The Fall after Joy was born I took Charlie to the park and it was just the two of us. Even at that age she loved spending one on one time with me. She'd let us know when she needed more attention by whining to me even when nothing was wrong, (she still does this,) and I figured out that I needed to spend alone time with her. Now she will whine and I'll ask her is something really wrong or do you just need me to be with you and she knows the difference. She is so easy that way.
Feeding her baby. Also known as MY BABY.
I took her to the Ft Worth zoo by herself and the whole time she told me how much her sister would love it there.
Sharing a ride
Now that's what I'm talking about. I want to enlarge this picture one day to show her how much she helped mommy when Joy was a baby.
Charlie has asked me if we can have another baby and I've told her no but she can have a puppy one day. A long long time from now of course. I'm not crazy.
