New Charlie Pics
Sincere apologies to anyone who has been checking here for an update.... Writing that a "full update with pictures" would be up the day after arriving home was a bit ambitious. Especially since Charlie hates when I'm on the computer and refuses to allow me to get online while she is awake. I've been overwhelmed with unpacking, laundry, 6 foot weeds in the garden, shopping, a sick dog and vet visits, etc.
I've finally downloaded the hundreds of pictures and videos that were taken by me. There are also hundreds taken by all 20 of my family members. So in those thousands of pictures, I'm sure there must be some good shots in there. Here are two, to get started.
This is Charlie in her pink bathing suit and matching hat, one of my favorite outfits for her.
She loved the pool and the sea and wanted to go in whenever it was an option.
It was great for Charlie to meet her extended family and all her cousins. Although she is still very young, she was interacting with her cousins and sort of playing with them (rather than the "parallel play" expected at her age). All the adults loved her immediately and spent 2 weeks playing with her constantly. She sure got her fill of attention! She can't wait to see them all again, hopefully soon.
