Charli in Charleston:

From trips around  town, to play dates with friends, to Happy Hours with Mommy and Daddy... Our little girl has been very busy! 

This week... 
We visited the South Carolina Aquarium with our friends Emily and her little boy Henry on Tuesday

It wasn't nearly as large as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but it was still so much fun and they had a lot of things to offer! I look forward to bringing all of our guests here when they come to visit, and I hope that Charli starts to feel more comfortable as we continue to go... (she was pretty terrified of the large fish and alligators , and would not let me put her down... she never had these problems in Monterey, but I also feel it was because she was younger and didn't quite understand... but now that she is older, and more aware of what is around her, she has been very sensitive towards things lately, and a lot of things scare her very easily). 
But all in all, we had a great time with our friends!

This makes daddy proud! ;)

An Albino Alligator... Yep, pretty much the scariest looking thing ever... Charli was terrified and crying, and I was right there with her... (it was trying to climb its way out to us...)

Liberty, the Bald Eagle

After our play date at the Aquarium, we headed for some lunch on the water at Fleet Landing! It was a perfect afternoon with our friends! Looking forwrd to our next play date with them! 

Wednesday morning we had another play date scheduled with Tallulah and Leighton! We headed over to their house and the girls played and swam in the pool...

Ate some lunch, played some more, mommy got monagram stitching lessons, then it was back to the house for a nap! 

Thursday we headed in to Daddy's office for a lunch date

Charli thinks she runs the joint... 

Then Thursday evening we got all fancy...

And we headed into Downtown for a perfect little Happy Hour at Halls Chophouse with some friends

It was a perfect evening full of nice wines and apps... Couldn't get any better! ;)

As you can see we are loving every minute of every day here and I think it is safe to say that Charli is too! We look forward to all of the things we will do while we are here, and all of the friendships we will make! 


Happy Friday everyone, hope you enjoy your weekend! 

I know I sure will! ;) I am heading down to Jax to spend the weekend with some of my best friends and we are going to the Mumford and Sons Festival in St. Augustine! I am so excited for my very first 'Mommy Weekend Getaway' but I am already so sad about leaving Charli... This will be the longest I have ever been away from her, but I know her and Daddy are going to have such a fun time together! You can follow me on instagram @tracihhall for updates on my 'Mommy Weekend Getaway'! 


  1. Charli's crab bubble is perfect for a trip to the aquarium! And I would be scared of that albino alligator too. Ick! And Charli's dress for Thursday night - LOVE IT! Where did you get it? I can't wait to start buying cute clothes for this new little one! Buying girls clothing is definitely addicting! :)

  2. Okay, these pictures are just too perfect! She is seriously the cutest little babe I have ever seen!!
