Charlie's 1st Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Little Buddy! We love having a little boy in our house. I can't believe it has already been a whole year! Charlie has made our family so much more fun and interesting.
Charlie has an infectious smile and laugh. He often stares people down until they look back so he can smile at them. One person recently said, "he seems to wise." It's true. Already he seems very contemplative and curious about his world.
Charlie loves balls, and it is a good thing, because his dad has been waiting for a boy to throw the ball around with before he gets too old to do it! Better hurry, Charlie! Only a few more years left!


Cheers to you, Charlie! We are so lucky to celebrate you on your birthday!

Look at those fun CAKES! With our little boy on the way, I need to take notes from you. He is such a smiley boy too! And so easy-going, rough and tough, and playful. We need to get him and Kelsey together again!

I can't even begin to descibe how exciting yet TOTALLY weird it's going to be to see Charlie again! I keep thinking, "Last time, he was just over two months old.... now he's probably going to be walking AND talking!??!" I'm so excited to get to know him again!!!!

It shocks me too with every picture that I see how much he reminds me of Ellie when she was that age... They could have been twins!!!

Happy Birthday Little Charlie (figurativly of course ;) ) you are so blessed and loved by your family! See you soon!!!!
