw it away. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #galleryoflightfeature #myformerbump #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #ltbd_autumn #JIP_fall #raw_cuteness_fall #tgol_autumn #mmm_fallcolors #moc_091 #t_c_c_leaves #cc_fallvibes2 #my_magical_moments #wildandbravelittles #mom_hub #cameramama #dearphotographer #childrenseemagic #childhoodunplugged #runwildmychild #pixel_kids #jj_its_kids

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 290: Balance bike) . I brought Charlie's balance bike back out today. I had put it the closet around her birthday because she was very unstable on it at the time and falling pretty hard. After waiting a few months, she's much more stable on it and can actually use it pretty well with a little help. She had fun playing with it outside on the lawn since it was fairly warm today. Then she tried to hand Lacey leaves a bunch of times haha... Lacey couldn't have cared less, although she did sniff a few then walk off. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #galleryoflightfeature #myformerbump #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #ltbd_autumn #JIP_fall #raw_cuteness_fall #tgol_autumn #mmm_fallcolors #moc_091 #t_c_c_leaves #cc_fallvibes2 #my_magical_moments #wildandbravelittles #mom_hub #cameramama #dearphotographer #childrenseemagic #childhoodunplugged #runwildmychild #pixel_kids #jj_its_kids

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 289: 80s outfits) . I put a winter headband on Charlie to see if it fit her and it made her whole outfit look like something an 80s workout instructor would wear haha. She ran around the house showing me her muscles, taking a break on the yogi, and reading books. It cracks me up how she runs to the yogi and belly flops on it, then turns around and plunks right on the edge. . At one point she randomly stopped what she was doing, ran over to the wipes, pulled one out, and started cleaning the floor. Then she started cleaning random stuff all around the living room, including the sliding glass door to the deck. Does it still count as cleaning if you're actually adding more streaks to the glass? Her little personality is not so little anymore and I absolutely love it! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #80s

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 289: High chair wind) . Charlie's high chair has a removable tray that I take off and fan her with as an after-dinner game. She gets soooo excited and sucks in her breath while she flaps her arms and kicks her feet with pure joy. The second I stop, she'll say, "mooooore" or "more wind please" until I do it again. She'll request it about 5 or 6 times in a row and then all of a sudden say, "all done!" It's a fun, silly game we play almost every night after dinner and I want to remember her excitement and happiness from these moments! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #wind

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 288: Car nap) . We visited Oda and Obi at their house today and Charlie was so tired when we left (she took a shorter nap than usual earlier today) that she fell asleep in the car on the way home, even with snacks in her hands! Thankfully she still went to bed fairly easily for me an hour later. . Seeing her sleep in the daylight is super rare - ever since about 6 months old, she's needed the room to be as close to pitch black as possible to sleep well. We cosleep so I get to see her sleep right next to me all night but it's not the same as seeing her sweet face sleeping in the daylight! Pure innocence and perfection! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #galleryoflightfeature #myformerbump #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #ltbd_autumn #JIP_fall #raw_cuteness_fall #tgol_autumn #mmm_fallcolors #moc_091 #t_c_c_leaves #cc_fallvibes2 #my_magical_moments #wildandbravelittles #mom_hub #cameramama #dearphotographer #childrenseemagic #childhoodunplugged #runwildmychild #pixel_kids #jj_its_kids

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 286: Autumn rain) . It rained all day long today but we need to get out of the house so later in the evening I took Charlie outside to play in the rain in our backyard. She didn't seem to mind the rain at all and had fun collecting leaves and of course holding the bubble wand. . Today was also the first day that my mom was able to lay her down in the bed for nap! Charlie has always been held for the duration of her naps since the day she was born but she's getting so big now that it's tough to hold her for 2 hours straight. Over summer I got it down to a science that I could nurse her in bed and the ninja roll out of the room to let her nap alone but putting her down without my boob in her mouth is a whole different ball game. I nurse her to sleep every night since we co-sleep and its like magic that she's out within 15 minutes but it'll be great for her to learn to take naps on her own when I'm not there to nurse her to sleep during the day! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #autumn

