Some fun things . . .

Charlotte slept through the night last night! Hurray! She slept from 10:30 pm to 6:45 am and I was so proud of her.

Also fun--at the gym I saw my first live raccoon. He meandered in front of the window when I was on the treadmill and I got so excited. Nobody else there thought it was very special though.

Since we moved in, Peter has often says when he has walked in that the apartment smells like curry. We finally checked our mail at the new place and these are the names of people that used to live here:

Yegna Ramasubramania
Nemali Balakrishnan
Yashodhan Joshi
Kamakshi Balakrishnan
Yegna Balasubrananian

Curry indeed!

Charlotte can use her bumbo now! She does not always love it but she is so cute in it.

More bumboness . . .

I love the bit of chub she gets under her eyes when she smiles!

I don't know why I couldn't get this picture the right way, but here she is just hanging out with her daddy.

Charlotte and her smiles!

We blessed our sweetie Charlotte today and it was an awesome experience. We have been the luckiest parents to get such a darling baby and I will post some pics from that soon.

Here is a video of her hanging out with her Uncle Kevin (it is kind of noisy in the background but that is the best we have for now). She was really smiley and talkative today . . .

And here she is just hanging out on the ground.

Our Apartment

Here is a virtual tour of our apartment almost all unpacked . .

Our move to Michigan . . . take 2

Within a week, we received a job offer, packed up our apartment in Texas, and moved to Michigan where Peter has already started his new job. It was too amazing of a job offer to pass up as Peter will get to work on the Viper team.

While we went from a high of 80 degrees to a high of 40 degrees with a chance of snow tonight, moving to Michigan definitely has its perks.
Peter's family lives here and it is a blast being by them.
It is beautiful here right now and I got to see some leaves in their fall splendor.

And one of my favorite perks . .
I get to buy Charlotte lots of new clothes! Here she is nice and toasty warm. She also has a sweet bear suit and some fun tights so she can be stylish in the cold.

Charlotte is starting to smile lots each day and here is the tail end of one. Anytime we get our camera out she gets shy and so we haven't got a full on smile in a picture yet.

There are tons of things that we will miss about Texas (the warmth, the tex mex, the community events) but most of all we will miss our friends. We had the best friends there and will miss them the most.
