Charlotte's Growth Chart

Charlotte finally has a growth chart! I started it a couple weeks ago and it is finally finished and hanging in her room. It's super fancy. I'm talking a hot-glued hem and everything. Yeah, we roll high class around here. Charlotte wasn't a huge fan of standing still long enough for me to get an accurate measurement, so as best I can tell, she's about 2'3.75" . Such a big girl :)

At first, it seemed like she would stand still long enough for me to get a good measurement Then she high-tailed it into the closet
And shut us out
Not cooperating
Making sure I give her every inch she deserves
"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen." 2 Peter 3:18
In the perfect world, I would have ironed it before I hung it up. I guess Heaven is the perfect world, so I'm thinking all clothes there are wrinkle-free. Shoot, I bet you don't even have to do laundry in Heaven!

In other news, she has realized that she can open up the piano cover just enough to make some "joyful noise".

And the most recent pasttime in the Rollins home (a "recent pasttime"? Is that possible? In the Rollins home, yes it is.)- Dragging a clothes basket (with her in it, of course), across the floor as fast as possible. The squeals that ensue are just hilarious.

The last picture makes me laugh because Jeff has done the same thing with Hannah. He even tied a rope around it and pulled her around...even across the yard. I was loving that. What must the neighbors think?! :)
