Tuesday with Charlie | Capturing the Moment.

...Charlie and I met up with Katie this afternoon at Avalon. We grabbed a blanket and sat down in the courtyard. The last time I was outside in the afternoon (without sweating) was in Madison...at the beginning of July. Of course it's not going to last - yes it is August...in Atlanta - but wow, this weather is glorious!

And oh my is Charlie having fun moving around! Katie took the camera first and then I did. It's always hard to "capture the moment", but getting the good ones, with an almost one year old, yeah... he's off in a million directions and when we're looking here, he wants to look there (especially when "there" is a pair of sisters aged four and two - strangers to us before this afternoon - who delighted in showing off to make him smile...or flirt?!).

Case in point.
and as if the toddler isn't enough, I have a curl that wants to mis-behave!
The courtyard where we sat is huge. Once those sisters left, Charlie had the run of the whole space. He loved it. (apologies for the lighting...we didn't want to apply sunscreen, so we were all in the shade!)

So glad I had all this to share because the rest of the week might be light here. I've got a big newsletter to get out Thursday evening...and I've just started to prep. Hope to be back soon! (and with  at least one FO to share!)

  1. Charlie is an adorable flirt! Thanks for sharing those really fun first teetering, tottering steps. I love how he gently plops down, gets right back up, and keeps on going!
