Charis is eleven months old today. It sure doesn’t seem like that long since she was born! Joy and I got to take her to attend her first birthday party last Saturday for one of her friends. Drew just turned one, and they had a fun outdoor party (Charis loves being outside) with barbecue and, of course, birthday cake. We didn’t let Charis have any cake since we still don’t let her eat things with lots of sugar, but she did get to try two new things: hot dogs and barbecued pork. She really liked both of them, which isn’t too much of a surprise since at this point she will eat almost anything. Anyway, we had a good time and Charis was in a good mood, so hopefully that was good practice for Charis’s first birthday that is just one month away.
