I'll always have you

Our weekend wasn't too eventful, which is kind of the way we like them!

Friday night, as I posted before Charli went to bed with NO pain medicine Friday night. She didn't even wake up needed any, I was so surprised. She is the toughest little girl I know...toughest person I know!

Saturday I went to Grand Island with my mom, I had fun! I wanted to look into getting a new computer. I have no clue if mom enjoyed herself but I did. When I got home I realized that I can't remember the last time I went shopping with my mommy! We got my computer and spent the rest of the afternoon looking for some new clothes for work! We had a nice relaxing lunch and didn't seem to be in a rush - which felt nice. When we got back to Columbus she headed home to pick up dad and they went out to visit my sister...for Shawn's birthday (tomorrow).

Charli and Daddy stayed home, and enjoyed themselves...a lot! Charli does all sorts of weird things when she is home with her dad! She feel asleep eating this time, last week she feel asleep on the floor while playing/reading his magazine! They really enjoy getting to spend the extra time together. I always feel guilty leaving, but know that they like it when I am gone!
Today we all stayed home! We did venture out for groceries and a trip to Wal-Mart and Tractor Supply!!

We have our "Charli" back now, and it is great!! She has been eating really well, and sleeping well...she is so happy and just so much fun to be around! She is getting so silly. And, it is monkey see, spider-monkey do now more than ever! The good stuff, and the bad stuff!! She loves to help clean up her toys and throw things away. She really LOVES her fridge radio that she dances to about 100 times a day! And, she is understanding so much. She can get a toy that is a specific color, put things in order of size to fit together, and she will saw both Wynston and Kaspers name! And...she is trying to say "Amanda"! She also is learning some animal noises...her best is the piggy!!

Tomorrow is my first day...wish me luck!

There is so much more I want to say about what Charli is doing, but I guess ya'll will just have to visit her to see for yourself!!