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 285: Oda & Obi) . Charlie got to hang out with Oda, Obi, and my parents today while I went and photographed a couple in the beautiful autumn weather. . I took a video of her counting to 10 this morning. She's like a little sponge right now absorbing everything! She catches onto things so quickly, it's so fulfilling watching her learn and grow! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #oda #obi

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 284: Veggie sticks) . I gave Charlie veggie sticks for the first time today and she is obsessed. Like stares directly into your eyes and says "more" in this low-pitched, quiet, creepy, demanding way that sounds like she'll kill you if you don't give her more. 🤣 I think she loves how crunchy they are and trying out her new molars. . We went to the children's museum today since it was rainy (I caved and bought the season pass since we go so often). She had fun coloring, going down the slides, practicing climbing stairs, and playing with all sorts of puppets. I nursed her in the dark optical room upstairs in the peace and quiet (somehow no one was up there) and we came home and took Sunny for a walk once it stopped raining. Solid Mama & Charlie Saturday! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 283: Cleaning) . I was sitting in her playroom today when Charlie ran out into the living room. When I went around the corner to see what she was getting into, she was down on the ground cleaning the floor with a baby wipe that she had pulled out of the diaper caddy. Then she legitimately went around cleaning the counters and cabinets in the kitchen all by herself. We sang the clean up song and her wipe actually had dirt on it by the time she handed it to me and said, "all done!" 🤣 Also, she's been able to reach up to the countertops for a few months now but thankfully hasn't really discovered pulling things off yet. She's always been so tall and has been off the growth chart for height since 9 months! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #cleaning

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 280: Autumn foliage) . Today I had the day off from work and tried to think of fun places to go with Charlie but everywhere I could think of was closed or had off-hours because of Columbus Day. So I decided to take some fall photos of her now rust the leaves are changing. The leaves in our yard haven't changed much yet so we drove 3 roads away and found a little trail that opened up to a clearing with some awesome colorful foliage. C had fun running around, holding the car keys, and tapping rocks together. I even put my camera on self timer and got a photo of us together to prove I was there! Now if summer could just come back, that'd be great. . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #galleryoflightfeature #myformerbump #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #ltbd_autumn #JIP_fall #raw_cuteness_fall #tgol_autumn #mmm_fallcolors #moc_091 #t_c_c_leaves #cc_fallvibes2 #my_magical_moments #wildandbravelittles #mom_hub #cameramama #dearphotographer #childrenseemagic #childhoodunplugged #runwildmychild #pixel_kids #jj_its_kids

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 279: Smiling on command & covering eyes) . Charlie does her big goofy grin if you ask her to smile and it's my new favorite thing! It started with brushing her teeth and now she'll do it any time I ask her to. . She'll also fully close and cover her eyes if you ask her to while playing hide and seek, either with people hiding or hiding objects. (Swipe ⬅️) . Within the last few days and with the colder weather, she's started calling anything fleece her "cozies" except she says "tozies" and it's extra adorable! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #smile

#CharlieCheeseFries365 (Day 275: Pumpkin toad) . Today we carved a pumpkin but Charlie's favorite part by far was befriending the little toad that stopped to join us! She was pretty gentle with him until she tried to poke him a little too hard so I brought him to the woods and released him safely. Charlie got some good giggles from him jumping around though! . . . #CharlieCheeseFries #CharlotteGraceShirley #my_magical_moments #clickinmoms #galleryoflightfeature #momswithcameras #cameramama #dearphotographer #myformerbump  #dearest_viewfinder #momtogs #wildandbravelittles #ourlightwithin #themagicofchildhood #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesincerestoryteller #the_sugar_jar #follow_this_light #ourcandidlife #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #childrenseemagic #documentyourdays #letthembelittle #let_there_be_delight #365project #toddler #toad
