Sooooo, almost five (FIVE!!!) months ago I posted on Charlie's birthday. This is unacceptable!  So much has happened since then!! I'm not feeling guilty for my silence- anyone with littles running around understands how much of a success it is just to have dinner on the table and clothes washed on a regular basis.  But, I do feel sad since this little blog has been a sort of journal of the past 4 years of the Benson clan, and so many important things have gone undocumented!

That being said, I'm going to attempt to get a little caught up on what we've been up to the past few months. The next few posts will be oooooold news, so feel free to scroll through!  They're mostly for my benefit (and the grandparents'), anyways!!!

So we did celebrate when Charlotte turned 1.  We had some friends over for cake and partied down!  Henry, Charlotte's future bf, turned one just a few weeks before, and his bday party got canceled due to the poor little buddy getting sick, so we honored him, too.

As you can see, Abby was totally into the whole "party" thing.

Charlotte sort of picked at the cake for a while...

...before she grabbed it and started chowing down like it was a piece of corn on the cob!

It was so much fun celebrating her, our sweet, hilarious, cuddly, adventurous little girl!
