Where does the time go?

It’s been a long time since I’ve uploaded any pictures. Part of the problem is that we got a fancy new camera, and now our pictures are so big that it slows my poor computer to a grind to work with them.

Much news since the end of March. Probably the biggest news is that Charlie is quite the crawling master now. He can get just about anywhere he wants, and has become an expert at pulling books off of shelves and finding all manner of carpet lint and dirt, which are far too plentiful in our house.

He pulls up to a stand quite easily now. He can stand with only a tiny bit of help from something to hold onto or lean against. He’s trying to walk away from his supports, which has resulted in a number of minor falls and near misses. Actually the frequency of ‘bonks,’ which is what I say when he bumps his head, has decreased quite a bit now that his sitting, crawling, and standing skills are getting better.

He also has a mouth full of teeth now. He is currently cutting his 5th tooth. I sort of miss my big gummy smile, but I guess they grow up whether you want them to or not.

There are LOTS of pictures behind the cut, so if you’re on dial-up be prepared for a bit of a download.
