My sweet girl

Yesterday my sweet Charlotte just made me smile all day long. It's amazing how much she has grown. I just wanted to share a couple of things that Charlotte does to make me smile.
*she loves everything- there is not a day that goes by where Charlotte doesn't say how she "loves something. Her cup, cheese, random objects around the house, and she always tells us that she loves her boy".
*yesterday I was finishing dinner and George was getting fussy so I asked Charlotte to read him a book. She grabbed "Going on a Bear Hunt" and started to "read" it. We read it all the time, so she has it memorized the story. It was so awesome to hear her reading the story to her brother. Scott, stop painting to hear read to George too. She is on her way to being a great reader.
*she was playing last night in the kitchen with old spice containers and of course they turned into little characters. I was listening to her talk to them, and it went a little like this:
Charlotte-"Michael jump into the nest! Be careful!"
Mom-"Who is Michael?"
Charlotte- "My friend?"
Later at dinner Scott and I were trying to figure out where the name Michael came from. We asked Charlotte she said, "from dad's special book"
We finally figured out that it is from one of Scott's children books that only mommy and daddy read to her. She is just so smart.
Just a few moments I wanted to share, mainly I just don't want to forget.

Fuhriman Family Fun!

(I've been waiting for Scott to do this post, but I'm not sure when he'll get around to doing it.)
After George's blessing we all(the Fuhriman clan)went to Boise, Idaho for my nephews Brant and Diego's Eagle Scout Projects. They rebuilt and rededicated a monument that their uncles did twenty-five years ago. We are super proud of both of them, it turned out out awesome!

It was a great week and we made a lot of great memories. Here are my favorite pictures from the week.

He is just so handsome!

Grandchildren, 18 out of 23. I think that's right?

George takes after his Uncle Tim

Nancy was one of my young women's leaders as a teen. It was so great to see her and her family.

Oh please, stop.

Next time all eight children get to together I vote on hiring a Professional Photographer. Maybe then we'll have everyone's face in view! (Bob)

And all of this happened because two people fell in love. Aren't they cute?

Three Months!

George is such a good baby. Here's what he's been up to:

-Every once in while I can get him to giggle really loud, which is just the cutest thing ever.
-He still loves to cuddle, which is one of my favorite things too.
-He has grown out of all of his 3 month old sleepers.
-He no longer has chicken legs, just a bunch of rolls.
-He coos at people he loves.
-He grunts in his sleep.
-He grunts when he's awake.
-And he does like it when his clothes don't have poop on them, so he has a blow out diaper at least once a day.

He's a keeper!
