Happy Birthday, dear Charlie


What a difference 3 years makes.  March 14 will always be one of my favorite days.  It was the day I became a mommy, and brought this sweet, smart, handsome baby boy into the world.  I get emotional every year starting around 6pm on March 13...the hour that Noel drove me to the hospital.  

Charlie is one of the most perceptive human beings I've ever known.  He can sense the way people are feeling, and it rips at my heartstrings every time I witness it.  Last night, as we were coming home from his gymnastics class, we were talking about the gorgeous moon,  and why it was shaped the way it was, and he said "yep, and that's how Heavenly Father made it.".  That's right, my darling.

Noel and I prayed so hard for this little baby, and he is even more perfect than we ever could have dreamed he would be.

We love you, Charlie.  Happy Birthday to our darling boy!

I love this post! Happy birthday to your sweet boy! 4 years fills up quickly with memories, joy and so much love. It's crazy to look back to life before your babies and it's a distant life that you'd never wish to have again just because you truly know what love is now. Hope he had a wonderful day! You're such a sweet and loving mom!
