I was picking out pictures for this post and ran across these newborn pictures. He was so new to this world. Barely a week old. Oh the sweet emotions that came flooding back looking at these!
|He likes finding different picture effects on my phone and then taking pictures with it. On occasion he wants me to take one of him as well. This is one of my favorites. It is always humorous to go back and look at the pictures he took.|
|I came to preschool for a parent day before Christmas and Charlie and I made that masterpiece tree magnet right there. As a side note; I can't get enough of his "camera" faces.|

Yes, I do love dear Charlie. I won't lie, there are plenty of days where he makes us completely exasperated and leaves me feeling like I am really terrible at this whole mom gig, but I absolutely love seeing the world through his eyes. He is learning so much each and every day. It seems like he is always asking some question that is surprisingly thoughtful and mature for his age.
He is a kind hearted, curious, determined, silly little guy and I am ever so glad that he is mine.
Happy birthday Charlie!!!
