A First time for Everything

What an exciting night at the Ritchie house! Charlotte got to try all sorts of new things!

It all started when I tried to give her a bottle. Usually she eats AT LEAST every 4 hours...most times she makes it to about 3.5 and is looking at me like "Come on lady, I'm hungry." Well, tonight it had been almost 6 hours, but whenever I would offer her a bottle she would turn her head and purse her lips. Where did she learn to be so dang stubborn?!?! Anyway, out of curiosity I busted out a box of rice cereal to see what she would do.

Started out not so bad...more confused than anything...
Hey, this isn't so bad!
Enoughs enough! Not too bad for a first try. We'll give it another try tomorrow!

After giving herself a little time to digest, Charley got to try out her 4 month birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy. It was delivered this afternoon and Daddy had it all set up and ready to go when we got home.

She was so incredibly focused that I couldn't even get her signature smile out of her! Maybe once she's had time to soak it all in.
Haha! Look at those chicken legs! And to think that I told someone today that her thighs were starting to "beef up!" You would never guess it by this picture. Her legs aren't quite long enough so we had to give her a little boost.
She's growing so quickly...Before we know it she's going to be 35 and going on her first date!


  1. These are great--I remember the first time we put Luke in the jumperoo, he bounced side to side instead of up and down and then fell asleep!

  2. Wow! What a BIG day! Keep up the good work! Love you!

  3. How very cute! She's just growing and changing all of the time! This blog is so great but only because you are awesome about keeping it up to date! Thank you for that!!! Love to all.
