Farm Animals

We went to the zoo this morning because it's the first day in a long time that hasn't been very hot. What I failed to account for was the increased humidity. I sweated, alot. Charlotte is finally starting to enjoy the animals. She is really into Old MacDonald right now. She sings the song, all day. So we went and checked out all the farm animals, and she petted the horse and mooed at the cows. I can't wait for fall.

All grown up? Not quite yet!

Who's big girl is this? Sara and Charlotte left for Utah last Tuesday morning. To be honest, I had been secretly waiting for a little Dustin time. I thought I would enjoy all of the free time and the freedom to do what I wanted, when I wanted to do it. I was kind of in a bachelor haze for most of the day on Tuesday as I had all of these plans to have fun and relax. As Tuesday night was coming to a close I realized just how much I already missed my family. 7:00 pm rolled around and Charlotte was nowhere to be found for night, night. This is a well kept secret, but lil CharChar prefers to have her daddy put her down for naps and bedtime. What I didn't know is that I too had come to depend on putting Charlotte to sleep as a way of bonding with my little sweetheart. Then 9:00 pm came and went and there was no one to snuggle with. (yes we go to bed at 9. What's the big deal?)

Sara sent this picture to me of Charlotte in her new dress (thank you aunt Cyndi). Over the last six days it seems that Charlotte has grown up so much. She has shared some new animals sounds with me over Skype and has started saying nono when she perceives that someone will say it to her.

I can't wait to see my girls. Only a few days left...
