Charlie turned 17 months old yesterday. Almost a year and a half! Lately he has been saying animal sounds (dog, cat, sheep, chicken), he loves to wear shoes and wants to put them on with his PJs first thing in the morning, he loves to wave and say bye (sometimes says it when he first sees someone, hasn't gotten hi/hello yet). He is finally 100% bottle free. And he had his first babysitter at our house on Saturday. Abigail is a 17 year old gal who was recommended by a friend and it all went perfectly.
