So I read this blog post from the Pioneer Woman a few days ago called Ten Things I've Learned About Blogging. Number two on her list is: Blog Often. She writes: "Consider your blog a precious bloom that requires daily nurturing. And watering. If you water a plant every two weeks, it will shrivel." Sadly enough, I was that girl who killed her bamboo plant in college. Yes, a bamboo plant. You don't even need to water that thing - just stick it in a glass of water. But I was too lazy. I let it shrivel. And die. I didn't throw it out until it got moldy.
Hopefully I don't treat this blog like that bamboo plant. Life just gets so busy sometimes and it's easy to make excuses. But if I'm gonna commit to this, I need to make a better effort. So I'm sorry for abandoning you for the past few weeks. But I'm back. And I have watering can in hand.
Charlotte is growing up so fast.
She's starting to crawl and really does improve every day. She went after my chicken taquitos today. I put the plate on the floor to get a glass to water. By the time I turned around, she was trying to eat a taquito. Smart little girl.
She has friends. I didn't have friends until I went to kindergarten! I thought everyone in the world was a cousin of some form. And everyone spoke Vietnamese except for Big Bird and Cookie Monster. Here she is just hanging out with her buddy!
She can go grocery shopping. We took her to Dudleys Bakery a few weekends ago for some tastilicious bread. She grabbed a loaf of jalapeno cheddar from the shelf and wouldn't let go.
She can hold onto a cup, kindove.
And most importantly, her hair is growing...out. My little girl has a mohawk. So proud.
