"We understand our lives, or try to, by the stories we tell."

She is adorable. And I love the name Charlotte. Thank you for sharing!
Gorgeous!Also, my toddler's favorite word is "again"...just teach her that.
As the Italians say (I live in Rome) "Tanti Auguri" to lovely Charlotte! And Have a Happy Boomer Holiday! I say boomer (not only because I am one but because I wrote a baby boomer novel or BB novel). Yes, BB lit is a new genre, a pendant to YA, only it's on the other side of "maturity"...and I'm betting it'll catch on in 2013 like wildfire (there are 78 million boomers out there)! It has already started with a dedicated group on Goodreads. So there you are: have a Merry Boomer Christmas and get a BB novel for the boomer in your life!
Remember: always buy presents that are really loud and require a lot of batteries.
Congratulations. I love the schedule, including planning in advance for the gap year. Good move there. Charlotte is a great name. My poor son got named after Captain Kirk--I just have to hope he doesn't hate me for it. He's 18 months old now, bi-lingual, and my favorite picture of him so far is a shot of him trying to pick up one of my dumbbells (only 15 pounds, but still.) He looks just like one of the normal dudes trying to pick up Thor's hammer. Do I have any advice? Hmmm. Decide early if you want her anywhere near iPads and iPhones and such. My son spends way too much time watching Youtube videos and videos of himself. No idea what this will mean, developmentally. Well, we hope for the best! Happy holidays, happy new year, and best of everything to Charlotte.
