Shawn is now in Week 2 of the International MBA program at GA State, but he's not the only Butler learning new tricks! Charlotte is learning and changing so rapidly now. She has turned into a wild child overnight, it seems. Maybe it's the change in diet? Is it the super-vitamin-infused sweet potatoes? She doesn't stay put very long when I put her down; this is both exciting and a little scary. She is constantly reaching and grabbing for toys, clothing, hair, plastic bags, animals... or whatever else is within reach.

Charlotte was a real crowd-pleaser in Sunday School this week. She was too wiggly to stay in my lap, so I put her down to play. She then rolled under the pew and made friends with the woman sitting behind us! When we took her back, she kept glancing over her shoulder at the Sunday School teacher and breaking out in tears. He has a booming, dynamic voice that Charlotte finds rather scary. We then tried putting her in the side aisle so that we could see her but she couldn't see the teacher. However, Shawn finally had to take her out in the hall because she was making loud "Indian noises" by yelling and pulling her fist in and out of her mouth
Charlotte making "Indian noises," a skill acquired while hanging out with Aunt Dana.
Charlotte is getting ready to crawl soon. She can pull herself onto her hands and knees and rock, but she only scoots backwards when she tries to get somewhere. She also enjoys standing up while holding our hands for balance and support. Charlotte is happiest when she is moving, playing, and exploring.
Charlotte looks just like Shawn in this shot!
