Football, Wings & Family

So, Sunday we went up to Jacksonville to spend the afternoon. We got in about 2:00 and had a little time to hang out in J&J's apartment. Charlie was none too happy to see us. I don't think she had enough of a nap. That and the fact that we only get to see her once a month or so, she has to get used to us all over again!

She's such a little doll baby, though, and growing so fast. You can see now that her movements are much more controlled and purposeful. She loves her little play saucer and keeps her balance in it really well. She'll be sitting up on her own in no time.

After visiting for a little bit we went over to Babies 'R Us, and Jen got Charlie's costume for Halloween. I'm not saying what it is yet, though. You'll have to wait for the Halloween post. I can tell you, though, they'll be here at our house for Halloween. Since J&J live in an apartment, they'd rather go trick-or-treating in a neighborhood and we have a pretty darn nice one... that and this will be the first year since we've been here that the kids will get to go out with their friends for Halloween.

I also got Charlie a few outfits since she is outgrowing her current wardrobe. I just love getting baby clothes...

Anyhow.. about 4:00 we headed to one of our favorite restaurants in Jacksonville: Buffalo's Southwest CafĂ© (we went to the one in Raleigh quite a bit when we lived there).  It's a Sunday ritual for Jen and Jeremy to watch the football games there with friends. It was great to see them all...

Of course, the best part was holding Charlie asleep in my arms and stealing lots and lots of kisses.

Of course Nate will probably say the best part was his dessert of fried cheese cake.
Julz & Richard split a Buffalo chip. Basically a large chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream on top. I tasted both just to make sure they were okay but I had Charlie! Who needs more than that?

Charlie is growing so fast. It won't be long and off she'll go crawling and then the walking or should I say running starts. You're one lucky lady with that special little one.
