Every 6 months we measure the kids on their growth charts. As of 2 weeks ago, Charlotte had grown about 2 inches since January. She's still a peanut though and I suspect still in about the 25 percentile for height. She'll always be a cute little package. :)
Nature or nuture? I don't know what prevails most often but Charlotte like most other girls I know, has been a "mama" since she was about 1 year old. She loves her babies and often walks around "hushing" them and telling them to go to sleep (all while giving them a hug). It's adorable to watch.
