Bringing up Baby in a Brooklyn Shoebox

So on Monday, we realized Charlie knows how to sing “Let it Go.” He’s never seen Frozen. #whattheheck

I think Charlie’s happy to be home. Let me set the scene for you here: It’s post-bath time. I had been unpacking and straightening up until I realized the peaceful silence I was experiencing could only mean one thing: trouble. Charlie had found an empty Tylenol bottle and was stuffing it with toilet paper, then filling it with water, dumping the contents into the sink and repeating. In the sink you see the drain stopper on top of a glass candle jar and the water running. It’s hot water. The wax is completely melted and now Charlie’s fingers are covered in it; the candle is ruined. And the toilet paper is clogging the sink. Oh, and I did not put that hat on him. 

Before Charlie (B.C.) I never would have thought I could love someone so much yet want to pull my hair out about 100000 times per day because of that same person. Turns out it’s totally possible. I really love this little man. #toddlerlife #totalmess #toddlerexperiments

This weekend we re-celebrated Charlie’s b-day with Mom Mom and Pap. He was THRILLED, of course, and proceeded to lick nearly all the icing off one side of the cake. #toddlerlife #charlieistwo

Charlie became a “mini ranger” during today’s visit to Assateague. The vest is just for show: He hated it; we loved it. #assateague #easternshore #toddlerlife
