Charlotte's 3 Month Pictures

Here are Charlotte's 3 month pictures. I am a little late at getting these out but it's worth it! She's a doll!!

About here is when she decided she was done. First puke, then crying, then a headband popping off her head...poor thing.

13 Week Family Photo

This was taken July 19th...Charlotte's 3 month birthday!!


In all the time Jim and I have been together we had never made it to the Omaha zoo. We had been planning to go this weekend for quite some time since we were already in town to pick up Rudy (my Dad and Deb's dog) to spend the week with us while they were on vacation. We took Jayke with us and had a FANTASTIC day!!
Here is Jim, Jayke, Charlotte and I getting ready to view the zoo! Jayke did NOT want to pose for this picture.
A little baby monkey....too cute!
For all other breastfeeding glad our nipples don't hang down for free reign all of the time.
Going through the rainforest

Jayke and I by the waterfall.

Parrot or Macaw...basically a pretty bird

Fishes in the aquarium

Charlotte woke up while we were in the gorilla house and so we went ahead and watched the gorillas play while we fed her. She then had a massive blowout and we had to throw her shirt away and everything. After that she was happy as a clam and enjoying the zoo.

Here she is awake now with her dad chewing on her hands like usual.

While Jim took Jayke to the petting zoo, which is what he had been looking forward to all day, Charlotte and I played on her blanket in the grass and took a bunch of pictures.

Wow...what a stretch!

I absolutely adore this picture!!!

Little Sweet Pea!

Chewing on her toys

This peacock was in the bushes right behind Charlotte and there was one across the way giving his mating call. I had to hurry and pick her up so she could rush on over to the male one.

It ran across her blanket and past our stroller.

Jayke climbing the hippo

On the train at the end of the day, Charlotte was spent!

But she woke back up when the whistle blew so here we are with our daughter one last time for the day.

Boy she sure loves her Daddy!

Family BBQ

This year we were intending on having our bbq on the weekend of the 4th again but unfortunately a bunch of people couldn't make it. So, we moved it to the weekend of the 11th. It turned out to be good because the weather on the fourth was rainy and dreary.

I was very pleased at all the people that came! My grandparents made the trip which was very nice for them to see our home. Jim's mom, sister, aunt and cousin came with her little boy Jackson. My Mom, Dad, Frank, Jesse and Cheryl came. And a lot of my aunts and uncles and cousins made the trip. Even Sofia (Shaun and Sara's newest addition to the Skudler clan) came!

Here are some pictures of the days events:

Jim, Jayke, Charlotte and I
