It's a good time to capture what life is like for Charley at two and a half. She has so much spunk and it's finally coming out in her speech! She is starting to string together 4-6 word sentences and loves telling Jackson what to do.
The very best thing she says is "Smow!" It comes out when she wants to wear "Smow boots", if it's "smowing outside", or if she wants to "smuggle wif mama." I love it! She also loves singing happy birthday to things she likes. We sing happy birthday about 20 times every day while making our way through a list of people, places, and things that she loves.
We just got back from an awesome trip to Ohio and were gearing up for another weekend in St. Louis when she got hit with a respiratory virus. She's pretty sick on day 5 of this thing and we're just hoping that it starts getting better soon!
Last night was the roughest yet. She just couldn't get comfortable at all. We tried just about every sleeping position until it was morning. The worst part about the sickies is that it keeps her from getting the rest she needs to kick this thing.
