ocean city

jakes sister bethany is here this week to visit so we decided to go to ocean city and go to the beach. its about two hours away. the drive isnt too bad. we only stayed for short time becuase it was pretty humid and charlee didnt like the sun that much, or the water it was a bit too cold for her. but we had a great time.

charlee and her daddy
we keept her under an umbrella most of the time, but she still sweated like crazy

my friend alissa bought these sunglasses for her, they were a bit too big. the package said newborn to 3years. she didnt like them that much either.

Bows, bows, and more bows

when my mother in law was here she showed me how to make bows. we went to the store and got some ribbon and they turned out great. thanks julie. here are some pictures of charlee with the bows on her head. then there are just some random pictures of her. oh and the blanket that shes laying on louise (she helped make the blessing dress) made for her isnt it so cute?

all the bows

i think this one is a little big, it will have to wait for a while

isnt she so cute? she loves to smile though it takes a while to get her to do it.

blessing dress

when we move back were going to bless the baby and my mom had this wonderful idea to make a blessing dress out of my wedding dress. so we asked my mother in law to make the dress. she had her friend louise help her and they did a wonderful job! its practically an exact replica of my wedding dress, those are the actual sleves and the split down the middle is the same that was on my wedding dress. i cant wait to actually see her in it. thank you so much julie and louise! i absoultely love it!
