One and Done

I visit my blog every couple days to mainly read all the blogs that I follow. I love keeping in touch and reading everyone’s posts. I don’t have much to say on my blog these days since we are no longer TTC. We are enjoying life with a toddler and trying to keep up with her. I can’t believe that Charlotte is already 17 months old. She runs the house hold and is starting to talk more. There have been lots of discussions in our home about a potential second baby. After many deep conversations and a few tears we have decided against any more fertility treatments. It’s what is best for our family at this time. Leave me your email if you want to connect on FB or Instagram. Until then I will leave you with a few of my favorite pictures.

The Beach

She loved every second of visiting San Diego! She played in the chilly water, ate sand, knocked down sand castles, went on a bike ride, lots of walks, and spent a day at Sea World! She had a perma smile! I did realize that a vacation with older parents and a one year old is a lot of work. We were exhausted by the time we got home. Totally worth it but exhausted.

First Birthday!

We just celebrated Charlotte’s first birthday and it was a blast! I may have gone a bit overboard but it was totally worth every second of her happiness. Charlotte loves people and attention so she was in heaven during her party. There were about 10 kids - ages ranging from 8 months old to four and she played with them all. She may have made two of the little boys cry… Here are some photos.
We are really excited to see what the next year brings. She already amazes us every day. Bullets from the last couple weeks…. • She can say Dog (and bark like one), Eli (her favorite cousin), Hi and NO. Still waiting for her to say Mommy and Daddy with meaning! She babbles all day long and I really want to know what she is thinking! • She is always holding her hand to her ear pretending to be on the phone. She will put it over her ear and say Hi. • She can now run…if she knows you want to grab her she will squeal and pick up the pace to get away from you. It makes me laugh every time. • She feeds the dogs from her highchair. I have to lock them up now during dinner. • She will grab a book and back up to sit in your lap so you can read together…love this. • We started to transition to whole milk and she loves it. • The only food she won’t eat is broccoli • Leaving tomorrow for her first trip to the Beach! San Diego here we come!

Is it really August?

Umm…I am in shock that Charlotte is turning one next week. They weren’t lying when they said that time flies the first year. I have been busy planning her first birthday party. Here’s a sneak peek…
We are going on our first family vacation in September with my parents. C’s first trip to the beach! We are heading over to San Diego which is a 6 hour drive. Any tips for a long car ride with a one year old or tips on what I need at the beach??? Then in October we are flying to Florida for C’s Great Grandpas 100th birthday. Wondering how a 5 hour plan flight will be with her. I’m excited for the adventures but a little nervous to travel with her. Any helpful hints would be great!
She is now walking…soon to be running everywhere. She is very proud of herself and barley lets me hold her. She is a very busy girl always on a mission - usually it’s to play in the dog bowls. She loves moving their food from one bowl to the next. (She may or may not lick each piece of food as she does this)
Hope everyone is well. I will post first birthday photos soon! Cheers!

I know that I can’t just start writing on here like I haven’t missed the last 8 months of blogging and I’m not even sure if anyone still reads this blog but…. I want to leave this space here so hopefully my story can help someone else. I still follow all the blogs on my reader. I am not the best commenter but I am nosy enough to read! Please email me if you want to connect in Facebook or Instagram.

Things with us are great. Charlotte is keeping us very busy. She is a very determined 10 month old. I am busy planning her first birthday party. We are going with a hot pink/ Zebra theme! I can’t wait. I am still trying to figure out how to balance working full time and spending as much time with her. I am very lucky because my sister watches her for me. C gets lots of love and attention. Right now my sister’s four kids (ages 12 to 21) are home on summer break and spoil C. I don’t think they ever put her down!

I’m starting to come to terms that she will probably be our one and only baby. Since having her I have not been on bc in hopes of the miracle BFP but nothing yet. We have two frosties that we are considering using but they are not the best quality. Hubs and I have decided to not do IVF again so…I guess I will patiently wait for my miracle while enjoying running after C! I have saved all of her baby clothes and gear in hopes to get to use it again. It takes up half of our guest room. Not sure how long I should save the stuff. I guess for a year and after that re-evaluate.

Happy Monday and I will try to post more than once every six months!
